My Dream House...

Monday, February 25, 2008
...always had one of those round libraries with the sliding ladders in it. But, recognizing that I will never be able to afford a house like that, I'll settle for this. Yes, It looks like I might kill myself finding my books, but it's so cool. Plus, I truly believe that raising kids in a house full of books, however dangerous, is really important. There are books in every stair. Tell me that's not amazing.
Hint, the photo is from above looking down at the steps. It took me a while to figure that out.

Though I hate to say it because I no longer like the blog, hat tip to the friend who pointed me to Gawker, which in turn pointed me to Apartment Therapy.

    No fair! It was my dream house first.

    Though, I am reminded of the Anna Quindlen quote: "I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves."
