  1. Hallo Julia,

    obwohl ich eigentlich eher blog lurker bin, musste ich angesichts der Konsalik-Bücher doch schmunzeln und einen Kommentar für Dich da lassen: Bei meinen Eltern auf dem Boden stehen haufenweise Pampers-Kartons mit den Büchern aus der Jugendzeit meiner Mutter – vor allem Konsalik und Simmel…

    Viele Grüße aus Schleswig-Holstein,
    Katrin

    1. Hi Katrin, meine Mutter sagt mir auch immer das ich die doch bitte mal lesen soll. Habe das aber noch nicht getan und deswegen hat sie mir die auch mit nach Amerika gebracht.
      LG Julia

  2. Such a cool idea Julia! I would use something different for the other side. Maybe a DIY little statue of some sort?

  3. Now THAT is a cute bookend! Very different, but I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love it Julia! Came out great. I’d be inclined to do the other one the same, but I tend to be one for symmetry.

    I’m sorry to hear about your cat. I’m a cat person too and know how much they become a member of your family and how hard it is to see them go. I like to think that they end up in kitty heaven chasing birds and sleeping in the sun all day! But its hard nonetheless. My prayers go out to you and your cute old cat.

    1. I’m with you on that, I go for the symmetry most of the time myself.

      And thanks so much for the sweet words for my kitty. He is snuggling with me right now and I certainly like the mental picture of him chasing birdies and sleeping in the sun in heaven one day.

  5. Seriously Julia! I KNEW this was your project the minute i saw it! Its just so you! Love the greek key design!

  6. Oh, I love this! I think I vote for matching bookends….but I don’t have strong feelings about it. And I’m sorry about your kitty ๐Ÿ™

    1. That’s 2 votes for matching bookends ๐Ÿ˜‰ and thanks from my kitty cat

    1. No, there isn’t. If I’d be stranded on an island, I think I’d have to bring a sharpie ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. I do know what you’re are going through with your kitty and it is hard. So sorry and I’m sure you’re doing the best you can to make him happy.

    On another note, I love the bookends – your lines are soooo straight!

  8. What a great idea! I love Greek key anything. I’ll be featuring your project on the Worthing Court Facebook page tomorrow. BTW – I’m sorry about what you’re going through with your sweet kitty.

  9. I cried when I read about your oldest baby boy.

    Now my tiny, very tiny cottage house has NO room for any bookends…. but wish I did. I have so much that I really NEED to do to my house, but no money.

    I love your creativity and all your instructions. I still am dreaming of making a kitty kat run for my 5 kitty kats, but then I bet my four pups would run with them…. they are so funny together.

    Kisses and hugs to your ailing fur baby & all the other babies & to you too.

    1. Thank you for the sweet words for my Harry. He bounced back again. This emotional roller coaster is stressful.
      That would be awesome if your dogs would run with the kitties in an outdoor run. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about hawks and larger birds trying to snatch them.

  10. I {really} LOVE this! I’m hosting a Sharpie crafts link party on my blog this week, and I’d love it if you wanted to link up! Favorites will be featured in a compilation post next week, & we’re giving away a $50 Target GC and Sharpie prize pack! http://bit.ly/1c0IEvS
