I’m happy to participate for the second time in Karen Valentine’s great
“Where Bloggers Create” party.
Welcome to my studio!
Since last year I’ve moved some things around. Not the large furniture though. All those pieces just seem to be in the most convenient spots. It’s mainly the decoration that has been changed and I hope you like to take the tour even if you have visited my studio last year.
This is the view from the door. My cutting table consists of two drawer chests that are placed back to back and therefore provide a large work space – hypothetically, lol. Unfortunately it hardly ever looks so clean and is mostly buried under fabrics, lace and paper.
I found this large metal industrial basket some months ago at a scrap yard and knew right away that I had to have it. I use it to store larger fabric and lace pieces.
My glass cabinet holds vintage linen and some baskets that are filled with lace.
I keep wide pieces of lace on this altered clothes hanger.
I exchanged my spring bunting with this one. The burlap I used is very old and solid. I embellished the triangles with lace and buttons. Simple but sweet.
I had taken a picture outside before fixing it underneath the shelf.
I love vintage sewing notions and like to use them as decorations.
Some things I like to create with: Game pieces, faux pearls, small keys and some bling.
Pretty white vintage embroidered monograms.
You might know that I have a thing for numbers and they appear a lot in my studio.
I love vintage eye charts but hadn’t been lucky to find one. Therefore I made one myself. To add a personal touch, I used my blog name.
Some nature finds: Dried thistles, tiny wasp nests, snail shells and a turtle shell. I found everything, except the thistles in our garden.
All the beautiful creations on the rusty rake are gifts from blogging friends and I enjoy them very much.
The shutter and the old suitcases have moved and now stay beside the cabinet, along with my vintage parasol.
The sweet angel doll was created by Dorthe and has a good view point from the top of the cabinet.
I’ve moved my computer from the living room/kitchen area into my studio. It’s not so pretty but more practical.
Almost everything French inspired now has a place on the corner shelf. Most of the things you see here, are gifts from blogging friends who know how much I love the French theme.
Boxes and drawers on my sewing table.
You might remember Maybel from the Dressform Ball in March. She stayed in her ball dress for some months, but now changed into a very light summer outfit that I had made for her out of an undershirt, a deco fishing net and some shells. The corset bag on the wall was a gift from Anneke.
The doll underneath the cloche was another gift from Dorthe.
I’ve redecorated my large white frame and use it now to display my heart collection. Some are gifts from blogging friends and some I sewed myself.
We’re at the end of the tour. Thank you for your visit. I hope you enjoyed it.
Thank you very much for the party, Karen! I’m looking forward to taking a look at all the other studios.
