    An armchair bears evidence of Annie's weakness for vintage volumes. Perched atop the book stack is another Brahler signature: an old sugar bowl. Repurposed as a vase, it holds roses from her favorite floral resource: Sam's Club. Read more: Country House Decor in the City - William Howard Thompson House - Country Living

I have this beautiful journal, a sweet gift from lovely friends Denni & Troy

Love old books ... great to decorate with, warms a room. Zeggen ze. Maar zo behandel ik ook oude boeken niet. Dit is mishandeling, met een decoratieve hoek af. Spijt me, maar ik vind dit dus helemaal niets!

"A good book should leave you...slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it." #quotes #reading

Antique vellum books are getting quite popular in decorating circles. They are very beautiful but as an avid reader my biggest pet peeve is book shelves filled with "books by the yard" that look good but you know no one reads. I love my books, re read them over and over and even though I love this look- its not for me.

It's nice that all my books can fit in my pc and Kindle but nothing beats the sight of them piled high on the floor and stuffed into bookshelves like in a second hand bookstore.
