Where Bloggers Create

Well it is party time and here is my post for Where Bloggers Create. I do live in the country in a old farm house, over 100 year old. We have remodeled and built on to it several times. My space had never had any kind of theme or real organization about it. I just had a place to work and after mass creating it would turn into a mess. Most of the time I could not find things I needed. I do many different kinds of art so I needed several places to do different things. I have made many attempts at getting a space that was organized and made me feel good working in it. I tried many different plastic storage containers, just didn't do it for me. No offense to those of you who use them. They just were not what I wanted. I wanted a place that was primitive, shabby and vintage in decor. I needed a space that made me happy. My niece came over and said "you need to display your work in here" this is my space. The only thing is I don't keep a lot of my work. I did display a few dolls I have and thought I should display some of my beading. I wear my necklaces all the time but I thought I would display some of them, I have to many to put them all up. I am thinking about a small tree that I could put up more of my jewelry. This is still in thought process. I am not completely finished but, close. I painted the floor, desk(not finished), cabinets and the tables. I still want to make some rosettes for my table. I am also finishing some art for the walls. I hope to finish some more and post more pictures this week. I would love to know what you think of my space. Enjoy Hugs for now Be sure to click on the link and check out all the blogs.








Behind this door is where my art comes to life!!

Well done! Displaying your stuff is what makes your room so inviting. I agree about the plastic organizers. There are so many unusual and fun ways to collect what matters to us. I use a lot of jars and glass containers. I just love the way it makes the room sparkle. Have fun visiting everyone. Thanks for sharing your space.

Hi Cindy...love where you live and your studio is wonderful! I love the collection of odd pieces of furniture, too..it makes it so much more personal and less like an art store. I have some plastic and am looking to change it out as I don't care for how cold it looks. Thanks for sharing and I hope you will stop by my studio!

I love your space. I like vintage things around me and feel the same way about plastic organizers. The ones that I have are hidden in a closet! Besides, it's more fun to repurpose something vintage. Love your space!

I as well agree about the plastic storage and organizers, rather use old and natural storage shelfs and boxes and what ever I can find. I like how you set everything up in your creative space, its very inviting and comfy and teh light from teh window makes it dreamy, wonderful!!!
