Studio Friday theme is all round things!

Life can feel very boring and square sometimes, but if we look around carefully we see the rounds in life. The rounds don’t have sharp edges, the round moves with grace.

It’s in the details, the view you get when you go close to things, that you get to see the round, if you know what I mean. Maybe we should all look closer more often?

Buttons, thimble and measure tape
Lots of things that are very small are round, like these buttons in an almost round jar, the top of a thimble and the tape measure coiled together in front of me.

Decorating with balls of yarn

Books are not round things, right? But rounding of the edges of a book shelf is easy when you forget your balls of yarn here and there in the shelves and on other spots of the room.

I really think that very few porcelain or glass ornaments can beat the beauty of a basket of skeins with knitting needles in them!

Round boxes in the book shelf

And most baskets and containers are square, but I found some round ones at a flea market last summer. And one was even filled with old black buttons – double score!

I love to arrange my books. Novels are kind of alphabetically arranged on writers last name, but then I have most of the books on subjects. All crafting books stands together with home decoration books and pattern books. These are the books I treasure the most right now, except for some children’s book from my childhood.

Time to round up for today! What do you keep in your bookshelf?
