Happy Sunday !
I'm doing something I said I wasn't going to do .
But what the heck , why not ?
This is the place I spend most of my day in . That's why I call it my sweatshop.
As you head down my gallery hall to the first door on the right , this is what you see.
I know ... It is jam packed with stuff. ( Does this look like an episode of The Hoarders ?)
The Beatles picture above the window was a gift from my son . He remembered me telling him I was a loyal follower back in the late sixties. I love it !
To the right of the door is this area , there are tools here , hammers , screwdrivers , drimmels, wood and metal things on which to paint. and a small desk. close up of such stuff ... Turn just a little and you will find my computer area , where Wannabe Cottage hits the air , and also where I find a lot of inspiration. ( I also pay a lot of bills here .) Next to the computer area is a nook where I keep ribbon , more crafty stuff , and cutter quilts for crafts and dolls.
This is my work table where all kinds of projects happen ,sometimes three or four at a time.
Current dolls being born , this is how it starts .
Above that table in those red and white boxes are patterns I have collected ,and above that a smidgen of the fabric I have.
There is lace and trim there as well as any color thread you might want.
Sewing area and cone threads, the two colors I use the most on the antique thread caddy.
What little bit of wall space I have is covered with pictures of the folks who inspired me in life. My parents in their younger days.
Above the clock is a picture of my late husband's parents on their wedding day., way back in the twenties .
You have to have furry stuff for the critters , and craft paint and brushes for who knows what, and of course the trusty glue gun , and electric pencil sharpener.
More fabric , bins of yarn for doll hair.
Standing by the sewing machine looking back towards the door , you can get a feel for how small the room is. Behind the door in those three storage cabinets is... You guessed it ! More fabric.
Today I am going to link this with Rebecca Ersfild for Vintage living , Studio Sunday.A RE-purposed Life .
