Bibelot delight L Inde A Paris Le Bibelot Exotique by Alfred Stevens via LaWhimsyI think that bibelot is a perfectly delightful word, especially considering that I adore all things that fall into the curiously beautiful trinket category. Seriously, I think it’s an addiction! I also adore tiny books and since bibelot is a descriptive of those as well, all the better!

little bibelot books via LaWhimsyBibelot is from French, from Old French beubelot, beubelet, “a small jewel, a trinket,” from a reduplication of bel, “beautiful,” from Latin bellus, “pretty, handsome.” It is related to bauble. Do you have a favorite trinket or bibelot? These are a few of my own…

Yes I do have an appreciation for the “Little things” in life! Especially cute lil’ trinkets!
