My favorite books of 2014. - Modern Mrs. Darcy

The Secrets of Happy Families: Improve Your Mornings, Rethink Family Dinner, Fight Smarter, Go Out and Play, and Much More by Bruce Feiler #Books #Families

The true story of power, prestige and secrets in Belvoir Castle, told in THE SECRET ROOMS by Catherine Bailey, gives "Downton Abbey" a run for its money.

Love the idea of wrapping old books with shabby chic paper....going to do this in my guest bedroom!:
