For once I remember exactly where I crossed paths with a featured blogger! I found Cheryl and her blog, Tales of the Marvelous, through our participation in the Saturday Snapshot meme at At Home With Books. After I checked out her photos, I went on to see what I could see-- and I liked the range of posts and the enthusiasm that I found. If you've never met Cheryl or visited her blog, Tales of the Marvelous, please take the opportunity to go over and say hello. You'll be glad you did!
If you're visiting from Cheryl's blog-- Welcome! I'm glad you came over to take a look at Cheryl's creative spaces. If you'd like to see any of the photos in larger sizes, all you have to do is click on them and they'll open in new windows. If the photo is one of books on shelves, I always try to leave the photo large enough for you to read spines, but lately Blogger seems to be arguing with me about that. Oh well! If you'd like to see the spaces of previous participants, click on the Scene of the Blog tab at the very top of my header. You have two ways to search: by Blog Name or by Location. Now... let's go see Cheryl's place!
|Cheryl's favorite corner of the couch|
I never had a desk growing up, so somehow I never got into the idea of using them--even when I had one for two years in college. Now I like to curl up with my laptop or a (paper) notebook in my favorite corner of the couch.
|The view from the couch!|
This is part of the view from my seat on the couch--good inspiration in all those words! I have another big bookcase elsewhere, so this is about two-thirds of my book collection. Also two-thirds of my knickknack collection, most of which have their own stories too. The quote on the picture up there is from my favorite song, "A Piece of Sky."
|Writing at the park|
When the weather is nice and my schedule is convenient and the planets align :) I get out of the house and go to the park to write. It's always lovely...though sometimes the ducks can be quite distracting!
Cheryl, I had to take a look at the picture above the bookcase, and I love that quote: "With all there is why settle for just a piece of sky?" (I also love the bookcases!) That couch definitely looks comfy, and... how did you know that my favorite flowers are daffodils???
I love to read and write outdoors, too. Yes, the wildlife can be distracting, but in another way, they help loosen up my mind and make it more open to inspiration-- if I'm writing, that is. If I'm reading, I'm just plain flat not getting any reading done!
Thank you so much for allowing us this glimpse into your personal spaces. We certainly appreciate it!
Don't forget to stop by next week when I'll be featuring yet another book blogger from our worldwide community!
