This is where I play...

I finally took a picture of my studio space! No before photos... just imagine it without the cupboards either side :) I left the fronts off of bases because why close up a space where I can put more stuff! And I didn't put the plastic handles on the cupboards because I'm sure I can come up with something a little more charming ~ in the meantime, I just leave them ajar so I can open them. The left side is open so you can see how organized I am! Nevermind the boxes and bags just outside the frame of the picture ~ lol :) Sadly, the lighting in that room is pretty bad... there's one little skinny window that faces another building so really no there's natural light. I had to use the flash for this picture so everything that's shiny is reflecting the glare. I usually have a bare bulb hanging from the wire shelf above the table (and, yes, it looks as sad as it sounds ~ lol) but I have a paper lantern shade that I'm 'planning' to prettify to cover it. Maybe I'll do three! In my imaginary, creative world I have hours on end to make all sorts of wonderful things!

Anyway, this is where I play :) I hope you enjoy taking a peek!

That cutie-pie of an apron is a recent purchase from

I did a few close-ups of some of my favorite things :) My apologies for the light deprived photos... these are SO much cuter in person!

Welcome home, camera :)

Lately I've been all excited about taking photos... I see things every day while I'm out and about that I would love to share here. SO, I decided to take my camera with me one day and what did I do? Forgot to bring it home. I left it at my sweetie's mom's house and there it sat for about a week while the wonderous photo ops passed by uncaptured... lol :) I have it back now after arranging a pickup at her workplace ~ yay! I've missed you little camera!

Hopefully I'll have time to take those photos of my studio re-furb over the next couple of days :)

Hey, hey Marie...

I've been awarded The Marie Antoinette Blog Award by southernladysvintage! Whee... my first blog award! Thank you, my dear southern, for passing it along to me ~ I'm tickled pink :) Please take a moment to visit her beautiful blog and I'm sure you would love to see her gorgeous shop on Etsy!

Ok, here are the rules...

1. Please put the logo on your blog

2. Link it to the person from whom you received the award

3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs

4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog

5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them


I am somewhat new to blogging and I must say that choosing 7 was a bit daunting... I thought, "How about 3... ok, 5! Alright, I can choose 7." Then there was, "What if they don't like awards, or Marie Antoinette. What if the Dauphine just isn't their cup of tea? They don't even know me... are they going to think I'm a weirdo for showing up out of the blue and plopping an award on their virtual doorstep?" Please, don't get me wrong... I really, REALLY am tickled to receive a blog award! I tend to be a worrier, bogged down in details, BUT I got over my worries and so I present to you ~ the lovely blogs that I've chosen to nominate :)

I truly enjoy each of these blogs and I hope that, if you have a moment to visit them, you will too :)

November already?

My oh my how the year does fly by! Seems it goes faster the older I get :)

I put up my cupboards and shelving in my studio space and I like it so much! I haven't taken any photos yet though... I'm hoping to get to that today. My sweetie has been on vacation and I haven't had much time to do my own thang this last week. But, he is back to work this week so I should be able to get more done. Is that what it's like when the kids are on school breaks? Egads... I don't know how mom's do it!

Well, that's it for now. Just thought I would pop in to say hello in case anyone stops by ~ lol :)
