I Have Some Exciting News to Share . . .

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!

I think you couldn't pull me away from that view in Colorado. Not even in the dead of winter. I a was going to mention 'them' fabulous boots. :)

Looking forward to this series! Brilliant!

This is going to be fun! I love seeing how other women find personal spaces to relax in.

I would never ever leave that Colorado spot on that porch with that view. How great to have a place like that to enjoy and just kick back. Looking forward to this series.
