Where Bloggers Create

and welcome to my humble studio

 This is how it looks like through the door.
I have to tell you , this is a VERY little studio.
About 6 x 13 feet - that´s all

My work table is in front of the window
with lots of light

On the left side of my work table
is the only free wall space I have
so this is my inspiration wall.
Filled with beautiful creations from special friends
and some of my own creations waiting
to travel out in the world.

On the right side of my worktable
is my cabinet
holding finished creations
and my little collection of Collectible Bears.

Old books
coin purses
and cupcake molds on my table

Heres´a look at the other end of my studio.
See - no wall space.

I have to use all the storage space I can get
to have room for everything.

Lets have a closer look
at some of the shelves.

Old cigar and tin boxes.
Ready to be altered

Old books to use in my creations

Here´s a little collection of what I love
A few bears from my collction
Old cabinet cards
Vintage molds and lace

Vintage music sheets
Burlap, twine

Love creative books and magazines
and have tons of them

grain sacks
and a pretty french box filled with lace

More lace
If you have visited over here before
you´re not surpriced by now - right...

Glass jars with pretty stuff.
lace, vintage buttons, wooden spools

Here were a few more shelves with
linen and lace.


I´m working on bears right now
so here´s a little bunch sitting on my
worktable all ready waiting for more fiends to join
before the show in London in September.

This is how it looks like at my place.
I hope you have enjoyed the little tour.

Old books and tins -- two of my favorite things to collect! And I love filling jars with things. One of my latest is full of acorns my son collected last fall on our walks.

I hope you'll have time to visit my spaces...

Hello ... I found my way here from the trail of lace scraps you left behind at the Full Tilt Boogie. I enjoyed the tour of your creative space and am quite pleased that you allowed me to rifle through your fascinating collections. Your bears are delightful as are your lace altered books. I signed up to follow you so I can return for more leisurely visits.
