My Happy Place

Do you have a favorite spot in your house? I do. It is my office. I really like being in it because it is peaceful and quiet and it has pretty things to look at.

These things aren't in my office but are just outside of it.  This spot makes me smile.  I found the yellow teapot at a thrift store near Tahoe.  It shouted out to me to buy it, so I did.  Then I found the other teapot at a nearby consignment store.  I just thought it was so cute.  The cake plate I ordered off of Amazon.  I got it with a gift card one of my students gave me.  She really makes me laugh.
I finally found a cabinet at Kmart.  Not to brag but I put this together with my own two hands.
The other day I was in this cute furniture store with a friend and this sign caught my eye.  It was just so serene looking and I liked what it said.  It is perfect for my office.
These two pieces are from my new favorite artist- Kelly Rae Roberts.  I just love her stuff..  The little sign says, Dear You , it's going to be okay really truly.   The heart says believe.
This is another piece from the same artist.  It is her soul sisters figurine.  I really liked it but didn't think it was appropriate to buy for myself, so I gave my friend the money and she bought for me.  Crazy, I know.

I hope you have enjoyed your "tour" through my happy place.  I am excited to hear/see yours.

Your teapots and cake plate are darling. I can see how they would brighten up your day! I've finally got my little happy place(my office) done. It's so good to have my own little corner.

Hi honey
Love your office and your pieces are really beautiful.
I love my sitting room/office in my bedroom but since I have been trying to redo some of the room I am not enjoying it so much. lol
Just joined your site but I really thought I was already a follower. Sometimes I wonder about myself.
Have a great weekend

Love your office, I made mine to be a happy place too, it is more whimsical with green on green painted stripes, my Just The Right Shoe and paper weight collections placed around the room to keep me smiling while I am doing "officey" things. Hope you are having a great weekend!! :)
