By now it should be no surprise that I kinda like Christmas.
in fact, just the other day, I showed you my room/house decorated for the season.
However, in that post, I kinda skipped out on you.
I didn't show you probably the coolest aspect of my decor.
My book tree:
So, I am a bookaholic.
I even have a whole board on pinterest dedicated to books.
Knowing this, you can probably understand that when I saw this pin:
I knew I had to make my own.
It worked out perfectly.
I used books that I use for "decor"
(old reader's digest and double copies)
that way, if they became to bent, I wouldn't ruin one of my favorites.
It was so simple. I just stacked them up according to size.
Then, I purchased this tiny star at target for $1.
I had a hard time getting it to balance on top,
so I just tacked it in to a cork lid I had lying around.
Oh, by the way...
see the book on top
"shakespeare on love"
I bought it at Shakespeare's house in Stratford-Upon-Avon two summers ago.
It is one of my favorites,
and I had to use it for the top because it is the smallest one I have.
(hopefully it doesn't bend to badly)
Oh, on a totally different note:
go read shakespeare's 116 sonnet.
it's my favorite
anyway, back to the tree
It's tiny, but I love it.
It is totally, 100% me.
and the best part?
the total project took me 20 minutes max
and only cost $1.
