Have you heard? There's a party happening over at My Desert Cottage. "Where Bloggers Create"... It's a huge one and I thought it would be a lot of fun to join in and be part of the other 450 crafty gals who would be featuring the spaces where they like to make things. So, if it's your first visit to my little space in Blogland, welcome! Welcome to old friends too! I have a small little space in my house that I can call all my own. It's just off of the kitchen, and a few steps from my kids' playroom. It was once our laundry room. I've just recently moved into this new space from our basement. I can't tell you how much better this works out for me. When you walk into the room, you are greeted by this above your head... My husband's and my initials and angel wings. Of course, I needed a chandelier.... Most of these shots will be detail shots. Like I said, I've recently moved in and things are not as perfect as I'd like them to be.... in time, though. Lots and lots of details in a space like this..... piles of pretty fabrics. This is the epicenter of the entire studio. A large closet with loads of shelving that houses all my things.The wallpaper is vintage and I was really lucky to find some great reproduction brackets in the perfect shade of cream. I try my best to be organized and stay tidy..... that does not always happen. I like to use a lot of baskets.. this one is brimming with trims.More baskets.. these house all my paints and glues.... with a tiny studio, everything is within arms reach.
Glass jars are a must, aren't they?
This is a fun little shadowbox with some things I love.... That's a picture of me as a baby. The window above my workspace.... makes working even more pleasurable. Bits and bobs on a sweet tiered dish and old papers inside a cabinet. These are old shower place cards from the 1940's I found at the flea market a few years ago.... My girls upon a stack of old glove boxes. This picture cleverly covers up the water hook ups from the old washer that once was here. A tiny little corner of my inspiration board.... That's a picture of my mom when she was a baby.A favorite old holy card, rhinestone skeleton key.... I love that old pink resin-type rose, a pretty picture that inspires, a glass glitter loving cup that I got on a little road trip with my husband, my two favorite men at the beach, and there's a picture of my grandparents at their high school prom up there too.... Couldn't leave out the girls, a special sea urchin and my lucky number 13! An old wicker basket with yummy velvets and a chocolate heart box that I embellished stows away other supplies. An old first holy communion veil hangs on the shadowbox... I've got plans for my little girls to wear this when it's their turn. Paper pom poms from my little girls' birthday party two years ago... Rolls of old and pretty wallpaper. I like to keep it out in the open. Much like the rest of my things as they are old and lovely, so why not. And a little dish with trinkets form the flea market. I'll leave you with these little guys! I tried to keep the words to a minimum as there were so many pictures. Happy day, girls! And thank you for taking time to stop by today!
