We moved into our new space a little more than a month ago, and I thought maybe it was time (yes, perhaps long overdue would be more accurate) for an update. In our former home, all of the books (mostly) fit on the wall of bookshelves my husband built. In our new space, at least for now, we’ve resorted to an older shelf he re-built four dwellings ago now. In Siloam Springs, it was in my yarn room, holding patterns and stitch dictionaries and works in progress.
So, the state of my books:
I’ve got two shelves of books I’ve already read, but I only unpacked the book boxes marked TBR. As you can see, the books aren’t contained within the shelves.
And these are the boxes of books that I didn’t even open. They’ve since been moved from their place beside the bookshelf to storage.
We’re clearly still working on getting settled. Yesterday I spent more than a few hours working on the roman shades we’re attempting to make for the 7 large windows in our space. Bookshelves will come, in time. The current state of them is somewhat indicative of my current state, though, I think. We’re still in transition. It normally doesn’t take us this long to get settled in a new place, but this time, everything’s a bit more complicated, so it’s taking longer than I expected.
