A work in progress....and keepin' it real ~


So....I have a lot of stuff. I'm trying to figure out what stays and what goes :)
I thought I'd share a few photos with you around the ol' farmhouse ~
Now remember,
I'm just unpacking and haven't gotten to decorating at all.

Here are the shelves in the foyer...loaded down with goodies!
I haven't added the glass doors yet ~




The blob of the studio ~ there's a desk under all the stuff!!








Since the studio is half the size of the other...
I've sacrificed several pieces of furniture
to other places in the house ~



This is just a junk pile right now...
and we decided to keep the wonderful old military photo!!
I need to dust, vacuum and clean after all this stuff is situated too :)


It's really a miracle that we've gotten this far!!!!

Wishing you a great Wednesday dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Every time I visit and see all that you have accomplished, I am in awe. Be encouraged...it's all coming together so very well. Some day, you'll have to let us know what it's like to work in a smaller studio again. Say, can that cute little barn be turned into your studio?

Dawn... You will be moving things for sometime I am sure and just when you get unpacked it will be the holidays and unpack again but won't it be exciting to celebrate Christmas in a charming country home... Blessings ....

Wow, I missed so much! I know you are in heaven setting things to rights in your new house. I was glad to read that your brother-in-law is doing better. You have all been in my prayers.
We opened up today at the new location for the quilt shop. Oy, it's been a lot of work! Stop by and visit when you get the chance. As soon as our lives are back to normal, we need to get together for a creative day. :)

Everything you've done so far is lovely ~ before you know it everything will be in place.

Your studio is so amazing. i click on the photos and examine every detail...I get so much inspiration just looking at it all!

Romeo said...

Sure looks great! You are coming along a lot faster than I would! I'm terrible in that I'll think some vignette is done and then I'll go back and redo. So it seems like it never all seems to be done ;) Thanks so much for sharing -looks like you are almost there!

Have a great week!

Amy Kinser said...

Those stacks and stacks of fabric are so pretty. That's just what really caught my eye...

Nancy Maxwell James said...

Hi Dawn
I am assuming you recently moved? Congrats to you and your new place is looking awesome. We just went through this in March (I didn't even have a kitchen sink or counters) and I feel your pain. I still have boxes in the basement but I think they need to just be purged! Happy decorating your new nest! :)

Michelle said...

Dawn,
Your new home is amazing and your decorating skills are FAB! I need to have you over to my home. Even the "arranged piles of junk" have appeal to my tender eyes this morning...Makes me want to come over with my coffee and hang out. Wishing that were possible.
Love and Motivation to you my sweet Friend,
Michelle

Looks great so far. I can tell that it is going to be so beautiful:) I know it is a lot of work but must be so much fun too. Love all of the fabrics you have so neatly displayed.

I'm just chuckling, Dawn, because I know that over the next few months you are going to rearrange everything at least a dozen more times! ;-) I'll bet you are exhausted every night.
Hugs! Take a nice hot bath now!

Well, you are much further along in the process than I am! Looks amazing even it it's "just unpacked" state ;) All I have managed to do is move boxes around lol!
