Hey, it’s me! I never remember to take photos at events so I am grateful to @jenmiller217 for this shot from the trunk show @kylewhiteink organized during the #sycamorepumpkinfest House Walk. Thanks to all of you for coming out - what a fun morning! #hiimcourtneyhmc #madebylarking #wearyourbooks
Local IL friends: I’ll be slinging my bookish wares at this trunk show (see what @kylewhiteink did there? 🎃🐘) on the Saturday of #sycamorepumpkinfest and would love to see you! #northernillinois #illinoisartist #onlyinsycamore #proudlydekalb #supportlocalartists #midwestliving
🚨 cute customer alert 🚨 Thanks so much, @haley_kamilla, for the super fun addition to my #madebylarking photos! #wearyourbooks #happinessishandmade #booknerdsunite
September has flown by with all kinds of good and bad calendar fillers - but I am so glad I had time to read this delight of a book in between all my rushing around. It made me want to both stay in with all my favorite old books (Jane Austen! Henry James!) but also jump on a plane to take those trips I’ve always wanted to before it’s too late: Ireland, Vienna, Munich, Sweden, Wales. Have you read this (or seen the film)? Where do you want to jet off to - or what classic would you love to find a beautiful copy of? #84charingcrossroad #lovemylibrary #larkingaboutwithbooks  #booksandtravel #septemberreads

I cannot stop gushing over how beautifully @hollymgiauque styled one of my dictionary botanical pendants in this photo of her amazing @smokeandsage fall vintage shop preview. Go check it out - and psssst: these pendants (and my whole shop!) are BOGO until the end of the month ✨ #madebylarking

Cozy Friday vibes ☕️🍂📚 I’m thinking about introducing a jewelry series with portraits of beloved authors. Who would you like to see included? I’m thinking L. M. Montgomery is definitely on the list! #houseofdreams #fridayvibes #feelinglikefall #currentreads #juliemorstad #candlewickpress #riflepaperco #katiedaisy #jacksonrosecandles #whimsicalperspective
In January of this year, I deleted all the social media apps off my phone and downloaded the Kindle app instead. I still read lots of paper books (like my current #TBR pile here), but having quick phone access to an e-book rather than mindless scrolling has increased my reading totals and my overall happiness. How do you squeeze in reading time? #larkingaboutwithbooks

Hi there, friends! I’ve been away from this space for most of 2018 - my shop sales have been the same as ever, so I’m trying to figure out who I am here in addition to my @courtney.hmc profile. I just finished my second #100dayproject of the year and have so much catching up to do on you all and what’s happening in this corner of social media. Hope to be here a bit more frequently soon! ❤️📚 #larkingaboutwithbooks #janeaustenfan

Going on a “shopping spree” at the library and leaving with a bag bursting with books and all your money still in your pocket is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday. #thebestthingsinlifearefree #lovemylibrary

How do you all decorate for the holidays? ✨
Whole house bedecked or just a few touches? Do you display holiday books? Decorate all at once or slowly throughout the season?
✨
We pretty much stick to one room of our house with a tree and decorations - and the rest looks pretty much like always. I love putting favorite ornaments on shelves so they don’t get lost on the tree - my mom always hid elves and angels and funny little gnomes in and among the books on our shelves growing up! It’s a fun hide-and-seek treasure hunt for my daughters, too. #christmasshelfie

When you wake up at 5am, 9am is the perfect time for a #teaandbooks break ☕️

Went “Secret Santa” shopping this morning for a local high schooler. The good news? All she wanted was books and art supplies - my kinda girl📚🎨🙌🏻 The bad news? I realized I graduated 😵18 years ago 😵 and have no idea what teenagers like now that I’m not in the classroom 👵🏻

Back to my usual posting format and frequency after this, I promise - last day of 20 percent off the shop! Link in profile.
