Living in my Abyss

So not too long ago I was tagged by the beautiful Esther of rhapsody in boots for a unique post, "Show off your blog workspace."
Here's a little disclaimer: I'm in the process of redecorating my room. It has been a process that has long gone over it's due date, so excuse the ugly dated furniture! Hopefully it'll be done by spring.





- Well obviously the first photograph is the doorway into my room. I've been finding old polaroids from all sorts of years and collaborated it into a collage in the shape of a cross. One of the many things I do when i'm bored-I make things :)
- The second photograph shows off this lovely chandelier I bought online. I was super excited to get it, but to my dismay it turned out being a lot smaller than I expected. Nevertheless, i'm still enjoying it very much. The process of installing the light fixture was a nightmare!
- Ok, so this desk is the worst piece of furniture in my room. I can't wait to get rid of it. As you can see, I have my usual flashcards and smart water (i'm always studying) and my planner, which I would DIE without. These curtains went very well with my room before I began remodeling, I need new ones.
- This doesn't necessarily fall under my blog workspace other that it makes it easily visible for me to see what i'm typing on those late nights. I love this light fixture. You might notice it, it is from Urban Outfitters. I love their furniture!
I'm tagging Elizabeth Marie , Nina (femme rationale), and drollgirl- I can't wait to see your spaces!
Thanks for reading
