A Little Pink in My Life: The 'Mom Cave'.

Pin It Now!
This is my little 'Mom Cave'.
It's not a room....but just a small nook at the top of the stairs on our second story.
I have claimed it as my very own home office and creative nook.
The goal of this space is to be both functional and pretty.
I have included touches of my favourite colour~ soft pink.
{This is the only place you will find pink in the entire house.}
It's a  place where I write blog posts, pay bills, watch a little tv, & read blogs.
Do a little scrapbooking or cardmaking.
You can find me here in the evenings...relaxing and sipping tea while I oversee bedtime for the juniors in the house.
Pictures of loved ones grace the shelves.
 {This one is of my parents on their 40th Anniversary.}
Treasured antiques live here~
like this doll from the 1920's that belonged to my Grandmother's sister who died at 14 in 1931.
Precious gifts made by my children rest here too~like this shadow box made by daughter when she was 11.
Words of inspiration have a place of their own as well.
It includes a place to receive sunshine and a bench for sitting & reflecting~
And a place for visitors to perch.
{And yes...you see snow outside already...today is October 25th}
This is where I sit to read many of your blogs~
So many talented women...so much inspiration to enjoy!
Thank you so much for letting me share my little 'Mom Cave' with you.

Happy Monday!

What a great space! I'm finally going to have a space to myself... as soon as I finishing painting and furnishing the bonus room for my husband. But I am SO excited to have a space to call my own. :o)

What an inspiration you are to me! I have a "Mom Cave", but it is such a mess that I am too embarrassed for anyone to see it! I love what you have done with your space! I think I can use some of your ideas to "spruce up" mine! :)

Jane said...

I am totally impressed with your niche. What a great space and so organized. Fantastic job!

nice niche that you carved out for yourself...I can imagine you sitting with a cup of tea and gazing out the window...a few stolen moments of peace and quiet.

Nancy said...

Your space looks so inviting. You have done a great job with it. And did you say snow! :)

Natasha said...

This is a divine space;I would love to create a pretty little area like that. Your little treasures are so beautiful and I just love that sweet little vintage plate hanging above your desk.

It is all gorgeous!

Best wishes,

I forgot to tell you that I made the Wedding soup last night!! It turned out wonderful and we are having more of it tonight!
Thanks for that Angie we are loving it!!

Michaela said...

I love your shelves! They're perfectly organized. The lamp on your desk is super cute, too!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

I didn't realize what a narrow space your nook is - your desk almost fits the width of it, doesn't it? Just a perfect size for a mom cave. I still love how you've done those shelves.

Kimberly {YeP, they are all mine} said...

I want that lamp!!!! Good luck with the contest :)

Jen said...

Its such a beautiful space!
No mistaking..Its for the mom only!!

Amanda said...

Wow...a lovely, feminine nook just for you! Thank you for sharing! I love all of your touches of pink! The doll is very sweet and I love that she is displayed in such a special place!

Ashley said...

What a lovely space you have! All the little pink touches really make it. My favorite thing is how perfectly organized everything is!

Melanie {The Tiny Tudor} said...

This is such a lovely little nook! Very pretty and organized space.

Prior said...

What a whimsical spot, just the right touch of pink. I've always like those spots at the top of stairs, because you are still in the center of things, but in your own space, too. Great job! Lezlee
