I Love My Little Office

My upstairs office is where I do 'real' work, unlike my downstairs office and studio, where I do 'unreal' work, I guess. This office is 'close' enough to be called cozy, and I do find it cozy to work in here: surrounded by my art treasurers, stuff I've made, stuff from friends. I can try to get inspired to do spreadsheets and reports by looking at some of my 'fat books,' my 'library' of art books, cook books and fiction, my antiques, even my old stuffed animals.
My office is very neutral- a little beige and sage- so it's a good foil for anything I want to display. My unstuffed, real cats have a bed in here, too, an actual breakfast tray that they claimed. So, I bought a rug for inside it and made it no longer a breakfast tray, of course!
The sun comes cheerily in through two windows, so I can catch it from the north or east. These photos were taken at 8:30 p.m., and the Indiana sun is still making big shadows. I spend a lot of time in here, so I might as well make the best of it!
