The top image is a corner of my favourite library, the Wren library at Trinity College, Cambridge (image from idlethink ) - wouldn't you want to waste some time there? I am enamoured with books and if I had the space for a library room, it would be stacked floor to ceiling with the written word like that.
All the library finds are from lovely Etsy sellers - check them out - I am especially hankering after a vintage library catalog drawer, it would be great for keeping all my vintage cotton bobbins, trimmings, zips and samples, neat and organised.
And some day, I would like to put some written word of my own into a beautiful artisan handbound book : )
