The other side........












of the bookcase that is! Shell overkill? Been finding little glass ones here and there and dig them. So all I can say is bear with me! I tucked a postcard with what else...a seashell in one of them..it was an old postcard of my grannies. Wanted to alert you that I will be doing a give away soon for my 50th post! Take Care All! Stay tuned.....xoxo, cherry

What beautiful bookshelves....and dusted too! Mine are never dusted. I also can't do very much decorating on mine because they are so stinking full of books. I do tend to decorate the top shelves since I can't easily reach my books up there. Now, those shelves REALLY never get dusted. Annually maybe. Maybe.

I just love the way you have the old books stacked with goodies on top. I agree though...where is the dust? Everytime I go to snap a picture to post I see dust and then think, ew okay not posting that! LOL I'm pretty fanatical too so I don't know how it keeps showing up in my pictures!

Hugs,
Dena

Dust? Dust you say? You don't know what dust is till you live in Central Oregon! Our soil is all sand..no mud. You were the lucky recepients of seeing the bookshelves after everything had been taken off, dusted, and redecorated rofl. Believe me I have it....everywhere. xoxo, cherry

Shells and other adorable things of Cherrys? Overkill? Not! Love, Esther

I love that postcard, and the shells! And yes, I am impressed too by the dusted shelves. Not everyone thinks to dust something before they take pictures, as is evidenced in my textures in my home slide show awhile back. :-) Luckily, dust is technically considered a texture so I was safe. It was artistic expression.

Yeah.

Lovely things Cherry! Have a great day!

You know what they say.. dust is God's way of protecting the furniture! Embrace it (if you have it)!

No, it's not overkill. I think it looks very nice. I decorate the top of my piano, a little differently for each month, and enjoy coming up with a theme. Other's seem to enjoy seeing it too. I like the way you've gathered so many charming things together, to tell your story.
Thank you very much for your thoughtful comment, in Merryville. I appreciate it, very much.

That's so pretty.
