These are a few snapshots from my desk workspace in my apartment. This desk has seen a lot: multiple sewing projects, late nights spent writing both my undergraduate and Master's theses, craft projects, and the occasional buffet space for a dinner party. All of these items, except the desk, are thrifted pieces from trips to antique stores throughout California or found wayside on the streets of San Francisco and Berkeley. I refurbished the rickety chair which I found on the sidewalk by stripping its finish and reupholstering the seat with a brown and light blue polka dot print. The Field Book of Ponds and Streams is also a favorite find of mine. Written in the early 1900s, it features scientific sketches of flora and fauna throughout America. It was the perfect place to perch some of my owl collection.
