My Glorious Bookshelf.

So - the post you've no doubt been waiting with baited breath to see, it's arrived! And this time I'm not only going to talk about the bookshelf, I'm going to show you pictures of it as well. Amazing! And since Oscar has refused to get off the thing since then, he features in quite a few himself.

Meet the bookshelf, freshly brought from the garbage room to the flat. Oscar is counting the shelves for me. Clever boy. He was very puzzled with this new intrusion.



We have one chest of drawers for folded clothes between us, and well, despite coming over to two drawers, I've now apparently taken over the rest of them - so Jason's clothes have now been allocated these two new drawers, and the shelf as well. Kitters has found his favourite shelf, too. Oh wow. Crooked photography.



Jason thought it would be cute to tuck Oscar in for bedtime. Har Har Har!



The finished product - well, almost. The 'paperwork' shelf will have more on it, once we sort out our bits and pieces. Sadly, that's also Oscar's shelf. He won't be pleased.



And a close up, because to be fair, a lot of the stuff crammed into the first three shelves are all mine. Highlights are my board games, my NYC Liberty Bear from the Hershey's Store in Times Square, perfumes and books. (Squee, HP boxset!)



It's not a bad little collection of books, considering I came into the UK with three all-time favourites. But alas, I've gotten through most of these now - so anyone wanting to get rid of some second hand books (& can brave UK postage!) send 'em my way!

Ah, cupboard. I love you.

That might be the best free bookshelf I've ever seen. I can't imagine why anyone would want to get rid of it.

love how oscar made it his home straight away

Aw bless Oscar! That's brilliant though, I can't believe someone would just throw that out! At least put an ad in the local paper! Also, for cheap books, try your local charity shop. My town's Salvation Army has a very good book selection. And I always buy books from jumble sales too, usually around 20p each!

I wish people in my apartment complex would throw nice stuff like that away! Then maybe I could finally have a bookshelf!

Nice find!

That is super nice, and I love Oscar's little blanket.

You did well with the bookcase - let's hope nobody comes knocking looking for it :P And I love how cats fall in love with new things the instant they arrive. :)

snazzy! I spy with my little eye SEVERAL things I saw packed and unpacked and whatnot in Americaland.

Including Stitch.

I love scrabble!

That's a super nice piece of furniture, I wish people left stuff like that lying around over here! It is uncanny how much Oscar reminds me of Milo...they both just make anything new their unofficial home ;)
