Yes, I am a book junky. My favorite books are the old school books, antique leather books, old prayer books and Bibles…. and the cuter the graphics on the spines, the better. There is something about books dated from the late 1800’s through the 1940’s that tug at the old heart strings. From the adorable drawings and graphics to the musty smell of the old paper - old books are one of my favorite things to look for while out shopping.
Throughout the house are stacks of them. Some hold inquisitive gnomes (below) rest upon some old leather bound books and others are contained within the confines of an antique book holder (above).
They aren’t just for reading, but for decorating with, too. Not only do they help with layering vignettes, but they add color and dimension, too.
Hooked on books....should have been a librarian!
