I've been soooo looking forward to this event... Thank you so much Karen for all of your effort to make this happen. You won't want to miss the other fabulous spaces either. Here's a link back to Karen at My Desert Cottage for you.... Just click HERE.
Karen's space is SPECTACULAR! You'll want to see that, for sure. But look at mine first please... It'll look a whole bunch better... it's gonna be pretty pitiful after seeing Karen's. :-)
I am CRAZY about Cath Kidston, so that was my inspiration ... It's so HAPPY isn't it?
I have a teenie, tiny studio space, but have SO much stuff tucked into every, single nook and cranny.
I've tried to get things as organized as possible.... Whew, is that ever a tough task.... If you're an artsy girlie, you'll exactly what I'm talking about. So many things carry over from one project to another.
Secondly... I LOVE STUFF... really love it. Yep, one of those hoarder kind of girls. I admit it. There it is..... in black and white. :-)
Here we have my work table ... I made it... yep, sure did. It works great.... lots of storage behind that little curtain. I also made the bigger scalloped shelf and the one with points. Those little babies hold a lot of goodies.
Try to ignore the hideous office chair. The new one I ordered was really poor quality, so it's going right on back. I had an old one before that I had made a sweet, 'lil slipcover for, but it was so big and bulky I could hardly move the darn thing.
Making every, single inch count was a priority Chickies... Just look at all that goodness on crammed onto a six inch wide shelf... :-)
I've had this odd, old sewing machine table for about a century now... I'd love one of those dandy Koala, fancy ones........... but one would never fit into this beensie space.... And, this one works just fine.
Edward Scissorhands, where are you? I LOVE the things... probably have at least fifty pair....
Ugly lamp shade? Feather boa is the fix! You can barely see it back behind that stack of books, but that jar with the ribbon? It's full of precious notes from my daughter. LOVE it. And, it was one of my most cherished gifts evah!
No, there are NO diamonds to be found... but it was easier to write that on the tag than "little, fake, stick on rhinestones"... :-) And, more colored pencils. These are watercolor pencils... Can't have too many colored pencils. Seriously. You can't. At least that's exactly what I tell the Hubbster. * I have HUNDREDS of 'em. :-)
I bought those two small, fancy 'lil shelves at the thrift store... just perfect for small stuff...
Rolling right around to the crammed FULL side of the room. So happy that you can't see this wall before you're actually IN the room. But, let me tell 'ya... I have A TON of stuff stored here. I just bought the Billys at Ikea knowing how fantastic they would be.... Three of the regular sized ones and one that's skinnier. Fills the whole wall! I wish I had been able to buy matching and beautiful containers to use, but that would have been super, duper expensive so I used mostly what I had already. Yep, PENNY PINCHER... Tilly Tightwad, for sure.
The little child's chair doubles as a footstool and a step stool to reach higher things. Short. Yes, I AM.
I bought the little drawer do-hickie at the thrift store for a couple of bucks. It was part of a vanity, but with some wood filler, paint and knobs it's just great.
See that adorable red heart up there? A gift sent to me by Sue at Rue Mouffetard.. I LOVE her. Thank you SUE!
You still here? Wow... :-) Geeee... Thanks!
New chair, Ikea. I swear, I couldn't make the slipcover as inexpensively as they sell them. And, those shelves!!! ... See, I couldn't fit another thing in there! Packed as full as possible... Everything is marked, but I want to make a "map" of everything as well. I'm going to print the pix on regular printer paper and write on each container what's inside. And, eventually make new and fancy tags. Right now these will do.
This stool serves as a ............wait for it..........stool... How clever am I?..... and as an end table when I'm using my chair... need something more that that little lamp, but where........WHERE ..........would it fit?
So DEAR Chickies... there you have it... TINY... I think my space is about 9 X 10 or so, but it really is my HAPPY PLACE.
So glad you came by. Now, pop on over to see lots and lots of wonderful places Where Bloggers Create!
Huggies and Lovies...
PS.... Can anybody explain to me how to make my pictures bigger and not run into all that stuff on my right sidebar? I cannnnnot figure it out.
