my writing studio

I keep books on my desk for inspiration.
Some of these books are over a hundred years old.

Here's a nook where I have a jar of markers and a few favorite quotes.  

The middle quote says, "The deepest secret in our heart of hearts is that we are writing because we love the world." -Natalie Goldberg

I also wanted to hang this Save The Date postcard in my studio.  
(Painted by my sister, Miranda Maxwell.)

Calvin seems very pleased with our newest addition: 
a nautical print bench cushion.

It's our new favorite spot to curl up with a good book.

Speaking of books, here's my bookshelf!

I painted the chair a color called "down pour blue" 
because I think it's the most wonderful name for a color.  

And, I created these pictures using a cookie cutter in the shape of an A.

Bonus Question: Both of my cats love spending time in this writing studio.  Can you find them?
