Her new packaging is awesome and the products are packaged in biodegradable & compostable clear sleeves. These bags are PLA products which mean they are made from plants! If you don’t have a compost pile, just bury this bag in the back garden. 🙂 Check out her fabulous Etsy Boutique and The Laundry Bag.
There’s little in life that I love more than a good book. Perhaps the only “treasure” in my house I have more of than piles fabric (and dust bunnies) is a collection of books. And that collection does not discriminate: textbooks, notebooks, coffee table books, trashy paperback books, literary elite books, foreign-language books (that I pretend I can read). You name it, I probably have it.
But can I tell you where it is? Perhaps not. I have books in my bedroom, in my closets, in my garage, in my living room, in my sewing/guest room. I’m pretty sure I have some books stacked in my hallway and I know I have even more books in my bedroom at my mother’s house 350 miles away.
I fell in love with my little post-war cottage when I saw it. Its gleaming hardwood floors, “charming” vintage bathroom, refurbished kitchen, and enormous light-infused windows. And I didn’t listen when certain persons reminded me that moving from a 1600 sq-foot duplex rental into a baaaaarely 1000 sq-ft. home might not be the best choice.
But those floors! Those windows!
I bought it. And I parted with boxes and boxes of books. But there are still more.
But I have a dream for those books—and it doesn’t involve adding on a library wing. I just need a little nook. No, not the digital e-reader—anything but that!
Although I’d love a bay window with a window seat like I had when I was a little girl, that is not in the cards. But as my amateur telestrator below shows, I could very easily get some bookshelves (either the Ikea variety or if I’m lucky some custom built-ins), hang my beloved red dupioni silk drapes between the shelves to create a little cove, and put a cozy little velveteen-covered chair in the space between. (Pardon the illustration: I’m working with primitive tools here over the Christmas break, folks.)
What décor dreams can you make a reality in the new year?
PS—I’d also like to fill my shelves with these lovelies:
