Where I Blog Party

Kate at Centsational Girl is hosting a "Where Do You Blog?" Party and, of course, I wanted to join it! 

This is my reading nook.  I live in a one-bedroom apartment with a fiancé and a cat, so I have very little extra space.  I decided a while back that I would take a corner of my bedroom and turn it into my own reading/ writing/ blogging area.  This was the result.  We had an old recliner that was upholstered in some terrible corduroy.  So I bought a pretty blue sheet and put over it.  My plan was to faux-slipcover it, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.  Instead, I draped and tucked it until it looked decent-ish.  The lamp has a really cool on switch.  It lays on the floor so it can be turned on with your foot.

This pillow created my color palette.  I absolutely love the way the blue, brown, and yellow play off each other, only adding to their individual brightness.  I would love to paint a room the blue in this pillow one day.

This is just a folding TV table covered in a pretty tablecloth.  The pen holder is a cut glass goblet from my cabinets.  The picture is of my besty (Leanne) and I.  The books are some that I've started and some that I haven't.

I am currently *trying* to read Ada, or Ardor by Nabakov.  It's a tough read because it is very Russian.  If you've read it, you know what I mean.

And this is on the wall above my chair.  My beautiful late grandmother, Jeann Hayes Greenway, looks down on me and protects me.  

This is where I blog!


  1. I love the color of the fabrics! I also have space issue because my husband and I live in a one bedroom guest I undestand!

  2. Thank you, Cortney! It's definitely not easy to personalize the type of places we live, but it's fun to try!

  3. Very nice. It's fun to see where people work! Lisa~
