Christmas books. Livres de Noel.

Here's another idea that I "borrowed" from my friend Suzanne. She has a basket with Christmas books. I thought that would be a great thing for us to have also. My kids loves books and we read them in bed but maybe they would love a good read during the day too.

Now I was in search for the right size basket. I found this one from Micheal's (50% off) but the color was gold. Not for me. What's a girl to do?? Well spray paint it of course! After 2 coast of black satin pain and one coat of clear acrylic, it's ready!

I bought these 3 new books and my son quickly got one to read. Yes, seeing him enjoying a Christmas book made me feel happy. What do you guys think? Do you also have this going in your home?

We're all about books here and I've collected many in the past 5 years. (Prob. have about 20 now.)I keep them on a shelf in Dahlia's room but I love the basket idea. Front and center.

Nicely done!

We love Christmas books, too! I just went through all their books and got out the Christmas ones and put them on the Family Room Bookshelf, but the basket is a great idea! Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful day!

I love to see kids reading books! Brings back so many memories of my own childhood. And love your Christmas decorations - will you please come over to my house and give it a Christmas makeover?? ;-)

Happy Holidays!
