Bibliostyle: Book Report



Give me an A! Or a D...or an R...

If you're like me and you've got kind of a thing for letters, words and books you're going to love my latest find at Anthropologie.

Old, upcycled books hand carved into alphabetical ingeniousness. Priced right at $20, the bookish initials would look smart in a home library or on a desk or bookshelf. Gift idea!

Yes, this is one of those novel ideas a crafty person might make for themselves, and if you've got the gear -I say go for it! And send me a picture when you're done!

For the rest of us, Anthropologie shoppers report these darlings are best purchased in-store rather than online due to the vintage nature of the materials. It's a personal choice as to how much shabby is actually chic -something best viewed in person. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.

...and they all shopped happily ever after.

The end.
