The School Stool

My daughter is attending college but still lives here at home. She is an art major and she has a lot of supplies that she lugs back and forth to school. I tried to find one spot where she could drop everything and designated this stool in the corner of the kitchen.

I call it the School Stool.

Of course, the supplies and outerwear collect in other places in the case of an overspill. Amos appreciates the soft pile of paper, drawing pads, and jackets.

He picks the sunny room and the jumble of school supplies to curl upon for his nap.
If I had waited another day, I could have photographed the additional couches, kitchen table and coffee table in the living room. They also sported art-in-progress, littered with cut apart magazines, pieces of collage paper, scissors, glue....hole punches...Mod Podge...

Great pictures! I like the way the sunlight is in the second one. :)

We like the sunlight in this room as much as Amos. Sometimes we curl up on the couch for a nap too.

Do you get to curl up with the art supplies too? Ahhh...the overflow is evidence of a daughter's presence and it looks like you already know how precious this is. Will you show us some of her work some time?

I do know that her presence is precious and she won't live with us forever. I don't fuss at the mess but I occasionally move it all in one spot so I can sit down.
