In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Simple Pleasures

Morning at the shed, reading, meditating, sketching...

I normally take a travel mug of coffee with me, but I'll admit it is soon gone.  A few mornings, I've taken an egg in my pocket--there's still enough water in the big copper pot to let me fill my little pan and put my farm-fresh egg on to boil.  I love the versatile hot plate...

If I've cleaned the egg well enough, I'll use the water to make a cup of tea to have with it...I keep a bit of sea salt in a terra cotta jar, and while I wait for the egg to cool enough to peel, sketch it in my journal then have a good hot breakfast on a cold morning.

The small plate with the spirals was made by a potter friend, 
and Joseph brought the pretty mug with him from Virginia.

Simple pleasures...


  1. You are really making me wish I had a shed of reality. I'd be in it all the time.

  2. I probably would too, if I didn't have a sweet husband right next door! And classes to teach, and the computer is here...

  3. Ahhhh--yes--the simple pleasures in life. :):)

  4. Another nice hot egg, lemon tea, and a homemade bran muffin this is good!

  5. Another tea bag! I saw the one Laure Ferlita did so I did one (after she challenged me to try it) and now you've done one too. I love the other pics also.
