The "Write" Stuff
Everybody needs a little spot that they can call their own, don't you think? Well, this is mine! Up until two years ago my little "spot" was at the edge of our dining room table! It worked out fine but I really wanted something that was more permament. Well, several years ago I was blessed with this little desk and it is just for ME:o) It is where I love to do my correspondence and other such paperwork. It also serves as a special place to keep some "treasures" that were given to me by my dear children. As I sit at the desk I can gaze upon the pictures and "treasures" and they just give me great joy because they remind me of my children. As you know I collect bears and all of the bears that you see on the desk were given to me by my sweet son. To the right I have a homespun candle that has the yummiest fragrance and to the left is a Precious Moments cup given to me by Miss Bonnie. It is not only pretty but it is also useful because that is where I keep my pens and pencils. It even has my name on it ~ thanks, Miss Bonnie:o)
As most of you know I am a huge fan of Jane Austen. I wanted to share with you my favorite stationery which is called The Jane Austen Missives. I just love the feel of the paper because it is nice and heavy, somewhat like I imagine it would be back in the day. On each letter there is a different quote from Miss Austen. I love that. If you notice on the packaging there are wax seals~ something else I love to use! So much fun!
Here is just one example ~ you need to enlarge to be able to read the quote. Her quotes always make me smile!
One of my favorite painters is Thomas Kinkade, who is known as the "painter of light." I'm sure most of you are familiar with his work. This address book was given to me as a gift and I just love the picture that he did. Doesn't it look like somewhere you would just love to live?
All this talk of letter writing has made me want to go and write one! I think I'm going to do just that! Is there someone you would like to write a letter to today:o)
