Today was the day. I courageously faced down the pile of boxes marked "books" and conquered it. I am happy to report they all fit (well...I had to part with some of them in order to make that happen). I was so happy to see them all again. They are well loved friends.

A very thoughtful engineer put book shelves in the powder room.

A very thoughtful husband designed shelves in the little corner between our bedroom and the living room.

My bookshelf in the study.

Alas, these are the books who didn't make the cut. I am sure they will find good homes. They're very nice.

Good job!! They look so right at home. I'm sure the others are sad to leave you but I'm sure they'll find good homes!

I can smell the fragrance of those books. And the fresh paint. I'm so happy for you, my dear friend!

Oh wow... all those wonderful, beautiful books!! The look great stacked neatly in their new home! :)

Well done!! And now, on to the next box! Wish I could peek inside the sacks of books leaving home. lol

I always feel a little more 'at home' and settled in when my books have found a spot or spots to congregate. I have several boxes downstairs awaiting the new house which is still in the discussing stage, not even the planning stage. Patience, right, dear friend?!:>)

It feels like home now, doesn't it? With all your books out? I always start with them because it makes me believe I will be staying, if you know what I mean. You are making your house your home, Linda! Keep the photos coming - i love seeing the process!

Linda, I got my eyes off track on the captions, and had them above the pics instead of below. So when I got to the grocery sacks, I read "My bookshelf in the study" and promptly laughed out loud.

I take it back, promise. ;-) There's nothing funny about having to part with books.

Good progress being made. Happy weekend, Linda.
