Hi Friends,
As I promised ... here is my office
I really don't have an office...its just a little space I've reserved for my self. I did have a whole room when we first moved into the apartment however our middle Son moved back home and now it's his space. That's okay... I would much rather have him here than all that junk I kept in there. I believe you should always leave room in your nest for the people you love. My office is now a little corner in our bedroom. I don't really need an office because I don't pay the bills or craft any more. All I do is check my email and blog. However I have always had the need for a place to set and feel good about what ever it is I am doing at the time. Let me give you a little tour.....
Here IT is
If you know me by now... I love to share where and how much I paid for the STUFF I find
The Chair came from an Estate Sale--14.00
The desk came from someones trash pile--FREE
My friend{ Dell Laptop} pawn shop--150.00 I found this medical jar at a garage sale--1.00
On the bottom of this jar it reads, in blue
April 24,1941
I love this little bird pin cushion--.25cents
My sister in-law Debbie gave me the old crystal perfume jar
it is filled with safety pins
"Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself"
My Mom gave me the Shabby Chic lamp shade
The Pins are from Second Chance Thrift Store
1.00 each

The lady pen holder came from Good Will---1.00
This crystal perfume jar is filled with paper clips

The bulletin board is a old frame that I painted and stapled cork board on the back. This board helps to remind me that I am a creative soul when I want to be. The cute green mirror was a Christmas gift from my Mom. The mirror reminds me that I am beautiful in my own eyes.

All these things came from Good Will
The angle tells me... that when there are days that I don't love myself ...
SHE does
The letter holder is from Good Will--2.00
It holds recipes,pictures,magazine articles, and bible verses.

I love surrounding my self with things that have meaning and remind me of who I am.
Of course I love hand bags

The pink waste paper basket came form Good Will--1.00
Yes, even your trash should look pretty while its still in your home

I usually have tea in my cup or a strong cup of coffee
Scratch paper for my crazy ideas
I once read somewhere that
" The best way to have a good idea is have lots of ideas."
And of course I must have my phone at my side
Pink Razor {second hand}--50.00
I still haven't decided which photo to put in this beautiful frame
I keep this glitter jar within my view because it reminds me that even the ugliest things in life can be glittered and made beautiful again.

The old cash boxes hold greeting cards given to me from my family
I also love old black and white photos of my family
This picture is of Me and my little sister Anna
This old sewing draw came from Grandma Klesel's store

I love anything that looks like Diamonds

This little oak cabinet came from Grandpa Klesel, it houses CDs and camera stuff

Aunt Joy sent homemade cookies to me in this tin years ago and I haven't had the heart to return it.
It houses my sewing supplies
This litter is from our youngest Son. He gave it to me after his 8th grade graduation, it is really funny because he was and still is a very good and sweet young man. However he is saying he is sorry for being a bad boy and upsetting me. He goes on to say Thank You for being great parents and always being there for him. He even printed it on rose paper just for me. Later I learned it was a "SUCK UP" letter because He wanted to go to the 8th grade after party and he knew I would say NO

However after reading this letter I felt so bad for being so hard on him all these {12} years that I said "Yes , you can go to the party "
I should have known better after all he is my third Son and this wasn't my first "SUCK UP ATTEMPT"
Just in case my Sons are reading this:
Yes This Still Works
Bear Hugs
Kisses on the check
Cards and Letters
Any way I keep this letter just in case I don't get any more like it
Well that's my office...What does your office say about you
Or what does it say TO you
In His Arms,
