The conservatory

There is a very small room just off the kitchen in our apartment. It has many purposes and many names. This picture is my old desk and the office part of the room. It also has two armless upholstered chairs and a brightly coloured round rug. We keep Joe’s guitars here, an old pair of drumsticks, and a thumb piano that I picked up a church fair years ago. I also keep a big basket of books and toys for my grandchildren in the corner. In a sort of tongue in cheek way we refer to the room as the conservatory because we do play music in it and it also holds a few of my houseplants. My grandson has christened it the playroom however. Either way…there’s my desk.

I’ve been participating in A Bowl Full of Lemons challenge. We are organizing and decluttering one room a week for 14 weeks. We just moved here in July so there isn’t years worth of decluttering for me to do. I purged so much stuff when we downsized to this apartment. I still have a few things that need to go however, because I wasn’t sure if I would need certain things or not…turns out…not. Also, it was a big move and I didn’t take any time off of work so some rooms aren’t put together as well as I would like. This challenge is the perfect opportunity for me to straighten things up.

One thought on “The conservatory

  1. It is lovely, and I adore the colors! I bet many of us don’t know what a thumb piano is, maybe you could do a post about it sometime. Did you make the bulletin board, I really like it.
