Czeeeeść! Czas się chyba pożegnać, prawda? Jeśli myśleliście, że stąd znikam, to byliście w błędzie 😁 Czeka mnie w przyszłym tygodniu przeprowadzka, w końcu do własnego gniazda(ćwir, ćwir). Co prawda mieszkanie nie jest jeszcze wykończone, więc będziemy mieszkać w warunkach bojowych, ba, nie mam nawet jeszcze łóżka 🙈 Czeka mnie misja życia 😂 Wrzucam tego posta właściwie po to, by przekazać Wam, że muszę na jakiś czas zniknąć, bo nie czytam, bo nie piszę, bo nie mam czasu na insta, ale obiecuję (jeśli jeszcze tu będziecie) że jak w końcu ogarnę swoje życie to wrócę 😁 Zróbcie ładnie papa mojej biblioteczce i widzimy się za jakiś czas 😉 PS. Gdyby udało mi się znaleźć jakimś cudem wolną chwilę to na pewno coś tutaj naskrobię 😉 Miłego! #bookstagram#bookstagrampl#bookstagrammers#bookshelfdecor#bookshelves#bookpost#bookshelfie#booklover#booknerd#bookaholic#bookalicious#totalbooknerd#ilovereading#ilovebooks

Wahoo, Spring Break!!! 🎉Obviously, the start of the break began with an obligatory Orthodontist visit. 🦷Yay! That’s how all breaks should start. The oldest is now sporting her second round of braces💸. Spring colours lilac & white... just like hyacinths, but like way, way more expensive... Can you tell I’m slightly peeved at spending a ridiculous amount of cash on braces?? 😖I mean, I could have spent that on a zillion things in this old house, but perfect teeth are more pressing... I guess.🙄 All the parents sat in the waiting room, & there were a lot, shared the same sentiment. We also commented that when we were children (many moons ago, but still after they dished out wooden dentures) only a few kids wore braces. Now every kid has them... I guess crooked teeth used to fly here like it did in England.... my husband always likes to remind me that the girls ‘teeth situation’ was probably inherited from me because I’m English... 🏴& we all know what they say about English & their teeth...🙄I remind him, that when he married me, the nice accent & dazzling wit, came with the teeth! 😬 Anyhoo, as my cash has now gone on sorting out my girls pearly whites, I have resorted to buying $35 bookshelves off craigslist.. the lumber alone would have cost more, as my husband & I could barely move it into the house... mind you, we’re no Dwayne Johnson, so that’s probably not indicative of weight... It is definitely sturdy though & now full of all manner of paraphernalia... I’ve just ordered some Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue paint to refinish it with, & I’m currently mulling over whether to wallpaper the back of it... 🤨That’s if I have any money left after the second daughters pallet expander gets fitted next week. 😩#dailymusing #shelving#bookshelf#bookshelfdecor#bookshelfstyling#interiorstyle#myinteriorstyle#myhome#myhometoday#mytradhome#mytraditionalhome#mytraditionalhomestyle#thecollectedhome

I just love old books. I’m forever picking them up at vintage fairs, garage sales and my favorite second hand stores. But I have to admit, I rarely read them. I mostly just like to decorate with them! I love the warmth and timelessness they add to a shelf or table. I never thought this was unusual until I recently offered some old red books that I wasn’t going to use anymore to a friend who has a lot of red in her home. Perfect decor, right? Her first question was “Well what are the titles?” I replied, "Uhhhh, no idea!" 😂 But being the good friend that I am, I obediently reported back to her each of the titles. She thoughtfully responded “Well, maybe I could read the Indian history one to my granddaughters...but nah, I'll pass." I was a bit taken aback and I felt so sorry for those beautiful little books that I discreetly tucked them away with my RED Christmas decorations. I’ll certainly enjoy them then, in my own special way! The books in this photo do have some sentimental value in addition to their beauty. They were in our home when I was growing up in the 60's. They're a set of various children's stories, my favorite of which was Black Beauty. Not sure I actually read all of them but I loved looking at them on the shelf just like I do today. Who knew back then that one day they would become my favorite "old books"? How about you, do you like to decorate with vintage books? If so, do you actually read them? 😊 #vintagebooks#oldbooks#vintagehomedecor#vintagelove#beautifulbooks#tomsawyer#kirklands#bookshelfdecor#beautifuldecor#happyhome#midcenturymodern#prettythings
