~*Where Bloggers Create*~

 Hello Everyone and 
Welcome to my Studio! 
I want to start off with a Big Thank You 
to our Very Gracious Hostess 
Karen of My Desert Cottage!
Yay Karen! 
Thank you so Much for this Wonderful Party!
I Have to tell you that my Studio is Teeny Tiny!
I have been Banished to the my Bedroom 
but Shhh.. don't tell anyone..
I really Love having my Studio there! 
My Mood Board is the First thing I See in the Morning.
I Love waking to  my Creative Muses!

 My Vintage Altered Bottles 
I created with Nancy Maxwell James!
think I just might have to make some more of these!
  Studio Right
My Inspiration for this Lamp came from PB,
They wanted .. Wow!  
A Lot of Money 
for their Lamp!
So I decided to come up with My Own.
This is Made with my Own Collection of Images, 
A Tomato Cage, 
Office Depot File Clips,
and A Pull Chain Lamp Kit from Home Depot.
The top is an Old Bedroom Ceiling Light
(Circa 1970's)
That I found at a Local Thrift Store.
Black Spray Paint was all it Needed!
Using my own Collection of Images 
made it More Personal and Fun not to mention 
How Beautiful they are Illuminated!

  The Big Picture.. Well the Tiny Picture!
   I Love these Old Watch Faces.
 This is my Mood Board.
 I Like to Have my things Out so I know what I have.
I am kind of like Dory from Finding Nemo....
Short Term Memory.

  I Love Old Books....
  I Love using  Serving Pieces for Display. 
They are Wonderful for Organizing your Collected Pieces.
Did I tell you about my 
Love Affair with Buttons and Lace?!!
After Visiting most of your Blogs...
I have discovered I am not Alone! Lol!
  Don't they Look Scrumptious!
 Aaaa Yumm!
 I started keeping a Project Box. 
It just helps me to stay more Organized .

I Made this for Organizing My Collection of Jewelry.

Well this is it! Pretty Tiny isn't it!
    Thank you for the Visit! 
Hope you found something to inspired you!
Thank You Again Karen for being our Wonderful Hostess!

trash talk said...

Hello Dory...my name is Dug and I have just met you and I love you. Squirrel! Sorry...that's what my daughter says about me!
I love your room and everything in it. You can be sure I'll be copying (yes I said the "c" word) your hanging light. I love P.B.'s too...just not the price. I like the price of your version much better.
Tiny? Maybe, but you sure make up for it in imagination!

I love that hanging light with the images attached. So inspiring and romantic at the same time. Your spot looks so cosy. Like being in a womb of cave surrounded by magical things. I bet you have creative fun in this spot. *smiles* Norma

Great space, Jill! I have a small area in our garage that I call my own. I love seeing all your pieces out and on display. Love the clock faces and the idea of a project box. Your inspiration board is wonderful, too!

It may be small but so beautiful! Packed with so many lovely items to create with. Especially the buttons....gorgeous. I sometimes think if I was contained in a smaller space I may be more productive....not as much stuff to distract me! Cheers.

I know I am so far behind in comments. I love your bedroom studio...that is where mine is too. I like your comparison to Dory in Finding Nemo. If I don't see it I forget where I put it!

Ineke Original said...

Wonderful! I'm glad I did find YOU!

marda said...

Though the size of your space may be small, it certainly doesn't deter from the beautiful creations that come out of it. Compared to what I've seen, my stash of buttons
and lace looks small in comparison.
I'm always on the lookout, so it's continueing to grow. Thank for the tour of your lovely space.
