My Creative Space


Brenda at The Brenda Blog has posed the question
"Where Do you Blog?" Visit her blog and see all types of creative spaces.
This room many years ago was our oldest son's bedroom. It was cool. He had bedroom furniture plus a sofa for lounging. After he left home, we converted this room into a game room or TV room for our other 2 children. After they left home..and our youngest son took the sofa with him, we decided to again re-do this room and make it a combination home office and TV room---so guess you would call it a den.
I bought a nice big desk... plenty of room for a computer, printer and pictures. That white box you see is filled with wildflower seeds waiting to be planted. I have a dictionary and a few garden books in front of the laptop.


My husband picked out the sofa as this is his room for TV viewing.


But I got to pick out the TV cabinet!












This is just an old bookshelf that I think was originally in both boys rooms at one time. It is now home to vacation books and pictures and little souvenir's from our travels.
This room is not fancy, but it is very comfortable. The desk looks very clean and straight right now because I haven't used it all week. We have been helping Allie and her daddy move into their cute little rent house. They are moved, dh is playing golf, and I am off to do lots of catching up!

I love your black cabinet! So nice to have a room you both can enjoy. I just got your email, and I'm going over to link your site right now. Thanks for joining the tour!

Brenda--I love the black cabinet too! It's just my style--and I love antique black. Thanks for hosting this tour. It has been very interesting and sooo enjoyable!


PGL- Well, this room has not been used very much this past week, so it has remained neat and organized. Thanks for the compliment. I had lots of fun (and still do) decorating this room.


JJ-It is very comfortable. You know me, I'm not into fancy--I love rustic and cozy. It's a nice place to blog.

Meadowview-who needs fancy when you can have comfortable. I think its a beautiful room. I think black furniture is so neat so I really like the t.v. cabinet. At least with a t.v. in there you can still share time with your husband and blog at the same time. My poor husband sits in the living room while I'm in his office on the computer. I feel pretty guilty about this but gee what's more important? ;lol)

Meadowview Thymes said...

Susie--lol! Actually this room started out to be "his" room. I'm afraid that only lasted long enough for him to pick out the sofa he wanted! :)

Another place for you to enjoy. You have so many places to enjoy whether it be in your own yard and garden, your mother's yard, out fishing, camping, hiking. and even your special blogging place. That is great!!!

What a very nice space to blog in. Mine is a disgrace, which is why I don't share.

Meadowview Thymes said...

Hi Debbi-- This room is not used very much anymore, so it is a great place to have the computer. Many years ago it was the perfect hang out for kids. Lots of good memories are in this room!

Oh man! I just love that sofa! Leather is the best and it looks very comfy indeed. Pretty desk too.

Meadowview Thymes said...

Thanks Tina! I think my wonderful husband did a pretty good job of picking out that sofa. I like the desk too--it's nice and big so I can spread out books and still have room for other things.
