This one shows the rest of the desk alcove, with my bulletin board above the computer. It is an ever-changing board, with photos, letters, cartoons, post-cards, etc. being hung up and taken down almost daily. The next photo shows the start of the western side of the room; more shelves and another table, used to display containers, silk bouquets and a gazebo (which is used to receive gifts in envelopes at receptions). Hanging on the wall to the left is a caricature of me, drawn by our local newspaper cartoonist, Dwane Powell. If it doesn't show up well in the enlargement, I might photograph it and post it later.
The third photo shows my ribbon collection (about 2/3 of it). Some is used for weddings, some for gift-wrapping and some for balloons. The floor fan is necessary in the summer because this room is the farthest from the air conditioner, and gets way too warm without a fan. In the winter, I keep a small heater under the desk, to keep my tootsies warm. Behind the fan, and all along the northern side of the room, is my laundry area. It is nice having it in the same room where I work and have the computer. I can kill two - maybe three- birds with one stone! This room doesn't look too bad in the pics, but it needs painting badly. It is in the same condition it was when we moved here 25 yeas ago. I always thought I would get around to painting it, but as I added shelves, tables, cabinets and computer stuff, the idea to decorate got shoved farther into the future. Can you imagine moving all this stuff out so it can be painted? No, I didn't think so......LOL. Do I have any volunteers? The line forms in the comments!!
