Inspiration for our wall of bookcases!

I am so excited!!  Have I ever mentioned that I work at a snail's pace and that I'm easily distracted? No?  REally?   Well, let's just say it takes me a while to get rooms decorated.  I mean, we have only been in this house for 18 months and the addition has only been completed for something like 2 months. ha ha! Years ago my dear sweet husband used to "encourage" me by reminding me that "Rome wasn't built in a day!"  Now, he just smiles at me!  He is so understanding!!!

Well the bookcases came in today!  bookcases?  What bookcases?  OH did I forget to mention that?  See for the past 21 years we have lived with mis-matched bookcases in all sorts of shapes and sizes.... yard sale finds, gifts from my father-in-law, unassembled unfinished types.  You get the picture.  Well this time we took the plunge and bought 5, dare I say FIVE matching bookcases.  They make my heart swoon... (I know who uses words like swoon any more??? apparently I do! words like swoon, beaucoup (pronounced boo-coo, yep nothing like a little bit of redneck french to spice things up.... and to make our boys and/or their friends roll their eyes!! ha ha!)  Back to the book cases.... I would love to show you a picture of them assembled and staged in our living room aka "the library" but they are not assembled and I did a bad thing.... I mean really bad!!  I lost the charging cable for the camera.  It was one of those cases of me putting it somewhere other than where it belonged (the camera bag) but in a place that made so much more sense.  Did I mention I get distracted easily?  Which sometimes translates into I forget things...  Yes you guessed it.  I do NOT remember where I put the charger for the camera battery... and the battery is dead.  Soooo...... for now a picture of one of the inspirations for the bookcase wall.

(I know this is such a long drawn out process but it will be worth it in the end! I promise... really it will!)

So now I am off to start clearing the area and start assembling bookcases... did I mention there are 5 to assemble?  If I start to look dazed and confused PLEASE remind me that this really was a good idea...


  1. boo-coo... my whole life we said it like that (my family = very redneck)
    whoa! those bookcases are going to be fabulous!
    I can't wait to see 'em!

  2. HA! I say swoon and "boocoo" too! :) Can't wait to see your bookcases all put together and filled! :) Yay, for matching bookcases!
