Reading Nook Part 2 - In progress

In my August finds post,
I may have hinted at a new obsession | collection

Okay, really, it is two new obsessions:
vintage children's books.

I do work in education after all.
No, I am not an educator.

Let it settle in.

Across from my reading nook 
There was an empty space just big enough for one of my fave Craigslist deals ever
I redid the chairs for the dining room and you can see them in this post.
But the table...

I painted the top with chalkboard paint and started on the sides.  You'll have to wait for that.
What I did finally get around to though
is that since we built the built in shelves for the office downstairs,
I have these bookcases.
I stacked them on top of the table.
After I cut off about 18 inches from the top so that they would fit.

Gave me lots of display space for thinks like this

and this

and across the top, I just laid out my newest collection

Along the side, in the mini windows letting in all of the light
that is a rare sight in these parts,
I lined up the first collection that stole my heart

What are you collecting lately?
Any other camera, vintage children's books or globe collectors out there?
Do you have a globe that lights up?
I might or might not have one of those...(smile)

  1. Wow, love the globe collection. That microscope under glass is pretty neat too.


You KNOW you have an opinion about it, already. So spill it. Spark up a conversation...
