Book lovers décor suggestions

Well it’s that time of year to start the spring cleaning. I hope you haven’t already as I have some organizer and decor ideas for you.

Though I hope if you have a love of books would not destroy them in such a way, especially those that are not old looking books they could be worth money! I can understand old school books for the hideaways or purse or maybe someone gave you a copy of a book you already have. I can understand if you want to do it with the extra but I would rather donate mine to a school, or someone that cannot afford books and has a hard time getting around (to a library)

 

I Iike the  color grouping and giant wall clock! I would use all the janet Evanovich books! That Scrabble letter holder idea, you could also do that with scraps of a type of moulding as that’s what those are. The storage bins ad omg the lamp of large thread bobbins but how the heck did they get them in the wall? and ceiling that I really like!  My favorite though has to be the stairs. I wish ours were like that or even ones that opened for storage.

The Oxford Comma Controversey

Of all the stupid arguments I have heard on the news coming up, or glanced over a headline of online.. I came across The Oxford comma controversey.

I thought it was at least worth looking into considering the way people write these days. I’ve seen commas used way too many times in a sentence when they should have used a semicolon and a comma etc.

I wasn’t aware there were different ‘types’ of commas. In school I was just told where to put one and then you put one space after it (and 2 after a period) and then go on with your writing. The sample the site gives about I’d like to thank my parents, the president, ad the vice president they do not note that even with the comma, can still be mistaken as the parents ( especially if someone does not see well). This can be fixed by adding:

I’d like to thank my parents, as well as the President and Vice President, and I don’t know about you but to me  it’s makes you sound like you are well spoken, as well as much clearer on what you mean.
