My Office Spruced Up


When I say office, boy is that using the term loosly.  I don't really have an office, I just have a small piece of space that I have claimed where I have my computer and it keeps me in the middle of all the action, so that is perfect.


I use the buffet in the breakfast area as my desk and office.  With the two end leaves on the top up, it gives me a really nice long space, so there is plenty of room for my computer screen and keyboard.  The computer tower tucks nicely under the end leaf on the right and is completely out of the way.  The buffet drawers still holds some extra flatware and the bottom holds an assortment of placemats and tablecloths, so really easy to set the table for dining.


Even if I use it for a desk, I like for it to look nice and still function well.  A green and orange sphere, plus a plant have been anchoring the left side.


A trip to GW this week and I found this really cute dog, so of course he just jumped in my basket.


I placed him beside some antique shoe forms and my little desk organizer that I found at GW a while back.  This little organizer is just perfect to hold a couple of tablets, a pin, my computer glasses and a little brush to keep the keyboard clean.  The slanted door opens to hold my camera and my little Flip.  So just about everything I need for blogging is right here.


Isn't he cute.  I have seen so many different ones of these and in so many colors, and usually with spots on them.  I love that mine is just plain, it fits my style best.   I usually see pairs, however there was only one at GW, so he just had to be mine.



Doesn't he have a cute little face. 


See that price, I think he is really a steal.


So as you read my posts, you know I was sitting right here.  Perfect spot to read all of your blogs, watch tv, keep track of what my DH is doing and cook dinner all at the same time. lol  Multi-tasking at it's best.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  6. This is definitely one of the cutest of those little dogs I have seen! You are right.
    It's funny, Marty, but I pictured you in a lavish office..tons of books, mounds of papers in gorgeous filing folders..and here I find this neat, organized, conveniently placed desk top computer...so simple and so neat.
    It's funny how we see one another.

    I have one of those wonderful little desktop organizers..but it is not all organized. At least it wasn't but it WILL be in a few!!
    :)
    Thanks for sharing your blogging space.

  18. You have such a pretty little "office." It just goes to show you that you don't need a big separate room for an office, one can be made anywhere.

  19. Marty, Your blogging space is pretty and so neat and tidy. You always find such great finds to change up things. You would not want to see my blogging spots. I move around and none of them are neat like yours!

  20. Your new little dog figurine is very cute. He looks like he keeps you company while you're working on the computer. I love those finials (spheres) you have also. My computer is in the kitchen too. It really helps when you need to work and cook at the same time. Ha!

  21. I don't know what he was doing at Goodwill. He's too cute to be hanging out there.

  22. Really nice work place...I love having my work area neat and clean..
    Our GW is not the best...rarely, do I find anything that is suitable for me to take home...maybe I just get there too late..
    Blessings.

  26. I can just picture you at work (and play!) in this cozy little spot! All of your accessories are so pretty. I know that I would enjoy working in a spot like this too. I think my favorite part is that it's right in front of a window so that you can keep up with what's going on outside and well as what's going on inside.

  32. I think your pup is very cute, and I am inspired by your thinking out of the box office space. One of my goals for 2012 is going to be to create a better work space.

  35. I'm to lazy to "sit up" when using my computer these days. When I switched to a laptop a few years ago, I switched to writing/reading from my easy chair or my bed. I do have a desk, but it mostly hold things that I carry somewhere comfy to work on. Your area looks so nice and I love your pup!
