Office Gear for My Office

Guysers! I’m excited about this post because it’s about an office, and I have one of those now! I’ve been carving out a spot in our house for a real home office, I need a work space now that I’ll be blogging way more often. Did you hear that? I’ll be blogging tons now, I’m going for it! I’ve been able to post a lot more the last few weeks, which has been feeling incredibly awesome to do. I hope you guys are enjoying the extra posts as well. It’s almost the most cliché thing I could say, but I feel like a new person now that I have time to dedicate to doing something that I truly love and enjoy. My kids are cool and all, but being creative and working is what makes me tick. I’ve also been putting the finishing touches on a business idea that I’ve been exploring the past few months, more on that in coming weeks though.

I’ve decided that my work base will be in the upstairs sunroom, it’s a good quiet place with lots of chill vibes. The sunroom has always been one of my favorite spaces in the house, I like being around all my plants, and it’s bright and sunny, which I think will do wonders for my state of mind in the winter months. In case you’re not familiar with this space, it’s a small four season porch right off our master bedroom and had been functioning as a place for us to unwind, consume a cocktail or two, and watch some of the old idiot box at the end of a day. The thing is though, we haven’t used it for doing anything at all since we finished the basement last summer (which has a much bigger and louder tv). I also considered using the guest bedroom as an office because it’s bigger, but I’d still like to reserve that room for down the road when the boys might decide they want to have separate bedrooms.

I’ve been spending some time this week making the space conducive for intense blogging seshes. I set up a new larger desk (aka plank of wood), got myself a black board for my daily to-do lists, definitely smudged some crystals, lit a candle once or twice, and bought a bunch of ridiculously pretty and unnecessary office items like those copper paper clips and a brass tape measure (seen above). I’m realizing that no matter how absurd, having a pretty work space really does matter. Didn’t know it, now I do. I’ll be sharing more next week.

    New posts! New posts! I too live in a large, old, weirdish house, and I’ve found so much inspiration (and motivation) from reading your blog! I’m definitely looking forward to more frequent blogs!

    • Scoops September 27, 2016

      Yes! So glad you found me! I’m really excited to be back in the saddle! Thanks for the welcome return.

    WOW! Love all those gorgeous desk accessories!!!
    I will also FINALLY have a working space at home, a small desk in the bedroom but better than nothing :)
    And 2 weeks ago I found a similar vintage chair on ebay that need to be reupholstered.
    Anyway, I look forward to read more posts and to see all those beauties in your new space ;)

      Cool find! I wanna find a chair like that. I’m sure I will when the time is right. Congrats on your working space, it feels so good, right?

    I LOVE the look of the Vornado fan and have been considering pulling the trigger, but I would be using it to replace a (giant) box fan that I currently sleep with at night. Is it pretty powerful even though it’s smallish?

    • Scoops September 27, 2016

      Yes, powerful for sure. I have both the senior and the regular sized one (not the smaller junior). Both work really well, we move them around the house quite a bit, and it makes me wish we had more. I don’t know if they circulate air as advertised – they are meant to be pointed up towards the ceiling at an angle to circulate the air throughout the room. I like to point them right at me, and that works great :) For what it’s worth, hey are super heavy duty too. I’m sick of replacing cheap-y fans, and I hope these last a long time.

        Thanks so much! I went ahead and got the white Sr. one—excited to get it! (Fall is interesting timing to buy a fan, I suppose, but I’ve been thinking about it all summer.) :)
