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

     In my hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio (think: Bedford Falls in Frank Capra’s 1946 ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’), you are surrounded by rolling green hills, a powerful river, waterfalls, delicious restaurants, quaint Western Reserve architecture, and (drrrrumroll) great shopping.     Thank God, no Mr. Potter.     But in my story Mary Bailey gets […]

      This is probably not the best way to start this post, but, don’t you just love the feel of something pliable in your hands?     I’m talking clay, or dough, or dirt, or maybe a bit of molten metal (smelting under a torch, chamfering the rough edges, forming the burning malleable mass into […]
