Its 1am and for some reason major insomnia has kicked in, darn its frustrating, ecspecially when i need to be up early as we have to leave town for an appointment at the college my daughters going to attend. It has been a crazy busy summer, I have tried to stop in and read some blogs here and visit my favorite forum House and Home, but that is about as far as it gets. We just returned home from a 3 night stay at a rental cabin, it was a great time and the first time we were able to get away this summer, aww it was so relaxing! I miss reading what all my blogger friends are doing, i bet i have missed so many fun and exciting blogs. I would like to thank everyone that has stopped by to visit me while I have been gone, I really love your visits and soon I will get over to visit your blogs. Two of our daughters return to school Tuesday and our oldest moves into her dorm on the 6th of September, so hopefully things will quiet down a bit so I can do some serious blogging. In the mean time, I send out a big HELLO to all and hope everyone is having a safe fun summer.

I am a firm believer that we all need our own little space where no others can invade our bubble. In our home (which is rather small) every inch is occupied, so this corner is my own space, mine, ALL MINE!!! lol I have many ideas for this corner but budget just won't allow those ideas to put into play at this time, so with the inspiration I gained from reading over at Angela's blog called "ImagineCozy" (you can link to her blog from my list at the right hand side) I feel I did a achieve my special corner. As you can see in the before picture the corner lacked coziness and felt so uninviting. Off shopping I went, "yep" shopped in my own house and came up with these items with the exception of the cream drum stool that sits under the old sewing table, I decided to return the blue\green one when I fell in love with this little cream drumstool, the detail on this little baby just told me I had to have it. Even though I wasn't able to do what I had originally planned for this corner, I must say that im pretty happy with how it turned out and rather proud of myself for not spending a dime to do it, actually I came out ahead when I returned the blue/green drum stool as the new one was half the price. My corner is now an inviting cozy spot for me to visit, read, watch tv, blog and just sit and have a quiet moment.
