I wait so patiently all year for this day to come..over on http://mydesertcottage.blogspot.com/
Not so much to really share my creative space, but to explore everyone elses AWESOME creative spaces, every inch of them. And still when I need some inspiration I go back and drool over them again again. I have finally decided to participate, I don't really have a grand studio, but it is all mine. I call it "Shabby" because it is thrown together with scrap wood. I didn't get everything finished as I liked, but this will have to do for this year. So to begin, this is what you will see as you enter in from the door.
This is behind the door.. A few vintage flower girl dresses, and my rake that I turned into a ribbon rack. At the bottom of the picture, I have one of my vintage pillowcase dress displayed.
A close up picture of the rake ribbon rack. Love the pink.
The opposite wall of the door, I have my childhood doll my Grandmother gave me, I have had her since I was 8 years old.
One of my beautiful sweet hats with some needlepoint of my first daughters birth.
UGGG!! Now, I didn't get to organizing these shelves. Iwanted to paint the brown one, but didn't get to.. So here is my mess of fabric. The vintage pieces are on the bottom shelves. The top baskets have ribbon, punches, buttons in jars, etc.
This is my JUNK wall, something I need to work on, but some of my supplies are kept here.
All those suitcases are full of dollies, hankies, notecards, etc. The blue bonnet is my husbands triple great granny. The Chest has all my gift wrapping supplies in it.
My newest addition.. I just love it.
I hung my demo pillowcase dresses in it. Ican't believe I got all 50 dresses stuck in there. More storage underneath them.
All the dresses are full of ribbon, I did get to go thru them and put all the same colors in bags and in the same drawer.
My wall on the right side.
My ironing board table with jars full of treasures underneath.
And of course my eyelet lace. Yummy!

I have these old jewerly boxes filled junk jewerly. I want to paint the brown white or cream. Don't you adore the wicker pocket book..
I store some samples from my Etsy sop in it.

I love my stool. It is sooo heavy.
When I get to come and work/create in my "Shabby Studio" is such a JOY.. I just don't get to do it as much as I would like.
