New Reading Nook.


If you've been following me on Snapchat lately, you'll have already seen our latest project--moving the bedroom around, and creating a reading nook. We had soooo many books just sitting on the floor, waiting to be shelved. Last Saturday we took the plunge, and Adam went to the store and bought four new book shelves. He (and Chad, who was visiting) got two of them built, and then things kinda halted. Yesterday, while the two youngest were over, visiting me, Aimaija and I finished building the last two, and then organized it all. the. books. For a while it was a pretty big disaster, but in the end it turned out just right. Now we have a cozy book corner, and, best of all, we can finally SEE all our book titles!


  1. So, yes, it's Friday. Yay! Both Adam and I have work tomorrow, so our plans for the weekend are pretty low-key. Maybe some swimming, and a picnic? 
  2. Today there is storytime at the library, and I'm going to try and make it with Adri. However, first we are taking our walk, before it heats up too much. 
  3. I have a big pile of dishes waiting to be washed in the sink, and plants to water, but I'm totally stalling and just sitting here on the computer...dishes can wait...
  4. I saw an interesting apron on Pinterest the other day, and I think I'm going to try to sew it. Not sure if it'll work out, but I'll keep you posted ;) 

Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Amber, yes, I love the brick! It's an old chimney, and it's in the center wall between both studios, so we have it both in the bedroom, and living room!

    3. Christina, we had the same problem (too many books/not enough room for shelves) and then we finally figured out a way to re-arrange the bedroom, and have more room! I'm so happy--no more books on the floor!
