A Very Vintage Studio
When the weatherman promised me sunshine yesterday for my pictures, he lied. Either that or he and I have different opinions on what sunshine means.
I hurriedly snapped these this afternoon right after I finished a project I was working on. I'm hitting the road tomorrow for my crafty girl weekend and I still have to get packed and get the car loaded but I wanted to post these before I left.
I have a little spruce up project planned in here with a little help from my friend Cath Kidston so I'll be back with that soon. You guys will be sick to death of the studio in no time. Not me. I could live in this room.
This picture above shows what is left of my beloved mercury glass bead collection after what happened in the picture below.
Mayhem. Misery. Destruction. I wiped out almost my entire collection of aqua ball jars and mercury beads. There was a little wailing involved. I have since replenished my collection of beads a little but the healing process is going to be slow.
One of my favorite words, but you knew that.
Some gift wrapping supplies in my favorite box. I'm a sucker for containers especially if they are aqua or chippy. If they happen to be both then I cannot resist.
These are my supplies for my December Daily journal that I've yet to actually start. I'm hoping to catch up on that next week. If not I'm going to give myself permission to try again next year. Simplify.
The aqua and white basket above is from the dollar section at Target. Those holiday Cavallini stamps on the left might just be my favorite stamps ever. You can find them in the Sundance catalog.
A favorite vintage ornament found at a thrift store. It reminds me of the ornaments my mom made and that were sadly lost to me. I mourn them every year.
Another shot of my studio tree. It's filled with small vintage and felt ornaments. I could sit and look at it all day. I made that bird ornament in the background and hope to make more ornaments this year.
Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back next week with lots to share.
