The Bustes

See those little men supporting each row of books? They're little alabaster figurines. What started as random composers picked up in the odd browse through the home goods section of Marshall's or TJ Maxx has now turned into a full-blown commitment to systematically seek and obtain these curios.

To Trey's great delight, he recently discovered that you can acquire these figures, or bustes as Addison creatively redubbed the plural of bust, on eBay. And not just any figures. Greek gods and goddesses shipped from, of all places, Greece.

The price is surprisingly friendly and he made a recent acquisition of 9 or so.

They actually fit quite nicely considering the age of most of his tomes, him being an historian and all.

Rather fetching, don't you think?
