    Men have their 'Man Caves', so what can we call our space??

    I have often wondered what we ladies can call our personal spaces.In my case it's my sewing/quilting/embroidering/crafting room...

    Woman Cave just doesn't sound feminine at all to me..
    Soooooo, ladies what can we call our spaces??

    'Ladie's Lair',...hmmmmm..... this sounds a bit Cougarish lol
    Any great suggestions we can all come up with to give a label to our spaces??

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I have always referred to my quilting room as " A room of ones' own". Borrowed from Virginia Wolfe.

    The KITCHEN!! I love that men must have space in the house now. they used to have to go to the garage or the shed outside. or the den if they had money. Now they have spaces! the whole house is ours. to clean, tidy up, etc.

    My immediate thoughts are the same as nativetexan's, my husband has built a detached garage and two large shed for all his stuff, plus we over-sized the garage, built a heated large workshop and he has his basement full of stuff! I have hinted for adding on a sewing room for me and I get poo-pooed! He says I can take over one of the bedrooms upstairs which would never work, my 5 dogs will follow me and it would be up and down stairs all day instead of sewing, they go in and out all day! So I have my corner of the kitchen/heath room. Nativetexan, I agree, the space I am responsible for is the entire house!

    My kids have referred to my sewing space as the "Mom Cave" for years, even before Man Cave became popular!

    I call my room 'The Rippit Room' I collect frogs and they are in my sewing room. Have a picture of a frog, holding a seam ripper & a piece of fabric.

    I kind of like "Mom Cave" but also "Quilter's Haven" but my 1st choice is still Mom Cave.

    As my sewing room/area is in the basement, I made a sign using wood blocks I found at a craft store. Painted each one a different color and attached them to a wood placque. So now when you enter into my domain, you're entering into Suz's "Toy Room".

    I do believe Virginia would more than approve. Every woman needs one! Thank you.

    Mine is usually referred to as the basement....but I call it my studio! Unfinished, but it does have a huge door wall, great view and all my favorite stuff in it!
