Shadow Shot Sunday - again

Since I once again posted but forgot to link, and because I really like this shot, I am repeating last week's Shadow Shot.  So if you did happen to come across it last week by mistake, then you don't have to look.  If not, check it out:

And here, again, is the description:
In our house we have a living room that we don't use, which flows into a corner off the kitchen which we called our dining room, which flows into the family room, which we do use. A while back, we had a bigger than usual family dinner and decided to put the dining room table and chairs in the living room and open up the leaves (leafs?). We all enjoyed it so much, we left it there and made the living room our dining room. You with me so far? We took an antique desk and old chair from the master bedroom and put them in the "old" dining room, along with the fan I use to cool off our itty bitty kitchen, and the dog treat cabinet which was already there. The idea was for me to utilize the desk instead of the kitchen counters to keep all my lists and other crap organized.

So far so good.

Then along comes Christmas.

We didn't want to move all the living room now dining room furniture to put the Christmas tree in the front window, so we moved out the 50's cocktail bar temporarily into the garage, and moved the desk and chair and fan to that spot, leaving the "old" dining room open for the tree. Turned out great and we could all see it from the family room.

So what does this have to do with shadows? you ask. The other day when we actually had a little sun between cold fronts, I had just finished removing the tree : ( and the sun was pouring into the living room window and it put the desk, chair, and fan back in the "old" dining room. (photo was inserted here : )
 
It really tickled my photography fancy. Hope it was good for you too (especially after the long read). Peace and pouring sunshine to you. B : )

A very well description. Perfect for me to see the whole house (even jst in my thoughts) §;-)

Thanks for giving me the hint how your house looks like.

It looks you had a wonderful day overthere. This corner is a warm welcoming part of your great room.

Happy SS and have a blissful day.

Hehe. Liked the way your picture 'developed'! I was thinking of settling down at your desk with the fan on to do my bills.

I'm totally confused but the SS is great and I love the color of the room.

I do like it, the red walls glow next to the shadows. I'm always trying to find was to make the best use of the rooms in my house and haven't figured it out yet.
The cold in the south and the west has caused a lot of hardship for farmers and frustration for the home gardner. I heard last night that there has been a heat wave in the arctic. Go figure.

What a pretty, glowing room, and great SS! Glad you reposted. :) I hope by now all that frost is gone in your area! We're thawing in St Louis--but winter is sure to come back. Have a great new week! Blessings!
