I was looking around my house the other day. There are a LOT of bookcases. Lots of shelves. Places everywhere for books. And I love books. But the shelves certainly aren't loaded with books.
They seem to have everything else.....
Memories for me from all over the world, but not a book here....Oh, wait, there's one acting like a little shelf.
More treasures in book spaces.
Lots of room for cubbies...... but no, not a book here either.....
A few here for this and that.....

Really packed, could use a cleaning out, you say? But, each item holds a little memory for me--a history, a story of its own.
I'm just not ready to clean out, to put decorating style over life's moments.
Yet, I'm still looking for those books.......
Found buttons, hmmmm, lots of those--

And albums, pictures,

Oh, wait, here they are......

And a whole pile of vintage books,

And some classics....
I'm glad they have a good home.

We'll think about cleaning out for another day.

  1. Oh, I am the SAME way! My "bookshelves" have some books too, but mostly pretty things that I love to have around me all the time. I have a few old books too, and love to haunt the used book store for that next perfect old book!
