I tend to group books by size and that's it. And people think I'm anal for doing that. By color would be quite a task!

I also find I love the artwork from book covers and have at least 5 book covers that I located the artwork for and framed in my home.

I wish I could post a photo. I have converted my grandmother's china hutch into my book case and meditation altar. Books and treasures...cuz this girl "ain't got no china".

I'm pretty sure the wax paper is there to help protect the paper, but wax paper gets wet too...I wonder if it would help waterproof it it the interior space was "modge-podged"?


How To Make Your Own Book Planters for Succulents

Do you ever create links on this website to click and print instructions (projects, articles) etc? I would love to try this project at some point.

While I agree that it would be hard to destroy a book, nothing says it must be a vintage book...There are books I've read that I truly didn't like well enough to pass on to someone else...or perhaps the book is totally falling apart from the binding and having it restored just isn't feasible. That would be a good use of a book that might otherwise end up dumped. I might even look at the AAUW book fair for something with an interesting beaten up cover.

Why is the ToTo soaking tub so freaking angular? Why would I want to lay back in a tub that might cut my neck off if I leaned it back? Improve on the curves of a comfy clawfoot.

Personally I gravitate more and more to original old designs...finding a tub that someone is using as a horse trough...the digital fancy stuff simply has more parts and issues that will need repair and cost too much. I'm all for water saving measures, but other than that...give me the old stuff...tried, true, sturdier.

Our place is 550 square feet. We have two of the largest recliners we could find (we're tall), and a reclining love seat and a captain's chair in the living room...all large. Maybe we're breaking the rules, but we love it. Also in the living room is my grandmother's china hutch...filled with books. We have a Queen Sized bed with the large headboard with side cupboards (the only furniture in the bedroom). I say...rules be damned. People should have what they like and feel comfortable in. I don't know who died and left certain "experts" in charge of what's "acceptable" in home or personal fashion. *groan*...just be happy people.

Oh heck people...get over yourselves with the deer/fur comments. Each person decides these issues for themselves and don't need your "help". It looks like a very (admirably) tidy guy space. It seems a little dark for my taste, but you've done a great job!
