I have some what of an obsession with antique books. Where my parents live are two goodwill bookstores, which is an excellent place to pick up some lovely books. I usually stack them or lay them on their side and place odds and ends on top....they are a good way to add characterer to a room. I have also made frames out of books as well. A while ago I found a book with the word "SISTERS" on it which I transformed into a frame and gifted it to my sister.
