Master Makeover Continued…


it’s a writing desk,

this gracefully arched,

scrolled iron and warm wood piece,

which sits in a corner of our master bedroom.

But I use my portable,

Correspondence Carrier,

for writing letters.

(It’s actually, an old garden center crate, go figure?)

So, I thought it would be wonderful,

to transform this piece,

into an inspiration desk.

A place, to get lost, in my favorite

decor books and magazines.

I started,

by pulling together what I love,

what inspire me…

family ~  a photograph

color ~  what is it about this blue

I am so crazy about?

Music  ~ a family tradition,

that began in my childhood,

& some pretty tools for


my favorite pencils

for marking,

and a tiny bouquet,

that plays right into

my passion for gardening.

There is something so sweet,

about, Lily of the Valley, non?

And other pretties.

As for the books,

I found this inexpensive gray basket,

(World Market)

with a wonderful, raw fabric lining,

to hold my inspiration books of the moment.

Love the gray & texture.

Surrounded by so many

‘of my favorite things’

how can I not be inspired?

Do you have an inspiration desk?

Would love to know.

One last thing,


Do you love the fluted glass,

French milk cups?

I’ll have more about that later.

And, every inspiration desk,

needs a great chair, right?

Another project,

with a French Flair,

to share,
