Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

CSN Winnings Spent

Traut - 4305B - Full Mini Cubby Bench in Black

A while back I won a $100 gift certificate from ~Terri at Alexia's Books and Such...and the great folks at CSN. As I was redecorating an empty bedroom and turning it into my office/library of course I decided to get a bookcase or desk to go in there. I spent hours pouring over the CNS for just the right item to go in my newly painted and papered office. I finally decided on the black Mini Cubby Bench by Traut. It arrived in a very timely manner and with nothing more than my electric screw driver, I had it very quickly put together. The instructions were very concise and easy to understand. As I had taken the louvered doors off the closet and opened it up to use for my office supplies, I decided to put the Cubby inside and put my All-in-one printer on top of it. This had it at an excellent level to use and with the extra cubbies, I had room to not only keep my copy paper and ink cartridges but space to keep my snuggy blanket that I often threw over my feet in the winter and other goodies. I’ve used this a couple of weeks now and it was an excellent use of the gift certificate. It is very sturdy and I whole heartily recommend it. I also saw that the same manufacture has a full sized bench that I plan on getting and placing in our mudroom. It will be an excellent place to sit and remove your outside shoes and store them in the cubby holes.

It looks very nice and neat. How come my desk doesn't look like that it's always cluttered with papers and other objects. Congrats on your super nice win.

I love this small, cozy and quaint office space. I'm working on my space as well so I might need to head over to CSN. Did you get the desk from their too?
