Book trouble

Slightly Foxed Spring issue came today - I was so happy to see the "foxy" adaptation of Eric Ravilious's illustration on the cover. I am in the midst of trying to figure out how to line my house with Ikea Billy bookcases - it's the geometry of turning the corners that drains me. I'm starting the green sock. Alpaca and Trekking socks became part of Barbie's wardrobe today.

i like the color of that sock a lot! aren't there corner pieces of the billy bookcase at ikea? it seems like those clever swedes would have something like that you could also borrow my architecturally minded other half for an afternoon....

When you work out the bookcases do let me know ... I spent Saturday afternoon at IKEA emptying my bank account so that my eldest daughter can have a new bedroom. One Billy Bookcase down and two to go (irritatingly they had six ex-display models - ie no building and a LOT cheaper - but in the wrong colour :( ).

I bought SF for my stepfather for Christmas, I am beginning to think I should have bought it for me!

We have that snake card game! You find home improvement solutions in the most wonderful places, Mrs. Lear--you're like the snake with the rainbow head (in a good way).
