Oh that we may always have books! Out of all the things that bring me comfort in this scrumptious little world, books are right up there with dark chocolate and a cuddle with my babba. I need them you see. In the same way I need oxygen. Some are old friends. some just passing through. But all leave their mark.All have contributed to who I am...

To me books live in different rooms in my home according to the needs that they satisfy. Simple Abundance will always be next to my bed. Constance Spry in the kitchen where she right fully belongs. They are there to be used, not to be revered and I am proud of their dog eared spines and yellowing pages if only because they are proof that I am always willing to learn...

What follows is a list of the books that best capture the essence of Brocantehome. A list of reference books I return to, time and time again. Books that have found a place in my house and more tellingly in my heart...
