A Tidy Place to Sit

Just when I think that the sight of another box is going to send me right over the edge, I take a look at this little corner of my family room.


Ahhhhhh...A wee bit of order amidst the chaos. Its the perfect spot for my coffee and a bit of quiet time.

The table was a $25 find at the fleatique store. It is the perfect height and size for this little corner. I thought I was going to paint it until I got it home and realized how much I liked it with my painted black chairs.

I can look out the window and see this.



Unfortunately, I can also see this. Hello, Mr. John! But that's only temporary.



It's the perfect place to sit and do this.



It makes me happy.

What a view!!! That would be my daily Bible reading and meditating spot for sure. When we bought this house that was the first spot I was looking for. It looks like you may be out in the country. It's beautiful.

HeathahLee said...

I love it! Very peaceful looking. I'd like the bay window in my kitchen to be a peaceful sitting area one of these days, but that won't be until we can tile in here, and fix the windows, and paint the cabinets...sigh...I'm gonna go take a nap.

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

AHH - we all need at least one perfectly cozy spot in our home. I know you will make many more.
