I think I will be starting a new series around here - Favorites Friday. Fridays are always hard days to blog for me. So hopefully this will help.
For the first installment, I wanted to show off my magazine rack. It is solid wood and weighs a ton, which is good because my kid likes to crawl up the shelves. It came from a library in Minneapolis. I purchased this second hand at least 6 years ago for $20. For the first 3 years I owned it I had it in storage, but I knew it was something special. And now, it has found a perfect home in our family room, right between 2 windows. Last Fall I decided to "feature" some season or holiday themed books here for Sydney. Here is the rack with all of our favorite Christmas/Winter books. A lot of these were gifts, some thrifted. Our two favorite additions this year were The Big Snow and White Snow, Bright Snow. Both oldies but goodies!!
I recently switched over to Spring books. We don't have many of those, so these are mostly library books.
Here are a few we are really looking forward to reading!
(I barely got this shot in before it got snatched away!! Look close though, the illustrations are all cut paper!)
I got a lot of grief when I bought this piece, and even more grief while it hogged all the storage space in our basement, but now I am so happy that we have it and I think my husband finally realizes the vision I had for it all along. (It takes him a while to come around, but he usually does!!) So there it is - Favorites Friday! I would love for you to join in, show us your favorite book, recipe, thrifted find, fabric, etc.! Be sure to leave a link in the comments if you decide to play along!
