Recently, a fellow BYW alum and author of Heartfire At Home posted an invitation to join in a Lovely Links party. This week's theme was bookcases, inspired by her love of books. Since I share this particular passion, I thought I'd play along by digging up a couple of my favorite bookcase photographs from years past. Enjoy! (And maybe even play along?)
My Creative Environment
This bookcase no longer resides in this particular spot in my home, but I still love this image. The light streaming in from the dining room, the colors...
This gorgeous china cabinet is what replaced the bookcase in the first photo. It originally belonged to my maternal grandparents. When clearing out their house after my grandfather's death, none of us wanted to part with this beautiful piece of furniture, though none of us needed a china cabinet either. We decided to part with it, but at the last minute I changed my mind. I'm so glad I did, because it makes a stunning bookcase, and I'm able to remember my grandparents every time I see or use it.
Do any of your books or bookcases have a story behind them?
