it's going to be more of a job than i first anticipated. but we did start with the most important room in the house - at least i think so - MY STUDIO!!! crazy i know but i am so excited that i've finally got a proper space to call my own. i discreetly and sneakily started to take over the family dining room - a desk here, a printer there until finally long-suffering hubby took the hint and said that i needed a proper place to work so we re-vamped the dining room into a gorgeous place that's all my own....
i'm surrounded by all the things that i love - vintage china, buttons, beads, ribbons, photos, colour, fabric stashes, books and collages i've done in the past.
as you can see i'm a HUGE marilyn fan, and gone with the wind, fashion and vintage ladies also feature a lot in my creative space.
i love using my sewing machine to make cushions, clothes and little home accessories like lavender bags.
you will notice my inspirational quote that i painted on the wall above the fireplace. it's taken from the most wonderful book i've ever read called Double Wedding Ring by Patricia Wendorf. do yourself a favour and READ THIS BOOK! it's the most fantastic story and you will absolutely love it - i promise! if you do get to read it, let me know what you think and leave a comment.
if you're interested in other books that she's written they are Larksleve, Blanche and Bye Bye Blackbird. again, they are absolutely wonderful as well. it tells the story of a family over the generations - truly magical!!
