My mess

Rising to the challenge (or is it the bait?) of Francesca's post about messy homes and unstylish parts of them, I present the central bit of my studio. Look! The boots I wore 2 days ago! The hat I wore last week, I think? The notebooks that arrived a week before that! The dress I'm fixing, the bag I'm working on, the last book I read - and part of the mutoscope. And behind the chair, the trunk that catches the fallout from my desk (just keep shifting things out the way, till they fall off...) I thought it would be lovely to have a comfy chair in my studio, to sit in while I sip tea and ponder new ideas. And it would be.

While I'm on the honesty ride, here's another unappealing bit: the window that leaks and can only be fixed next week, maybe. So for now a towel will have to do.

This is a hopefully a bit of a 'Before' shot, because from next month this will be my studio window. I'll be able to sit and work in the sun - at my desk! I feel warmer already.

I also have a leaking window!
Which runs down over the tiles in the kitchen and down the back of the sink and now the whole surface is swollen...
By the way! I saw you and Heather in the Obrigado mag and you look sooooo beautiful!!

Hahaha! I am tempted to take pics of my workroom/study, only it will be embarrassing. Let's just say it is much, much worse than yours. Really!

Why is it that chairs in studios and bedrooms always go that way? Mine is the same. Just one big dumping ground.

ah, just beautiful jesse! i love the trunk that catches all the stuff from your desk, like some kind of mess conveyor belt that keeps on moving.

and your leaky window 'before' shot is to be commended! x

Thanks for being so honest! It is soooo comforting! Creative living and tidiness just don't seem to go together!

Love it! Had every intention of joining in on the messy pics, until my parents came over for lunch on Sunday, necessitating a major blitz! Now it looks like a museum exhibit.

Thing is, my spaces look like that after I've cleaned them up!
