'Window Shopping'

It's a really hot day here today, the thermometer has seen the otherside of 37degrees... eek & yes, that is celsius!
So, what's a girl to do but to stay inside where there is air conditioning and a computer?? ...she goes 'window shopping' on Fishpond!
Here's some great crafty books that I found.... there are quite a few books bringing what is old style fashion to modern day, which is rather cool in my opinion!
