Reorganize - Redisplay

Do you remember this window seat and interior facing bookshelves? I built this piece and it is one of my favorites...and also the largest! Well - after the Christmas decorations came down, it was time to put up a new display.

I always decorate these shelves around books because it is my favorite place to read. The wedding photo is of my parents.

All of the books are beautiful coffee table hardcover books and are on one of 3 subjects, gardening, collecting or home interior.

This adorable photo is of my Father's parents.

My Grandmother loved and collected many figurines....

...but my favorite ones are by Royal Copenhagen. They combined my Grandmother's love of art and my Mother's Norwegian heritage.

The attention to detail is amazing.

I especially enjoy this one since we raise sheep.

Hi Julie,
I love the figurines, they are so beautiful and all the more meaningful since they belonged to your grandmother! I have some ceramic horses that my grandmother collected and I really treasure them!

This would be a favorite of mine too.

I also love figurines, I just hate dusting them!

Glad to hear your foot is feeling better.
