Where the Magic Happens... Showing my Blogspot

The lovely Winona at Daddy Likey has created her own meme because she's just that clever and motivated. No longer content to just pass along and half-assed answer the same 5 memes that are out there, she has to make us all look lazy.

Damn her and her cleverness.

Anyway, here are the rules

Show Us Your Blog Spot!

The rules:
1. Once you are tagged, post a picture of where you blog. This might mean a picture of your cozy bed, or your office at work (you naughty employee, you!), or a boring ol' desk like me. Feel free to be creative, but be honest--if your desk is usually covered in Ritz crackers and love letters to Rahm Emanuel, then show us!

2. Feel free to tell us a little about your space, or explain certain items in more detail. Or not.

3. Link back to this post. (I want to see how far this goes!)

4. Tag five other bloggers to show their blog spots.

5. If you are tagged and do not participate, you will become allergic to cabbage.

Well, lord knows I don't want to become allergic to cabbage (and frankly I'm avoiding my work as you will now have photographic evidence of - doh!) here we go.

I blog in at least 3 places and they are all boring. At my dining room table while the hubby watches Family Guy or plays Xbox. Upstairs in my bedroom at my really really tiny desk 6" in front of the TV while the hubby watches Deadwood or plays WoW in his office. Or at work where it is actually quieter than either of those other two places.

I work in a half cube. And I actually don't mind it too much except there is only so much crap I can stuff in there. By the way, these pics are all linked to the big versions on Flickr. With notes!!!!

I have about 30 cords crammed behind that laptop, 3 phones on the desk, an external hard drive and a ton of paper, cups and "inspirational junk".

I love this little corner: my fancy lamp, a glowy salt light, my iPhone so I can see all the Tweets coming through, snarky post-it notes and 50 different colored Sharpies.

I think I've shown this view before but I have even more junk now. And tissues. And papers. I really should do some friggin work already.

Nice quotes about style. More snarky (vintage) quotes.

Ponies! Nuff said.

Domino magazines (sob!) and Blueprint magazines (sob!) and work papers (ick!) as well as some "art" from Japan at Epcot, my lovely Napoleon picure and Etsy.

So who to pick, who to pick????
I'd love to see:
- Painter Girl at Art and Life
- Xenia at Doe Deere
- Vanda at Paraphernalia
- Wendy at Wendy Brandes jewelry (because she loves these!)
- Jennine at The Coveted
I can't wait to see their spaces!

Love the ponies and the fancy lamp at your desk. And of course the red shoes are the most glam.

Thanks for the tag. I'll get to it today.
