This corner of my living room houses a few of my favorite things. I have long had a love for vintage metal: flower frogs, bookends, miniature buildings, embossers and most importantly gyroscopes in their original boxes. And what else would go with vintage bookends? Vintage books of all kinds. The birthday books are always such fun to read as each day has a special saying or poem for the birthday girl. The Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium were fun finds. Still on the lookout for the Field Museum!
