Hey friends…new and old.
When I look around at my house, I see lots of favorite things that I use to decorate with.
I love galvanized anything and have acquired several pieces in the last few years. I love old bottles, especially my favorite blue green color. I also love old books and have quite a few stacks of them lying around. I think books are great filler items which, in my opinion, means they fill a space nicely and add good texture.
Books and hand towels sit in this great old locker basket in our guest bathroom.
A stack of old books with great patina fills this little area in nicely on our bedroom dresser.
An empty space under a little chair is filled up with two very worn books. All of this sits atop an old white cabinet in our living room.
Books and vintage white pitchers go well together.
These cubbies have always been difficult for me to fill. Books seem to work nicely.
This stack of books give great height, color and texture on this white secretary.
And, the best Book of all…the Bible. This Bible has been passed down for generations from my dad’s side of the family. Such an honor to have it in my home.
Great thing about books is that you can generally find them very cheap. Most of mine have come from thrift shops, yardsales, and a few were passed down from my grandmother. Cool thing is that she would write her name in them and if she liked them or not. Love that...
