A fascinator is a chic little adornment, not quite a traditional hat but more than a headband, that suits any occasion and any time of day. Style mavens in England are credited with setting off an international fascination with fascinators; this smashing headwear now appears everywhere, donning the heads of celebrities and A-listers on the red carpet to today's fashionable brides, who are tossing aside their traditional veils for fascinators bedazzled with crystals and feathers. This is the first craft book of its kind with how-tos for fascinators, floral crowns, tiaras, and more: 25 in all, plus variations on each project—there are even sweet projects suitable for little girls. Fascinators range from dressy professional to black-tie elegant.

The New York Times Bestseller! In the aftermath of the Steroid Era that stained the game of baseball, at a time when so many players are so rich and therefore have a sense of entitlement that they haven't earned, ESPN baseball commentator Tim Kurkjian shows readers how to love the game more than ever, with incredible insight and stories that are hilarious, heartbreaking, and revealing. From what Pete Rose was doing in the batting cage a few minutes after getting out of prison, to why everyone strikes out these days and why no one seems to care, I'm Fascinated By Sacrifice Flies will surprise even longtime baseball fans. Tim explains the fear factor in the game, and what it feels like to get hit by a pitch; Adam LaRoche wanted to throw up in the batter's box. He examines the game's superstitions: Eliot Johnson's choice of bubble gum, a poker chip in Sean Burnett's back pocket. He unearths the unwritten rules of the game, takes readers inside ESPN, and reveals how Tony Gwynn made baseball so much more fun to watch. And, of course, Tim will explain to readers why he is fascinated by sacrifice flies.

From Introduction: "Origami calls for precision and imagination. If you flip through the pages of this book, you will find a great variety of familiar things conceived with imagination, style, and often a good deal of humor. Anyone can do this—it has been the special province of Oriental children for centuries—by closely following the step-by-step directions. The result is the gradual yet magical materialization of a solid object which delights a child. It is not surprising that Origami is taught in many South American schools. Patience, control, and perseverance in following all directions closely—which are the requisites of Origami—are part of the mental discipline necessary for a child’s growth into maturity. But adults enjoy Origami just as much."
