Books in my mother's house

My mother loves books in the kitchen...

...on a cake stand... the couch...

...near the back door...

...and  under a lamp....


  1. I love your mother's house! She does a great job of decorating with books!

    And that little note found inside the book is just adorable!

  2. I love how quirkily she accommodated all those books, especially on the cake stand.

  3. Gorgeous!! I want to dive into all those beautiful cookbooks. So if I ignore you the next time I'm there...


  4. I love it! It looks like my Mom's house and my house! I think we inherit the love of books from our parents, don't you?

  5. Yes, Kathy, we do get our love of books from our parents. It's one of the greatest gifts she's given me.

  6. That's my kind of place! I have books stacked precariously all over the place, too. It just makes me feel good to know they're there.

  7. Looks like your mom is getting more out of those books than just reading! I love it! So creative and very pretty. Thanks for linking up at "Life as this Mommy knows It"!

    Wow! How does she make her home look both lived in and artistic?

  9. Thanks, ladies! She's a wonderful woman with indomitable taste, En. I don't know how she does it, either...

  10. So like my hubby! Books everywhere! LOL!

  11. Looks like my kind of house!! I especially like the ones under the lamp--that's a great idea and one I think I will steal!

    Thanks for sharing this with us at Rub Some Dirt On It!

  12. Wow! These photos are so nice! Love the atmosphere your mom's house has :) Love the little teacup too
