Welcome to my world....Where Bloggers Create party!!!!!

Welcome to my studio! Please scroll  down to the bottom and don't miss my vintage spool doll giveaway! All you need to do is become (or already be) a follower of my blog. Thanks for the visit today, enjoy the pictures :) Just click on them to see more of the details!





Here's is my giveaway spool doll!


I feel so blessed to have my own studio. I try to incorporate vintage storage whenever I can...it makes me happy to look around and remember where I found each item, or was given it as a gift. I love making collage art and mostly use vintage paper in most of my creations, although I am starting to branch out and use other mediums like fabric and old wood as well. My studio is usually somewhat (o.k., really messy!) but so what? Isn't that what it's for?
Thank you so much for visiting me and have fun visiting everyone else who is participating. I'd love to hear from you so please don't hesitate to comment.....:) And I'll draw a winner on July 20th!!!! But most of all thanks to Karen for hosting this gala again! Just click here www.mydesertcottage.blogspot.com for more fun!!!!

Little Pink Studio said...

Your studio is fantastic! You have the kind of studio that makes you want to wander around and look at all the little details and touch everything!
Love that you use so many vintage items for your storage, I love doing that as well.
I have a question regarding the albums (?) you have your ephemera stored in, can you please tell me what they are exactly? Are they vintage books of some kind? They're gorgeous whatever they are!

Denise said...

Well no wonder we have the same vase! I don't think I saw a single thing in your studio that I wouldn't love to have. I don't know where you find it all (like those vintage clear hat boxes) but it's getting harder and harder to find really great things here. Loved it all. Going back for a second look!

Your studio has such yummy textures and all those fab faded colors - too cool! Fun to see your clever organization uses of your collection especially the shoe organizers full of goodies. My favorite part of the whole space is the string of baby shoes - how cute is that! :D
