My office isn't the brightest room, especially on a rainy day. But I am grateful for this little space. © 2012 Amber Schley Iragui.

Beautiful...I ♥ seeing what your kids are doodling...and your old desk....and stool, carpet and a shelf full of books!

I so missed not participating last week in the Photo Friday project! Your theme choices never cease to challenge me.

Again, your use of light is just so lovely. These photos wordlessly give witness to the immense importance of creativity and work - they make me want to sit down and craft something. Thanks for sharing these snippets of your life!

much love,

Lovely pictures. Lovely light. I, too, had trouble with the "work" aspect of this week's theme, so I more or less ignored it.

BTY, the anti robot images are sometimes very difficult! When I do not comment, it is because I've failed the test several times in a row.

I love the third one. Beautiful space, beautiful light. A place to breathe, rest and work.

I gasped seeing your Crestwood apartment! :)
I have such similar work table to the one you have now! and I LOVE that chair - where did you get it?!
