PAD: Writing Room

Daily Prompt: A genie has granted your wish to build your perfect space for reading and writing. What’s it like?

My room is for reading, because I love to read – not so much with the writing!

My room is full of books, floor to ceiling and the ceiling is so high I have one of those rolling ladders!

The room isn’t a square or rectangle, it has alcoves and smaller “rooms” within the big room.

There are couches and lounges and over-stuffed chairs, side tables with lamps, large desks with ornate lamps, chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings.

There are floor cushions and pillows, luscious floor rugs, places to lay down, places to prop on the pillows, places to sit and read anything I want!

Confession: I Don’t Like Burlap

I must be the only one.  I see the burlap obsession everywhere.  Its online at almost every blog I read (which is 50+), everyone is doing some sort of burlap project.

I think that burlap smells bad.  It looks dirty.  I feel like it belongs in a barn.  And if you make it into an accessory, isn’t it itchy?

Yet everyone loves the stuff.  I am confused why it is so trendy.

Is it because of projects like this?  Because I could make that with something else!
