100 Year Old Home - Craft Room

Down in my basement, I have a nook.


A nook that is mine...all mine.


A nook filled with things that inspire me to create.


A nook that at one time was my husband's.

A nook where *we* compromised as a suitable location for his bachelor decor.  By compromising *we* agreed his mask collection was best out of sight.

And, out of sight, we happily compromised until the beautiful Parson Tower Desk he made me was placed in this nook.


Believe it or not, he willingly compromised {again} by donating his masks in honor of my nook.

I am positive, one day, I'll see a spray painted makeover of these masks on a blog.  Maybe one day, you'll see them hanging in Sherry Petersik's house :)


So, the masks came down and a TV went up because, this is still just a nook.  

A beautiful little nook I share with some workout equipment...


and my husband :)

  14. You can send the masks to anyone's house you want but don't put my name in the hat to send the exercise equipment to.
