My New Desk~Part 2


Desk

Welcome to my new writing nook. I'm so happy with how it turned out! A good cleaning with orange oil and all the scratches disappeared before my eyes. Plus, it smells really nice too. :0) I found both lamps at the resale store and they were 50% off! The boston fern is new and Fern (our kitty) wasn't too happy about giving her her new napping spot. She spent the entire afternoon up there!

I had fun finding places for all of my letter writing supplies. I was a little unsure of where everything should go, but once I sit down and actually use it, things will fall into place.

My favorite find was this buttery cream crocheted blanket. It is so soft! It will be perfect for keeping me warm this winter.

Here it is all closed up, but I prefer it open, so that is the way it will stay most of the time.

If you don't hear from me tomorrow, you'll know I'm sitting at my new desk, busily writing letters!

Kelli, I knew you would love it!! It's not a "monster" anymore, is it?? LOL It looks so charming and old fashioned and the perfect place to spend time writing letters or dare I say it, pay bills??Ick.. My theory is if you have to do an "unpleasant" task you might as well do it in a beautiful spot!!
