We placed the chair and ottoman facing the window in our bedroom and with a little ‘tweaking’ we managed to get a small bookcase close enough to hold some of my old Poetry books and Bibles.
We turned the ottoman the other way and it makes it look a little more like a chaise now.
I am constantly moving things around on the shelves.
I liked this container I found at the thrift store but not it’s big golden handle so I used ivy to cover it.
And last week I bought this beautiful old Bible, published in the 1890s! What a treasure.
Look at the gold on the edges!
(I didn’t pay much for it…I’m embarrassed to even say!)
I have several old books of poetry that I got at annual library book sales years ago before they started marking them up closer to their value. I think at the first few sales all of the books were the same price and no one cared about poetry. I could stand in that section all day and very few people stopped to browse.
I’m so glad I got them way back then!
I love old books best!
I’m joining Brenda at the Cozy Little House for Tweak it Tuesday.
