Book Odds and Ends

Some Book Love on the web this week~~

Amazing book cupcakes by Victoria’s Kitchen!  Too bad they are located in the UK. By the number of hits and comments on their Facebook page, I’m not the only one that’s disappointed!

Bookshelf Porn is a photoblog loaded with amazing images of books. Books in libraries, books in bookstores and books on bookshelves. Check them out if you want to ooh, aah and drool over some pulp!

Book Dishes…they speak for themselves!

Book Fetish on Pinterest

English: Red Pinterest logo

My latest obsession is Pinterest. Another great internet time waster and a whole lot of fun! Another subject for another post!  Book Fetish is a board loaded with unusual book stuff from jewelry to clothing and everything in between.

So even though I’m going through a bit of a reading dry spell I still haven’t lost my love of books!

Bookends by Artori Design

I’m going to deviate from the norm a little bit this morning and talk about a design studio I located through the web. Believe you me when I say that I am not very well known for my design skills, my sense of fashion or my ability to pick a simple paint color for my living room wall….but when I see something I like I know it!

I guess this is a tad book related because the items that first drew me to Artori Design were their very quirky bookends.

 

I just love them!

 

 

 

If you go on the link (Artori Design) you will see that the designer and artist,  Ori Niv, has put his unique spin on other, usually mundane, household items.  These include holders for paper towels, wine, and tissues as well coat racks, clocks and sculptures.  Mr. Niv has truly turned the ordinary into extraordinary!

I think these bookends would be a terrific gift idea for the book lover in your life!  Doing a little research I found that Amazon.com carries them for a very reasonable price! (hint hint family)
