[Top Ten] Bookish Items I Would Like To Own
That Artsy Reader Girl hosts Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly themed blogging meme for book lovers. This week, the theme is “Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own”, so I’ve selected ten items from my reasonable and extravagant wish lists and have written them below.
1. Elsa Peretti® Heart Bookmark from Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany & Co. has been recently expanding their selection of home decor and accessories, and this sterling silver bookmark is one of the lesser of the ridiculous items in those categories. It’s something I say I would never buy even if I could spend $60 on a bookmark, but in case you need to know: that’s a lie.
2. Jane Austen Replica Ring from Jane Austen’s House Museum
Simple and elegant, this ring is “a true and authentic copy” of the one on display at the Museum, which had been in the Austen family for many years.
3. Balloon Dog Bookend (in every color) from imm Living
I’m oddly obsessed with this bookend design, although not too much I suppose (nervous laughter) since I’ve never purchased one. Anyway, I’ve always been pretty indifferent about balloon animals, but there’s something about the colors and patterns of these, and the fact that they’re bookends, that really draws me in.
(side note: the coordinating lamp is a nice idea, but I think the design needs to be reworked a little.)
4. Book Sleeve by StoryTimeSleeve
I love this Sapphire Roses pattern, but really all of the sleeves from StoryTimeSleeve are beautiful, and look so well made. I can think of at least five of my books that would be a perfect fit inside (not all at once, of course).
5. Harry Potter™ Hogwarts Gift Crate from Williams Sonoma
I know this is cheating a little, since there are multiple items in the crate and plenty of single items available in Williams Sonoma’s HP collection, but the entire crate fits the extravagant theme I’m going for here. Hogwarts Crests Cookie Cutters, a Hogwarts Spatula, Hogwarts Beverage Bottle, Hogwarts Towel and 2 Snitch Ice Balls are inside.
6. Phat Dog Vintage Libary 1,000 Piece Puzzle from Galison
Perfect for a rainy day or blustery snow storm; this puzzle would also be fun to put together while listening to an audiobook.
7. Vintage Books Throw Blanket by Magenta Rose Designs for Society6
This throw blanket has such beautiful colors, and it would look great in my apartment [and draped around me like a cloak]. I like how much depth the holly pattern gives the shelves; I would certainly use it outside of the holiday season.
8. A Candle(s) from Frostbeard Studio
These are the first bookish candles I ever encountered, and everything from their scent descriptions to their colors and labels are oh so charming.
9. Personalized Ex Libris Stamp
I would love my own Ex Libris Stamp – although whether or not I’d actually stamp my books is unknown. There are a lot of pretty ones on Etsy, but one of my favorites is this one from ExlibrisGallery.
10. Book Spine High Heels from Charlotte Olympia
These magical heels were part of the 2013 Fairytale Collection and if I had had the chance (and funds) to purchase them, I certainly would have. Unfortunately the only ones I can find for sale are not in my size. Shucks.
What are some of the items on your bookish wishlist(s)? Do we share any of the same items? Let me know in a comment, and be sure to check out more posts for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday here.
I’d love to do that jigsaw puzzle. It looks like so much fun.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I think so, too! Thanks for dropping in; checking out your post now. 🙂
I WANT THAT JANE AUSTEN REPLICA RING SO BAD!! 😍💍
I KNOW, RIGHT?!
Aww the bookend baloon doggie!!
I had seen one when I had went for a family vacation when I was unemployed still- it was a tin dachshund shaped one 😍 but was almost 30$… and so didnt fitted in my budget so it sadly had to stay there .. 😪
Oh that sounds so cute! And I hear you – I suppose I could print and cut out pictures of these dogs and paste them on the wooden bookends I made for under $5…🤔😃
The Harry Potter collection from William Sonoma (and from Pottery Barn) are SO INCREDIBLE and I want all of it! Plus if my apartment could just be cozy blankets I would be such a happy person.
Love this list!
My TTT Here!
Yes they are! I am also obsessed with the HP beanbags from Pottery Barn – especially the Hedwig one. 😏😆

Oooh which one do you have?
Haha! You sucked me into clicking on the lamp link – I agree! Definitely needs reworking! 😉
Hahaha! I’m glad you agree. 😆
Oh my goodness, those shoes! They are amazing, like something from a dream!
Although basically I want everything on your list.

I was so happy to stumble upon them! Definitely dreamy.
OH mY GAwd! The Jane Eyre ring and the book heals?! HUNEY. *applause*
Aj @ Read All The Things!
I’d be scared to stamp my books. I do really like those stamps, though.
Yeah, I think I would also be too scared. I’d likely just fill random notebook pages with the stamp. 😌
