This Blog Is Coming To You From ...

... my computer room.

The filing cabinets on the left are where I keep all the important stuff... car insurance, house insurance, income tax returns etc. Over there on shelf on the right are all my Family History binders. The cabinets on the right hold yarn, knitting needles, glue gun, ink, pens, paints, all the crafty stuff. On the wall... clock in the shape of a gas meter... Retirement present!

Okay, I know it's messy, but I know where everything is. Honest!

The photos on the desk are of my parents wedding. The computer was inherited from YoungerSon when he decided to build his own. There's Spot hanging into the lamp, and there's The Space Cadet watching over me from his frame on top of the monitor, accompanied by a little silver wombat from Australia.
OOOPS there's also a used lunch plate that didn't make it as far as the dishwasher!

It all looks so very familiar because it looks so similar to our office and home computer.

If you're really working, how can you have a neat sand tidy room? At least that's what I tell myself.

Looks really organised compared to my computer area!!!!

Peter said...

I guess this is now really your "living room"! Everything within reach (except maybe some excursions to the kitchen)!

Ah=ha! So that's where you work and play at your computer!

Brian said...

That’s a clunker of a monitor, but when it’s a hand me down!
Plenty of free space behind there when the son hands down a newer job.

Ex-s
I took the raku class with Barb Elend in Queensville. ;-

Frank Baron said...

There's an underlying, but undeniable, sense of organization to your mess that I deeply, deeply envy.

Sigh.

Nice to know what the place you write from looks like. I'd show you mine, but you know what a horrible photographer I am.

Meanwhile, come back to my blog and pick up your award :-)

Steve could teach you a thing or a million about messy.

It is very nice to know your studio! Love the airplaine on the ceiling! Your room looks very agreeable and cozy!

This is one of my favorite posts of yours! I can't tell you how much I love seeing friends work space. Care for a peek at my desk? It was posted here. It's changed a bit since then, but basically the same.

Neva said...

Glad to see your place looks like mine!

tut-tut said...

hey, I'd say you're pretty darned organized, to my way of thinking . . .

Angie Ledbetter said...

If that's messy, I'm never posting a pic of my office...fondly called Sodom & Gomorrah. ;)

LCD monitors are so cheap these days and would save a lot of desk space.

Lovely light coming through those shaded windows...And, as long as you know where everything is, that is ALL that matters! It looks comfy and cozy to me, my dear!

Ginnie said...

What I most love about this, Sham, is that it looks lived in! :) THANK YOU!

Your son built his own computer? Wow and wow again.

Anyway you should see my little study, papers and pens (and cats) everywhere. Who cares!

I think you have peeked into our computer room ...but yours actually looks pretty organized. Wish ours was... Seems you have great natural lighting in there too. You know...our room has a plate now and then too. Love this.

Hilary said...

Had to laugh.. I'm looking at a plate here too. :)

Xtreme English said...

cool. mine sort of looked like that until the nasty realtor made me remove all the "clutter." hmph. what's clutter for some is priceless for others.

Ming the Merciless said...

Cool concept! Love the peek into your life.
