You can learn a lot about someone by looking at their bookshelf. Is it overflowing with books, knickknacks, or movies? What about the organization, or lack thereof… in our case.
My bookshelf, or loft nook as I like to refer to it (makes it so much fancier don’tcha think?) is a hodgepodge of everything, a lot like our lives… the best groupings I can find are that hardback books should be together, paperbacks together and if possible any series should be in order. Other than that it is free reign. I also love trinkets on my shelves. These are mostly personal mementos that don’t really have a home anywhere else. So although the holidays are over and there isn’t any elves on the shelf…there are tons of other fun goodies!

The nook in all its glory. Big thanks for the invention of the ipad. Now I don’t have to be one of those overflowing shelf people. Hello digital library.
