The Friday Five: Hearts Galore

I didn’t actually mean to have such a Valentine’s Day-focused week on the blog this week, but¬†my posts just ended up that way. I wonder if this is when I’m supposed to realize that I should be moving towards using an editorial calendar for my blog posts? I’ve resisted¬†using such a calendar because I¬†have always taken¬†more of a let-the-blog-evolve-naturally-my-life-is-already-over-scheduled approach to blogging. Anyway, I digress…this post isn’t actually about how to be a blogger. It’s about how to¬†live with hearts! It is February, after all! So, let’s get to it, shall we?

Living with hearts…do you? will you? could you? I’d love to know if any of these spaces strike your fancy.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Enjoy your weekend (it’s a long one for us in Ontario…Happy Family Day, too!).

The Friday Five: Offices

I’m curious – is an office an essential element in your home? Almost everyone that I know has some sort of office space in their home even though it is sometimes the case that they don’t work from home.¬†When did the home office become such a necessity?

My own office makes me happy because it includes, among other things, a lot of natural light, a vintage desk, bookshelves, and artwork from around the world. And you? What are the absolute must-haves in your home office space?
