Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. This is the room where I make all the magic happen. I literally took over the game room upstairs and here it is. It's a mixed up collection of many things gathered along the journey of 38 years of life together. It's not coordinated, or decorated nicely, but it's my home away from home, and I love it.
That's not to say I wouldn't change anything, but when I am in this magical place, I don't think about changing the decor, because my mind is on simply creating something beautiful.
A computer table along with a desk from the 1970" give me lots of space for my machines and scrap booking supplies.
This is the table I use for cutting fabrics, sugaring faux treats and painting. Behind this table is an antique cabinet that was purchased in Maryland in the early 2000's that I found at an auction. I have often thought of painting this piece, but just never seem to find the time.
The view from behind my cutting table. Of course I have to have a T.V. to keep my head clear.
This maple table and chairs once belonged to my in laws. I can still see my father in law sitting in the kitchen sipping coffee and reading the morning paper. I now use this for wrapping your pretty goodies and getting ready for the mail. I could not part with this, it has my heart.
The desk where I create my tags and do much of my handwork. Sometimes you can find me sitting on the sofa behind, just chilling.
You have to have an assortment of scissors and other fun items too.
My first sewing machine. I still use this today and I received it in 1972. It may not be fancy, but it runs as good as ever.
A newer model where I sew most items from. This enables me to do many more stitches and fancy ones too!
A sweet wooden box that holds lots of goodies. Doesn't everyone have one of these?
Just some of my ribbons that I use for tassels and wrapping sold items.
Love those storage boxes and can't get enough. The sewing box on the right was a wedding gift from many, many years ago. Gesh, time flies!
I am not a painter by any stretch of the imagination, but I love to make faux treats and you have to have paint.
Supplies for my stained glass projects.
Markers and other necessities.
Would you like to sit and chat awhile? I have some great reading material for you.
Lots of storage, seems that's the one thing I never have enough of. sigh
Love, love, love this book. Lots of great information on many talented women. If you haven't read this, you should.
Happy Pink Saturday everyone. Thank you once again sweet Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for hosting this each and every week.
This week I have another tassel for you, made from a vintage spindle. Hope you like it. Springs colors and beautiful ribbons can be found on my website someplace in thyme.
