Stamps, blocks and prints make home decoration both fun and easy. The book opens with a section on materials, equipment and techniques, which shows you in next to no time every skill you are going to need to make wonderful interior designs. This detailed section explains how to make stamps from wood, linoleum, foam and rubber, how to design patterns, and how to stamp different surfaces for a professional finish.
The projects section then demonstrates how to create eye-catching motifs on walls and surfaces in every room in the house. Transform a dull space into a Tuscan wall frieze, create a cool atmosphere with a sophisticated Scandinavian-influenced stamp theme, make the most of corridors, entrance halls and landings with warm all-over patterns, decorate larger rooms with stripes, floral sprigs or Medieval motifs, and bring a child's room to life with anything from polka dots or stars to tropical fish or apple trees.
Virtually any surface can be stamped from an entire room to a window-frame border highlighting a special view. There is a choice of motifs to suit any taste from folk art and heraldry to designs drawn from the seashore, flowers, plants and stars. This essential guide to stamping designs on walls and surfaces is a must for every home decorator.

It was a typical hot summer afternoon when Cinnamon and I first kissed at Hinders Creek. Later that day, while she was innocently riding the worn tire swing that hung above the flowing waters, I had a profound realization that would alter our lives forever. ---- "Rubber Rocketship" is a very touching, quick read that mirrors how life-long love can transcend loss-even loss caused by cancer.
The Stampeder, by Samuel Alexander White, first published in 1910. Britton's steam-yacht tore out its lungs in protest at the black smudge of a coasting vessel reeling straight across its bows. The siren bellowed thrice in a choking fury of warning and denunciation till the echoes boomed over the Algerian harbor and floated high up to the Mustapha Superieure, where English lords slept at peace in luxurious hotels. Disconcerted by this tremendous volume of sound, the coaster vacillated, veered and yawed as if under some drunken steering-hand, to leap forward unwarily and bury her weather-beaten prow in the white side of the Mottisfont. The terrific impact swept the yachts forecastle clear of snoring sailors, and, after shooting the temporary owner lieadlong from his berth, commenced to polish the companionway passage with his features, an operation which he instinctively though not wholly wakefully resented by a frantic grasping for something substantial."
