Petit french library

It dawned on me this morning, 
sometime after dawn but before
that if I cleared off a certain
sewing machine table
(among my favorite things to collect
and oddly they find me rather than vice
versa, which is awesome)
that I'd have a spot to put 
my laptop and sit rather than
let the petit table
hold the collection
of equally awesome things 
it was currently holding. 

Mind you...this space I call
the library (in jest!!) 
is no more than a cubicle.

My hips DO fit even in clothes.

And there are books and magazines
between the collected items. 
All of it brings me smiles and keeps
me busy dusting. 

You have now viewed both sides of 
my library which has many books by Peter Mayle 
as well as antique french textbooks and
french/english dictionaries. 
I'm currently searching for a certain USB
cable that will hook my brain to those
books and transfer the information
within them to me. 

*switching now to my US Capital Rotunda tour voice*
If you'll look over your head you will 
see the light fixture that was chosen 
to illuminate the space. 

Not only does it keep the library in virtual
it looks incredibly cute while doing it. 
Water fountains and public restrooms are down the
hall to your RIGHT ;) 
(a little politicking right on campus)
if you are still with me I'll show you the art.

Old photos, one boy, one girl. 
Both parties represented. 
Both hoping not to have a bearish market 
in the near future. 

Hard to photograph in such a dark space...
this tapestry shows a mother and her little child,
representing the sanctity of
human life. 

I discovered yesterday a girl from Nashville
doing something to preserve human life
in Uganda. 
To say I'm inspired is the understatement 
of the century! 
Katie is 21 and is mothering 14 girls alone! 
How rare to find such a giver anywhere. 
You'll see her book on her sidebar. 
I understand it is at Wal-Mart...
I will have to add it to my petit library, 
once I have read it!
I will! 
Thanks for coming by today :)
