Work Space

Jennifer at Unedited showed her desk yesterday which looked like my dream work space--airy and clean. But here's my current version.

*laptop gone for repair

And even though the bookshelves are jumbled, I try to keep the lower space clear.  Notice my Fancy Nancy glasses in the corner? hee-hee

  1. I love your workspace!!!! That is too cute!!! I think I need a pair of those Fancy Nancy glasses too!

  2. I am missing something? Where's the computer? You must use a laptop and it was off playing when you took that picture.

    And you grew up in Arkansas! Did I know that? I've lived in the Natural (barefoot) state for twenty years.

    Thank you so much for the award. Gotta run now to go think of my answers. :)

  3. Jen, thank you! Those glasses can light a fire under on your wip. ;)
    DL, lol yes I forgot to mention the laptop's needing repair so I'm on the family desktop. I grew up in Northwest Arkansas--lots of family still there. Oooo Pig Sooie! Glad you liked your award. Wasn't sure you'd go for the aproned lady.

  4. Why are you wearing a coat inside your house?

  5. That scarf looks adorable! Can I borrow your workspace? He he.

    Congrats on your award, Catherine. :-)

  6. Great answers and I love pumpkin muffins. I had totally forgotten about those.

  7. I like your answers for your mother and father :) You're work desk seems cozy.

  8. Bttrfly, because we keep the heat off. Just kidding. ;) I hadn't removed it and I tend to be cold-natured.
    Shannon, absolutely! Come on over.
    Patti, as a child I hated pumpkin but now I'm pumpkin crazy.
    Bethany, aww, I like cozy. :)

  9. I love these one-word answers! As for my work space. It changes daily. I'm a wanderer, I guess. ;)

  10. Thanks for the award! (I will get to this sometime. I don't know when--Spring Semester started on Thursday and already I'm sinking in reading and project planning. Sigh.)

    Pumpkin muffins are the best! (And I cry easily too. I'm going to say that it just means we're extra awesome.)

  11. Anissa, wandering is good too. My other office is a bookstore.
    Myrna, and Natalie, add a pumpkin spice latte--it's next to heaven.
    Sarah, don't feel pressured to do anything. You can just take the award. And I'm glad the crying thing means we're just extra awesome! ;)

  12. Catherine,
    How brave of you to post your space. I must say it looked pretty neat on this side. I confess that my desk is piled so that I can not see the mousepad through the clutter. Maybe it is a way to cover up the bills?

    -came over from Mary aalgaard's!

  13. Thanks Jennifer. But I must confess I tidied before taking the picture. ;) Glad you stopped by.


Thank you so much for your visit. I love hearing from you and dearly appreciate your comment!
