I have just spotted a blog post over on the fabulous Bibliophile Gathering blog which I liked so much that I’ve decided to take part in – even if I am a day late! I hope I haven’t broken any blog etiquette rules or anything but here goes…
Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube and yesterday’s topic was “things on my bookshelf that aren’t books”. So here are my five pics – a day late…
1. Old teddies
These all belonged to my husband when he was a little boy. I definitely never saw myself as the sort of person who would have teddies on their bookshelves, but I like these funny old ones. Also the classics next to Yogi look impressive, even though I don’t think I’ve read any of them!
2. A cat figurine painted by my daughter
I don’t like cats, and this one doesn’t seem to have any eyes. But, hey, my little girl painted it so it remains on the bookshelf.
3. Jars that I have painted and decorated with washi tape
These are empty and serve no real purpose. Not entirely sure why they are still sitting here….
4. A wooden London bus and an old car
A few toys have found their way onto the bookshelf too but I don’t mind these ones as, as toys go, I think they are pretty cool.
5. Russian dolls
These are mine – I love Russian dolls so take full responsibility for them being on the bookshelves.
