Something To Show For It...

Welcome to my office. It looks about the same overall, but we have been doing some art swappery and I am now debating sticking this loveseat on Craigslist. My dad has offered me an elderly armchair that he doesn't feel like having reupholstered. I would just cover it with blankets etc. for now but it is one of the comfy chairs that I grew up with so it is highly tempting. Also, see the door there? The loveseat is a bit big for this room...



And I finally found a spot for my kingfisher print! The buffalo needed a little company.


This may be the only vignette in my entire house. The buffalo has lived on top of the bookshelf since I was very little, my great-grandfather made it and for years it stood up there alone. I feel like it is a little more homey now that he has some company.


This is the current quandary. I like the lamp base, my dad made it for me (well, he had the ceramic cylinder made and then he wired it and put the base on. The only thing is, the lampshade is terrible (in my eyes). I am thinking that when there is a little more room in that corner after I replace the loveseat with a chair that is two feet narrower, I can get a nice cylindrical drum shade for it so it looks a little more modern. Although probably not one of those, something on the same lines but not so overpriced.


So that's where things are right now. And no, I am not posting a picture of my desk right now. But the loveseat is getting vacuumed and put on Craigslist this weekend!

Thanks TFD! The buffalo was made by my great-grandfather, someday I will do a sculpture roundup of all the stuff I have of his.
