    Hmm … maybe I could keep a succulent alive. I seem to kill all my other house plants. I even killed a cactus in college, which I hear is pretty hard to do! Love how you mixed the new and fresh plant with the old and aged books. I featured you in my “Get Me Motivated Monday” post this week.

      Thanks for featuring me. I’m sure you’ll do great with a succulent, they require very little maintenance.

    I am one who believes books are already art – I just love this idea! I would love to see you link this post up at Freestyle Friday, going on now through Sunday night.

    Hope to see you there ~ http://www.happyhourprojects.com

    Looks great.. love the ceramic birds…
    I kinda feel bad for the books… especially since I adore Amy Tan. I just couldn’t do this to my books. I love and cherish them all.

      I know I felt bad too, that’s why I got the books at a thrift store. And chose a book (the nixon one)n that no one was probably going to read. The Amy Tan book is just there for effect, it was not harmed.

    Absolutely adorable! I love birdies and little plants I already have some old books and am making this ASAP! And I know just where I will put it so I can enjoy it! I have several succulent plants that I love and will probably use them so I don’t have to worry about watering often. :)
    Thank you so much for sharing this.

    At first I was thinking, “What is that little piece of earth/plant doing sitting on top of those books?” Oooooooh! Now I get it! Sorry, but it takes some of us longer than others to grasp this kind of creativity :0)

    Awesome project!!!

    Here from LBS. That is extremely cute. I do hope that it holds up long-term. I haven’t ever seen anything like that. What a unique conversation piece.

    The best thing about books is that you use your imaginations and not someone else’s.
    50 people can read the same book and come up with 50 different scenarios.
    You just have to love books and the amazingly talented writers.
