Hooked on decorating books...

A couple of years ago, I joined Homestyle Books. I'm so glad I did because I'm crazy about most of the books I've purchased from them. They have a great selection and the prices are really affordable. Although it's no longer available at Homestyle, here's one of my most favorites...

There are so many (750 to be exact, duh) brilliant decorating ideas in this beautiful book, that I can't share all the ones I love. So, I thought I'd share three things that I definitely want to do in the Old House.

I just adore the idea of using a dollhouse for a shelf. I already have an antique dollhouse that was my dad's in the 1940s. It's packed away in a box because the mice were gnawing on it so, unfortunately, I can't post a photo.

There is a doorway just like this in the Old House and I think these doors would be fabulous there.

I think high-gloss white paint would look really good on the floor of Old House porch.

  1. I joined that 2 about 6 years ago and i loved getting new books. But it got to be to expensive cause i kept forgetting to send the books back i did not want. lol. I still have all my books and still go thru them...

  2. I think I joined that book club once, too! I have a couple of painting/gardening books from them, but ended up cancelling because I never had the time to use any of the ideas. :) They're on my bookshelf, though... BTW, LOVE, love, LOVE the dollhouse idea! I wish I had one that was an heirloom to use... but I may just go looking for one to make into an heirloom. :)

  3. I have that book, that dollhouse photo is one of my favorite photos of all times! I've been looking high and low for a dollhouse for years to do that!

    loving your blog!
