My new bookcases!

So for my birthday, Lucas bought me the bookcases I've had my eye on for a while now. We got them from his company ( and I'm in love! If you're at all interested in bookcases, SmartFurniture has awesome ones - and also a ton of fun bookends, picture frames, and of course awesome furniture. I will pimp the links at the end of this post. TJ, if you are reading this, please feel free to give me free stuff in the future in return for the promotion of your products.

Now on to the good stuff:

Here is a close-up of the sword (yes the infamous Christmas sword) on top of my pretty new bookcases. Please note that it is propped up with styrofoam. I'm sure you'll all agree, though, that you must choose your battles.

We've got the bookcases split for now, but when we move we will try to put them together on one wall. I love the smart cases because we can take them apart and do any size/combination we want. If you check out the website, make sure you note that Luke is the web developer so he made all of their virtual room set ups and everything. I'll end with a few links. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of all my other book related birthday gifts!

  1. Oo, organized by color, too! Fancy! I love them!

  2. I swore I responded to since it didn't work out the first time I'll do it again.

    I love the bookshelves! I only have one and am in desperate need of another. I told my husband about the sword on top and he got a good chuckle out of it. And yes, I've been sharing the sword stories with

  3. I am chartreuse with envy! I love them and especially love how your books are organized by color! Fab!
