For years, I have kicked myself for selling back my Art History 101 textbook in college. What was I thinking? A beautiful hardcover book showcasing amazing art from the beginning of time to current. Hundreds of pages of gorgeous, glossy photos of the world's most valued pieces. And I'm pretty sure I sold it back to the bookstore for a measly $30. Ugh!
Well, my friends, my favorite discount store has saved me (again). While perusing HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago, I spied The History of Art. Hard cover. Hundreds of glossy art photos. $15 bucks. Yayuhhhhh! (And yes, I said that out loud in the HomeGoods aisle, of course).
Now this beautiful gray hard covered book sits in a pile with some of my other favorites, including my Nate Berkus design book, my autographed copy of Design *Sponge At Home, the Audrey Hepburn book my little sister gave me for Christmas and the Picasso book David and I picked up when we visited the exhibit in Seattle two Thanksgivings ago. And you all know that this little vignette is one of my favorites in my house, complete with my Craigslist nesting tables and my Nana's refurbished milk glass lamp!
So tell me, what amazing finds did you come across this week? Any good book deals?
