The interest I hoped to generate when I dreamed up “Show Me Your Stash” at the beginning of this year, is so enthusiastic: a fresh post is in order! I have more books than I showed – that was merely the bedroom. Knowing there are people keen on commenting and sharing, who love to look as much as I do: I’ll bring you more! With my draw conducted; this is my invitation for everyone to keep on sharing.
Please leave links, unless you have nowhere to drop a picture. I’m on dial-up internet in my rural community and couldn’t open a media-heavy blog. If you aren’t sharing, consider our pictures an open house and say what you think. I can’t wait for the reactions to mine herein. One can only wonder what those shall be!
First: who is the winner, among the pleasant ladies who opened their homes to my curiosity?
It is our “Cath”, in England! Congratulations to you, my dear! Choose any book you like among my secondhand offerings. Thank you to everyone who joined in: from Bulgaria, the United States, and Australia too.
Now for an enhanced tour of my abode. Do my viewers prefer a step back to have a look at my furniture, or closer photos to read the titles of books? I took close-ups to accommodate the latter but find myself wanting to see a bit of people’s environments, so I’ll do a little of each. By the way, did I tell you that the books Ron & I keep are stored in plastic cartons? I’ll give you a moment to let it dawn on you… You have it right. This means EVERYTHING YOU’RE SEEING, is to be read!!!! How bad do your piles seem now? Hahahahaha!
“Home With The RIEDELs“
(1) In our room, two shelves are for me and two for Ron. With the top towering, I took it for a shelf and missed the second. Who wouldn’t!? Here are both. The second has specialized Canadian literature, like the 200 year-old mystery of Oak Island, Nova Scotia. It has become a television program. Phyllis A. Whitney’s youth books are a good collection, considering their rarity.
(2) The livingroom! You’ll glimpse my recent birthday cards. Here is a cart containing books I need to mend and oldies, like Mignon G. Eberhart that didn’t fit anywhere else.
(3) We miss our sweet Love, gone four months. He made the most precious portrait of all, one night when he knocked over that cart. Lovey looked artistic in the spill.
(4) Most would put fine china in this armoire. You can guess we leap at new space… for books!
Phew! These took all day to prepare and upload on a slow connection. A slew of comments will be worth it. ;) Are these all? You don’t come close to seeing them all. We’ll save something for the 2015 re-launch of my three challengest. I’ll put my pages up soon. Thank you for spending time at my little blog! I wish each and every one of you a happy, blessed Christmas! Yours Truly, Carolyn.
