Over on Autumn Living (a great blog!) she posed the question. "Do you have a special place?" One where one can recharge, be left alone, do what one wants, etc. And I do! This room is my haven, it used to be my oldest daughter's bedroom but when she grew up and got her first apartment, the design was drawn up, the paint cans came out, and I started work.I knew exactly what I wanted: A room where I could do my crafts, wrap gifts, pay my bills, dink on the computer, show off my collectibles and put up all the art I had collected. We started with an all white room (walls, trim, furniture and shelves) except for my husbands vintage childhood desk that we kept it's natural wood color. I added colorful boxes that I found at Michael's to store all my craft items, pretty buckets for colored pencils and special scissors, and brought out all the toys and kitschy items that I have collected for years and never really had a place for.I hung some wonderful art that my children have created, cases with vintage baubles, my prized Checkers Pottery and one whole section holds all the lovely poems my youngest daughter has written to me over the years. I must admit it is a jumble of pattern and color and I just love it. Welcome!
