Here is the left side of my Stockbroker house! When cook is done with her meal prep there is always laundry to iron, floors to mop and of course she can always black the stove bits.
Notice the lovely old wooden cradle in the bedroom "bay" that a friend Liz found for me! The cozy "bay" makes me want to sit and read with a cup of tea. Next "bay" down in the kitchen does not "call" me...I've always hated ironing! (smile)
