Paradise Found...................



I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
Jorge Luis Borges




The library projects continues. It is still very messy as there is still too much furniture in this itty-bitty tiny room. Stuff needs to be sold, moved out .... just taken away.



I am taping for touch ups and I need to caulk more. Baseboard needs to be caulked, taped and painted. And there is still another 7 feet or so of bookcases to build. I haven't decided on molding yet. That will come.




But for now..... I am extremely content. I love this room.



It's amazing the comfort one finds when surrounded by books.

Looks lovely. I really like your cross stitch picture. What a great motto!

Carol -- My grandmother gave me that kit to do when I was in college. I have carried it around for decades and still love it.

Barb -- it would be cozier if there was heat upstairs (old farmhouse syndrome) but I love being here! Just throw an afghan around my shoulders and I am fine!

Ive wanted a library too and now I have one. Well its not all in one room but I bought 5 bookcases and for Valentines day my bf built them for me. He knows I have alot of books, love them more than anything and need them around me. Now thats love. And so I have a library corner in one dead area of my hallway. Two in the living room. One outside the kitchen and one in my bedroom. I am a happy lady.
