Where I Create...

Welcome to my studio;
I'ts the place you'll usually find me.
A place where I can "perch", and be the "queen".

It hasn't changed too much in this last year, except I think I may have added a suitcase or two for more storage. That's my idea for stashing supplies; trunks, suitcases, "train cases", and hat boxes. I love old luggage and containers, so they are filled with ephemera, prints, paper, ribbon, jewelry findings, sewing supplies, and any number of odds and ends.

This room is my little escape and sanctuary.

Filled with bits and pieces of the things I love.

Mementos from friends

odds and ends...

A place where I create jewelry

and photograph it for my Etsy Shop

Much loved collections...

A place to dream and pray...

and look toward what the future may hold...

full of the familiar and much loved.

A desk full of ideas and inspiration...

and a must-have comfy chair and ottoman.

And what's a retreat unless you can have
your sweet companions there to enjoy it with you?

Hope you enjoyed the visit.

Vintage Inspiration Friday #46: Where Bloggers Create

This is my second time participating in
hosted by the lovely Karen at My Desert Cottage.

Welcome to my studio
It's the place where you can usually find me!

June 2010
(these walls really were not mustard,
but I just couldn't get a good picture in here)

I've made a few changes in here,
the one with most impact was painting the walls a creamy white.
Seeing the photos from last year prompted me to get out the paintbrush.
(I seem to have a small addiction to paint...)

This is my computer station where I do most of my blog.

My vintage worktable...
always piled with ideas for new projects

with old train cases, suitcases, and trunks full of paper supplies.

This sweet satin partial manny is my model for my jewelry photos
 for my Etsy Shop

I use "found items", and old jewelry pieces to create one of a kind key pendants.

Last fall I painted out a cupboard to hold jewelry supplies.

And a chippy shelf holds a variety of fun items.

"watch the birdie!"

Birds are a favorite theme in my studio

I recently put together these altered art hanging photo album pages
with vintage bird graphics.
They'll be in my Etsy store soon.

My over stuffed comfy chair with ottoman and vintage standing lamp

Every studio needs a spot to relax

An old piesafe holds other craft supplies

This is Irma, named for my paternal grandmother
who also models for me.
