 This Etsy shop is closed at the moment but I’m DYING to get this plate and teacup!! So cute!!










These socks from Modcloth are a must have, yeah? Bookish from head to toe!



We don’t currently have any room for traditional bookcases so I have to get a little creative!


THIS IS SO COOL. Decorative and I can store some books that I want to also show off!



Love this spacesaver bookshelf!

bookish bookends

I have this awesome shelf that Will set up that spans the whole length of our couch and is directly behind it and I have books on there along with other things but I need some bookends SO BAD and I am obsessed with these. This shop had some real cute ones…hard to choose!





Perks of Being A Wallflower is one of my favorite books ever (and movies honestly!) and I love these notecards and would love to send them to all my bookish friends!



These are the cutest notecards! You can have them personalized with your name or have them plain with no name!



I love washi tape and this bookish washi tape is very high on my NEEDS list!





If you’ve ever read Looking For Alaska by John Green you know all about the final words obsession and this one is Francis Rabelais last words. From the book: “Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”catalog    I already have a cute wall hook thing but one could always use another wall hook…especially if it looks like old catalog card drawers right??


So tell me…which ones would YOU want in your home?? What sorts of things are on your bookish wishlist??

  26. It really does not surprise me that you’ve picked some of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. You have THE BEST taste. I love the idea of bookish dinnerware! I prefer plates, bowls, etc that are more on the fun side just because they add a little something to an activity that’s as common/potentially boring as eating. I LOVE those notecards. And that print.

  32. We picked out the same library girl stationary, HA! Also I think those are the socks I gave Anna. This week’s topic was a lot of fun.

  1. […] Hi there! Will and I have been getting down to business with doing some Spring cleaning — which basically means I pretend to clean things while singing into my hairbrush and dancing all about while Will does a lot of the cleaning. BUT I must do the Spring cleaning of the books piling up because if it were up to Will…I have a feeling any book that didn’t have a home on a proper shelf would be MYSTERIOUSLY GONE. (This is why I need to buy these to have more shelves). […]
