Okay … so … this is Jeanne. And I am pretty sure I’ve mentioned that we live in a Cottage in town.
And by Cottage … I mean … on the free market it would be referred to as “cozy” and “quaint” …
It’s a wonderfully full home to a family of four including two littles (who take up more space than I can fully express or appreciate)…
and two dogs (who believe the house actually belongs to them).
And everyone has their own space in the house.
The littles have their room and a playroom (see above).
The dogs have the entire floor … and Hitcher has taken over a leather chair in the living room (thank goodness it’s leather …how else could we keep it clean?! )
And the Cowboy has turned our unfinished basement into a bit of man-cave (but it’s not in my prerogative to take a photo of his intensely manly environ.
Which leaves little space for this mom-blogger (outside of the kitchen … which belongs to EVERYONE).
So I scoped out a corner of our bedroom and have been looking for a desk.
And just haven’t found one that I love … or that fits into this miniature space.
Which brings me to my friend Suzy (who I’ve mentioned on occasion … we board our horses on her property outside of town, and she’s my Mad-Gal connection). Suzy is cooler than cool. And a maker of beautiful furniture and cabinetry.
I guess maybe I mentioned my struggle to find a desk to Suzy … and without batting and eye she offered to help me MAKE one! What? Make it? The exact desk I want and need? That will actually fit in the corner?
So we’re going to do it.
