I have put my finest party dress on for this years edition of "Where Bloggers Create 2012". This year I added an entire wall of shelves and some gorgeous Cath Kidston chintz wallpaper. Big changes. Come on in and take a peek...
These shelves continue to serve as the central storage solution and focal point for so many of my vintage finds. All the bread tins hold fabric, felt, ribbon, greeting cards, and more.
You will find millinery in the lamb doll trunk, map pins in the doll dresser, stamps in the wicker baskets and playing cards in the tool box.
The freshly painted hutch holds packing supplies for my shop while the corner cabinet keeps my fabric bolts handy.
There is no color scheme to speak of so anything vintage goes. A favorite hankie garland hangs on a vintage laundry line.
More shelves for fabric and pattern books. Vintage kiddie records decorate the door frame with curtain pins.
Betsy (the dress form) nestles in between the shelves ready to display the next creation.
My big pink harvest table (salvaged from years of wear and tear in the kitchen) doubles as the cutting station, sewing central and paper crafting palace.
The art work has a tendency to revolve in my room as seasons change so I hang them on the wall with 3M removable strips.
Surrounding myself with my favorite artist work inspires me to create. This mini quilt made by Janelle Wind, clip boards via Magpie Ethel, pin cushions from Beths Bagz, small dress form from Georgia Peachez, glittered creations from Kim K. and so many more.
A pink rug graces the floor for the three dog that often fight for space under my feet.
My love affair with shelves doesn't end with the kind that perch on the floor.
If I can't stitch a vintage item the next best thing is to re purpose it.
Silverware tray to book display.
Crayon box to fat quarter keeper.
Handy Andy tool box to sewing trim storage.
These are all ideas I have soaked up from this wonderful blogging community. The ingenuity, creativity and generosity overflows. A huge thank you to Karen for hosting again this year and to you all for stopping by my favorite little place in the world.
Now pop over and see all the other wonderful creative spaces.
