"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

Book Caddy

  Remember that gift card Tim re-gifted me with?  A trip to TJ Maxx and Marshall's happened in short order.  

I found this delightful caddy.  In the ongoing fight for control of clutter in our cottage I knew this would work well to hold bibles and books.
This keeps them from being stacked up precariously on a side table.
 It is white and has cute feet.

After a few days of teaching Kamryn to leave the books alone, it is working out very well.

Cute! At first I thought it was only as wide as the one side...but seeing it from the top I see that there is lots of room in it.

Vee said...

Is there not one in there for Kamryn? LOL It is cute!

I like your caddy. Seems it could be quite versatile in what it is used for. A place for books is a good idea.

Did my comment disappear or is it waiting for moderation? Oh, I hate it when I don't pay attention!! :)

Great idea and use for that. I love the look of those pieces no matter what the use.

What a cute caddie, Deanna, I am always looking for thing to organize books and magazines. Tj Maxx and Marshall's are two of my favorite stores to shop.
Enjoyed reading some of your previous posts, I have always loved to read, but have found that in recent years I do't read as many books just blogs, ~smile~ and have plans to do something about that. I am a firm believer in encouraging children to develop a love of reading at an early age, it truly pays off. I too, had a child who didn't have a love of books at first, but I found a way to help him and that was finding books about things he was interested in. It just so happened he loved the Peanuts, and Family Circus comic strips, so I found these books.
Thanks for sharing.
Enjoy your weekend.
