shelf space

I'm running out of shelf space.

This--well, it's a pretty good thing.

It means I'm one--tiny--step closer to this.

A girl can dream, can't she?

I keep planning out my future house in my head (sadly, still such a long, long way off). Most of the rooms revolve around books: where I can display them and ways to create interesting sights for the walls.

Oh. I do love everything about that space. It's casual and lived in. And, I think, it boasts quite a lot of scholarly charm--you know, the way I used to imagine professors' offices to look? I was kind of sad when I discovered that so many of them didn't. That, though, is a different story.

I've created a Pinterest page for such things--one for books, and one for all those other inside spaces. (Ones for lots and lots of other things, too. It's a new, procrastinatory addiction of mine).
I hope you're having a wonderful week.

(The picture credit for the above will be found on that very Pinterest account, by the way. It's a good, good way to cite sources).


  1. I love that image! Definitely a charming space.

  2. oh - I LOVE that picture. One day, I will have books coming out of my ears...

  3. Oh wow, what a beautiful space! It reminds me of Black Books...but much less messy haha. We are so similar!

  4. Agreed! That is absolutely perfect:)
    I'm still getting rid of a bunch of books though, but I would love a house like that<3

  5. I love messy spaces when they're filled with books and good feelings. My room, is a disaster. As if the wild earthquake shook my house. Clothes splattered everywhere. I can barely open my door. I think it's time for a cleaning session..

    Love your blog!!!
