Bibiliophiles Unite!

We are bibliophiles. We love books, know most of the librarians at several libraries in town, buy books, borrow books, lend books, read books, quote books, re-read books and generally surround ourselves with pages and thoughts and ideas.
 
Our friend L (dd of Jannell, Crafter Hall of Famer and fellow bibliophile) showed up at Tutoring Center with some amazing Book Letters as Christmas Presents! I am smitten!

Having just cleaned out of library, I have books galore laying around, ready for a re-purposed life. And, thanks to Pinterest and search engines, there are lots of ideas for inspiration.
Letters, jewelry, furniture and decorations! I'm adding to my list of cool projects to do!

I love all those ideas!! I'm inspired, but I don't know if I'll actually DO anything with that inspiration! LOL I am saving the links to come back to in the New Year though. I especially love that chair. (I'm a confirmed bibliophile too.)

thanks for visiting and following my blog. I've just signed up to follow yours as well.
