Ok, so we have this shed/greenhouse thing in the backyard that was my Miss Modish headquarters (when it was a vintage shop) but now, it's just a half-empty little shell with lots of potential.
This is Roald Dahl's writing hut, called "The Gipsy House"- oh man, look at it! It's perfect, in and out- his chair, his walls pinned full of stuff, his collections, blankies, the yellow door!
Dylan Thomas' writing hut- I could easily add some little shelves to the inside of our shed (or, the mister could- you would like that huh, mr? :) and fill em with art and old books and little thingies I love and that would be awesome. So awesome.
Virginia Woolf's writing shed. A room of one's own!
text from Re-Nest: "George Bernard Shaw's writing hut, dubbed 'London' so his staff wouldn't be lying when they said he had 'gone to London'." Hah! I'd definitely have to think of a name for mine, hmm...
I've felt the writing bug coming back to me lately, and then finding this post filled with so much inspiration, and happening to have a "what do we do with it?" shed in our yard, well... it's feeling a lot like fate! I love the idea of a little writing retreat in my own backyard- the shed already has a view of the garden, a wall full of windows with amazing morning light... there's good vibes in there. I really liked hanging out in it when I had the shop. This could be even better! What do you think, Mr Mister?
