In 1980, we bought a house that was built in 1939 by a carpenter/lumber yard owner. His family lived on one floor and they rented the second. It is a very well built home. We spent years working on it and have enjoyed living here. We added this room to the south side and haven't really used it a lot though it is a very comfortable room. We are changing careers in April and will be transforming this room into our office or study. Our present office, we will lease to my brother in law who is going to be the new State Farm Agent. Brian is retiring from State Farm after 32 years and will be finishing his masters degree in theology. He will need lots of shelves for all the books that will have to be moved from his present office plus the new ones he'll need. And we will need computer space. I will move my computer out to this room so we can be together.


I am not sure how to do it yet. I don't know how much I'll have to move out of here first.


I think it will be fun to fix this space for our office/study. We are soooo excited about the future even thought we don't really know what it is. Brian is sure this is what he needs to be doing. God blessed our years in the insurance business but Brian's heart is in teaching Bible. He has always taught Sunday School and other Bible classes and has pastored a small church the past five years. But this is definitely a new adventure. Later, I'll show you how it turns out.

I really like this room. I like the wall paper and all the light and wood. I just can't see how you can make it nicer, except that books are always a plesant edition:-)

It looks like a charming and cozy room. It will make a great office for the two of you.

Thanks for your prayers and encouragement. I appreciate it.

I am awful silly, of course I know now what you mean about the crackers! I will post a photo of them on my diet blog.

this room calls out "Welcome home . . . relax." I can't wait to see the transformation. Books are my FAVORITE decorator item.
