For my fellow bibliophiles and book collectors: 30 of the most creative bookshelves designs. I’ve always wanted to arrange my books by color, but they’d be a bitch to find.
I park like an idiot. I want them. I will use them. And, the first sticker goes to…. well, you know who you are. (Even though you are parking challenged, I love you dearly.)

Raising Sand was one of my most-listened to albums of 2007 (this cover isn’t on it.) As one person wrote in the youtube comments, ‘I hope they continue recording together for the rest of their lives.’
