A Place of My Own

The only problem is I don’t have a she shed.

I love spending time with my husband, but every now and then I dream about having a little place of my own – a hideaway – a reading and writing retreat space. Maybe something like this only with a different color palette. I like more of a blue and white cottage style or earthy shades of green, and brown.


Ideally, this would be located in a wooded area near some running water or a lake. Nature brings me so much inspirataion, and I’d love a place where there is a definite change of season.

So what is on my wishlist?

  • electricty
  • heating and air conditioning – even if it is portable
  • windows that open and have screens. I love nature but I am not a bug or bird person when they get too close for comfort
  • a hotpot to boil water for my tea or a Keurig so I can have a chai latte every now and then
  • a mini fridge for my veggies, fruit, and cheese and maybe a bottle of sweet reisling or moscato
  • something on which to play music – a record player for my vinyls – maybe somthing for my CDs (yes, I am this old) or I can always go to my trusty Spotify on my phone.
  • a drawer full of writing and drawing utensils
  • Books – lots and lots of books
  • Notebooks

I am sure there are things that I am missing. Feel free to send me some ideas for what to add to the she shed in my mind.

  1. That would be nice, wouldn’t it!!
    Maybe a nice weighted blanket in your favorite color? Otherwise, I think you have it all covered!
    I was already picturing myself in it! Lol!!

  2. Rita, this is absolutely fantastic. I’ve been trying so hard to just get a computer chair and a desk in a back room of the house. Instead, I have to work at the dining table that does not have a comfy chair. Have you ever read about Roald Dahl’s little writing shack he had? I don’t think it was all that nice, but now I am dreaming of the She Shed and how I might design my own. I think you need to add a hot tub, although it could be located right outside the She Shed. My mind is whirling with possibilities. Thank you!

  3. I love this and the wish list you created. I would add a cozy sweater or blanket. Let me know when it’s ready and I’ll come toast to you with some Moscato. 😀
