We have a move into NYC date of June/July.
Because if you have to do one of the most hated of domestic duties – moving – why shouldn’t you do it when NYC is at it’s muggy, smells like urine & sweaty, soupy best?
And by’ ‘you” I’ of course, mean us.
Still, I am extremely excited about it!
So, as you do, we are getting the current space ready for selling. The latest jusshing involved the living room space. The old space was cozy and comfy.
The new space feels more open and sparse. It does however, now include a perfect spot for me to sit and work with everything I need right at my fingertips without looking all business in the middle of the living room.
Really pleased with how it came together and just need a lumbar pillow to put behind my back for total, hours of writing/creating comfort.
The secretary desk to vanity project actually became my office in a living(room) landscape project and honestly? No regrets!
My ever-clever husband replaced the worn top with a new piece of oak and he routed the edges all pretty and added the handle I picked out.
And yes, I had to go and use a non-traditional placement of the new handle…
I am loving my new, Office in a Living(Room) Landscape!
Have you got your Moogly on?
If not, you are surely missing out on something special. More precise, someone special.
Tamara Kelly is the woman behind the needles, hooks and yarns and she is a genius. Seriously.
She can take your ideas and work them into reality like a crafty, yarn sorcerous.
I recently commissioned Tamara to make a couple quart sized mason jar cozies for me. I had bought a pair of cuppow lids and needed to insulate my warm beverages and catch the condensation from my cold beverages.
What’s a cuppow? They are brilliant! They turn a wide mouth mason jar into a hot or cold reusable travel mug. BPA free and 100 recyclable with minimum recycled packaging and made in Massachusetts.
I decided on a wooly Union Jack in vintage colors of wool and one in happy colors of cotton. After a few back and forth messages to pick my yarn colors here’s what arrived in my post box.
How gorgeous are they?!? They are complete with bottoms so that I don’t have to worry about coasters and the cotton one absorbs the condensation so no slippery slope to be had or drips down my shirts.
These pics are taken on the tray table beside the chair I do most of my work in. And yes, that is a cupcake wrapper. What?!?! Do you not eat cupcakes for breakfast? Lovely, homemade, chocolate, buttermilk cupcakes with light, frothy frosting?
You don’t? Poor you…
