A Spot of One's Own

By now, you must have figured out that my home is my haven.
I'm a firm believer that every mother needs a spot within her home where
she can create, be peaceful,
and enjoy being alone with her thoughts
(if you're a mom, you know how few moments we have
for such pursuits!)

This is my spot ... a salvaged armoir, which I painted white
and converted into a computer nook.
It sits in my dining room, thus making a room which would see
relatively little use very useful!
On top are two antique finials, a print my brother brought me home from PARIS,
and my great grandmother's crystal.
The doily was hand made by my great aunt.

I love this topiary, and of course the rose mache mirror from - where else-
WINNERS. I heart Winners.
The lovely nesting baskets on the floor were a steel - $3.00 each!
Needless to say, I grabbed a car-full.

Here's another shot of the top of my armoir ... this time
complete with a parking ticket :)
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh Sarah, I just LOVE it!!! I love this corner of your lovely home. I am so enjoying each and every corner or your sweet, sweet home. As I said before, I knew it would be nice, being yours. I look forward to more posts.

    Blessings and Hugs too, Deanna

  2. Oh, Thank you, Deanna! I feel the same way about your lovely home! I used to get the biggest chuckle when you said people wandered into your house thinking it was a store ... now I see why - it's so full of lovely things!


  3. I love finials. I have a fleur de lis one in my front hall. Wrought iron and rusty. I love Winners too. I miss them...dearly.
