Karen Valentine is hosting a blogging party called, WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE II. This is my FIRST party like this. I mentioned in yesterday's short post that I was not ready to show you my INSPIRATION ROOM but I decided to get some photos out there anyway. Read yesterday's post first.
If you're a BLOGGER.... WELCOME! I've already started making the rounds and seeing all the wonderful inspiring places you've created out there. I love seeing all your beautiful spaces!
If you're NOT a BLOGGER... WELCOME! Come see all the places where bloggers create their artistic work and their blogs. Go to the button like the one above on my side bar. You will go to the " host's party post". Then click on all the many bloggers that have signed up to show their fun spaces.
So here goes! I collect vintage treasures and "refresh" or "repurpose" them and sell them at three occasional sales a year. So my creative space right now is FULL of stuff I just recently collected and things I'm in the middle of fixing up so it's really a" workshop". We live in a 49 room historical mansion living in the "west wing" and oversee events that take place there. My creative space is a room just off our laundry room.
So open the double doors here and come on in....
The best thing about this room are the windows that open up to beautiful grounds!
Here's the other set of windows. As you can see Mary Englebreit has been one of my inspirations so I have a few of her things here even though they are not vintage.
Get a closer look here...
This is an old rustic table and chair that I use when I need to do things sitting down. Stacked are some old cigar boxes that I store things in. To the left are some little things made with vintage music paper. I sell sheets of the paper and use them for wrapping gifts.
I have another old shabby white table I work on and here are some things on that table.
More old wood boxes and cigar boxes for storage.
AND READY OR NOT....a corner of vintage finds that need to be worked on. Yep, I've got work to do!
And in the other corner.... I can't believe I ACTUALLY SHOWED YOU THIS MESS!
Here's a little corner where I cozy up with my laptop to blog.
And here's another one. These both are guest rooms now that the kids have moved out. But when the guest rooms are full....
I might end up here in the living room on the "conversation couch". Tons of inspiring books and magazines on the table.
So these are the spaces where I "do my thing"! Hope you enjoyed the tour! Next year I just MIGHT BE READY!
