My Creative Corner - A Vintage Style Desk and Work Space

 Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
I know the posts have been a bit longer between this Spring.
I miss talking with you all, but things are good here.
Lots of kid stuff, homeschool, traveling and gardening.
 It has been a bit since I focused on my library table turned desk.

I have made a few changes in this corner.... so today we will take a closer look. 

First off I hung most of my vintage bridal photos on my antique trellises.  I just used the tiny clothes pins and twine.  They wont be damaged this way and it make they eye level and easy to enjoy.
I switched out my bench for this linen covered chair.
We have been working longer at the desk with home school and it is very comfortable.
You need that after a long test or two! 
 I am glad my desk is super deep, so I can have my displays and still have room to work.
 Lots of neutrals with touches of pinks...
 And a few crystals of course....
 It is hard to get a good picture... lots to see!
 Sweet birdhouses and touches of burlap too....
 And old books and birds....
 I love my layers!
 A sweet little votive....and more little pretties.
And a houseplant of course....
Yes, every day we use this area... it is a working desk... but that does not mean it can't be pretty too!
Thanks so much for stopping by....Brooke
