New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to "Kaye Wilkinson Barley"

There are even a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

Project Little Library. Fini!

The little library room is complete.

well, sorta.

I had planned on putting a small writing desk in there, but I think the room is just too small for it, but I'm still thinking.  And eventually there will be a new area rug in there - but not till later.

I was going to use some of the same pictures I had hanging in there when it was a guest room, but that fell by the wayside when I ran across a tube of old posters I had put away years ago.  Some of them hung in my office when we were working at Georgia Tech, so they're pretty old (and look it, I'm afraid), but I love them.  It was like running across old friends.

Especially this one -

My Hero!

Eloise is who I wanted to be when I was a little girl, and I still just love her to pieces.

It just wouldn't do for me to have a library and not have Eloise in attendance, so she hides behind the door so she can pop out and shout BOO! and scare folks when they come in.

Anyhoooo - - -

Here's what it looks like -

My little dream room.

'Course, this only covers books written by authors A through some of G.

The rest of the alphabet meanders throughout the house.

And that's okay, 'cause . . . .

I love this there enough space for a rocking chair? That would be heavenly.

Thanks, Bobbie & Pat!!

I think we're going to love it.

and yep - there is, indeed, a rocking chair in there and it is perfect. It's an old one Donald's parents gave us many years ago. Smooth and well-worn, as well as being well-loved. You can sorta see it in the corner - there's a small signature quilt tossed across the back of it, and a too-large-for-the-chair(but, oh so soft) pillow on it.
