Deck The Bookshelves

IMG_0122

Hello Sunshines!

So it’s Christmas!

Well, technically, it’s not really Christmas yet.  In 15 days though!  One thing that I always feel the need to decorate is my…

  • bed
  • walls
  • cat (she looks good in a Santa hat though I don’t think she enjoys it)
  • will to live
  • yes you can decorate your will to live

My bookshelf is actually my will to live so like I said, I totally decorate it!

Yeah, spending HOURS folding over books and hanging banners and command hooks is definitely not a waste of my time.  noooo possible way.

jk.  It was probabaly a waste of time, but whatever!  I did it for the aesthetic.

K so this is my entire bookshelf.

YES go ahead and Oooh and ahhh over it for a second.

I’ll wait for you to finish…

Done?  Ok good!

So this is my entire shelf.  I made little Christmas trees out of all my books!!

Which is kind of ironic because all these books CAME from the trees. So all I did was turn them back into what they once were.  That sounded like a tumblr quote.

Anyways, this is my bookshelf.  *cue angelic choirs in the background*

It is four wood planks but those wood planks hold so much magic.  How can wood planks hold so much wonder?  omg I feel so annoying I need to stop saying wood planks

I actually plan to populate my lil’ baby shelf very soon, and make it even more gorgeous and fabulous, but I have to wait 15 days until Christmas for Barne’s And Noble Gift Cards.  Woe is me.

Me being an ACTUAL disney princess

I have the red hair Ariel.  And I feel like this song is directed at my book shelf… *is suspicious*

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, she’s got everything
I’ve got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore
You want things of above?
I’ve got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more
The resemblance is uncanny!  No?
You’re probabaly right.  I do have way more than 20 books.

K, so here is the bottom shelf

And… there is no books.  I’m sorry to disappoint.

But there are knick knacks!

And tiny trees!

And even a little mini Santa figurine!

Oh.  You want to see books?

Ok then!

Here is the second shelf.  I have ribbon lining it, and I just transformed my little precious books into trees.

I know!  You’re probably screaming through your electronic device, “YOU SIR ARE MOST DEFINITELY GOING TO RUIN THOSE BOOKS!”

well guess what they were already creased anyways in their spines.  They probably have scoliosis now.  So good day to you Sir!

Ok moving on!!

And this is a side view of the third shelf!  More beautiful books.  I actually don’t know how to describe books.  Let’s make a list, shall we?

  • surprising
  • terrific
  • tremendous
  • wondrous
  • astounding
  • awe inspiring
  • divine
  • DYNAMITE
  • for some reason I just pictures books just blowing up and destroying the world
  • ok I’m done

Meet GERALD!

he is my happy snowman made out of books.  Look at his snazzy little self.  You are being blessed by his presence.  This blog is now blessed by this picture of such a snazzy bookish snowman.  Bless you Gerald.

He just sneezed by the way.

And the top shelf is full of all my neglected books!

It really is quite sad, actually.  Maybe I’ll do a book UNhaul of these books that I might give away…

I feel cruel.  XD

BUT YES!

That was my book shelf tour.  I decked the bookshelf.  I decked it out all the way.  READING ALL THEY WAYYY!

I’m at the point in December where I just want to overdose on Candy Canes, get driven insane by the sound of jingle bells, and bathe in hot chocolate.

Oh.  That’s just me?

do you deck out your bookshelf?  is gerald snazzy?  of course he is, why did I even ask that?  what was your favorite shelf of mine?  what is the most creative word you can think of to describe books?

    jkjkjk bent spines make books so much more comforting and cozy and generally more ~nice~ and your shelf looks wonderfully aesthetic and pretty and generally like the feeling of hot cocoa in winter!!
