Time in my art room ~

I've been working with a little of this wonderful stuff on a few projects lately ~
I just love old lace!

I wanted to show you the neatest thing! I was at Tuesday Morning the other day and they had this amazing sectional type organizer thing ~ it can go horizontally across the back of your desk but as you see in my photos, I already have the top of my work table crammed full! So I just stacked it vertically ~ regular 60.00 something dollars for only 19.99!!

I'm trying really hard to get organized, can you tell?




Just some sweet doll clothes that I have in my collection. I pressed them and hung them in the little doll trunk on my desk ~ just look at that little pocket they added on the red and white shirt!! I just love these little handmade clothes ~








Velvet roses in a pretty apothecary jar ~


Do you know what these are hanging on either side of my inspiration board (which I need to fill back up)? They are placemats! They feature the illustrations from the book, Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. I love them so I used plate hangers and hung them as art!




Hope you have a very nice Thursday ~ see the beauty in the small things and always try to make the time to do something you love . . .

xxoo, Dawn

Dawn, that organizer is just perfect. I know what you mean about stacking things on the work table. I have a stack of plastic drawers on my table. Not as beautiful as your organizer though.

It's so much fun to see your room get pulled together more and more. And I thought that you were all done days ago! Oh, I do want a craft room, too! :D
