A room of one’s own…

In her book, ‘A room of one’s own’, Virginia Woolf states, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”   I heartily agree with this, but substitute “create art” for “write fiction” in my case.

I have had my own room since my daughter left home a few years ago and it has gone through various stages of disarray and untidiness throughout. I have been able to create art though, despite the mess, as those of you who follow my blog will know.

Recently, we bought new carpet for all the bedrooms and my room was the first to be fitted. Two lovely ladies came to do the re-painting and I had new blinds fitted. Then came the carpet! We bought it in a sale so the colour is rather unusual but lovely and soft underfoot! I have deployed spare pieces of carpet, rugs and plastic table covers to protect it from the worst of my paint splotches!

I really like to look at other studios and took a few photos during the process so that I could show my readers what I’ve done. It’s still a ‘work in progress’ but things are being replaced and sorted gradually. Do you think I’ll be able to keep it tidy? Let me know in the comments what you think.

Happy 5th Anniversary!

I made a Smilebox slide show for my daughter & son-in-law and posted them on facebook and twitter. Now, I can’t find them on either, so this is my second attempt at wishing them a happy 5th anniversary from John and I!! How time flies! Hope this is successful!!
