Man oh man…what a weekend.
We went bowling, had a bonfire, and worked in the yard all weekend long. I even got a little sunburn on my nose. I guess I forgot to go all lifeguard with the zinc-blue nose. Did you do anything fun?
This should be an easy one for everyone…in case your weekend wore you out. Even those of you that went out riding mechanical bulls can handle this.
We all have those books that are just lying around collecting dust. If you like to read like us then you probably have tons and tons of them. You may choose to dress them up, or put them in a gorgeous library, or you may want to clear up some shelf space for your new adventures. I don’t think this Monday needs much convincing, but just in case.
Can you even imagine a life without books? It is so sad that this is such a reality for so many little ones. Let’s help them out shall we.
Speaking of books, got anything amazing you’ve been reading?
What was your favorite book as a child?
Have you seen the “book instead of card” trend catching on for showers?
Inspired by the book “Every Monday Matters“
I have been staring at a few books that just don’t make sense for quite some time now. They aren’t Quantum Physics or anything, just mismatched craziness. The problem is I can’t throw them out. One is a Barbie chronicle that any girl who grew up with Barbies would cherish like their first born….maybe. One is a St. Louis landmark book, and one is a Ripley’s believe it or not book with a super fancy 3-d cover. None of them are very “pretty” per say but I love looking through their pages and learning.
You caught a glimpse of them in this post. And I was so embarrassed of their mis-matchedness that I actually hid them in this post.
I finally decided to do something about it.
Super fast, super easy project comin atcha…
You want to know how easy this was?
I walked downstairs and dug out some pretty scrapbook paper and the I just made simple bookcovers. Twenty minutes tops.
Now I can just sit and stare at my pretty books.
Which brings me to my next point…I am so happy that publishers have started making book covers almost art-like. All of the books I have bought recently are gorgeous enough on their own I will never have to wallpaper books again. I’m not hating on Barbie and Mr. Ripley, ok maybe I am.
Have you bought any pretty books lately? Ever dressed up your library?
