My Book Collection

Lesa over at baja-greenawalts-cozybooknook.blogspot.com had a post about using old books in your decorating. She had some adorable pics posted showing the ways of displaying your treasures.

I have been using books throughout my house since.....
  well forever. 
Every time I go to an antique store or thrift store I always check out the books. I buy the ones that have interesting titles or incredibly well loved covers. I wandered around today and took some pictures of my collection to share with all of you.


The eyeglasses belonged to my grandmother



I keep a few favorites on my nightstand


My foyer is home to my 1914 typewriter and some classics



In my "Mom Cave" aka "The Library" aka our living room I keep a mix of old and new


On my bookshelf I have all of my treasures books, vintage cameras, photos and vintage bottles

Someday I hope to add one of my own books to this collection.....that is if life ever allows me the time to  complete one single thought. Until then I will just enjoy the works of writers past and present.

I'd love to see some of your thrifty book bargains-- if you ever post any please come link up to our Bargain Book Bonanza linky party on Mondays! It is for any new and used books scored on sale or dirtcheap!

Thanks for the shoutout! I'm really enjoying your eclectic blog-- I added it to my sidebar faves today.
