Come on in......


This post should probably be called "careful where you step." I am finally ready to work in my studio. I cannot work in a mess although without a doubt I create one when I work. However, I must have basic order to return to and I am almost there.

I live in a townhome and was fortunate to be able to turn a large bedroom into a studio. Rarely do we have overnight guests so a Murphy bed is perfect and provides much needed storage for my collection of vintage pottery.

Just outside the door is this painting and a bowl of silk poppies. The soft coral/peach color is a favorite and I have used it in various shades throughout my home.


I have had this pillow door hanger for many years and I think it is nice on the studio door.


I can sit in my chair and look about the room. A project here and a project there.


Years ago I made bears. Two of them sit opposite in a little antique rocker. The keep me inspired. So, for the next few posts i will share some more of the studio and my projects.

Today I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for another Pink Saturday! Please visit and see all the wonderful pink posts.

What darling little bears! You made them you say? Wow. I should not be surprised as you are a very talented crafter, perhaps "artist" is the better word.

I too forced myself into my craft room today, it was still a mess from Christmas time when the Grand-daughters were making toothpick sculptures! I can't get creative until I'm totally organized, so I rarely get creative.Ha!

Oh Carol...I can close my eyes & remember your studio perfectly! I'm SEW glad I got to visit you that winter, so I can visualize where you are, as you create beautiful things. You've added some new & special items to your pretty shelves, I see.

Please give your sweet DH a hug from me & keep in touch? I love seeing your work!

Hugs,
Rett

Hi Carol,
Just stopping by to see how you are. Hope you are enjoying good weather, snowing and very cold here on Long Island. Kept the TV on the shopping channel all day! :)
