Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

  3. Oh my goodness, that Julia Child book looks amazing. I'm adding that to my list of books to give as gifts so I remember to pick it up for one of my nieces for Christmas. She'll love it!

  4. Ooh I love your animated Canva! I do love that app. As for the important part the books, I must check them out I’m beginning to add France to the list of countries I obsess over - currently Japan and all of Scandinavia!

    Thanks for sharing!

  12. I should really just start here with the books on your list. Every July I swear I am going to start and then I don't. Dang. Will I ever get to visit Paris for real? Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great week! Stay safely away from the coronavirus!
