Love Your Space Challenge: Jan 3rd

How is 2015 starting for you?  I hope you are still enjoying a few more days of holiday before hitting the daily grind in the new year.

Today’s challenge is for our bookcases again! I just love decorating with books and I think bookshelves are easily overlooked when it comes to styling and displaying books, art, and other decorating accessories.
