My Studio








Karen Valentine/My Desert Cottage is hosting a blogging event to show the spaces where bloggers and artists create. Please check out her site to see the rest of the gang and their creative spaces.
I have carved out a small spot in my basement where I can make messes and blast the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Edith Piaf, depending on my mood. I utilize my flea market finds to help me keep things somewhat organized.

Linda, I always love to see the treasures you have tucked in here and there. I saw one of the metal registers at an antique store and thought of you. I wish I could find one of those tape holders!!

happy day, sweet friend,

Ellie Clinton Issa said...

Linda,
Your creative space is fabulous. I think you should give us a step by step "how-to organize your creative space" guide so we can all have a functional, neat space like yours to work in.

Deb said...

Wonderful creative space Linda. I love all the whimsical touches and vintage collections you have throughout your Studio!

Farmgirl Paints said...

OK - I love the way you displayed your ribbon and I'm going to borrow that idea! My husband just finished up my craftroom (I am loving it!) and it isn't quite messy yet...lol...give it time! But, I've been looking at how to have my ribbon on hand. This is a great idea, and I think I have just the thing!

Michelle (Shell) May said...

What a fun and whimsical space to create! Love it! Thanks for sharing a tour.

BellaRosa said...

I love your studio, especially the green cabinet with the thin drawers, I have some too, that I so want to use, but they seem too big, I think they were used for storing plans, I hope to one day fins some smaller ones. You have a great blog :) Rose

paperbird said...

I have been on vacation so I am just getting around to seeing these wonderful creative spaces. Yours is lovely. A fun place to create!

Kim-Fille de Fleur said...

Really great to see your space. It looks full of fun. I have been here to visit before and have always had such fun. I can not wait to come back and see what you were up to in NYC!

We have the same hanging metal buckets from IKEA!!! I love your ribbon spools.

Saucy said...

One of the greatest studios in blogland. Mine is too shamefully messy to post.

Your parcel arrived today. Loopy rang my cell phone, she was so excited about it! You outdid yourself. You will now be referred to as "The Supplier."

Molly Alexander said...

What a wonderful creative studio - I love the ribbon/tape dispenser! Thank you so much for sharing your space!
