photo (27)When we moved last year, many people thought I would be MOST excited about having a second bathroom after 10 years of sharing one among our family of four. They were wrong. I walked through this empty (at the time) front room with great light and declared that it was MINE (!) and I was going to finally have my library. What turned out even better than I had anticipated was that I found some great colors among my books and shelved them accordingly which I love. Below are some of my shelves and I’ll point out a few favorites among the titles.
