Please join me for a little tour of my favorite place in the house: my office/studio! SInce school started on tuesday, I have spent most of my day in my little room in the basement. Let's take a look around, shall we? My monster-sized cat, Gyro, will be our guide, although he'll be hiding under the desk most of the time ;)
Here is one corner of my desk. I love my little Fisher Price man, and my glass jar of candy! Notice the TV in teh background. It's on one of my fave shows: Top Chef!
Here are my two bobbleheads: Teddy Roosevelt from the Washington Nationals baseball mascot collection given away on Labor Day AND Dwight Shrute from "The Office"--my fave show! I love the BBC version too! Also there is a cute chick from the Jennifer Murphy collection! The little box hold wishes!
Here's a basket sitting on a plastic tub with totes planned for an upcoming trunk show (more about that later!). The basket is full of recent thrift store finds!
A vignette of shabby ladies and one dog and kitty on a shoe. Waiting on deck to be made into futire projects! The pink wicker crib behind them once held flowers given to my mom when I was born.
A section of my bookshelf with a favorite girrafe Dream Pet--Love the dots! A Pac Mac my son gave me. A slinky from childhood. Lots of research books for my writing AND a lovely crystal glass service award from Washington Romance Writers!
A funny terrier pulling a cart vase holds vintage millinery flowers I purchased from the delightful Heather at Speckled Egg!
Captain Jack Sparrow keeps watch over my space!
Hubby made these sweet shelves which hold all sorts of things from my childhood (and adulthood!), as well as metal baskets of ribbon and trims!
One of four shadowboxes with my favorite button cards!
Another corner of my desk with three pin cushions in progress. They'll eventually end up on my etsy shop! A card with the perpetually yummy Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy sent to me by my good friend and neighbor, Molly, who was touring the United Kingdom before heading off to music school in Hungary!
My old faithful Singer sewing machine! She had a recent overhaul and works like a little champ now!
A girl has to have a nice place to relax! My pillow-filed chair with Simply Shabby Chic vanity stool to rest my feet is the perfect place. A pair of cowgirl boots I bought in Cody, Wyoming make a sweet flower holder! Now, if I could only convince hubby, son, and cat that this chair is MINE!
Stacks of pastel seam binding and ribbon bought by the spool up in Hagerstown, Maryland at the Offray ribbon outlet!
One more shadowbox with button cards to show you! Thanks for taking the tour of my little retreat! Please share your favorite retreat where you create in your blog! XXOO, Beth
