Reality Shot Thursday

This is a meme hosted by Claudia at Mockingbird Hill.  As much as we all love seeing perfection in decorating blogs, and even in our own pictures that we choose to share on our blogs, we all know -- it's not reality.  Claudia invites us to loosen up a little and share some "real life."

Here's mine.  This is how I keep the top of my desk clean (most of the time).
It's important that I keep the file drawer open at all times, so notebooks are within easy reach!

If you'd like to share a touch of reality, join Reality Shot Thursday.

Great shot, Karen! I love the open file drawer, it made me laugh. Oh, I totally get it. When I'm working at our desk, things are all over the place.

Thanks so much for joining in!!

Yes, reality. Makes perfect sense.

Karen, a perfect solution to deal with desk clutter - shove it underneath, why haven't I done that! Unfortunately my DH has stuffed the desk drawers so full, organized but dangerously full, I'm scared that entire mess will tip over and fall on top of me some day!

Happy Reality Shot Thursday - Mary

Well yes, why close it - when you just have to open it again?! Perfect sense! Love, Linda

Karen I am so glad you are posting a reality shot. My house is such a mess right now I had way too many shots to choose from.
Happy Thursday,
Meredith

Love your shot of reality Karen. I think your drawer-open rationale is quite understandable! Ann

Thanks for giving us a look ... I think we all might have one of those catch-all drawers. Sometimes we just need to sweep off our workspace in a fit of creativity!

Why, that could be my work space!

At least it's colorful and makes a good photo. :)
