Ideal Bookshelf.

There must be something in the water.  I have several friends who are expecting this summer and a couple who just announced that they were expecting.  It's a little nutty that everyone seems to be on Round #2 already!

I recently came across what I think is the most darling baby shower gift ever. 

Ideal Bookshelf.   Created by artist Jane Mount, Ideal Bookshelf is exactly what it sounds like - all of your favorite books created into an amazing ink print.  And the best part - the prints she has already created are super affordable.   About $25.  Then add a frame and you have a really unique gift.  (You can select custom books for a personalized option for about $200.)

The Bug's would definitely have to include some of the Llama Llama series.  He loves that llama that loves/misses/is mad at his mama.  

Not just books for the kiddos either.



Harry Potter Fans...

Cute, right?  I also think this could be a cute wedding gift - his and her prints - for a couple you know really well. 

Can you even think of what books you would include?  I have to say that Bridge to Terabithia is one of my faves.  And Sarah, Plain & Tall.  And She's Come Undone.  And....
