The Desk

Happy Tuesday, D. D. Scott-ville!

I've got a special story to share with y'all today...about The Desk...

As in, The Desk I've used to write and publish all ten of my Ebooks as well as The Desk I'll be using forever and beyond.

This one right here...that used to belong to my superfab DH:




Here's the scoop...

Once upon a time, about 30 years ago, my DH bought this gem of a desk for around $25 at a garage sale.

For years, he used it every day.

Three years ago, he "lost" this treasure in a divorce...as in his "ex" kept The Desk.

Early last Spring (2010), the DH and I were at a wonderful Antique Show, and that same desk caught my DH's eye. At the time, he had no idea it was The Desk! The dealer told us he'd picked it up at an estate auction the year prior.

My DH was opening up the drawers to check the condition of the piece when he gasped...it was The Desk!

How did he know?

He'd patched a place inside one of the drawers, and there it was...his handiwork lookin' right back at him.

So guess what?

I had to have The Desk as my new writing desk. I knew me and my muses would thrive on my DH's energy and history with that piece of furniture.

We bought it back...for $900!!!

Since then, I've created 10 magical stories sitting at this same desk and plan to continue cranking out books here for our very own happily ever after.




So How 'Bout All of You in D. D. Scott-ville...Do you have some special piece of furniture in your home? And what's the story behind it?

  12. Very cool story! :) Love how the desk came back to him like that. My computer desk is an old 1960's style office desk my dad bought in the 80s when they closed down the office/warehouse where we were at the time. The top's pretty battered in spots, but I love it.

    For me, it's all about the spirit of this having belonged to my DH for so many years. I really do think it gives my muses a wee bit of magic!

    I often imagine his arms resting right where mine do now...
