Bookish Style

10/11/2011






I'm always looking for creative ways to house books. How do you store them?

P.S. Our bookcase! By the way, you see that little bird on my shelf that was a gift from my Dad to my Aunt many many years ago? He found it at some random shop in San Francisco the 1960s. Well...you can buy the exact same one at Anthropologie! Crazy. Thanks for spotting this Angela!
P.P.S. And a very special one from my Oma!
P.P.P.S. Remember Coco Draws? Giveaway tomorrow!!!! So excited!

I love decorating with old colorful hard cover books! Bookshelves make a room soo cozy! Just got some old hard cover colorful binding children books at a book sale, 6 books cost $1.75 total!
