The picture on the left is of ‘my chair’ – although there is a little black pug who thinks otherwise and he usually insists on joining me. At the moment, the furniture is a bit smushed to make way for the Christmas tree. To the right of my chair is dresser (an 18th century map chest, Vicki!) – the top two drawers are magazines and books and the rest is just one of many stash homes. You can also see my laptop on top of the chest —- this is a system that is not visually pleasing, but one which is very convenient….. still mulling it over. Speaking of visually unpleasing…. behind my chair is another chair with a white garbage bag on it – that is my Rhinebeck haul. The coffee table is an old lobster trap that my father turned into a table. On it I have an old black metal tackle box that I use for knitting notions. You may also catch sight of my dressage whip.
Yeah, I have a whip. So what – don’t you? I use it to smack (lightly, I swear) the asses of bad dogs —- this allows me to try and maintain order while not getting up from my chair!! I usually just wave it around and scream – this generally works to restore order as all the canines stare at me as though I’ve lost my mind. Ha!! With my whip at the ready and my cordless phone by my side, I reign supreme from this throne.
The other picture is the view from my throne. To the left of the entertainment center is a desk – inside is my ball winder, camera and various important cords to run electronic equipment. On top are more knitting books (also under it too, but I don’t think you can see that). On the wall is an antique needles, shuttles and bobbins display/dispenser from The Boye Needle Company.
and that completes our tour of Ann’s Kingdom …..
thank you all for your well wishes regarding D#2. She is home and recuperating – I kept her home yesterday and today they are having a snow day. She will be 100% in no time.
the best part? her plan for today’s glorious snowday ……. have a friend come over and knit!! (have I died and gone to heaven?) she is working on legwarmers for herself and the friend wants lessons!
**there is still hope for me to get to Granny’s for some NatureSpun for Irish Moss – the weather reports are for this to be over soon….. fingers crossed!
