I love books.
I love holding them, hoarding them and harboring them neatly on my shelves.
I have a problem.
I also love bookcases.
I love making sure the books are ordered into matching subjects and then I subject the groupings to specific shelves.
And I love making the shelves pretty. In keeping with the living room’s brown, cream and soft turquoise colorings, I painted the backboard with my favorite chalkpaint. On top of the case I put some of my favorite knick-knacks: a beautifully framed burlap monogram, our salt covenant bags + a few books.
A clock which chimes hymns, a few of Dalton’s hand-carved soup figures and a D & F seem to feel at home and keep the books company.
Are you a lover of books or shelves or both? What sort of collections fill your shelves?
With love, coffee and lots of happy books!
