A Little Peek Into My Studio

Hello my dear friends,

remember my little garage sale shelf ? Well, it inspired me to finally start reorganizing  my studio.

At the moment it is a total mess so I will only share a few photos.




The shelf above is fairly new and I love the drawers.



Yes, all the drawers are full:) I think I need more space.

Right now I’m painting  drawer cabinets which are on my worktable and should have been painted years ago.

Isn’t it amazing what a little shelf can do?


A few weeks ago I received the most wonderful surprise in the mail from my friend Lynne @ Adorn

Look what dear Lynne spoiled me with for my birthday. 


This beautiful wall hanging – so very French and shabby chic. Just Lynne’s style and she knows how much I love it.

It found a lovely spot in my studio.


Dear Lynne also included this lovely journal. The perfect size for traveling and it will earn a lot of traveler miles:)


Look at the beautiful hand stamped ribbons, lace and lace flowers. Dear Lynne, thank you so very much – I love it  all.

I feel so very blessed to have such wonderful and talented friends.

Also a warm welcome to my new followers it is great to have you here.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.

Have a wonderful weekend,dear friends.


Hugs and love,

As much as you create, I think your studio should be a mess! You wouldn't be having so much fun if it wasn't. The bits you did share look great! Sweet gifts! Enjoy the day. Tammy

Ah, Marie, I see a slanted ceiling. Does that mean you have a little "atlier" where you create? Did I spell that correctly? A garret perhaps? Like where Jo March wrote her novels! It looks charming!!

Hugs, Diane

On to the weekend . . . enjoy!
