    I love that tree bookshelf – I need one!
    Actually I probably need a whole forest to hold all my books, but still how cute!

    Lovely! I love Meg’s wall quilts. It’s brilliant how she’s captured something so ugly and made it look so modern and beautiful

    I’m loving the tree bookshelf more than I can say. I wish I could figure out the price and how to order one!

  5. maike

    you can order the tree on there website for 1490 gpb (I know by emailing the designer), a bit to much for me, so I just stay in love…
