Where Bloggers Create 2012

For the first time I’m participating in Karen Valentine’s wonderful blog party “Where Bloggers Create”.  I’m very happy to share my new studio with you and hope you enjoy the tour. Besides some creations you might already know from my blog, you’ll also see a few new ones as well as a lot of fabulous pieces created by blogging friends all over the world. The studio would not be the same without those gifts hanging on the walls, sitting on shelves etc.
I’ve used the upper part of an egg carton to create this studio sign. I just love to recycle and upcycle.

I sewed that pillow just some days ago. It was my first ruffled one. For years I had been intimidated by that big, complicated looking ruffler foot. After watching a video on the internet how to use it, I gave it a try and it was so easy-peasy. You’ll probably see more ruffled items here in the future :-).

The lace collars are flea market finds and I think they look quite lovely hanging on the shutter.

Some pieces of furniture could escape my brush and the white paint. This old apothecary drawer chest is one of them.

The steampunk fish collage on the left wall had just recently been finished.  The cool image came from The Graphics Fairy.

A girl needs stuff to play with, right? Here are some supplies like buttons, game pieces and vintage embroidered monograms on a three-tiered tray.

Some jars filled with fabric flowers and threads.

The pretty cold cream graphics on the left and the right jar also were provided by Karen, The Graphics Fairy. Thank you, Karen!
I have a thing for numbers. You’ll find quite a few of them in my studio. Another reoccurring theme is “Paris”.


I keep all of my vintage white bed linens in this cabinet, along with some doilies and laces.

My collection of vintage photographs and postcards.

 On the shelf you can see some of my favorite flea market finds.

I love the chippy mirror. I had picked it up at the sidewalk trash last year.

When I’m in the studio, Cecil likes to lay underneath my sewing table. During the photo shoot he all of a sudden decided to change the location and hopped onto my cutting table like he wanted to have his picture taken.

A found piece of brick painted white and turned into a brush holder.

My mannequin and more numbers …

 We visited a friend in his workshop, when I spotted a little shabby cabinet with a broken glass window. When I asked if he would still need it, he said “no, you can have it”. I substituted the glass with chicken wire and instead of hanging it vertically like it was supposed to, dear hubby helped me putting on 4 wheels. It looks like a little train wagon now, don’t you think?


I love vintage suitcases. The lower two were gifts from dear hubby.

Thank you for visiting me here in my refuge. Please don’t think that it always looks so neat. By the time you read this post, I might already have made a big mess again, LOL. It only takes one little project … Additionally I have to admit that I’ve put away my ironing board to get nicer pictures. Well, I guess you all know too well how such a thing looks like … ;-).
Thank you, Karen for hosting this great party again!
Have a wonderful weekend everybody and have fun visiting a lot of exciting studios!

Tina said...

It´s so wonderful to see your studio Dear Julia - it´s so pretty. I love that you have so much white in there and all that wonderful stuff to create with - awesome.
Love all you cabinets too. It sure looks like a wonderful room to create in.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Oh Julia...your studio is beautiful...I wanted to just jump through and see it in person. I was surprised with the picture of the 127 number...that is our house number..so cute!
I enjoyed the tour so much!

Dear Julia
I enjoyed my leisurely stroll around your studio which is exquisite. I stopped to peek into the cabinets, to feel those creamy buttons run through my fingers and I was very naughty as I touched all that luscious lace (maybe I will not be allowed to visit again!!!).
Thank you for opening the door to your Studio which for me has been inspirational as it is brimming with beauty.
As I turned to leave your Studio it was rather strange but there seemed to be a vintage suitcase in both of my hands LOL.

Leanne said...

This is such a beautiful and restful space Julia. There's so much stuff but it doesn't overwhelm, that's a gift.

Boxwood Cottage said...

Oh my dear Julia I just knew I would love your new space right away and so it is! It's absolutely gorgeous and I can see why you love it so much! I just wish I was as tidy and organised as you and have your sewing skills! My fave shots are the ones with the apothecary drawer cabinet, the white cabinet with the glass doors, the big willow basket and the small baskets and of course Cecil :)
Now I have to go and study all your pictures again!
Sending you very happy WBC wishes down to Albania! You miss out on nothing much here my dear because it is a very rainy and windy Summer in northern Germany.
Hugs to you my friend!
xoxo~ Carola

Julia! I love every corner and nook and cranny of your workspace. It is so neat and tidy..and I'm sort of partial to that....it's so peaceful and conducive to creativity.

