This little book corner has been something I’ve wanted to put up forever. The Ikea spice shelves have just been sitting in a closet for years simply waiting on me to make a final decision on where to put them, whoops. So they finally found a home in Harper’s room as a place I can curate a little book nook with seasonal favorites. First up, some of my favorite Valentine’s Day books for kids!
