Where I Blog

The lovely and talented Kate over at Centsational Girl posed the question, "Where do you blog?" The answer, a room we call the sun room. It's a room we added on a few years ago. We have a small family room off the kitchen, but it's really not big enough for large gatherings. So we broke out the dining room wall and added the sun room. It's a big, bright and happy room. And the spiral stairs lead down to a play room.

I have a little cottage desk tucked away in the corner. I love it because it's private, yet in the heart of everything at the same time. I keep a pretty tidy little space with all the usual necessities. I have another desk in the kitchen for taking care of household related chores. So this space is just for me!

If it's late at night, I may end up on the loveseat with my feet up on the coffee table, conveniently located within reach of the always present bowl of Hershey Kisses.

I love this room. It really shines at the holidays. And it is at it's very best filled with family, friends and laughter! I also love it on a cold winter night when I can curl up in the leather chair with a good book and watch the snow fall. As you can see, it's still in summer mode at the moment. Since today is the first day of school here, I guess that means I need to break out the fall decorations. Good-bye summer!

I love to read. My books are overflowing on shelves in the family room, but did you notice all the shelter magazines in here? Yup, I love them. And this baskets holds every issue of Cottage Living - a sad day when that stopped publication!

Overall, I love my blogging space and my gathering space. But I'm ready for a few changes, the room is a bit more country than I'd like. So, that's definitely on the list of upcoming projects. But for now, it's a warm and cozy space and my favorite place to blog.

And did you notice the market bag? Yup, that's mine and it's from Molly. Don't forget that today is the last day to enter my 100th follower Thank You Giveaway. You could win your very own market bag Handmade by Molly. ..... Quick, before it's too late!!!
