We love books in our house. Children's books, that is. I do love books for myself but I've gotten rid of bookshelves for my books. Too much clutter. Which brings me back to the bookshelf of children's books. Too much clutter.
There's no before picture so just take my word for it. I think I removed half the books for this photo. Yes, that's possible. No, it wasn't pretty before. But we got this fantastic Alphabet Photography artwork and I needed a pretty place to hang it. Thus the clearing of the shelves.
I'm pretty sure I love this space now.
Nice reflexion of my overhead light eh? It's a learning process.
The Alphabet Photography arrived well packaged and a bit more like a package from a great etsy seller than an impersonal company. Wrapped in twine with my name handwritten? Such a great surprise.
Things I love about all this:
- I love seeing handmade items out and about. Notice I popped that quilt in the last photo. A little bit of handmade everywhere.
- The Alphabet Photography. I chose the photos I wanted to use for each letter (and chose the word). There were dozens of photos to choose from for each letter but I love the architectural nature of these. And the Eiffel Tower is there too. The photographer traveled the world to take these photos herself and started this fantastic company. I love companies like that!!
- Eiffel Tower bookends. I found those at an antique store last month. I had intended to save them as a Christmas gift for my 6 year old who adores geography, monuments and books. But I couldn't wait.
- That mermaid doll. She was a handmade gift to my daughter for her birthday. Isn't she adorable? If you want one send me an email and I'll connect you to the seller. She sells at craft shows around here and her work is fantastic!
I did receive the artwork free. And I'm so glad! I love photography and I love word art. If you're in the market I can definitely recommend this. The photos, frame, mat and glass are all quality.
The perfect customized gift that includes photographs from all over the world, this is the original Alphabet Photography. Celebrity owners include: Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate, Tyra Banks, Ryan Seacrest, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, John Schneider, Nelly Furtado, and many more!
