Book Nook

The winner of last week's giveaway is Katie who wants to see more easy crafts (that even she can do), and more pics of Charley in year two of My Life in Projects.  Thanks, Katie, for reading along in year one!

Charley adores books and her latest thing is to grab a book, haul it over to one of us, and climb up into our laps to read.  I love every second of this.  Snuggle time with my baby who loves books?  Yes, please.  The other day we sat on the little step into the family room and read book after book after book.  We probably sat their for 20 minutes at least.  That's a long time for a 13 month old to stay in one place.  So that brings me to the book nook I created in that very spot.

I figured a rug and a couple pillows would add the perfect amount of coziness to her daily read-a-thons.  Yesterday she crawled over to her new area and slowly leaned back onto the pillow, and then foldeed her hands together.  I can't even begin to explain the cuteness that was going on.  It was seriously precious.

Needless to say, Charley has enjoyed her little space and I definitely have, as well.  So, if you need me, I'll be with Charley in her book nook reading Llama Llama, Zippity Zoom on repeat.  Have a great weekend! Pin It


  1. How about rugs with brighter colors and pastels? Have you ever tried doing any rug with the rugs?

    1. I love bright colored rugs but this little book nook was I our main living space and the neutral seemed to mesh well. Plus I already had it on hand so I just used what I had instead of buying new. :)
