How fun is this? Oh we had some good laughs making this. What on earth would YOU do with this many books. Oh, this is just 1/3 of them. But hey! It works! The store is looking pretty junkalicious for Christmas now!

We were thinking of randomly putting trees outside of the library and book stores, but then thought - hmmmm, what would they do with them after and what if it rains? So that idea went kaput quickly. However, our store needed something unique and fun! So this idea popped up one night as we were closing up. High fives to my gal pal Laura for the laughs and help lugging these out from all the nooks and crannies we stuffed them into. TOTALLY open to suggestions on ideas for them after the holidays!

StrangeCargo writes: Jasmin, what a classic display. This scene evokes warmth, whimsy, and invites one to stay awhile. Just beautiful, and yes, novel.

Thanks,
