I am participating in the talanted Karen Valentine of my desert cottage 2nd annual blog party "Where Bloggers Create" it's a big blog hop, where everyone shows off their creative working areas. Currently this is my studio.. I have some pictures posted as I am sure you have a lot of party hopping to do thanks for stopping by...Let's party!!!
Welcome to my creative nest. I am very fortunate to have such a grand space in my home. This is the upstairs of my house. I converted our upstairs sun room into the family/living space & made my old living room my studio. I have lots of sunlight, large windows and overlook lots of old mossy oak trees, sky oh my feathered friends are everywhere... it truly is Heaven here.. all I need is the ocean. To be honest I find myself creating most of the time on my old kitchen farm table even with all this space one table is enough for me ...this is where I find my inner peace. xoxoxo Laura
come on around the corner...lots to see
sometimes I bottle up all my feelings... here they are!
the lace wall I created using old lace panels, clips & wire.
somethings I do with my old dishes...
I use the top of my long mantel to hold some of my dishes before they get broken ( the other hundreds are in my garage)
using wire I clipped old lace to separate my reading area from the studio
nests are everywhere they store & hold all my ribbons, roses & cards
some of my handmade jewelry, mosaic bird bowls just hanging around a beautiful cage lady my mom gave me for my birthday years ago.
sit down relax I will make you a cup of tea.. take a look around some more..I will do all the talking... so what else is new.
I collect vintage birds, fabrics, nests, old vintage hats, dishes, bottles& lots of ribbons. Well just about everything old & romantic.
my sitting area with all my inspirational books I have collected over the years. I hope to write one one day.
what to do with those wood drying rack... drape doilies & lace of course!
my little antique green enamel table where I solder, make jewelery & make a mess.
one of my favorite finds are these incredible hand embroidered colorful umbrellas from India. I did not know where to put them.. what do you think?
one of my work areas.. that green cabinet is from England it use to store teas.. I love it.
made from an old window I have had this cabinet for about seventeen years. I have a thing for old cabinets. I store some of my favorite antique fabrics here & my old tins.
I love my very long cabinet I had made out of old windows from a farm house here in Ocala I use this to store ribbons, boxes, fabric, buttons .. lots & lots of goodies.
Well I guess it's time to take a seat & start another unfinished project..oh don't leave I love having you around.. have another cup of my tea or just stop back soon as I am redoing my studio this summer. Thank You for stopping by & seeing where my heart & soul will always be !!!! xoxo Laura
