This is my blogspot

The fact that Winona of Daddy Likey is a blogging genius, I'm sure most of you know. I've written about her hilarious fashion blog before, so you have no excuse whatsoever. But, what you probably don't know, is that this time she actually invented a new tag! And I got so excited about it, I actually made her tag me. Yes, I'm subtle like that. The proof is still on her comments section, if you are inclined. What I didn't know at the time, was that Sal of Already Pretty (if you don't know her blog either, you really have work to do) knows me well enough to guess that I'd love it, so she tagged me too. Thanks girl!

The rules are simple:
1. Once you are tagged, post a picture of where you blog.
2. Feel free to tell us a little about your space, or explain certain items in more detail. Or not.
3. Link back Daddy Likey's original post.
4. Tag five other bloggers to show their blog spots.
5. If you are tagged and do not participate, you will become allergic to cabbage.

So, this is where I blog. These days, at least. You see, I've been through many phases. I've been a coffee table blogger and a kitchen table blogger. I've even blogged from other people's computers. But lately, I felt the need to be more serious and have a proper working space, even if it's more about tackling my school work efficiently and less about the blogging.
So, I rediscovered my beloved desk that was hiding under a pile of crap. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. One box here, some files there and next thing you know, you are wondering if you by any chance gave that desk away, cause there's nowhere to be seen.

Above the desk I have a collection of cute little nothings pinned on a cork board. Clothes tags I couldn't bear to throw away, concert tickets (how cheesy), one mini calendar of 2007 with fairies and one of 2009 with cats (how cheesier can I get?), a poster of the lecture Jean Nouvel gave in 2006 in Columbia University and a small cardboard model of my "wall house".

Cute tags, right?

More work-related stuff and a 2009 planner with drawings of cats. (Yes, I can be cheesier.)

Two chipped coffee mugs filled with pens that don't work.

And on the left corner, all the rolls of blueprints I've accumulated during these last 7 years of attending architecture school.

And check out this humongous pile of boxes on the right! Oh my, moving to Athens next month is starting to look hard... So much stuff!

To get my mind off such thoughts, I'll tag some people:
1. Elena of Life Full of Clothes
2. Lucia of Blog-tales
3. Laura of Daisy Chain Dreams
4. Chloe of Chloe in the Sky
5. Antoinette of Clevergirl

Show your blogspots, girls!

Antoinette said...

What a great space for creating and thinking! Thanks for the tag, my dear. I am not sure how soon I will get to do this but I promise I will!

το δικό μου blogspot είναι τόσο μπουρδέλο που δεν το βάζω άλλα πολύ ωραίο παιχνιδάκι. ΚΑλώς σε βρήκα συνάδελφε!!

Yvonne: That maze-like thing was supposed to be a vertical house. Yes, we architects do weird things when we feel like it...

Chloe: It's not actually vintage, I bought it on my first year as a student exactly because it looks old! But I would have rescued it if I had found it in the street, too!

Mahler76: Ελπίζω να μην ξενερώσεις από τις αμέτρητες φωτογραφίες παπουτσιών και ρούχων στο ταπεινό μου μπλογκ και να σε ξαναδούμε από τα μέρη μας!

βάλε και καούκες και θα έρχομαι κάθε μέρα!!!
