Right now flooding is a very serious threat where Marie lives, and she's been keeping us updated on that, but there's also an eclectic mix of books and a craft or two as well so we can all become better acquainted with this book blogger.
If you've never visited Daisy's Book Journal, I certainly hope you take this opportunity to do so. Check out all the content, and say hello to Marie while you're there. You'll be glad you did!
I thought I'd stick in my usual note about the photos. If you'd like to see any of them in a larger size, all you have to do is click on them. They'll open in a new window so you won't lose your place here. Now let's see Marie's creative spaces!
|Marie's desk area|
This is where I do all of my blogging. I just cleaned up the desk a few days ago and purposely didn't straighten it up before taking the photo, since this is normally how it looks. The books are to-be-reviewed books as well as books recently acquired either in the mail or by purchase. The only thing that's missing is my camera, which normally sits on the corner of the desk within easy reach.My favourite item by far in this photo is my desk chair. Of course, I couldn't blog without my computer, but it just wouldn't be the same without my beloved old wooden chair. I've had it going on 30 years. My husband has offered to buy me a new modern office one that's padded several times because he doesn't believe this one is comfortable. But it's truly the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. It's the perfect shape and height for me. I may go through many computers in the coming years, but I'll never give up my chair.
|Marie's favorite reading chair|
This is a favourite reading place. Right now, I can't show you it in its natural environment because we are renovating the living room (hence the wood behind the chair, the bare wall outlet and partially painted wall behind it that needs three more coats.) It currently gets pushed into various corners, so it's not in the way. Besides being in the wrong place and without its side table, it mostly looks like it always does...with my fuzzy reading wrap, current read and pen and paper for taking notes.
|A bookcase for review books|
This particular shelf is for review books, recent purchases and other books I'd like to get to sooner rather than later. I have several more bookcases with books I'd love to read one day. Too many books, too little time.
|One of Marie's favorite reading spots|
I love reading in the tub. It's best for paperbacks, though. I usually just read one book at a time, but if my current read is a hardcover and I feel like taking a long relaxing bath to read, I'll pick up a paperback to start in the tub.
Wow-- that definitely is a tub to relax in! I can see why it's a favorite reading spot. A few years ago I bought a gift for a dear friend who loves to read and soak in her tub. It's a frame that sits across the tub, and (among other things) it holds a book at the perfect reading angle and a glass of wine well within reach. Very decadent!
I can see why Marie usually has her camera on her desk-- she's got two wonderful windows there to look out of. I love how her entire house is filled with light.
Thank you for letting us have this glimpse into your home and your creative spaces, Marie. We certainly appreciate it!
Stop by next Wednesday to see the creative spaces of yet another member of our book blogging community!
