Cottage Books & Magazines…
I never really thought about how many books and magazines I store around the house…I guess it’s quite an investment I’ve made!!! Some are just displayed because they are beautiful!
My favorites are anything to do with Cottage Garden and Design. I refer back to these magazines and books throughout the year depending on the season!
So much information and ideas are found that give me new inspiration & gives me plenty to plan for.
Decorating magazines and books help me escape into the pages of these lovely homes. I imagine most of these homes do not have children because they are just too pretty and untouched.
I love a recent post by Life in the Fun Lane – about what really goes on in most of our homes while staging for the photo’s we share…its called “Reality”!!! Sometimes when I upload a post, I see Charlie, my Shih tzu in the picture or some random accessory I am so used to seeing, I didn’t even notice it when I took the picture!
A few heirloom books…the Mickey Mouse Books below is what I learned to read first, now my daughter keeps them safe in her room!
I have a sitting room in the master bedroom where I have miscellaneous books stored.
This is my collection of Victoria Magazine (1999 – 2001)
Now, don’t laugh….I’m not really interested in cooking! I’ve tried – but I have such picky eaters…that its just not worth the energy! so here is my stash of dust collecting Cook Books! Not many, right?
Anyway – I hope you enjoy seeing the way some of my books and magazines are displayed, as they are always at arms length & easy for me to get to!
Happy Reading Day…
