I am launching this Saturday a series called "Her Personal Space . . . at Home With (Blogger friend's name)." I am sooooo excited!!! I've asked a number of my fellow bloggers to participate and the best news yet: They said yes! I asked that they send me a photo of themselves nestled in their favorite place -- at home. My burning question for each: "Where do you go to escape the 'noise,' to read a book, to relax? I think we may be seeing everything from gardens to laundry rooms.
Please drop by this weekend for my first guests' appearances.
On Saturday, Vicky at Room Service -- Decorating 101 shares her "personal and very favorite spot." And on Sunday, I will show you where Greet at Belgian Pearls likes to retreat for quiet -- or to entertain.
In the meantime, here's my chosen spot -- in my cozy home on Galveston Island:
Sam likes to jump up and join me. I love gazing out the window, admiring the garden (or thinking about how someday I should go do some weeding) or gawking at clueless passsers-by. More often than not, I have a stack of magazines at my side. Jimmy, my husband, is typically in an adjoining area watching golf or something on TV. (This is an aside, but get a look at my boots! The green soles sold me!)
This is where I go in Colorado: It's a bed on my front porch!! I told my husband one day that instead of just rocking (yep, we have a line of rocking chairs), I wanted to bring on deck this black frame daybed and dress it up in pillows and bolsters we happened to have (left over from a previous home/guest bedroom):
Very comfy, I tell ya. The views aren't bad either. Behind me is a view of Salida, located in the valley. When I look out the other way, my eyes land on the Rockies. As you notice, I've got a thick Brahms Mount cotton throw to warm me from morning and evening chill.
Another visitor whose company I enjoy:
Hope to see you here this weekend! It's gonna be fun! At that time, I tell you who else who be showing their personal, favorite places -- at home. Hopefully, they'll be images you haven't seen . . . . See ya!
