There's an interesting bookcase in the September issue of Country Living. They took a wooden cable spool (they are so great for recycling!) and added 12 dowels--spaced around the spool. You shelve the books in between the dowels. You can paint the whole thing and add castors if you want.
There are some kitchen and home makeovers in this issue too; and the Real Estate Sampler focuses on historic fixer-uppers.
Sparkle note: If you drag a treat from the box, and click on it again, Sparkle will jump up and catch it!
