I never thought about how much we use our hands...it takes me twice as long to do everything. Ladies, ever try and hook your bra one-handed? Don't even get me started on my hair or my daughter's....Little by little I am adjusting and am now able to finally type without a one-handed chicken peck.
Now on with the show....
I was looking around my house the other day and noticed I use books a lot as decorating accessories. Rarely jut standing on end in a bookcase. It seems I am addicted to using them as pedestals for other accessories.
I've heard that books give insight into the person(s) living in the home....can you tell we like to travel?
I think this is one of the few places I have books on end. The books on the far right are from my childhood - I didn't have to buy Pottery Bard vintage books. Wait! Does this mean I am vintage???
More vintage books from my childhood.
...and a few more examples of books as accessories
These are the only examples I could find where the books are more function than form. Our nightstands are too short for our bed. (Redoing them is on my never-ending list)
I heard a long time ago that you are supposed to remove the book jacket. I've noticed lately that I see books displayed both ways. In some cases the books absolutely look better without the jackets, but in others I think I prefer the jacket. Weird right?
Do you decorate with books? With or without the cover?
