A while back, two of my BBB’s (BestBloggingBuddies) and I were talking (well, really emailing/texting/PM’ing- no one actually ‘talks’ anymore- right?) to each other about what the spaces we work in look like, so, I thought I’d show you… Where The Magic Happens (and take you on a trip down memory lane) ~ This ‘Space’ […]

  • Sue - What about that wonderful lamp that matches the framed art; just love the lamp along with the entire office.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I sorta did this one for you Sue. Remember when you asked me to take a pic of my office? Well here it is. The lamp is covered in a black/white toile fabric. I had a master bedroom once that I wallpapered ENTIRELY with black/white toile- walls, AND ceiling, matching lamps, drapes, etc…. it was FABULOUS!!! I’ll have to look for a picture. What’s your space look like?ReplyCancel

    • Sue - My office is a mess right now with too much stuff!! I hate my desk. It is a big desk, but not in a helpful way.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I hate that when our work space is too large (wink)ReplyCancel

  • Petra - This is a very pleasant space! Truly: fresh and uncluttered, yet intimate. To me, it’s not about a specific object, but I much like the overall atmosphere due to every item you picked to join you there – I find it very inspiring! I love that you opened up your closet and gave us a peek into it; your description of each object is telling so much! Wish we could see the top of that paper maché head! 😉 xoReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - It is the ‘overall’ atmosphere (as you so beautifully put). Intimate yet stimulating. Surrounded by objects that have meaning. I know YOU understand. Love ya gal! xxxoooReplyCancel

  • Julie Phelps - You created a beautiful space! I won’t share any pics of mine, as my new space changes throughout the day. Now that I have moved I no longer have a dedicated office, but do use a corner of my bedroom (wee corner desk) plus the nearby bed with a zillion pillows that are constantly being re-arranged to suit the current condition of my back. Due to previous foot issues and surgeries I often use the laptop on my bed in order to keep my feet semi-propped up. Comfort is a good thing.
    But throughout the day I may use my laptop or iPad in the dining room, the gathering room, or in my art studio.
    Now, the ART studio is definitely a dedicated space and is my particular haven.
    Sometimes, the kitchen is my haven….
    Oh dear, it seems I am spread out all over the place!
    Another note: Ass-sprawl is also addressed – possibly improved upon – by using a giant exercise ball as your seat. Good for lots of body parts, actually. Just sayin…ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - So sorry to hear about your little desk and your feet but…….You have an ART STUDIO!!!!! MY DREAM!!!!!! That helps make everything better, I’m sure! And the ‘exercise ball’ is a good idea. I gal after my own heart. xxxooo ps: I don’t mind that you spread out all over the place, in fact, I liked it!ReplyCancel

  • Patty Rumaker - I love your office space!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Thanks Patty! It’s small but happy- and I LOVE having a big glorious window with which to peer down on the crazy people of New Orleans!ReplyCancel

  • Julie - I need a space like this!! I write on my bed with my laptop. I’m totally lame. LolReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - My working space is, well, a bit less cluttered!

    Except under the desk. That I have no idea how that happened.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Froman - Wow, that is a pleasant house/space. I’d send you mine….but it’s just my bed. That’s where I sit with my laptop…after I get home from work. In a cubicle. LOL.ReplyCancel

I’m off to a Blogging Convention.That’s right. Your eyes are actually reading BLOGGING CONVENTION. Who knew?Most really good, professional, highly regarded bloggers with blogs would ask a bunch of her peeps to pinch-hit for her when she’s gone, filling in, so to speak, keepin’ her readership up, probably increasing it! And spreadin’ the LUV. But not me. […]

     I went to my ‘Colorist’ the other day (yes, I have one. He does my hair people. On my head. EeeGads).     He and I decided to ‘book me’ for the next several months (again- Head. Out. Of. Gutter).     David asked if I preferred mornings or afternoons.     DUH! And that is […]

  • The Desert Rocks - Not I, said the little red hen–or something like that anyway. Hope you find your mystery person.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - It’s not me, since I don’t get into blogs, generally until later in the day.

    Just as long as it’s not Kathy Bates in Misery being your number one fan…ReplyCancel

  • Kim - It’s not me because I’ve been a very sucky fan recently, but I intend to change that. However, I’ll spare you MY first thing in the morning because I usually get up at 3:00 am. Never play worst case scenario with a barista when it comes to getting up in the morning. Someone has to make the coffee, you know.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Very clever response Ms. Kim. And, someone has to do it- as long as it’s not me. Hahaha. Hope to see you more often around these parts. I’ll brew the coffee!ReplyCancel

  • Mari Collier - I doubt if it is me as I don’t necessarily see your posts every time. Then again, I’m on the computer by 6:30 a.m. which is 8:30 a.m. your time. Yes, I’m one of those morning people.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I loved how this post took me on a curvy road. It was a fun ride. Tag you,re it cuz this blog is on the way to famousness.ReplyCancel

  • Vashti Q-Vega - Ahh! I’m busted! You caught me! I just can’t wait to read your witty posts every morning. Haha!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - What?! Is it really you? I’ve been thinking it was either my friend Dave or another guy named Brian. But I’m THRILLED it’s you! Your such a trip Vashti and I’m soooo glad you enjoy my little diddies. XXXOOOReplyCancel

  • Lisa D.B. Taylor - I’m not up and reading posts by that time either, though I’ve always aspired to be a morning person it just ain’t gonna happen 🙂ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Oh yea. Morning I ain’t, so things like catching planes, and keeping early appointments is a challenge. I think I’m rewarding myself after 20 years of getting up with my kids.ReplyCancel
