Where I Create

Shelly, from Sweet Pea
was telling me the other day that several bloggers had been posting pictures of their studios, Where They Create! So I figured I would do the same. My studio used to be in the Red Room of my house, but I out grew that space. The Sun Room has tons of light and it makes you feel good just being in that room! So several months ago I moved everything into that room. From the Breakfast Room it looked a little junky, so I put up a cable and hung some curtains, but I never really like them. About a month ago we bought some fabulous garage doors that would separate the Sun Room from the Breakfast Room. Yesterday we brought them in the house and I love them! Now my studio feels like a separate room. I thought you might enjoy seeing pictures of my studio................
Where I Create!

Of course I have tons of stuff that helps my creative process flow!
I know it looks junky!

From the breakfast room looking in.

Don't you love this chair, not a very good picture.
I got it from Jackie of Bliss Farm!

Hats on the foam heads,
the white one that looks like a swimming cap
is actually my grandfathers welding cap.
And the black hat was his Sunday go to meeting hat.

Got this great metal shelf for $20!

Projects in mid stream.

There you can see another picture of the great doors.

The picture in the globe is my grandmother (right) and her sister.
The white dove was from her funeral.

Did I ever tell you I love bugs?

Booth Work

The last couple of months our mall space has been doing well! And while I was gone things got a little empty in there! So yesterday day we took a load up and rearranged the booth. Thought you might like to check out some of the changes. Every thing you see is for sale, so if you take a liking to anything just let me know!

Shopping Iowa

Sharon and Lorie's shop is so cute! It is small but it's large on display! They have fun stuff every where. It took me a long time to see everything! Yes! I got some goodies there!

at Sisters Garden
(two shops in one stop)
I found a few things at Sisters Garden and Bloom. I enjoyed the displays here as well!

Manley's doesn't have a blog. But the store is fabulous. They have a good eye for little details and and great quality merchandise!

Summer Brimfield 2009

I want to thank everyone who wished me well for the show, I think it worked! We had a great show, it's the first time we've ever sold out and packed up on Friday night! Set up was stress free, mostly because I didn't take zillions of smalls, so this made things easier to pull together in a short time. I think we had just the right amount of things. I am very grateful to everyone who came out to support us!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! Like I said, it's not a grand production, just a few things thrown together!

I didn't even take the time to get out any books for added interest!

Home at last!

We got home at 11pm tonight! I am so happy to be home! It's true what they say, THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME! We had a sold out show (thank goodness) and a fast and furious buying trip to Iowa! So after 3000 miles and 12 days in a 23 ft. travel trailer with Craig and 2 dogs, you can see why I am so happy to be home again. I can't wait to show you pictures of the show and the places we went shopping in Iowa!

On The Road Again

Photo: My House

We are leaving in the morning for Brimfield and won't be back for a couple of weeks! After the show we are going to Iowa on a shopping trip! I get to see Sharon's new shop, White!

I can't wait!

I can't believe it! We pulled it off! A months worth of work done in two weeks! Two very stressful weeks, but I'm pretty sure we are ready! We are leaving a couple of days early so we can stop and shop along the way! Maybe I can find some good junk! Can't wait!

Sweet Pea Collection

As promised here are a few pictures of Gloria's side of Winnie and Tulula's. I have so many good pictures but for some reason I can't get them to load right. Here are a some that were turned the right way! Gloria's displays are to die for, she is the Queen of decorating and her bedding is fabulous!

I am working like a crazy woman trying to get ready for Brimfield! That's why I haven't been blogging much! I miss looking at blogs and leaving comments, just don't have time right now! Hopefully things will start to fall together in a few days and I can get back to normal!

Enjoy these pictures of Sweet Pea Collection!
