Used book & homeschool curriculum sale

Sometimes I think one of my underlying reasons for homeschooling is because it gives me a legitimate reason to buy ALL. the. books. But I only have so many bookshelves, and we plan to downsize our house soon, so it’s time again to clear some shelves.

IMPORTANT NOTES: All books are in good to excellent condition unless otherwise noted; all books are paperback unless otherwise noted. Payment accepted via PayPal only. Prices include shipping to the continental U.S. if you purchase at least $15 worth of material.

**If interested in any of the items below, email me directly.

I’ll update this page often as items are sold.

Week-end: links & life {vol. 33}

“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it: memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.”
-Tad Williams


Though we plan to sell this house in the foreseeable future, it’s doggone cute and I’ll appreciate it for however long we live here. We’re having it painted next week!

Fair Trade Friday: pretty goods, great cause

If you like pretty things, and if you want to do good in the world whenever you can, then you’ll love Fair Trade Friday as much as I do. Founded by Mercy House Kenya (a ministry I already love and support), Fair Trade Friday is about empowering marginalized women near and far.

The goods are lovely; the cause is even better.

Like this pretty little teal paper bead bracelet from Kenya. I’m not a big jewelry-wearer but I’ve worn this several times since it came in a happy little box a couple of weeks ago. It’s lightweight, casual enough for me (I’m not a fancy girl), and goes with all sorts of things.
