~Where Bloggers Create 2013~

Well I'm back from a wonderful family vacation and just in time for Karen's annual "Where Bloggers Create" party.  I wasn't going to join in this year since my office hasn't changed much from last year, but she assured me that many of you didn't know about the party or weren't even blogging yet, so here it is.  Enjoy ! xoxo K.

I'm still loving my white and chippy drawers and just recently added this great cart to store my wrapping and craft paper.

My crib springs inspiration board still holds mail and bills that need to be paid along with some bird prints.  This is where I sit while on the computer.

I added a new petite crystal chandelier behind my oversized leather chair and got a new small sized chippy white table which fits perfectly between my desk and chair.

Haven't changed much on the shelves lately and have made a few small changes to this table in the corner where my daughter's still like to type notes on the typewriter:-)

Hope you enjoyed the tour and make sure you hop on over to Karen's blog where you can find much more inspiration.  Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Oh Kathleen, what a beautiful space. I've only been blogging about 9 months. I've been following you for awhile, but this is the first time I've seen this room. I especially love the cart with your wrapping papers, but every detail is just gorgeous. I'm glad you decided to join the party today!

  2. I could spend ages sitting at that beautiful wooden table and type notes on that lovely old typewriter. And then spend even longer sinking into that amazing leather chair. It is a beautiful room.

  46. Hello Kathleen - really don't know why I haven't visited here before but finally here I am. I am really taken with you earthy/shabby chic style which has a homely feel to it. Especially love your typewriter (much like my own!),
    your set of little drawers, that inspiration board which has to be unique and lovely bookshelves so understated.
    You might like to visit and enter into my Giveaway of a lacey collage, vintage cuff, vintage linen and a vintage photo.
    Thank you for deciding to enter the party this time as I'm feeling quite at home here!

  47. What a great space, Kathleen! I love your chippy drawers and I am inspired to paint the wood one I have in my space white within the next couple of weeks. That's what I did after last year's party and painted the two tables in my room.

  56. Kathleen this has to be my all time very favorite CREATING SPACE to date. and my "gotta have one" piece in your photos is the BASKET W CASTERS..the wonderfully imperfect contract just grabs me.oh well that's just ME!
    May I bring a big 1,000 page book to read and plant myself in that space until finished??
