Find an Art Book
Before reading April’s Daychanger, you might want to take a quick peek at your coffee table and what’s on it…
I recently stumbled upon a gorgeous coffee table art book at a local homegoods store and snapped it up. It’s not something I would normally think of shopping for… books for gifts, books to read, school books, etc. yes, but the act of purchasing a thick beautiful picture book (not for a toddler) is a pretty rare event in our house. In fact, judging by the age of the old magazines and gum wrappers I had to clear off to put my new treasure on display, the last time I purchased an Art Book might have been college; days that seem to be getting farther and farther away.
The one I bought is a Kate Spade version – a favorite designer with bold colors and an uplifting message. Not only is lazily browsing the pages like stepping in to a wonderful art museum, it flat out makes me feel like a grownup living an interesting life. I think finding a new art book for your coffee table is a Danchanger, whether you are spending your hours refilling sippy cups or meeting retired friends to play bridge. We all want to live a fascinating, full existence for the brief and wonderful time that we are graced to be here. Yes to art books that make that happen!
Hope you find a great one,