I love buttons...and all your laces..and numbers and scrabble letters and blocks....your vintage lace spools are delicious sitting in that bowl! I think I'll go back over your photos once again. too yummy!

ciao bella
I'm also on the link to WBC....stop by if ya wanna!

Hello my dear sweet friend,
I am so excited to be here visiting you like this.
Everything about this gorgeous creative space reflects "You" and who you are.
I'm just picking up my jaw so am a bit speechless at present. I think I need to tell you face to face just how much I love everything you have "created" here - there is so much beauty to comment on I shall have to come back again and again!
Much love and big hugs,

Mosaic Magpie said...

Oh my gosh I'm feeling faint. This is more beautiful then I even imagined Julia. I love all your little details and how everything seems to have it's place. Seeing the things that you have shown in your past posts is so fun to see. I love your linen cabinet and how neatly you've arranged the vintage laces.
Cecil is a gorgeous boy and should be photographed for every post. He reminds me of Bella by the look of his thick coat...of course they are not the same color:) but same beautiful face.
Oh Julia may I pin these? I need some motivation for my studio and this might just be what I need to get some fire up my b**t!!!

congrats on a great job,

Oh süsse liebe Julia, dass ist ja total wunderschön.
How beautiful a room, you have created for yourself, my dear.Everything is gorgeous, and I love that you have a few pieces still not painted, gives the room a feeling of old charm beauty and cosynes.And every little piece so wonderfully displayed, and put to rest in baskets and your lovely old furnichures. I love your "train wagon",- typewriter,-suitcages,and so pretty vignettes all over.
You must feel so relaxed and happy in this magical room, liebste, here is quiet and amazing beauty all over, to give joy to your soul and eyes. No wonder Cecil loves to be there with you. The corner with your mannequin is stunning, as is every spot in this new lebens raum of yours.

Amazingly gorgeous space! Enjoyed my visit

Anonymous said...

Wowie! Super stuff and arranged so pleasingly. Love the wicker silverware tray employed as a drawer divider & the 3 tier wicker server filled w/goodies. The chicken wire shelf turned wagon is adorable! A girl could play in that room 4ever. Why don't you find a vintage looking wooden iron board...I am sure you would hussy it up so you could leave it in the photos?!

Lovey said...


Lululiz said...

When can I move in? I think if I ever set foot in that absolutely amazing studio, you would never get me to leave again. Your photographs are wonderful, I could spend ages just looking at those an soaking up all the gorgeous details. What am I saying, I could... I AM, lol.

Maureen said...

Wow, Julia, what an incredible studio! I adore all the vintage pieces and the way you've organized it all perfectly. Thank you for letting us visit!

marda said...

What a lovely wonderful warm creative inviting space you've created. It's a beautiful place to spend hours in. Glad you finally decided to try out the ruffler... I use mine a lot. It is a bit daunting at first, but if I need miles of ruffles..that's the way to go. Thanks so much for inviting us into your studio.

Blessed Serendipity said...

Hi Julia,
I love your studio space. Everything looks so pretty. Love the way you store your lace. Thanks for sharing. I am showing my space at the party too. I would love it if you would come for a visit.


Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Julie, your studio space is so dreamy. So beautiful. So organized. I bet it was lovely when you were unpacking and putting everything in its place. An egg carton never, ever looked so good. Love all your upcycling -- the brick with brushes looks fabulous, and the chicken wire cabinet is perfect! Have a wonderful day! Tammy

Viola said...

You have such a beautiful space, Julia! Everything I wish my space could be! Love the furniture pieces you have. All those drawers make everything so organized. Love the light colors. I will be painting my two tables in an antique white before the year is over and I'm hoping it makes my windowless room seem a bit brighter. I love all your pretty jars and that tiered stand! Your inspiration board is such a pretty frame. You must be so happy creating in this space! Thanks for sharing your tour!

I popped over from my friend Marie's (Spun By Me)blog and I can see why she was overwhelmed! Not only do you have a beautiful space but your diplays are so clever! Love the shutter with the collars and oh how I lust over your crocheted laces!! Thanks you for letting us all press our noses against the window for a peek!

Diane said...

I just can't get enough of your wonderful photos and work area, Scrolling through them looking at every little detail. Yes, I have even picked up my magnifier to be sure I don't miss a thing :-D
Thank you for your great blog I look forward to each and every post.

