Book Display...


A few months ago, I was in Michael's (one of my favorite stores!) with Father John and the little ones picking out a few picture frames. As we walked up and down the aisles, I came across these picture frame holders which I though would be perfect for displaying books. They were only a few dollars each and are very sturdy! I really like using our books as artwork and inspiration for our little ones and these holders make it possible to display literature in various spots of the house (shelves, our feastday table, the children's table, etc.). They are also great for putting up Icons at the children's level and for art prints that we've collected through the years.

I have something similar that I use on our buffet next to the dining table. I have a picture holder (the kind that opens up like a book) that I use for holding an icon for whatever feast we're celebrating. I also have a tiny vase that I'll put flowers from the yard in. I can't burn a candle right there because of the shelves just above it, but the overall effect is nice when it's all on a doily. It's nice to have a reminder of the current feast in the middle of everything (since our life is centered around the dining table!).

That is a really great idea, Matushka! Have you seen those battery operated candles around? I like the ones that they have at Target. They are made of plastic and real wax and are actually very realistic looking!

You know, I had forgotten about those. I'll have to check at Walmart since I live in the middle of nowhere and don't have a Target. It's hard because I used to live near a TON of shopping. (Including a Michaels..boo hoo.)

What a fun idea! And, we just picked up Nuts to You at the library. Good Autumn reading!

I like the idea of displaying icons on these instead of hanging them on walls...walls tend to become so cluttered that no one sees what is there anymore.
