As for my children’s books that’s a whole other story, which starts right here...
I have had this bookshelf in my life for as long as I can remember, it has homed many of my endless collections from my childhood to my teenage years.
Here it is seen with a cringe worthy me (and Barbie) at six-years old.
So realising I now have too many children’s books to be able to stack up and look elegant, I decided to invest in a bookshelf for my craft room.
Invest obviously for me means re-use. So once again this bookshelf is back in my life. Which is kind of reminiscent, as it’s something that has always been in my family.
Despite the arctic conditions, I have given it a little make-over in my favourite duck egg blue to match my pound chair. I was in two minds about it, because of it being such a loved item, but I honestly think it’s given it a whole new life.
Here it is filled with all my delights; I've added a few of my second hand treasures, and keepsakes along with all my favourite children's books.
I now have a place to home my ever growing Beatrix Potter collection, and wonderfully old Ladybird books. I didn’t want to clutter it up with too much stuff, so I have kept it fairly simple, leaving plenty of room for new treasures.
This is a Celia Birtwell photo wallet with all my favourite childhood snaps in.
You might be able to spot some of my favourite Disney classics on here.
You might think I’m a little too old for Peter Rabbit & co, but this is me, I love illustrations and I love delving into another world. Hopefully one day I will be able to pass this collection on to someone else ♥
