Just for show

I always wanted to purchase these books so I started and the first set came yesterday. Aren't they purdy? Amazon has them for $13.40

I also picked up this tray from Homegoods for $16.99. The label read that it was made by Acme plastics. Of course I looked them up and they make some really great items. I love it, and plan on adding some type of paper pattern to the base of it.


Ohhhh and I think I am the last in blog land that has not posted my tree. Well here are my colors how about that? I just am not the Christmas decor gal. I love a pretty tree, but that is pretty much where I almost cut it, except for small things like stockings. Oh well..I can enjoy all what you ladies do.


I think the silver and turquoise is pretty though.

those books are so beautiful, but i hate to buy stuff i won't read. i feel like a phony (as sandy from "grease" would say, "you're a fake and a phony, and i wish i never laid eyes on you!" not you, of course) if i have books on the shelf that i haven't read. and i'll admit that i haven't read "great expectations". maybe i could say i have it because it's a classic?? hmm. anyway, i love the tray-your HG always has good stuff.
