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.

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.

Design Your Own Give Away

What a better way to say thank you to all my great bloggy friends,
 and to introduce you to my new Etsy Store,
than to have a

 "Design Your Own" Give Away

 I've been filling up the store with some unique new pieces
 and I'd love for you to go take a peek and see if there is anything that you'd like.

 And the fun thing is this:
 As the winner, you get to choose up to $45.00 in jewelry,
 or let me put together something special;
 "designed" by you!

Here are just a few of the pieces I've been working on:

And because I don't want to miss even one

I'd like you to meet Irma
 in her new vintage attire.

She's been my muse and model for my new Etsy Store.
I not only want you to see the jewelry,
but how it compliments your clothing and
the graceful way it can be worn.

So thank you Kathleen,
for always having the party that makes Wednesdays so special!
I'm your biggest fan!

Now, for the Give Away:

You can have up to 3 entries!

1. leave a comment letting me know you're a follower.

2. Go take a peek at my new Etsy store,

 and find something you'd love.
Then let me know you've been there with another comment.

3. And for a 3rd entry, blog or link back to the Give Away on your sidebar.

Remember to please leave a separate comment for each entry,
as I go by the corresponding number.

Thanks so much for sharing all the bloggy love!

Deadline is midnight August 16!

Hugs and love to you all,
knowing you makes my life so much better!
