  1. I am way behind in my feed reader and just saw this today. I don’t comment often but must say this is so neat! I love it! I need to do something like this for my bedroom…

  2. My favorite book series are the Betsy-Tacy books, and I do have two copies of the first in the series. Although there aren’t nearly as many versions of them as Alice in Wonderland.

    I do love this idea, and think it would be so many fun to do something similar in a nursery using prints from all different type sof children’s books.

  3. Just had to chime in and say how much I loved this project. I’ve done something similar with much loved books, (framing pictures of my favouirte childrens’ books for my baby daughter’s room,) but not to the same extent with the quotes – gorgeous! Love your blog.

  4. I was just catching up on the last few weeks of your blog and am feeling the need to comment about how absolutely amazing, inspiring, and innovative you two are. I have always admired your little projects, but being a homeowner now, I appreciate these things in a whole new way. We’ve lived in our house for a little over three months now, and despite the decorating touches I’ve added, it still looks like we just moved in. Achieving such a layered, personal, stylish yet lived-in look is a gigantic task that I’m realizing many people never achieve in their homes. The fact that you guys are already there after a year and a half is AMAZING. You and Corey are gifted with such a great eye for approachable design. I sincerely hope you guys develop a blog following that rivals that of blogs like Young House Love. You so deserve it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks so much, Bri! That’s so sweet of you, and nice to hear – sometimes I feel like we’re taking FOREVER to get things done. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Amanda-

    If I didn’t already love your site (which I do!), and I didn’t already feel like we have a lot in common (I have two puppies that are my children, I’m a teacher, I’m an avid reader…), then this project would have sealed the deal to convince me of how awesome you are:-). This is absolutely one of my fav-o-rite projects I’ve ever seen done. Ever. I also love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland…and have been known to quote Jabberwocky, too. I’m an English major-I can’t help it!! I will absolutely be making one of these, and have to pick a book (it will be SO hard to pick a favorite!) and a quote….thank you for the awesome inspiration!!

    1. Aw, thanks! Glad you like it!

  6. Great idea, and it turned out awesome! I love Alice in Wonderland, but my obsession is probably Grimm’s Fairytales. The old versions are pretty dark!

  7. This is such a cool piece of art! I’m not sure I could sacrifice a book – when I heard our library uses old books for kindling, I refused to donate there. Your sister did a fab job on the letters. I’ve had a Cricut for 6 years and I’m nowhere near that good!

  8. I love this idea so much! I want to do this in my sunroom (where all of my books live)

  9. That is such a fun idea! It turned out so good. My favorite book ever is Ella Enchanted, but I think it’d also be fun to do one with Harry Potter!

  10. Aw, I love it! I actually have that pink copy of Alice although I haven’t read it yet. Maybe I’ll add that to me to-do list soon.

    My favorite book(play?) and the only one I have more than one copy of is A Midsummer Night’s Dream. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. This is such a cool idea! I don’t think I own four copies of any particular book, and it’s hard for me to pick a favorite, but I think the quote you chose is excellent! I might have to try this sometime!
