I’ve got a lot of catching up to do, blogging and otherwise … I don’t think I ever did share a few ‘new’ additions to the study nook/dining area. Study nook – ha – sounds good – but that’s really stretching the truth – a lot. It is true that this is where the teenager spends much of his time on the computer. Alas, I don’t think he’s doing much study, unless of course he’s majoring in computer gaming.
Firstly, is the little black and white ‘french’ desk I picked up at the local antique/collectibles centre. Perfect fit, I like. Next, harder to see, is the wooden horse head to the left. Not something I would have imagined hanging on my wall, but I absolutely love it. I found it my Dad’s shed, during their recent move. It was made by my Dad’s Uncle Wayne, who died as a teenager, when he was a boy growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Apparently my Dad had it hanging on his bedroom wall as a kid. It is so familiar to me, and is so special now that I know it’s history. It belongs.
Finally, is the blue bench – I can’t resist anything that colour – to the right. Not that it’s in that spot anymore. It moves around a bit.
In other news, I am totally intoxicated by the scent of gardenias. Is there anything as divine?
And am listening to Sarah Jarosz‘s new album Follow me Down again and again … only 19 years old!
