My New Space







Starting this blog has really gotten my creative juices flowing again, and I think having the girls go back to school has helped with this as well. This past Saturday my personal computer that I do all of my business work on died. I was instantly in a panic and my husband offered up his Mac laptop to to work off of since he has another huge system in the office that we share. Well, I started to sit with him at his desk since my "dead" computer is on the other side of the room on my desk which is all built in and very elegant, but this is the one room in the house that I have not "made my own" if you know what I mean. Charley has clients that come over here as well, so it is the one space that I left "unpinked" if you will. As much as we love each other, sharing a desk is not very fun.

So I got to thinking last night that the parlor would make a gorgeous office for me! Being the incredible (and handsome) hubby that he is , Charley took the day off to help me with the girls since I had surgery on my foot yesterday, and little did he know that he would be moving around furniture and helping me create a new space for myself. I love the freedom of the laptop and I do not think I can go back, so this will be a perfect space for me, and this magnificent antique Danish desk was going to waste in our bedroom and the bench and vintage table that were in the parlor will get used for sure with a new seating area in our romantic bedroom.

I love this new room , and I love my desk, and just sitting at it to work is inspiring to me, but truly , nothing gets me going more than moving some furniture around, I love making old spaces feel new again and using rooms for things that they were not originally intended for!

I hope you enjoyed my small room make over.
All my best,
Sanya

Hi Sanya, Remember me? Beverly. You have bought many items from me at the No. Ky. Burlington Flea Market. I think of you often...visiting your website frequently. I have not been selling at Burlington for at least 2 years....trying to get pregnant, resulting in twins, our little girl, Lorna Anne, and our little boy, Jamie Joseph. They are 9 months old now, and I am longing to get back to Burlington. (Remember...I delivered the French Limoges antique china set to your lovely home?) I sell my wares in a booth with a girlfriend at an antique mall and still frequent yard sales. I hope some day, since I now an a stay-at-home mom, to have my own website. Love the idea of turning your parlor into your office. I may do Sept. and Oct. Burlington Flea....may see you there. Blessings to you and yours.

Hi Sanya, Kudos to you! Your new office is great! Don't know if you remember me from the Burlington Flea Market in northern KY. You bought a set of Limoges dishes from me, which I delivered to your beautiful Kentucky home. Blessings to you and your family.
