My recent bookstore visit in DC sensitized me a bit to the idea of books in paper form, and how sad and sorry I would be if real books went the way of the dodo. Then when I was wondering around Pinterest, I took a look at my own boards (particularly my Favorite Places and Spaces board) and realized just how often I picked book-laden rooms to pin.
So, of course when I was decluttering the downstairs of all the newspapers, magazines, library books, recent acquisitions (thank you, Murder & Mayhem in Muskego, for the free books!), it struck me that what I was sticking on my shelves and what I was sticking on Husband’s shelves were pretty darn different.
I won’t show Mark’s office (very cluttered), but his books there are design books. Makes sense, he’s a graphic designer. My office?
Short stories, writing “how-to” books, note cards, and an assortment of magazines. You’ll note the pug decor.
Here’s another angle so I can show off my Nicole Hollander art. Original Sylvias! Hand signed. She rocks. You might be wondering about the green jaguar. Go ahead and wonder. It might be my wild side coming out. Or not.
