Purgin' and Packin'

Yep... still purgin' and packin'.  My house looks like an episode of hoarders.
I'd post pictures but nobody should be forced to look at that...

Instead, I'll post this photo of Jay and I attempting to move all our books. 

Like my socks?

Kidding, of course.  

But we do have a whole lotta books at our house.  I packed them into a jillion boxes last night.  Now I'm thinking about where I could sneak in a library wall in our new house.  I love the look of neatly organized books, especially if there's a sliding ladder too.

This one would do perfectly.  Schoolhouse lights, glossy black floor, little library room framed in gorgeous windows.  

I love the worn texture of this room.  Comfy seating and that painting hung on the face of the shelves.

Really, that green velvet curtain?  Stunning.  You can put a library anywhere.  Living room, family room, bathroom.....

This one is my favourite for so many reasons.  First off, you know I'm a total sucker for a built-in bench.  I love the charcoal wall and artwork, that swing arm lamp!, the mix of objets and books on the shelves.  Sophisticated yet cozy.  Love.  

  Hope you're doing something fun this weekend... instead of packing.
