The library, re-opened

And, at long last, this blog returns! I had a very busy last few months and found very little time for anything recreational. Hopefully I'll be able to build some momentum and return to posting with some regularity. The winter season has also very much affected the lighting for any pictures I've tried to take...

We're currently in the process of doing major bookshelf changes in our apartment. Two of our older pieces are currently up on craigslist--we've replaced one with this beauty from Ikea:

I'm normally not so keen on what Ikea has but I'm very happy with the "Granemo". It's always such fun to arrange a new shelf--this features a number of my large art books and collects about ten of my current favorite contemporary authors, their works bundled into sections across the shelves.

In about a month, we'll get a custom-built shelf/media cabinet that my girlfriend and I designed and commissioned with a local woodworker. I'm very much looking forward to that piece and will certainly post when it finally gets here!

Until next time--
