My Work Space Where Bloggers Create

I have joined up with Desert Cottage
for this bloggers party working spaces.

Hello and Welcome to my home...this is
the entrance to my work room, to the right
is my bathroom to the left is my sliding
door mirror closet. Ironing board as you
enter on the right is always open. Also
to the right is another large cabinet,
not visible, with my fabrics. My area
is not too big but it's cozy and I enjoy
being in here with everything I love
around me.


My granddaughter Kelly painted this chair
for me at age 16, she is now 30.


These cabinet drawers have ribbons, old linens,
and other supplies

Wall unit displaying items I have made and more.


I covered seat of chair to match the Laura Ashley curtains I made for this room.


My two sewing machines that I could not live without, have been sewing since I was 12.

Paints, other supplies and some things I've made.

Some of the blings I use on different items I make.
I have many other boxes full of bling.



Cabinets filled with lace, paper roses, jewelry, old linens, thread and so on.

  45. Hi Lu! What a very lovely room this is indeed. Everything is so pretty and bright. This room would give anyone inspiration. It makes me want to redo my craft room. I may save that for winter though when I am done in the garden. I have a sewing machine but no room to sew. Things have to be rearranged! LOL

    What a wonderful creative space you have there. So bright and cheery! Love the table with your machines and all your dress forms!! Being a first timer like you...we will change how we show our rooms next year, right? I need more light in my basement. And I guess we should have added more descriptions?But we didn't do too bad for first timers! I think your pictures look great and I'm going to follow you also!

    Thanks for the tour, keep in touch
