When I was a little girl, I saw a picture of an old writing table. It had many little nooks and crannies, and it delighted me to think of all the little trinkets I could hide in such a table. In some ways, I am very much a girly girl. Ever since that time, I have wanted a table like that, and today, I had my first writing table delivered.
In such a small house as the one we live in, there is little room for a girl to have some space to call her own. Fortunately, our bedroom is slightly larger than our bed strictly requires, and so my new writing table has taken up residence there. I plan to put an old, comfortable lounge chair next to it, along with a floor lamp for ambience while I sit and read at night.
It was fortunate timing really. We have a great floor lamp in our lounge room, that I have draped a shawl over. It provides perfect ambience in the lounge area. The other night, I was contently reading the e-reader I scored for Christmas, when the husband walks in, turns on the television and sits down.
Yeah. I don’t think so! Something needed to be done!!!
Everyone needs a space to call their own I think. The husband has his office, and the kids have their bedroom and toy room. They all seem fairly content with these spaces. I guess the bedroom is really my space, however aside from some butterflies on the wall, I haven’t really made it my own yet, and thus I never really go in there except for sleep and to get changed. This table is a big step forward towards really having a space to call my own.
I can’t wait to add the finishing touches!!!
