Not Just For Reading




























I took a little trip to our local thrift store this afternoon with Daphne -- and I was on a mission to find books.  I didn't plan to read any of these books. It was all about the color and sizes because I plan on placing them on the built-in shelves in our new home to add a pop of color. My inspiration? Etsy. Look up "vintage book sets". There are some brilliant people out there who have been shopping their local thrift stores also and putting together vintage books in coordinating colors. Some of the sets are going for as high as $70. I'll admit, I was willing to spend $30 on a set and then I realized that I could make my own. My total bill? $6.50. Fist pump!
