Everyday life is the special occasion!

Tearing Apart



 My unconditional love for books has always made ​​me fear the shelves full of photographs, artifacts, trinkets that covered them, as if it were  a sacrilege to hide a book, almost a desecration to the object of worship that I most revere. However, over the years, I realized that actually the shelves and at the same time, the  books seem to have a life of its own when framed by one or other meaningful photograp, or by one or other original object, but especially when flanked, not covered, by stunning bookends!



O meu amor incondicional pelos livros fez-me sempre temer as estantes repletas de fotografias, artefatos,  bugigangas que os tapassem, como se fosse um sacrilégio ocultar um livro, quase uma profanação ao objeto de culto que eu mais venero. Contudo, com o passar dos anos, dei-me conta de que realmente as estantes e, cocomitantemente, os livros até ganham mais vida emoldurados por uma ou outra fotografia ocasional e com significado, um ou outro objeto original mas, sobretudo, quando ladeados, e não tapados, por cerra-livros espantosos!

  17. THESE ARE AMAZING - I really mean that. I have seen the odd (& I mean veryyy occasional) book end but none as gorgeous and as many as this before. We sound alike with our passionate love for books, and I often feel they're not loved as much thrown in to a bookshelf - I would love any one of these book ends.

    Tb adoro livro , compro uns sempre que posso ! Costumo a aconselhar a td a gente que gosta de livros , nao sei se ja leste um livro que se chama Plano Perfeito Autor é o sidney sheldon . Eu leio pelo menos uma vez de dois anos em dois anos é o tempo que demoro a esquecer a historia , LOL . È absolutamente delicioso! Pelo menos para quem gosta de estilo de vingaça e romance com um toque brutal de inteligencia. :)
