Kate of Centsational Girl is hosting a “Where Do You Blog?” party. I thought that it would be fun to join in the fun.
I blog in a small bedroom that serves as our home office. This room is kind of a catch-all room. It houses our computer, Mr. SP’s desk, two file cabinets, a display cabinet, a dresser, and quite a few musical instruments. I wonder how many hours I’ve spent in this room blogging or doing work for school? Probably more than I’d care to admit.
I really can’t believe that I’m showing you this space. It’s certainly not the prettiest room in our house but it serves its purpose.
This is where I blog!
Mr. SP made our computer desk. It stays piled with “stuff” despite my efforts to clear it. The flag over the desk has been in my family for years. I had it framed for Mr. SP for Christmas one year. The sword to the right was my dad’s from his cadet days at VPI. Hanging to the left are a few Civil War things. You can’t see any detail in the photo, but the picture hanging under the light is an aerial view of my grandmother’s farm. Mr. SP flew the plane and I took the photo.
This wall will one day be lined with shelves and cabinets. For now it just is a hodge-podge. The cabinet is nothing special, but it was in my grandmother’s kitchen, so it has sentimental value to me. The horns over the cabinet are from the store in Vinton, VA that my great aunt and uncle operated. This piece was in our basement when I was growing up and was used for hanging our farm jackets. Mama let me have it after my dad died because she never liked it. Mr. SP keeps his banjos and guitars in this room and he jams in here, too.
This is Mr. SP’s desk that he rarely uses.
My clothes won’t fit into my one tiny closet and one dresser that is in our bedroom, so the overflow clothes stay in this room. My grandfather had this dresser made for me using Cherry from the family farm. I am not crazy about the picture hanging over the dresser, but the man in it reminds me of one of my favorite uncles, so I just can’t take it down.
And there you have it. This is where I blog and spend many enjoyable hours getting inspiration from other blogs. I’m excited to see where you blog. Thanks to Kate for hosting the party.
