Happy Wednesday flowers!! I seriously think I'd volunteer to be locked in here and not come out for a very long time!! I adore libraries like this, I can just imagine what great reads I would find in here. Not to mention the architecture would keep me hooked too! You could even play hide & seek in here since it's so big! My dream house would have one of these in it for me to go to whenever I needed to escape and read :) Ahh..heaven! It's mid-week, I hope everything is going dandy with everyone! My older daughter is off on a Pirate's adventure today with her class, so she went to school dressed as Jack Sparrow's right hand lil' woman :) We sang pirate songs all the way to school too, fun! Have a fantabulous day!!

  4. I ABSOLUTELY love libraries of this magnitude and design! Yes, I would be busy discovering for hours and days! I have my own collection of books, and have passed on that desire to my boys! (And, thank you for the link to "Why not...wear a Dress?" I loved it, and am certain that we share a definite love for dresses! Also, I subscribed to 'the Simply Luxurious Life". Thank you!)xo

  5. To escape into a Paradise of a library - oh that would be sweet. The smell of the books - old and new, the quiet, the time to get lost in your own thoughts or those of a talented author.

    Lovely post. :)
