As you can see I have cozied in and just love the digs... Here's the tour of the desk area.
The desk it's self was "HAND MADE" by Maria's Grandfather!
It's a beauty.
Because they don't have alot of room in their new home....It and alot of her other stuff stayed .
(Bonus ! )
So for the start of our tour... we'll start with the top part of the desk
Maria had a whole Zen theme going on ... so when I found the oriental candle holder on the far left I nabbed it..( I think I paid like $1.75!) ... Next we have two pair of glasses.. one for distance and one for up close.. Meh.. it comes with old age..
Next another Target clearance bargain... As I have mentioned HERE .
Maria had a Buddha thing going on... so I couldn't pass this object de art.... again a steal at around $ 6.95!..
Of course our little Bettha friend "Charlie Gibson" has found a new home.
I am happy to report he is doing well.. Next a funky little touch lamp..and last by certainly not least every menopausal woman's best friend.. the personal fan.The mish mash of items are...
A few birthday cards on top of some photo albums.. a package that I have to send to my son.. Maria's old I Pod and stand ( SCORE !) the phone.. A plate (sans english muffin) a cup of Timmy's and the pinnacle and purpose of this room...I haven't' discussed it yet but I think it's time to introduce you to the newest member of the family..
My new Notebook....
* Let us all pause for a moment of silence please.
I hadn't mentioned it before because ... well.. I am a little embarrassed with the all the gifts I got for my 50th.
This little beauty was purchased with funds from my birthday... and to be honest.... I feel so spoiled... but I also have to admit.. I LOVE IT !!! and have finally come to grips with the need to acknowledge my new baby.
The opposite side of the room holds what is quickly becoming my new favorite spot.. Maria's old day bed.
The New Mirror.. a cool bowed frame ( That I am hoping to fill with cool close ups of my family) as well as Maria's old Funky Ikea lamp. Actually everything (except the mirror) are all castoffs that my dear daughter left behind... Fortunately I am reaping the benefits.
Across the way.. this GIANT screen T.V.... NOT!!!!
I get teased about this tiny little dinosaur alot ...but you know what ...I don't care.. That's how much a T.V. means to me.. So there you have it.. the "Inside" part of the tour of where I spend alot of my time.
This morning I made an early morning trip to the airport with Mr R.. and the predawn sky was just magnificent! ... I of course did not have my camera with me... and by the time I got home the sun was out.... Still beautiful..but WOW!.. There is NOTHING like a predawn sky!
All this in addition to the unseasonably cool day is making for an amazing morning.
In fact for a good portion of the week.. it is going to be heavenly...
Just for the fun of it...a little glimpse outside the window of the " Girl Cave" on this wonderful morning.
Now if I could find a way to have you HEAR this little guy and his friends... You too would be as content as I am.
Have a GREAT day where ever you are.
