What a lovely table. In fact, what an inviting tableau that all makes. I wondered why an empty bowl, and then you provided the answer. As I'm expecting guests later this evening, I've just blitzed my kitchen table. All it holds now is a tin of orange-blossom pastilles, my spectacle case and a pen. The living-room coffee-table tells us that I've got quite a few books "in-progress", that I've no plans to watch TV tonight (guide is still turned to last night's page), that my ears got tired of my earrings, and that I'm still charmed with the SoulCollage cards I made at the weekend - because they are still sitting where I can pick them up and/or just admire them!

My table holds a heat brick on top of a tile, a torch, some metal bric-a-brac, acrylic paints, some scraps of metal, tin snips, an old metal coin bank, a candle, and odd metalsmithing/art tools. In fact, it is calling to me! I have recently learned the metalsmithing, and it is one more creative outlet for me to explore. So far, I'm loving it! :)

What an inviting and inspiring workstation! Love it. Mine is basically similar except that ufortunately I don't sit in an open doorway facing a beautiful garden and no cats are strolling by either. Instead I'm overlooking a city street with trees only in the distance, and on my desk there's the computerscreen, my camera, pens, journals (like the way you describe them as keeping you company!), also a half drunk cup of tea, photos, a small pot with an equally small agave plant (an offshoot of the big one in the living room which has been collected many years ago in Spain), a book by Günter Kunert which waits to be reviewed For an online litterature magazine, my calendar, letters and printed mails, a collection of bookmarks, my address book, a cat pottery from my friend Judy, a tiny fake cactus.... Okay, I stop, there's just a lot of stuff on my desk, but I really love it, couldn't do without it! :-)

What a lovely photo of your table.

Mine says it's time to have a clear up! I have a similar place in the conservatory with a view over the garden, originally intended for my workstation. Unfortunately the conservatory is south facing and it gets SO HOT when the sun is out so my workplace is now my breakfast bar. There's a small flat-screen TV (with DVD recorder and freeview box above on a shelf - just so I can catch up while I'm working). There are three remotes, a child's knitted sweater in progress (with pattern), an umbrella not needed in my handbag today, pen, pencil, notebook, calculator, letters to be dealt with, bank statement, Visa statement waiting to be paid, a book called "Somerset Stories of the Supernatural" half read, a small box filled with scrap paper for shopping lists, a glass of lemon juice and so it goes on. I almost forgot a box of chocolates (as yet unopened) given by my neighbour's young sons.

Until I typed this I just didn't realise quite how much was there, so perhaps it's time for a tidy-up, or maybe not as it's a long breakfast bar and there's still room for our breakfast!

What a beautiful work space.

I have a small desk, my computer is on it along with a jade Buddha, a box of kleenex, an old recipe box that I'm thinking of "arting up" and some mail waiting to go out.

Sometimes small is good, if I had a bigger desk there would undoubtedly be more stuff on in.

Ah, seeing your table and your "things" makes me homesick for you even when I've never been to your home. You've inspired me to go out to my newly power washed patio and do a little writing tonight. The weather is very nice.

That is a delightful photo!

This looks so charming and cozy Roz. I would love to move right it.

I tidyed my writing desk yesterday, so now I have room for actually writing :-)

I must have whisked by that table while we were there visiting you, but I don't remember it. Either there or the summer house seem ideal for doing any kind of journaling/writing.

My desk is a shambles. I have stacks of things to tend to - thank yous from the trip, pictures to write on the back of, a couple of things to file and a file of sorts where I tuck things that need attention (at the moment chuck full of those types of things!). And this doesn't even begin to include correspondence....

I love your table and it looks like the perfect snug to sit and ponder life in. I'm smiling, too, remembering having tea in your garden. Hugs
