a writing desk

I’ve been inspired by so many beautiful blogs to create my own special place to correspond with others. 

I cleaned off the desk in my craft room and started gathering pretty things from around the house. 

A lovely blue letter holder and a misfit piece of stemware...

Add to that a chippy bird candle holder, a dollar tree rose painted jar, a piece of aqua pyrex and a magnetic dry erase board...

Now, whether it’s a handwritten note, a handmade card or even a quick email, taking the time to sit and string kind words together is such an enjoyable experience. 

What about you, do you have a little space to call your own?

It is so easy to be an encourager when you’re surrounded by such pretty things.  

Don’t you agree?


  1. Such a lovely space indeed! I really wish I had a little desk for crafting and writing but there's no room the way things are right now. My space is a loveseat in the tv room where I keep my mini HP, a lap pad from Ikea that has a hard service where I can blog and use it for writing and a bit of crafting too. No one else sits here but me. :) But I will find a way, somehow to have a desk one of these days. ENCOURAGEMENT IS OXYGEN TO THE SOUL! Have a wonderful Wednesday! Tammy

  2. Such a lovely pretty place for your special time....I think it is so important no matter how small it may be to have somewhere to spend a few quiet moments in the day...

  3. Good for you for putting yourself on the list. Enjoy your private sanctuary.
    Love the photo on your header.

  4. It's charming! I'm blessed to have a home office and find it to be a sanctuary whenever I close the doors.

  5. Sadly I don't have a space of my own with three older daughters in school they have all desk space but I love yours. The colors would inspire me for sure.

  6. Your special space is beautiful!! I hope to have my own space one day!

  7. Pretty space to create...very nice!

  8. You've created a lovely space for yourself! I wouldn't show anyone mine at the moment :)

  9. Very pretty! I love your header photo.

  10. yes, I have a place I call my own to do such things and I've gotten a few ideas from you to add to my space such as your magnetic board..

  11. Your special little space is very charming.
