Books have always been a treasure for me. I hold many of the stories and lessons I have learned from books near and dear to my heart. But, the value of a good book (story) isn’t what this post is about.
We recently did some updating in our living spaces. It was so needed! I’ve been relishing in the process of renewing the space. One of the things I’ve done is pulling books from this shelf and that one to create some stories with the titles of the books. Bookscaping. Maybe you do this too?
I like to tell stories with the titles, but the color of the book, and the size are also important factors for my bookscaping. It’s like putting together a puzzle…that tells a story.
This stack is coming together but still needs some tweaking. Not quite right yet.
I like to look in the bargain section of my local book store. Also, I have found some great books at insane prices at my local Half Price Bookstore. Ahhhh—-love that! I also found several beautiful art books there. They have a much larger selection that the full price books at my local chain bookstore. That makes me sad, but I am glad I found that secret source and had to share with you!
Here is a wall that is still a work in progress, but coming right along. I am hoping to add some of my art work over the TV soon. That’s another post for another day.
One more stack before I go…this one has some books I’ve collected for a long time. It was taller, but my daughter really wanted a couple of the vintage ones for her bookscaping!
