My blogger buddy, La La in the Library, did a post this week called Book Blogger Hop which is put on by Billy at Ramblings From A Coffee Addicted Writer. There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question and this week’s question looked like a fun topic to do a blog post on. This was last week’s question. The question was submitted by Silver’s Reviews. The question was…
Do you have only books on your bookshelves, or do you have other bookish items, too?
I do NOT have only books on my bookshelves. I have both bookish items and non bookish items on my shelves.
I have five black shelves total. My hubby bought three for me, put them together and said,”There! Those should hold all of your books!” HA HA HA! That didn’t last long. There was room for two more shelves so I of course ordered two more.
One shelf is of course all of my Harry Potter books and other books related to Harry Potter. I also have a couple Funko Pops. One of Newt Scamander and his Niffler and one of Harry in his Quidditch robes. There are also some treasures I bought at the HP theme parks. There are chocolate frog boxes, a Bertie’s Every Flavor bean box, a pumpkin juice bottle, a Butterbeer mug, a ticket and photo from Platform 9 3/4 in London, and four wands (those are bit hard to see).
I am also a huge Disney fan and my family and I have gone to both Disney World and Disneyland several times. I found this old plate at a garage sale and this very old Golden book at a thrift shop. I love it because it talks about all the rides at Disneyland. Some of them are still there and some are not. The Belle and Beast salt and pepper shakers were given to me by my friend, Holly. We are huge Beauty and the Beast fans.
I have a couple different sets of tea pots on my shelves. These two are my husband’s great-great grandmothers’.
This child’s tea set was my grandmother’s. I put it next to my Judy Blume books because I loved those as a child.
I just love this old wiener dog ceramic dish and Golden book I got at a thrift shop.
I meant for this owl print to go on my Harry Potter shelf but I just don’t have room so he sits on a shelf nearby. Isn’t he adorable? I bought him at a vintage shop.
I have lots of stuff on top of my shelves too. I love globes and maps. The little jar of sand by the globe is sand I got from Omaha Beach in Normandy, France. The old camera was my father-in-law’s.
The sailboat was made by my husband as a kid. It is hard to see but there is a jar of shells by the sailboat. These are shell the kids have collected on various trips to the ocean. There is also a map of Thailand. I have been there three times. The mini tea set, wicker ball, and elephant are from Thailand as well.
What about you? Do you have other things on your bookshelves? Please comment and let me know!
