Beautiful Books

I never thought it would happen, but I’ve given up paper books for an eReader.  As much as I love the feel of a real book in my hands, it’s so much more convenient to carry around a digital book (or three).  However, just because I don’t read paper books as often, it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate their beauty.  Here are some gorgeous libraries – a little literary eye candy for a Friday!

I was looking through the pins on my Decorating Ideas board on Pinterest recently, and I noticed that I have a strong affection for yellow.  I’ve always loved the colour yellow, more specifically the mid-century ‘harvest gold’ version.  I also realized that I do have quite a few bits of yellow in my life, and each one makes me quite happy.  Here are a few of my favourite snapshots.
