Where I Create!




Welcome! Come on in and stay a while!

I have been waiting for this moment for a couple of weeks now! As soon as Karen Valentine announced she was hosting the Where Bloggers Create II, I got right to work! I wanted to move my studio to a smaller room, but just didn't want to move all that junk! So, when I read Karen's blog I knew this was the perfect time for me to get the move on! My daughter helped me paint and the rest is history! I love my new space, it is the same things from the other studio just laid out a little different. I did add the large piece of salvage over the window, and I love it. I hope you enjoy the pics of my studio! After you are done here be sure to go on over and see a list of all the bloggers who are participating and will be showing their studios as well! This is so exciting! I can't wait to see them all!

I'm just gonna let all the pictures do the talking! I have so much stuff crammed in here! As you can see I love a lot of things surrounding me! I have tons of jars filled to the brim with little trinkets just waiting for the next project!


I have started a new blog, same name, Time Worn Interiors, with a different IP address! Make sure you go over and get your name in the pot for some free stuff I'm giving away to celebrate the move! Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll come back soon!

I just clicking the pixs to make them large, then just looked and looked and looked some more at them! I LOVE the old medical cabinet, not too sure about the doll heads though, they tend to scare me! Great architectural pieces mixed in. Again, loved looking at the pictures, think I'll go back and look some more!

Take care, Sue

Jane said...

This was one of my favorite places. I love what you've done in your new studio space. The salvaged piece over the window is just beautiful!! All of the pieces you use for storage and organization are just as your name implies...time worn...and it's a beautiful look. You have such a talent for putting together vignettes and are those really bugs under glass next to where you have the word BUG?
I'm so glad you stopped by my blog for a visit so I could find yours too.
Jane
