    Studio Tour

Everyone should have a little space that is all their own. A quiet place to reflect on life, to create, or to simply take a deep breath at the end of a busy day. For me, that place is my studio.

Light-filled and colorful, my studio has distinct areas for different creative pursuits. When blogging on my computer, I sit in front of a sunny window at a vintage desk in the perfect shade of green. A stainless steel work table wearing a floral fabric skirt once resided in my former tea room's kitchen. Now it is where I photograph and pack for shipment the items listed in my online Etsy shop. An area dedicated to sewing features a whimsical teapot-embellished table. For storage, I rely on an oak Hoosier-style cabinet. On the wall above it, a twelve-foot-long shelf holds my crazy-large collection of 1950s picnic tins.

I love dreaming up creative ways to repurpose vintage pieces. In my studio, a 1940s metal shopping cart is filled with rolls of wrapping paper, an array of ceramic pottery planters neatly corrals art and office supplies, and a worn, paint-splattered ladder keeps my favorite old tablecloths on display just because they are so pretty to look at.

My studio is a special place in our home that is mine, all mine. Spending time here makes me happy each and every day.
