Scene of the Blog Featuring Melissa of Jayne's Books!

I trailed this week's featured book blogger to her lair from a comment she left on another blog. Melissa of Jayne's Books is a library tech, a self-professed Starbucks addict, and a Canucks fan (that's hockey to you uninitiated).

As I wandered through her posts, I discovered that we're both the same Austen heroine and that I enjoy the mix of books that she reads. (No, she isn't a crime fiction fan, but I'm not about to hold that against her!) She also admits to sometimes being unable to put her feelings about a book she's just read into words. I think we've all struggled with that, haven't we?

And before you think that Melissa hijacked a blog from someone named Jayne, think again. Jayne is her middle name, and in a moment of serendipity, she chose it for her blog name. If you haven't visited Jayne's Books before, I hope you'll take this opportunity to do so. Don't be shy-- say hello while you're there!

If you're visiting from Melissa's blog-- Welcome! I'm glad you stopped by to take a look at Melissa's creative spaces. If you'd like to see any of the photos in a larger size, all you have to do is click on them, and they'll open in a new window. If you'd like to see the blogging spaces of previous participants, all you have to do is click on the Scene of the Blog tab at the very top of my blog header. You'll find two ways to search: by Blog Name or by Location. Let's go visit Melissa, shall we?

Melissa the Mobile Blogger

I don't normally blog from a desk, but usually on my laptop from the comforts of a couch in my living room as I watch something on my TV.  It can be a sporting event (usually hockey) or a TV show or watching the news.   I sometimes do my blogging from the comforts of my bed, but I generally keep my bedroom for reading and sleeping.

Melissa's view

This second photo is of the view out of my main living window. From it I can view the comings and goings of the people that live in the neighbourhood and see the changes throughout the course of a day as well as the changing seasons.

I like the table that your laptop is sitting on, Melissa-- and are you using a small bookcase as an end table? What a wonderful idea! I also like the view of the sky and trees that you have. It would indeed be a good spot to watch the ebb and flow of both people and nature.

Thanks so much for allowing us this glimpse into your home, Melissa. We really appreciate it!

Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday when I'll be featuring the creative spaces of yet another book blogger in our worldwide community!


  1. I like that desk too. Pine, isn't it? Very sleek. And I second the idea of using the bookcase as an end table. We book people can figure out the most ingenious ways to get include our book storage around a house. LOL

    1. Actually its a coffee table. I believe its pine; got it from Ikea a number of years ago.

  2. I'm going to check out Melissa's blog now. She does have a great view.

  3. I love your stalkey stuff! Oh, I probably spelled that wrong but you know what I mean.

  4. What a great way to keep up on what's going on in your neighbourhood!

  5. The stuffies that are surrounding the lamp are from the 2010 Olympic & Paraolympic games in Vancouver.


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