Every Nook and Cranny | A Temporary Reader

 This is a stale post.  Don't you smell the stank?
For fresh ideas and the newest new new stuff 
why don't you head on over to the blog we actually update.

Love to see you there.
Carry on as you were.


One of the things I love about our place
is that there is so much space
that can be used in so many different ways
because walls don’t define what has to be
take for instance the landing at the top of our stairs

 that I turned into this pretty space

In this little nook,
I brought in just about all of my favorite things

After we got puppy dog,
the Paupasan chair got moved to the nook.
out of our bedroom

I love it here because
it is far more comfortable to hang out
in this chair and read
than to sit in a parson’s char.
Just saying

Another fave piece in this space is the pillow on the chair.
I actually bought that pillow cover years ago
When I lived in New Mexico
I bought it at a Pow Wow.
The same Pow Wow that I bought my postcard prints at
But not the same place I bought these calendar prints at

I LOVE Native Americana.
Reminds me of my grandmother
and all the questions I really wish I would have asked her
Other pieces of love in this area include
Parts of my mini | small clock collection
My favorite wedding headshot photo
My vintage camera collection
Lots of my fave coffee table books
Small chest
And those awesome Crate & Barrel Leaning shelves

Other pieces of me that really make this home:

Those billowy, worn, old, green curtains
“&;” (because there is always an “and did you think about…”)
Wood cubby box
Part of my shapely glass collection
My three favorite ceramic vases

And if you stepped back a littl
you would see the $16 Art Binge

I “finished” the space at this

Some closer looks
at what I love here
include this tray of awesome

The heart rock was from
one of the most awesome
beach trips
with him

The shell was collected YEARS ago
the awesome bell | chime
was given to me by my mom
back when I was in high school
after one of her yard sale stops

The piece of ocean rock on this shelf
was from the first trip I took to California
with that guy

The clock is the first small clock I ever bought.
It touched off an awesome collection.

This is a closeup of part of my most favorite
part of my shapely glass collection

There’s a mister
There is a tall skinny
There is a squat, fat shorty
And there is a little shorty
Those bottles rock my world.

This whole space rocks my world.
Now if I could only get more time
to plug in and blog
or unplug and read a book
Can’t wait to be home
for more than a few hours
at a time.
