Blue desk "styled"

Since I can't do any posts including pictures that I have taken previously, I thought I'd finally share with you what the blue desk looks like now that it has been filled for a while. I took these pictures this afternoon, and this is pretty much what it looks like everyday.

To be honest, I'm not 100% thrilled with the way it's styled, but it needs to be more functional than stylish at this point, so I'm ok with it!

If you missed the original makeover on this desk, click here.

Some baby memory books, a pretty storage jar for change, some framed pictures, and a messy stack of books and magazines (that I never have time to look at!).

The basket holds mail and other papers, the tiny makeshift tray is for Josh's stuff that comes out of his pocket at the end of the day. I actually need to replace this with something a little larger and cuter!

I also recently made another little update around the corner from this desk.

I don't know if I've shared this little area of the house on the blog before, but previously I just had a black and white print of a flower hanging here. It was ok, but really just something to fill the space. It was nothing I loved or had any attachment to. 

Now hanging here, is a picture of my dad driving a racehorse back in 1970. I found it in my sister's room the last time I was at my mom's house, and made a copy for myself. I love it in this space and it's so much more meaningful and interesting to look at than the other picture I had hanging up here before. I wish I had more racing pictures of my dad, though. Most of them were destroyed in a basement flood when I was a little girl, so this one is a rare treasure to me. 

I hope you liked these little updates! 

I'm working on getting things together for my very first blog sale! Thanks to all of you who expressed interest in that! I will have it up and running as soon as I can!

    Tamatha...I am so not good at writing in it every day! I usually just remember the things I want to write (or save them as a note in my phone) and then write a few days worth of entries all at once!
