pilgrim's place: 'my place & yours: just five minutes peace'


hoorah! i'm the theme queen for pip's 'my place & yours' this week. despite my boyfriend insisting on seeing peoples' walk in humidors, or western wings, or orangerys, i have chosen the theme of 'just five minutes peace.'

where do you retreat to for that sanity-regaining break? i am interested in what or where in your home your sanctuary is.

when i get those golden times of peace and quiet, i like to curl up on my ottoman with a delicious cup of tea of some variety. the beauty of the ottoman is there really is only room for one, which sounds selfish, but anyone with children will tell you personal space is at a premium. it's in a light corner of the room, so its good to read or sew or crochet in and its just so colorful and happy it never fails to recharge me. did i mention the comfort factor? oh its comfortable. i've snoozed there, i've daydreamed, i've contemplated the ceiling. the restorative powers of this piece of furniture can not be underestimated.

edit: i can't possibly thank ms sara enough for actually pointing out that i was indeed this week's theme queen. seems i missed the post on 'mikes and was very confused that there seemed to be no 'my place and yours' this last week. in conclusion: a-doy and three cheers for friends

oh it looks so cozy and uplifting, all at the same time. Magical furniture does exist. A colourful, crafting throne for the theme queen, I like it.
p.s what exactly is an orangery? and would pete settle for a pic of my west wing dvds, even though they're just burnt copies?

and, where would you be without me huh? Huh?! huh?!! ;-)
love your work! xx
