Where THIS blogger creates!


Oh well, I'm a day late and a dollar short for that party!!
But no matter, I feel like having my very own shindig after
completing this studio transformation!!!
I LOVE IT!

There is so...so...much more space!!
Yes, I still have a few piles and goodness gracious
I just hope I can remember where I put everything.
If you're OCD these pics may seriously test you!

I really tried to group things though.
Now that my sewing machine is in the extra room,
I've placed most all of the sewing supplies in there
except of course all of the STACKS AND STACKS
of fabric...no, I'm not moving all that.

So here are the photos I want to share with you ~
It's still not perfect but a vast improvement and
in doing this it has fired me up to create!!!

Here's a peek (just please ignore any dust you may see!)
And some of that clutter on top of the bookshelves
and black amoire will end up in my Etsy.



























So, wanna come over and make something pretty??!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to.
I think I hear a little dolly calling my name....

Happy weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Sweet inspiration and just a little bit of stalling ~


A few wonderful images to inspire you today!
Click, save and use...






I have a beautiful idea to share below!
Do you love the feel of a canopy bed?
Simply install two curtain rods you love to your ceiling,
then add a giant swath of GORGEOUS fabric and VOILA!
You are sleeping in luxury....




I'm so in love with Ralph Lauren.
Well, not really HIM but with his classic, timeless style.
This bedding below is a Ralph Lauren pattern, Guinevere.
I have a piece of fabric in the pattern and a ruffled shower curtain too.
Crazy, huh?
That I would settle for fragments of it...
But I always thought that the fabric
would make such beautiful accent pillows in our living room.



I worked in a drapery workroom for a VERY short time
(can you say "sweat shop"?)
and I learned how to create
this gorgeous window treatment.
We called it a butterfly shade....
I'm still so in love with it.



And I've always loved toile. ALWAYS.
It's timeless to me....a classic.
The snippet below is from a dining room but don't you
absolutely LOVE how those curtains are scalloped????
A guest bedroom would so gorgeous
in all blue and white toile,
don't you think?




The stalling part?
Well, I am SO very close to taking photos of the studio!!!
I'm almost there and can't wait to share how it looks now!


Wishing you a wonderful Thursday sweet friends....
Remember to take time to enjoy the little things ~
seems time is passing by so quickly!

much love and hugs,
Dawn

Making progress!







When you have as much stuff as I do,
 it takes awhile to get everything back in order!!!
Plus, I've had other things
to do along the way and have just had to put the studio
on the back burner.

We've had a TON of egg soap orders and
slowly but surely we are finally catching up!

I don't have any studio photos just yet but had to share something with you.
My best bud Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered knew I was working on an art doll.
She told me that she'd been to an estate sale recently and bought a ziplock bag
full of what she thought might just be doll hair!!!

I went to Hobby Lobby to see what they had and it was awful.
Shiny, curly and not at all what I've envisioned on my little baby doll.
Lisa emailed me a photo of what she had and IT. WAS. PERFECT!!!!

That sweetie popped it into an envelope and sent it right over.
Well, it REALLY is so perfect for my little doll!!!
Here's one photo that I took ~
I simply draped one section over the baby's head to show you how it looks.
It's going to be so precious!
But I've got to get this studio re-do finished before I get back to her.
I just hope and pray I can find everything after I finish!!!!
Wish me luck ;)




Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday sweet friends!!!

hugs and love,
Dawn
