Question: How many books does it take to make a Christmas tree?
Answer: A looooooooot of books!
It’s my favorite time of year again, that most wonderful time of the year!
Merry Christmas people!
So, my husband and I decided… Gotcha! Bet you didn’t see that coming!
Yeah, I got married a couple of weeks ago to the best boyfriend in the whole world, now promoted to the position of best husband in the entire universe!
Since I was last here, I carried out a piece of research and wrote a distinction-worthy and distinction-awarded paper, completed my Masters degree at the University of Leeds, moved back to Nigeria and finished the year with the most awesome thing!
It was a beautiful ceremony.
And after that, my husband and I went our new home into which he was trying to magically make 2 rooms of books magically disappear into a much smaller space.
I had been flirting with the idea of a book tree, after seeing pictures on the internet. Let me tell you, it is much harder than it seems. And my tree was determined to be a dwarf.
Also, I kept goading my husband by telling him that we didn’t have enough books for a tree. Let me tell you, that’s almost as grave as challenging his masculinity! He kept fetching books.
We ended up with this after my second first attempt…
I wish myself better luck next year, and hope to God that Hubby will agree to take it down soon.
Happy New Year people!
The ottoman in the pictures – because I love a good DIY and because I couldn’t resist the idea of upcycling an old tyre into something beautiful!
