I love reading novels on the iPad but, I will never be able to rid myself of physical books. There’s my beaten up Little House on the Prairie series that was given to me by my late grandparents. My thrift store deal of a 1971 first edition of the USLTA Offical Encyclopdia of Tennis. The Shel Silverstein stack.  All these loved books are artully stacked on our family room bookcase. I border on  obsession on how to arrange said bookcase. Bring on the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday, and I wanted to add some good luck charms in our house without appearing too four leaf clover. There are so many amulets that can bring you good fortune without appearing like a leprechaun is your personal interior decorator. Some inspiration…

    I really like animal and other “nature” influenced decor. I didn’t know some of these animals were also lucky- I’ll definitely be looking for ladybug and dragonfly things on Etsy!!!
