Sometimes being stuck at home is a good thing.
I managed to do some creating while treating the sick.
Inspired by a new cabinet card & some vintage pressed flowers , I made this little collage.
About six months ago I found this box of botanicals on etsy.
There are about 30 specimens, all amazing & perfect.
For a long time I couldn't bear to use them.
But following Karla's lead, I'm using the good stuff!
This precious girl was also an etsy find.
The keywords I searched with were
Please feel free to add her to your collection!
I also changed my studio for the umpteenth time!
Cannot think of a better thing to do while under quarantine!
This change was a result of a suggestion from Dawn who thought I could use more surface space for work & display.
She encouraged me to bring in 2 more desks, & 2 bookcases & a few other pieces.
She was right! I love it.
The big desk on the right belonged to my Mother.
It's very old, & very big.
It's pretty dinged up, I'm trying to decide if I should paint it.
The best thing about my new & improved art room is the sewing nook!
No more kitchen table sewing for me!
The 'nook' was originally a wet bar.
A must have for all 80's homes.
The bark cloth panel hides a pass through into the living room.
I guess that's how you pass the Whiskey Sours to your guests!
I'm still tweaking, I need to paint this bookcase white.
And hang more things on the walls.
But I love having all of my supplies right at my fingertips!
I always include a 'Bolton' knock off in my re-dos.
Can you find one here?
stole borrowed this utility light from the garage & used an old doll skirt to shade it.
Unfinished work hangs waiting.
Thanks for the positive thoughts & wishes for my kids health.
Their all at school today & so far no calls from the nurses office.
