Yesterday, after I had spent the past couple of days with two of my grandkids, with one of them sleeping over, I felt exhausted. But then I went to my daughter’s salon for a new styling experience, and I felt totally renewed.
She gave me some lighter highlights, which made my whole being feel new.
Naturally I turned my attention to some things that had been bugging me. Like the overwhelming book stacks in my office. Many of them are new TBRs, but I also had several stacks of books to reread, which made me look at the whole thing with new eyes.
So I opened my eyes and readjusted my attitude about the little country cupboards in my dining area that hold Disney and Engelbreit collectibles, and thought: what if?
Sometimes we can have the best of both worlds. Collectibles and books, living side by side.
In the upper and lower shelves, I still have my Coca Cola stuff.
Now take a look at this one….
My collections, living side by side: books and memorabilia.
I have one more “country cupboard” in this room, but it holds my vintage dishes.
Now take a look at my newly designed stacks of TBRs….
It looks better, I think. Especially since the only stacks on my coffee table now are the “up next” books (Photo at the top of the post).
This is my version of “spring cleaning”… LOL. What is yours?
