A New Place To Create...

Since before moving into our new house, I have dreamt of having a room/place to create.  Well, the room isn't possible at this point, but I now have this exquisite secretary that I call my creativity center...

 

As you can see, my lovely new secretary has lots of little nooks and crannies, and shelves to place all kinds of inspirational items, such as photos, ribbons, buttons, pictures, eggs, stamps, books..., and I don't know if you can tell, but its painted in a soft golden color, with beautifully painted scrollwork..., I'm not exaggerating when I tell you, it actually seems to "glow"... invitingly...  Just looking at it makes me want to sit there and do something lovely like a pen and ink drawing, write a note to  someone I love, or write a post to this blog..., I just love it!

As you can see by the photo above..., we are still finding places for artwork, and unpacking boxes - moving is a lengthy process!  But today, we got the secretary moved into a quiet corner in the bedroom... now I am ready to move again, only this time its much easier and enjoyable..., I am moving into my "creativity center."

I will enjoy filling it with my favorite, inspiring things, and then sharing it with you:)

What about you?  Do you have a special place to create?

Ah, a "room of one's own" embodied in a gorgeous piece of functional art. How wonderful! Virginia Wolfe said 80 years ago that this “room of one’s own” (in an essay by the same title) is symbolic of a creative field where “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction” and that a woman has a need for personal liberty to create art and to employe her poetic license to do so.
