Trees, part 1 – tree of knowledge

With Christmas looming, and a house in the middle of some minor but disruptive renovations, what to do with all the books piled in the room that is about to be slept in by visitors? Enter the Christmas book tree. Enrobed with tinsel and lights, topped with tinfoil holly, it has been the perfect solution for the Christmas season.

Apparently, the Flinders University Library did the same thing successfully a couple of years ago with law reports – being green and of similar sizes. And it has been suggested that next year I could try it with archaeology books – it would be a smaller tree.

    Hi Susan
    We like your tree of knowledge! We didn’t have a tree at all except for decorating the one in the garden here in Provence! We are heading to Florence on Friday for a medieval week – part of my course in Trinity. I hope to see you in the summer in Trim. Let me know when you’re back!
    Bonne année, Aine de Navan Gate.

      How lovely to hear from you so quickly Aine. Enjoy Florence. I’m not planning to be in Trim this summer at the moment, but who can tell what the future will bring? A very happy new year to you.

  2. Awesome idea! I would love to replicate it in my house as I am running out of bookshelf space, but sadly it’s too small! Loving your blog btw, happy posting! x
