Thanks for coming by...and a big thank you to Karen Valentine at MyDesert Cottage for hosting this bash.
Let me start out by saying it is bitter sweet that I have spent the last 16 days moving my studio into its current location...the room belonged to my son who is in his 18th day of Marine boot camp. Yes, I am counting the days until we see him again...his first move from home....so you will find many unfinished projects in the studio...but as it should be...right?
I have been collecting vintage trouble lights and will be hanging them down between the springs to spot light the project that I have in the works.
and the journal wall begins........
A couple of the studio muse!
I bought this painting at the Rosebowl flea market.... I knew that it needed to find a home in the new studio...I have researched the artist but have not found anything yet...it is date 1889
Drawers....I need them....I must have them....I am crazy about them....there I said it! I think when I die my ashes should be tucked in a drawer of an old trunk...
Music..old school style
The 3 journals on the left were made for me by my daughter Ivy...I think she is quite talented...she doesn't think so...she is wrong! The other journal was made for me by Pam Garrison...it is so neat I don't want to write in it...I know that I must!
Cameras and art supplies....need I say more?
Here is where you will find me melting glass, and making beads. You may never see it this clean....ever!!!! but that is a good thing...really!
a peek inside a drawer............
A color study for a necklace in progress.
yummy beads awaiting there place in the necklace.
glass waiting to become beads......
Major project, just installed last night. The story of this mantel tells a little about who I am..Me at a garage sale..."what a great mantel....how much is it ?" garage sale lady..."hmmm, my husband doesn't want to sell it." "Where is he?" "he left for the store....you really like it?" "I beyond like it!" "Well, if you can get it out of here before he comes back it is yours!" Picture here the Roadrunner placing a fireplace mantel in back of a van!!!! Yep...that is how fast I got this mantel in the van and was out of there. Now mind you it was sans mirror....this one picked from a neighbors trash.....picture here grumbling husband! Sans mantel shelf....scraps of a little bit of this and that....with molding from Habitat Restore waiting in the garage to be added.
So thank you kindly for your visit....I'm off to the Farmer's Market...and then back home to blog crawl.....hope to see you back for a visit and who knows a friendship...
