Toasty November: Curl up with a book

The weather outside is frightful,
And the fiiiiiire is sooo delightful,
And since there's no place to go...
Let's stay inside and cozy up with a book!

"The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it."  
~James Bryce

I heart this bookshelf idea.
Just head on over to goodwill and pick out some really pretty vintage books.'s OK to judge a book by it's cover.

I can see Mike now...
"What did they do to that book! You can even read it anymore! This is terrible!!"
He loves books and strongly believes that the pages should never be folder over or highlighter or anything.

I love books too, but I also love art and creativity. Let's just say...this was a bad book and now we've turned it into something magical.

This has got to be one of the coolest ideas anyone has ever had!
Ok, maybe not THE coolest, but it's very creative.
I tracked down this image's source hopping to find a tutorial at the other end but alas...this is all I found.

This is definitely on my "want" list.
The Little Prince, or Le Petit Prince is a classic loved by all the children in Quebec. At least the kids I grew up with.

Mayi Carles uploads an inspirational help video to her blog every Friday.
This last one was so helpful for me...I just had to share.

Have a great weekend
