We have these shelves in our new house that just delight me. When I first saw them, I didn’t understand them–built-in shelves to shallow for books? What did one even do with that? After getting used to moving every few years (roughly every 2 years for the last 8 years), I had forgotten that people sometimes make their home their own.
We’ve been having fun with these shelves, so much so that the kids josh me a bit about them. (“Next month’s theme is terrariums. With live miniature animals. I’m not sure how she’s going to do it yet, but I know Mom can pull it off.”) We’re far from being featured in Better Homes and Gardens, but we’re having fun. And for May and much of June, our theme has been “creepy woodlands.” We didn’t exactly decide on that–we just knew that we enjoyed painting these gnomes back in December and it was their time to shine.
Enjoy some silly photos!
