I'm linking up with "Reality Shot Thursday" with Claudia at http://mockingbirdhillcottage.blogspot.com/. She had this great idea that we should just take a picture of something in our home as it really is ... no staging, no fixing up ... just life at home as it really is.
Recently I got my guest room ready for my sister and her husband to visit and I thought it looked pretty inviting.
But when company is not here it seems to be a place where I "tentatively" put things while I'm finding a home for them or while I'm in the process of doing something with them. Now I'm getting ready to go on vacation to the east coast and Bermuda with my husband and I hate packing! So I start early laying things out that I may want to take so I can visualize how much stuff I've got to carry. So here is my guest room now ... and I know it's going to get worse before it gets better!
And that's only half of it. My husband works at home so he has a room of his own for an office; since he's on the phone a lot I found it difficult to work in the same room (to say nothing of thinking) so I took the other half of the guest room for my little office area. That too, has it ideal look and its everyday look. Think I'll show that one next week ...
