In Search of Some Good ol' Bookends

 I'm in the market for some original bookends. Truth be told, I own way too many cookbooks and there is no more room on our bookshelf.
 I was thinking about just using two red bricks, and then i started googling bookends, and there are so many cool ideas out there...
Vinyl bookends (nerdnest)

"BOOK END" bookends! (via)

Cute little eggplant bookends (pillowhappy)
A bicycle bookend (via)

 Typewriter bookends (via)
Even London Traffic Bookends (Susan Bradley)

You name it, it's out there! They're all pretty cute... but in the end, I'll probably just end up sticking with the bricks ; )

Ooh I love the typewriter bookends. Perhaps you'll find something heavy weight to use as a book end that isn't even a bookend or bricks. Someone in my apartment building threw away a damaged Le Creuset and I use it in my kitchen bookshelf to hold up the cook books and as a decorative piece. I'll take a photo of it sometime. Goodluck with your search and
*thanks for the sweet comment. Totally made my day.
