A FEW CHANGES IN MY STUDIO 2014 WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE


Welcome to my studio, my peaceful place.
For several years now I have joined Karen at My Dessert Cottage for an annual WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE party.
You can see what my studio looked like last year here, not a whole lot has changed but some small details have.





I join in a lot of ATC swaps, here are the ATC'S I have received from many fantastic artists.
I use an antique sewing cabinet drawer, just the perfect size and besides that, I LOVE these wooden drawers.




My Figgy gave this window to me for Mother's Day, she knows just what I love!





I love vintage wooden rocking horses and vintage children books.









A basket full of trims, I love this stuff!!



The vintage picture of the dancer is a favorite piece of mine.
When I was a little girl I had two of these in my room, LOVE!!!






I love using large lamp shades for storage.



My favorite print of all times.



STASH




All of the items hanging from my ribbon shelf are tags and mixed media books I have received from swap partners, I keep every single one and I treasure them all.



A view from the door.



Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you enjoyed the tour.

Hi Michele!

I love your studio and how you have displayed all your swap items!!!! I have never participated in one but you have inspired me to give one a try!

I think we have several things in common besides nature - buttons, trim, mixed media, childrens books and windows!!!!

Thanks so much for the tour! Romeo and I enjoyed ourselves!
