In January 2013, the secretary was to the right of the fireplace,
the clock was to the left of the fireplace
To the left of the sofa was the Asian cabinet
To the right was the grandfather clock
And in January 2013, I changed it
Because I was tired of weaving my way behind the wing chair
to get to the secretary
It was nice, to sit at the desk and look out over the side garden
But too often, it was just a quick trip to get a stamp or the scissors or . . .
And so I moved things
The secretary was moved across the room to the left of the fireplace
The Asian cabinet was moved to the right of the fireplace
With a plant on top
And the grandfather clock was moved to the right of the door
To the left of the sofa
And this week, I moved it all again . . .
Back to where it was long ago!
The secretary to the left of the sofa
The grandfather clock to the right of the sofa
Because like a year or so ago,
I got tired of squeezing past the wing chair
To get the scissors or tape or that stamp
The secretary started here
To the right of the front door
Years and years ago!
It's easy to get things in and out
And the blue and white in the secretary brighten up the space
And the grandfather clock
is to the right of the sofa
Behind the wing chair
Where I only have to squeeze
once a week when I wind the clock!
The Asian cabinet stayed where it was
The clivia likes it there
And a happy plant needs to stay a happy plant!
Will I move things again --
And even though there has been three moves,
I must tell you that I am not really a furniture mover
I give great thought when I move anything
Thinking my move is for better use and function
Not just because I want a change!
The secretary in the living room
From 2010, upper right
where it all began
To 2011, when it moved to the right of the fireplace
To 2013 when it moved to the left of the fireplace
To the big picture
Where it is now --
Where it all began!
It's Monday and I'm sharing my living room changes with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday and Judith at A Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday
