Bookends, Book Nooks & Other Bookish Images

Just can’t resist sharing a few more things with you today. Hope you enjoy them!

Sign outside of bookstore. Don’t know about you, but I’d buy books here! Lots of them!


When my red-haired (bee-YOO-tiful) daughter was in high school, everyone called her The Little Mermaid. I’ve been fond of mermaids ever since. These are gorgeous!


In keeping with the oceanic theme…RELEASE THE KRAKEN!


Who wouldn’t enjoy curling up with a good book in this little reading nook?


Unless you’d rather stretch out on this, instead?


And last (for now) how about some handpainted bricks as bookends, for you crafty folks? How cleverย are they?

    • Absolutely. That’s why one of my boards on Pinterest is filled with things like this. Bookends, Book Nooks, Book furniture. There are about 170 pictures there now, which isn’t huge as Pinterest standards go, but I’m selective. ๐Ÿ˜€ If you check it out, you can find info on buying some of the newer bookends, like the black, die-cut ones, and others. Check it out:

      • You do have quite a selection. I love the different shelves and I hadn’t seen the shelves along the stairway. Love it.
        I don’t have room for bookends; my bookcases are jam packed with books. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for inviting me to check out your Pinterest. โค

        • Mine mostly are, too. I use BOOKS as bookends, laying a stack of them on their sides to hold up the others. But I do have a couple of nice bookends, scattered here and there. I have several rooms with ceiling high shelves, and my library/office has floor to ceiling shelves on every wall, so I do have more shelf space than many. Plus, now that I discovered how much more fun reading on Kindle is, I only buy print versions of books where I’m collecting an entire set, or the ones where the cover art is irresistible. I still BUY them, mind you. Just not in the same number as I used to.

          I don’t have a single room (except bathrooms) that doesn’t have a bookshelf, and as I say, ceiling high ones are the norm. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Glad you enjoyed looking at that board. There are some wonderfully inventive bookshelves there, which I plan to share in my next Bookish post. ๐Ÿ˜€

            • I probably wouldn’t even bother to TRY to come home without books! Or I’d set up sleeping quarters in a back room, and just live there amid them! ๐Ÿ˜€ I applaud your volunteer work, too. I used to do volunteer work long ago, at the Central Florida Zoo, where I was a docent who worked with snakes, and as a full-time volunteer for Florida Audubon. But then I had to trade for a paying job for a while. Now, I write all day, every day, and have no other life, volunteer or otherwise. ๐Ÿ˜€ And I love it most of all!


                • I’m very fond of reptiles, especially albino and leucistic ones. But never fear. I also love pretty much all wildlife, except for sharks and hairy-legged spiders. (I was obviously either a sea lion or a fly in a past life.) ๐Ÿ™‚ Snakes are very, very interesting, once you learn a bit about them. I don’t keep any as pets, though. My first husband was terrified of them. ๐Ÿ˜€ And we have too many cats for any snake to be safe in our house now.

    • No, it doesn’t really, but it’s fun. LOVE that sign, but I confess my favorite would be the octopus. I just love the curving shapes. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have hundreds of these, which may be making appearance over the next few days. Be forewarned. ๐Ÿ˜€


  1. CTC: We have four cats (currently, though that number has been larger in the past) and two dachshunds. WAY too many animals at this stage of our lives. I love them dearly, but as they shuffle off this mortal coil to that great lizard hunting ground in the sky, some of them won’t be replaced. I’m thinking we need to be a two-cat, zero-dog family now. To lessen work and expenses, and to make it easier to travel. But for now, they are well-loved and cared for.
