Books affect each and every one of us in so many ways.
Whether they be of a source of learning, vast resources,
or a wonderful source of entertaining.
I find books enhance our lives and also our decor, especially in my home.
I love searching for great antique or vintage books
of a great author or just ones that are just beautiful in appearance.
Like the antique Charles Dickens books above or the vintage atlas books that
I love to collect. I find them fascinating and beautiful.
You will find books tucked into many things in my home,
such as this sweet vintage wooden case with the French chicken stickers.
Or tucked into a basket, like this vintage French wine bottle picnic basket.
How about tucking in some books into a vintage ironstone foot bath?
I, like many of you, use great books to elevate items
for a more interesting effect of varying heights, integral for a great table vignette.
Need to make a lamp taller?
Put it on a stack of pretty books that coordinate with the lamp.
A book can set the tone, like these vintage French books.
Books can be positioned in many different ways.
Like the traditional way of standing upright.
Or laid flat on a surface with its beautiful cover front and center,
helping to showcase an item.
Speaking of showcasing, I leave you with one of my favorite pitchers
filled with flowers sitting on top of some of my favorite books!
A favorite combination.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hope it is a great one for you!
