  2. Thanks! Wouldn't that be great? I keep eyeing the wide hallway at the top of my stairs, but DH says we have plenty of shelves now. He's not much fun.

  8. Oh wow, Gretchen! I am in love with your library and your dining room (especially the globes!), and I think I might come steal Ari's desk if I ever make it to Atlanta. Thanks again for stopping by Maison de Pax, and please know how much I admire you for making/keeping such a beautiful home while mothering and homeschooling - you're awesome!

  10. Love, love, love the library! I wish we had the space for it, I've always wanted a wall of books. Unfortunately our home is so little. Also I love how you've created such an amazing and calm learning environment for your little ones. PS. Lovin on your sun room post, always wanted one of those as well, I will have to live vicariously through your blog =)
