Daniels Office Show And Tell

Dear Friends,

We are getting closer to moving time (July) and I still have a few rooms to share with you from our little country cottage. 
Most of you know that Dan teaches English at Auburn University and writes poetry so his office is full of books. 
We found this chair (which we hope to reupholster soon) at a thrift store. 
His leather briefcase was a yard sale find.  

This telephone lamp was his Grandfather's and it rests on the desk that his father made him.
The owl portrait was a Mississippi yard sale find.
The little birdie was a going away gift from our friends Suzanne and Neil in Mississippi.

This radio was found at a yard sale in Washington and The Black Apple print was a birthday gift from our dear friend Marjorie.

Dan loves to surround himself with books.
I love that about him, but it makes me grumpy when we move.

This is his workspace. 
It's boring to look at but there is a lot of sentiment in this photo. 
The Formica table was my best friend Karyn's grandfather's.
The file cabinet was my Daddy's. 
It has locks on it because my Daddy used to hide treats in the top drawer.
He called us his crumb snatchers.

My sister Buffy gave Dan this frame and he keeps an old Polaroid of me (from when we first met) in it.

I love that my husband has a cozy little nook to hide away in. 

Next week I hope to share my art room / guest room. 
You can see the rest of our home here, here, and here.

I am off to pick up my Daniel from the airport in Atlanta.
I can't wait to see him.

MMMM I LOVE all those books! And I know what you mean about moving with them though.. haha. We had 21 boxes of books - 800-ish books (you can count easily if you count them as you pack and put the number in each box on the box, if you're curious!)
