Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Covers I'd Frame as Pieces of Art

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This Tuesday's topic is The Top Ten Book Covers I'd Frame as Pieces of Art.

I'm really more of a photograph girl than an art girl. In my apartment, I've got six art pieces - 3 were free, 1 of them I saved up for, 1 I got for Christmas, and 1 I ordered from the artist directly. And they're scattered around my apartment. So here's a quick rundown of what I have where.
 
Over the fireplace that is hidden behind a bookcase, I have a large painting of gardenias with a verse that says "Welcome, Bless all those who enter here." This is the one I saved up for.

On the wall that would be the outside wall, I have two angel prints. One is a little girl in a garden. It was free through a Home Interiors Party years ago. The other is the one I ordered from the artist directly. It's a little boy in a garden. When I ordered it, the artist asked if I wanted it on canvas or paper (same price). I was like, "Canvas." I took it to Hobby Lobby and had it framed in a similar style to the little girl print. 

On the wall under the stairs, is a Thomas Kinkade print. It was free. I'd worked at bookstores and when the glass broke on this picture, we had to write it off as damaged and couldn't sell it. So all it cost me was the price of replacing the glass. There are some at my mom's house that are like that too.

On the wall opposite the Kinkade print, the kitchen wall, is one called the "Lion of the Tribe of Judah." It's the one I got for Christmas several years ago.

Upstairs over my bed, is a large painting that looks like a Kinkade print, but it's not. It was also free from that same Home Interiors party ages ago.

Then I've got lots of photographs scattered around. 

So since I'm not an art lover, finding book covers of books I'd want to frame was hard.

But I think I managed it. 

1.  The Way Home by Kathryn Spencer




2. Showers in Season by Terri Blackstock & Beverly LaHaye



3. Beyond the Picket Fence by Lori Wick



4. Victim of Grace by Robin Jones Gunn



5. Tea at Glenbrooke by Robin Jones Gunn

7. The Bluebonnet Trail Cookbook



8. Farmer's Daughter Cookbook by Dawn Stoltzfus

And there you have it. Ten book covers I'd frame.
