What I did on my break…
I rarely leave home without my black framed glasses and day planner.
Two special paperweights.
My space to create was in a corner of J’s lodge, on the lower level, until last Spring when I purchased a new computer. I thought about making my new space in the bonus room/studio on the upper level.
In the end, I decided I wanted my desk in the bay window of the master bedroom.

Easter weekend, I corralled a kid or two to bring a small harvest table up from the lodge. Eldest daughter set up my new computer. That was as far as I got in organizing the bay window into a space to create, until this week.
Whether it is approaching Fall or something else, I’ve had an urge to do a bit of nesting the last week or two.
I moved the desk over a couple of feet, from where it was centered on the bay, added a lamp, leftover from the condo master bedroom redo, brought a small trunk in and an oak split basket for magazines. The basket was made by a Missouri artisan, several years ago. The trunk and basket are good pieces for storage and they help hide cords and cables.
After adding a few accessories and necessities, the space is complete
I bought the small footstool at an old Welcome Home store, to use in our truck, for my feet, when I had a foot injury, about 5 years ago.
When my foot healed I re-covered the stool in burlap for use at my desk.
