My Quiet Place

"I would not exchange my leisure hours for all the wealth in the world."
~Comte de Mirabeau

I thought I'd share with you my quiet place; the place where I read and write and think.

My desk holds many memories; and for someone as nostalgic as me, that's highly important. Oh if my little desk could talk... I bet it could tell you some insane stories.

Today, however, is catalogue day! Me, Little Peep, a cup of peppermint tea, and the newest installment of one of our favorite catalogues, have decided to spend some quality time together. Off we go to the quiet place and drift into the land of wonder. The sound of rain pitter-patters on the roof, but we are content in our cozy, peaceful retreat.

Why is it so much fun to turn the pages and dream of owning all these amazing trinkets and unique goodies?

Oh but it is. Kate loves getting the Pottery Barn catalog and "thinking about how cool that furniture would be in her room.

I love Williams and Sanoma and all the great things I would cook.

If we didn't have dreams, life would be so boring.

PS peppermint tea is my favorite !
