A Room of Her Own


I painted more on Graffiti Love this week, but I had trouble capturing what I'd done in a photograph so I'm going to share my studio instead. It isn't much, but I am SO thankful for this little room of my own.

To the right of my art table is a large picture window that overlooks my porch.  To the left of the peach chair is the living room where MUCH living happens. And I'm in the big middle of it.

By day, my kids are in and out talking, asking questions, sharing together. By night, it's quiet and thought-provoking--time for me to focus.

I would love to highlight each the little thing and share what it all means to me but alas, I'm out of time.  I'll save that for another day.




Inspired by Amanda Soule's blogA Friday ritual. A few photos  - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

  2. Looks like a fun and creative space. Very cozy--I love bookshelves lined with lots of books. Feels like they are "hugging" the room :).

  7. It's a beautiful work room. You must be very neat not to have paint on that lovely peach chair. My art room looks so plain next to this one with REAL furniture, not castoff desks like mine. Faye

  12. It's so nice to see your studio space! I finally reorganized everything since I got my new vintage buffet but still need to changes things up on the wall before I share with the world. Isn't it wonderful to have a place where you and your loved ones feel creative & inspired?
    I hope you are having a wonderfully productive week.
    Much Love,
