“For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another”
1 John 3:11
Hello sweet friends…with the rain from Tropical Storm Cindy, I thought we would take it inside today! I hope all of you on the Gulf Coast are safe and sound! Most of you know how much I love books…and our collection continues to grow and multiply! In fact, if I were to build a new home (which isn’t likely, since we are still living in the house that we built 38 years ago), a library would be a non-negotiable! My collection of coffee table books is around 75 to 100…yes, I have been collecting for a while! Most of them are decorating, gardening, and travel books…all the things that I love! You may have noticed that there has been a trend over the past several years to combine dining rooms and libraries…I would love book shelves in my dining room, but space just will not allow. Many suggest that formal dining rooms are no longer used, but that is definitely not true at my house! We use ours weekly for family and friends…or even just the two of us! When our dining table is not in use, I love the idea of my books being stacked and ready to be opened and read! Since I will not be hosting 4th of July activities, this was the most perfect time to play with that little idea! You are invited to sit at the dining table with me not to eat, but to do one of my favorite things…peruse a few of my books! But you better hurry..because this new twist for the dining room table won’t last forever, we’ve gotta have somewhere to eat!!
It didn’t take very long for me to assemble a few of my favorite decorating books…
