This little bookshelf has only a few books, but see how it is accessorized with a few frames an oval clock, and a few round balls on a pedestal -- it is nice to add in some round elements to such a rectangular space.
Notice the plant and the wicker basket. It is always good to add a natural element or two.
In this room they took out some of the shelves
and hung larger pieces of art on the back.
See how many different ways you can decorate a bookshelf!
Now go and give it a try at your house!

Here are a number of former missionaries that I served with, American and Filipino.
And our sweet mission president in the middle.
I tried the Pancit but it was not exactly as I remembered it---
This was a typical sari-sari store, they now offer cell phones
and minutes for sale.
Everyone has a cell phone!
A couple of darling boys at the market.
We had to visit the fish market.
Aren't they adorable.
The bananas and mangos are from heaven --- I could not get enough.
We attended a Cultural Celebration put on by 2000 youth from our church in the area.
They performed for our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson.
On the last day we were able to attend the dedication of the new Cebu City Temple.
It was a remarkable journey and one that I am so grateful to have shared with dear friends in the Philippines, former missionaries and especially my daughter, Tiffany.
