Happy fall dear friends!

 

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted!
Time flies no matter what you're doing!

It's been busy around here since I last posted.
I pulled out some antique lace and was playing
with a paperweight in these pics.





Well, the pickets on the front porch of the studio
were really janky and not spaced well.
My dad took them all off and replaced them a few weeks ago!
They now match the spacing of the stairs too.







Then I had to add a few porch curtains and love how they look!!




Next, I hand painted a new sign to add to the top of the stairs!










In between all of this, I had to go through all of my mama's things
as we planned to have a yard sale the beginning of October.

This was not an easy task and wouldn't wish it on anyone.
It was like saying goodbye all over again.
We made it through though and donated what was left.
I even cried at the thrift store.





We also had brand new double-pane windows installed in our new home!!!
They are absolutely wonderful!




I took several small pieces of artwork to a wonderful antique store
here in our new hometown, Lazy J Mercantile!

There were five pieces and now there's only ONE left!!!
WOO HOO!!!!
It's so cool when someone loves what you make!




AND....of course I couldn't leave empty handed when I picked up my first check!!!
Look at this gorgeous bridal crown, antique muslin bag
and a pair of rhinestone shoe clips I bought...
I SO LOVE IT ALL!!!




It's now the middle of October and
the weather is finally cooling here in Georgia.

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year.
Cool breezes and gorgeous blue skies always make me smile!!!!


Thank you always for stopping by sweet friends,

Much love,
Dawn

My new studio is finally coming together!

 
Well, we've lived in our new home now for 6 months!
I think it was really about time I finished unpacking and
putting together my new art studio!

I had unpacked a little and decided I needed new
lighting fixtures on the sweet front porch.
I just LOVE how they look!!
Thanks to my dear daddy who installed them for me!







Dad noticed there was an old wasp's nest inside the rusty fan
that had been on the front porch so he took it apart
so I could use it for artwork!!!







The next step was a new door!
I found it on FB Marketplace and it was exactly what
I wanted to let a little more sunlight inside.
My sweet dad installed it AND we started hanging
lace curtains!






Yes, those bottom panels are quite long
but I can shorten them from the top later!




I've actually added a mini blind on this window below
because the sun sets on this side of the studio.
It really helps keep it cooler inside too!







You can kind of see the entrance to the tiny bathroom
in the left side of the photo below:



This is my new sewing table. It's on one end of the room and
my desk is on the other end. It really is just a room!
But I love it. There's a small bathroom in there as well because
it used to be the pool house!










This is the little nook off of the main room with a sink!
I've managed to cram as much stuff as possible in it though!!!
Even a mini fridge that was a gift from my son and his wife.











I know there are a lot of repetitive photos but
I took more pics once I hung artwork on the walls.

There is still more tweaking to do
but am so excited to get to MAKING again.
It's certainly time, right?


Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

My new favorite place to visit!!!



It's so much fun discovering sweet shops
when you move to a new town.

I've finally been getting out a little bit and
discovered this JEWEL!!!

in Thomaston, GA.

Oh my goodness, Y'ALL!!!
There are so many wonderful treasures to be found!
Of course I had to take a ton of photos
to share with you...take a peek:































 


And then there is this little cutie!!!
This wee one is Boss Baby,

It is such a wonderful shop!

Hugs and love always,