Your space is so amazingly wonderful! So well thought out, and it was fun seeing how it all came together for you......it's obvious you've worked really hard (but have had a lot of fun) putting it just how you want it!

Dear Julia,

How very beautiful your new studio is, everywhere you look you have made the perfect place for you to create and sew. Love all the romantic cream, lace and beautiful treasures you have displayed so beautifully.
I can see why Cecil would be happy to be sitting in the gorgeous room.
The apothecary chest, your steampunk collage and the old trunks are fabulous.
Thanks for showing us around your studio and have a great week


CLD said...

Your space is just lovely. So many pretty things. Everything is so sweet and just displayed so perfectly. Your creations are amazing. I have enjoyed my tour of your new studio. I can't wait to return to see what you have created next. Best Wishes, Bobbie

Little Miss Maggie said...

All right. Your space is making me green! GREEN w/ENVY. I'll be showing my space today which is a severely cleaned up version and it doesn't look like yours at all. Looking at your studio gives me something to strive for. Maybe next year I can be half way between my current space and yours.

Robin said...

You have a beautiful studio with so many gorgeous things. I also love your chippy mirror. Have a great week.


Jennifer Pearson Vanier said...

What a wonderful space!! I love how you have all that glorious trim and lace organised!

Hallo liebe Julia,
ich bin sprachlos.....Dein Studio ist ein TRAUM.....damit müsstest Du unbedingt in das "Where Women Create" Magazin. All diese zauberhaften Arrangements....ich werde mir die Bilder noch viiiiele Male anschauen....entdecke ich doch immer wieder was Neues.
Da steckt so viel Liebe drin....einfach nur schön.
Liebe Grüße in die Ferne,

Rostrose said...

Liebstige Julia,
kannst mir bitte eine Kopie dieses Zimmers hierher beamen? Das ist ja das absolute Wahnsinns-Studio!!! Wobei mir natürlich schon angesichts deiner "Kreationen in klein" recht klar war, dass dein Arbeitsraum wohl eher ein Arbeits-Traum ist... und gewiss von Phantasie nur so strotzt. Und RECHT hatte ich! :o) Ich bin von so vielem begeistert, von den Gläsern und Krägen und den feinst geschlichteten Spitzen, von der Schneiderpuppe - und ganz besonders süß finde ich dein kleines "Waggon"-Schränkchen mit dem Kaninchendraht-Fenster! Und natürlich Cecil mit seinem schrägen Grinser :o)
Ich drück dich ganz herzhaft und sag DANKE für deine lieben Zeilen!!! Auf bald, viele Küschelbüschel und Pfötchenwinker und Kätzchenkrauler,

Ivy and Elephants said...

Julia, everything looks amazing! Oh, to have such a beautiful space to work! But I'd probably just sit there staring and grinning like a fool. LOL

Hi, found you via suzy your studio is a work of art in itself, each photo more lovely than the next. A real visual feast. Jayne x

Rostrose said...

Herzallerliebste Julia, ich besuche dich jetzt einfach nochmal in deinem wunderschönen Studio, um dir Danke zu sagen für deine lieben Kommentare - und hab ich dir übrigens auch schon gedankt für deine Tipps in Sachen Zuckerdosen-Nadelkissen??? Vermutlich nicht, ich bin mir aber nicht 100%ig sicher, was nicht gerade für meinen Geisteszustand spricht ;o) Da ich ja auch keine wirkliche Näherin bin, wird es vermutlich noch eine halbe Ewigkeit dauern, aber eines Tages mach ich was in der Richtung, ich besitze ja immerhin zwei Augarten-Zuckerdosen ohne Deckel :o) (so superschön wie deine sind sie allerdings nicht... sie haben keine Henkel...)
Und hab ich dir schon zur Katzenschar geschrieben? Ich bin mir sicher, dass das ein umwerfend süßer Anblick sein muss, überall die kleinen, entzückenden Tapspfoten. Gehören die jetzt alle so richtig zur Familie? Oder mehr zum "Freundeskreis" ;o)
Ich knuddle all die Süßen jedenfalls herzhaft, hoffe sehr, dass du dich schon etwas mehr einleben konntest und lass dir ganz herzliche Rostrosengrüße da!!!!!!
Alles Liebe, Traude

Lisa said...


It's been such a busy summer with the kids, I haven't blogged or even made anything. But I just got the new 'Home' because I knew you were in it & I had to congratulate you! Wow Julia, it's beautiful. They did a great job photographing it. I'm so proud for you.

