Scene of the Blog Featuring Drey of Drey's Library!

I've been enjoying this week's featured book blogger for quite some time. Drey works full-time, she's married, she's raising a family. She also is a voracious reader and manages to keep two excellent blogs going.

When you want to see what books she's talking about, check out Drey's Library. If you'd like to read her rants and muses about life in general, head on over to Drey's House. I'm sure you're going to enjoy both her blogs!

Before we take a look at her creative spaces, don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it in a larger size. Now... let's go see where Drey does her magic!

I’ll admit it, I was thrilled when asked to be featured on Scene of the Blog... Then I panicked. Oh. Emm. Gee. I have to show photos of where I blog at/from? Yikes!

One reason for that panic is, I don’t have a set space--either for work, or for blogging. Sure I have a desktop computer, and a laptop that I use in lieu of the desktop. I also have a bookcase full of my TBR pile patiently waiting to be conquered. And a reading chair. Guess I’ll start there...

Desktop computer, TBR shelves, reading chair...

And try not to blush at everyone looking at my messy messy space. 

I do a lot of my reading and blogging from the living room couch. Sure, my reading chair’s comfy and all, but it’s in the family room/den and that’s not where the boys hang out. So while they’re watching tv or playing video games, I’m perched on the end of the couch with my books and laptop readily accessible. 

The comfy couch
And then there’s the dining room table. Yes, I know. But it (sometimes) beats Starbucks. 

The dining room table
This is on a good day, too. Usually I’m spread out all over, with books and notebooks and papers everywhere. 

Because I don’t have a dedicated space, I do all my organizing online. I use Google Calendar fanatically, and loved when I found I could sync it to my phone along with my work calendar. I have a notebook I scribble thoughts in, but I rarely crack it open, so it hasn’t been as handy as I’d like. Then again, I’m not the most organized person out there. If I can remember to put my thoughts in Evernote (there’s an app for that!) I’m usually good to go.

All I can say is that I'm glad no one can see my desk right now. In comparison, your spaces look as though Martha Stewart just left after a quick tidy and a couple of Good Things!

I love the art on your walls, your comfy couch, those dining room chairs.... and I like your blogs! Thanks so much for taking the time to show us your creative spaces. We certainly appreciate it!

Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday when another book blogger from our worldwide community will be showing us some very creative spaces!


  1. I love Drey's blog too! I'm amazed at how much she reads with her busy life. Her spaces look great!

  2. I've been following Drey's blog for sometime now and I love that she shared her creative spaces with us.

    Drey, Your spaces are not messy at all. It really looks like a great
    place to work/play/read.

  3. Is that a box full of books still to be put on the shelves? That yellow chair also look very comfy... or at least it's pretty :)

  4. Awwwww you guys are too nice to me! The mess drives me crazy, but I'd rather be reading than cleaning... ;) I'm sure you understand...

    Yes, that's a box of books to add to the shelves. As you can see, I ran out of space. o.O

    I <3 my reading chair--it reclines, too!

  5. Hey drey,
    You don't have anything to worry about at all. Love the wood desk. So my friend the cat is out of the bag so to speak. Your sitting at Starbucks while e-mailing me drinking some chocolate foamy sugar loaded thingy. That is how you can work, take care of your family and read so many books. Surely you must have more then one book shelve in your home??? Take care,

  6. Oh Steve, I WISH I had a whole room full of bookshelves!! They'd be full for sure! And no, I have one. The hubby has one too, and I think the Dune books are there, and my Tolkien collection. But otherwise, I have this shelf, and that's it. The books are double-stacked, and I have boxes in the guest room for the books I'm giving away (*sniffle*)...


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
