      Welcome, Gina! Glad you found your way here:) Thanks!

  2. What a wonderful spot to work in, Lora, especially with that nice big window! I love your pretty upholstered chair, so much nicer than a utilitarian looking office chair. Wondering where you ordered it from?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wayfair, Marie! I will get an aff link on this post soon, too;) The comfy chair definitley makes it!

    You found the perfect place, i love your table and old typewriter, thanks for sharing and have fun watching nature out that window.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I am, Marlene! Especially fun in the Springtime!

  4. Your office is so pretty Lora! I LOVE, LOVE that typewriter with the faux plants!


    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m just so happy I finally found one…at a good price;)

  5. Well goodness gracious, this is just all so lovely and appealing!
    You definitely have an eye for fabulous finds and then you take them to a whole level of beauty.
    Totally gorgeous, I really need a vintage typewriter too, I am convinced now!
    So fun to share in this Spring hop with you!

      Thanks, Jemma!

  6. Lora,
    The perfect office table, chair, and location! How nice to be able to work in a quiet place with a view to outside. When my family starts talking to me while I am blogging, I lose focus for both their conversation and for my blog post content. I, too, retreat to my bedroom for a quiet place.

    Happy spring,

      We’ve got everyone home right now, Judith, and the dining room table was just not cutting it. I’m the same; distracted by the smallest things:( I have to get away, or I read the same sentence over 10x and don’t understand what I read!

  7. You have inspired me! I love your vintage work space…that old type writer with the succulents is just darling! I pinned it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It is a little vintage eye candy to look at while I’m typing, Kelly;) Glad you liked it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Paula! It’s good to be able to get away from the rest of the house and have a quiet place to work!

  8. What a lovely workspace, Lora! I love your new chair…it looks so cozy! I admit, with that beautiful view out the window…it would be enticing me to ditch the work and go outdoors…

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Enjoying it from here helps me not think I’m missing it, Linda! For some reason, I always need to be facing outdoors whenever I’m doing anything creative! I’m all about good windows!

    What an inspiring home office you have! I love how you refinished that table to use as a desk but my favorite is that typewriter. What is it about vintage typewriters that are so perfect? I love, love, love how you styled yours! I also love the way you face the outdoors…so peaceful. Such a lovely home office! Great to hop with you again! (This may be a duplicate comment but I’ve had problems commenting with my blog email so I am using my personal one here.)
    Stay well!

      Thanks, Shelley! Your comment came through just fine this round! I’ve always loved vintage typewriters, too, and was pleased as punch to find this one in a curbside pile; free is the best price!

  10. This is such a beautiful workspace, Lora! I love all the vintage touches you’ve added and how rescued that gorgeous table too. I love the paint colors you chose and how you left the wood grain, it’s gorgeous! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, CoCo! The table really ended up being the perfect size!

  11. Lora, you ALWAYS have the best projects. I can’t believe the junk finds you hauled this year! Holy cow! Good job, lady.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It really was an amazing junking year, Rita! I can’t wait to get to some more of them! Wish my hands worked as fast as my brain:)

  12. Lora, I am always inspired by your creative repurposes. I have a bedroom office nook, too and I love your fun ideas! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Thanks for sharing your pretty office nook at Vintage Charm!
