Now's the time for me to have the stage manager swing this spotlight away from me and shine it right on Lou's blogging space. Let's see where she creates all those posts for three different blogs! Click on the photos if you'd like to see them full size.
Apart from tidying up just a little and lighting that little candle on my table, it's pretty much how this place looks. The large TV-set in front of my bookshelves is an old one, actually a new, old one which quit functioning one day after the guarantee ran out. It's so heavy and my better half hasn't gotten himself together to take it down to the trash yet - we live on the 4th floor and cannot (of course) just throw this thing out in normal trash. So it's still here and frankly, it's beginning to bother me a lot!
With the time delay in posting Lou's feature here on Kittling: Books, I certainly hope she's said good-bye to that television set! Something like that would, indeed, get very tiresome very fast. (And how do inanimate objects always know when their warranties run out?)
I love the red splashes of color in her lamp and filing cabinet. In the second photo I can see that she has a book on Egyptology by her laptop as well as a Blogging Essential: the drink of choice, hers being Diet Coke. (Slight pause while I go refill my green tea.)
Has anyone besides the Resident Nosy Parker (me) turned their head to the side to try to read some of the spines showing on Lou's bookcase? I didn't think I was alone!
Lou has a small space that is relatively unadorned. There are no pictures on the wall. She's in the corner. But for some reason this doesn't bother me. Lou impresses me as a person who doesn't necessarily need wall art. It is so very easy for me to picture her sitting there late at night in the pool of light cast by that small red lamp. Her mind is traveling, creating pictures, putting words together to form her posts. Imagination is alive in that corner with the red filing cabinet, and I for one am very glad.
Thank you so much for sharing your creative space with us, Lou. We really appreciate it!
Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday when I'll be featuring another book blogger's creative space on Scene of the Blog!