Your studio is breathtaking. I feel like a big slob looking at it. Now that's a studio I could create in. It's a piece of art in itself. I love how you have your lace organized. (mines in a big suitcase just smashing together) I'm honored to see a couple of things I've made in there with the other wonderful creations. I love it all! Now I think I'll go straighten up mine:)

PS I really need your new address.

Unknown said...

Hi beautiful studio! Very inspireing working on mine! Where did you found the cute white handles on the small little six drawers small desk! I have an Ikea one that I painted and would love those little handles!

Dreaming of Vintage said...

You have a gorgeous studio Liz! I loved taking a peak and very clever idea with the brick!

Your work is so inspiring, love vintage so much and all your lovely photos takes my breath away. especially love the jar with the buttons and the frames and.. well EVERYTHING.. gorgeous

Gypsy Threads said...

I believe we must have been separated at birth, or at least cousins! I just discovered you and am totally in love with everything that is YOU. Don't panic, I am not a stocker (lol)! That said I do look forward to your posts. I must admit to drooling over each photo and now I don't feel so guilty about the laces and buttons which grace my creative space. Thank you for sharing!

Stella said...

Hi, I just discovered your blog, and I congratulate you because it is an absolutely delightful place! I love your style and post you do, great!! An adorable site if I may I link to my blog, and I am your follower.Grettings from Spain

Olga Siedlecka said...

I have no words, this is absolutely breathtaking place...

Rostrose said...

Liebstige Julia, ich bin mal wieder bei dir vorbeigekommen - und gar nicht mal um zuschauen ob es schon wieder was Neues von dir gibt, sondern ich wollte mir noch einmal die Fotos von deinem Studio ansehen. Es ist dermaßen schön und inspirierend, und wenn es mir gelänge, auch nur ein Winkelchen in meinem Zimmer so gekonnt zu gestalten, wäre ich schon stolz auf mich... Außerdem gibt es hier so viel zu sehen, dass ich es bei einem einmaligen Besuch gar nicht erfassen könnte. Heute ist mir z.B. erst der kreativ eingerichtete Setzkasten aufgefallen. Ich glaube, ich werde hier noch öfter mal herkommen, um mich inspirieren zu lassen. Und dir lasse ich allerliebste Rostrosengrüße da (ich versteck sie so zwischen der Spitze, dass sie gut für dich zu finden sind :o)) und dem Cecil sowie den putzigen Gastkatzen in groß und klein schicke ich die allerliebsten Streicheleinheiten mit!!!
Viele liebe Küschelbüschel, Traude

This would be a dream space for me. I love just about all the same things, although I am not lucky enough to own them as you do. I don't even know where to begin it is all so breathtaking. The vintage suitcases, the linens, the laces, the furniture, everything is so romantic, so shabby chic, so soothing!

Thank you for sharing this gorgeous space with all of us. I have already become a follower of your blog and I intend to get check out your Etsy shop and some of your other posts as well.

da ich endlich mal wieder etwas Zeit habe musste ich mir noch unbedingt diesen Post bei Dir ansehen. Das habe ich jetzt seeeehr ausgliebig gemacht und bin schlicht und weg einfach sprachlos. Wohl so ziemlich das traumhafteste Kreativ-Zimmer, das ich je gesehen habe. Cecil muss sich ja wie im Himmel fühlen. Du hast es mit so viel Liebe zu jedem klitzekleinen Detail eingerichtet. Einfach hinreissen. Viele liebe Grüße

I have looked at almost every room from Where Bloggers Create, what a treat, but I think I love yours the best. Just awesome. I loved the white frame with the little hangars and pictures inside. Where did you get them? So sweet. Thanks

J' adore votre studio, un bel endroit pour avoir l' inspiration de vos superbes créations. Vos dentelles sont bien rangées, les miennes elles sont un peu en désordre.

I just took a stroll through your studio. It reflects your art very much and therefor must also reflect you...beautiful. I enjoyed oohing and aahing over every littel thing. I'm glad I finally got a chance to visit!

Liebe Julia,
eine kleine, mit Zuckerguss überzogene creative Oase hast du dir da geschaffen. Bezaubernd und wunderschön hast du es in deinem Atelier. Ich bin völlig verzaubert und kann mir die Bilder immer wieder anschauen.
Wirklich entzückend und all die liebevollen Habseligkeiten, die du das zusammengetragen hast. Eine kleine Schatzkammer.

Alles Liebe wünscht die Babsi
