Good point about the dust DesigningMom, you'd probably have to shake them out every now and then.....

Allot of cute ideas here Faith. I really like the flower chandelier and wall flower. I'm afraid both would get too dusty in a home in the country and with four long haired cats. I bet my daughter would love them though. I'll have to remember and ask her. Either would look adorable in her baby daughter's room.

I would love to cover all the books in our home library with paper, but I think my hubby would think I was crazy. Though it houses both our books he's very priatory about that room as his desk is in there. I had dreams of a partners desk, but not that he has a TV in there, well lets just say I'm glad I have my own home office.
