I now have 3 tabs!

I now have 3 tabs! Just in time for Three or More Tuesday with The Gypsy's Corner.

Have you noticed the new tab at the top of the page?  It is called Christi’s Reads. I am and always have been an avid reader. I wanted to share with you what I am reading now and what I have read in the past that I really enjoy. I would love to hear about what others are reading and what you enjoy.

If you are a reader, you are probably like me and always looking for a new good book to read. Let’s share our ideas and reviews! I hope you will enjoy this new feature and I would love to have you participate.

To let me know what you are reading or have read and would recommend, email me at christi@asouthernlife.com. I’ll work on getting the comments to work on that page but in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to send your reviews and recommendations to be by email!

Happy reading!

It's also 2nd Time Around Tuesday. Seen that picture at the top before? Yes, it is from a previous tablescape. Looks like a quiet spot for a good read.
