Where Bloggers Create 2011

Hello everyone! I am participating in the Where Blogger's Create Party for the 1st time, and am so excited! I can't wait to see all the other wonderful places that all the talented ladies, and gentlemen, create their wonderful treasures in :) I want to give a big Thank You to Karen, at My Desert Cottage, for hosting this wonderful blog party for the 3rd year! Okay, now on to showing you ladies where it is that I do my creating in.....first, I want to let you know that the photos you will be seeing were taken a couple or so weeks ago....it has now been taken over by things for my daughter's Baby Shower :)




The room that I work in, use to be my daughter's room, but when she married almost 2 years ago, I transformed it into my "sewing room"....this is a sign that was custom made for me, and it hangs on the door that leads into the room...



starting from the left of the doorway, is this Vintage pink hamper that I use to store bits and pieces of leftover fabric in....you never know when you might need just a little piece of something to use in a pillow or stocking....



above the hamper hangs this Vintage cabinet, which I painted white, then added a bit of pretty Vintage Rose Wallpaper to it....it simply holds some sweet little treasures that I like to look at....



next to the cabinet is a beautiful painting done by Cindy Ellis....I bought this from a seller on Ebay....isn't is just gorgeous....I do like me some roses, lol :)



This is a cabinet purchased at Target, from the Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic line....it holds my finished items and other things like my sewing thread, Vintage items that I am selling, and on the top you will see a sweet little vintage cabinet that I painted white, and in the drawers it holds some of the jingle bells I use on my stockings, little charms, and also my little "Thank You" note cards that I include with every package I ship out....



Next up, is this fabulous Antique Victorian Bed....it had to stay in this room, but it was originally brown, but I told hubby, that if it's stayin' it's gettin' painted white! I think it looks Perfect ~ I've dressed it up with a Vintage Chenille bedspread, a pink rose quilt at the foot of the bed, and the 2 rosey pillows were created by me, with Vintage Rose barkcloth and trims....the bed serves as my "work table", so to speak.....



A vintage tray holding some sweet vintage treasures....just for looks :)....



Here's a close-up of the pillows....



There's a shelf on the wall next to the bed, that holds more pretties and Vintage treasures, including a fabulous Vintage pink rose hat, which I LOVE to collect....



Next to the bed is a sweet little round table that holds a Vintage crystal lamp, and I had topped it with another one of my Vintage rose hats...it has since been replaced with a refurbished lampshade that I created for it....



Doesn't it look so romantic all lit up :)



Another sweet shelf I painted up white, and it too holds some sweet pretties and Vintage treasures....I like to be surrounded with things that bring a smile to my face :).....



Yup, I still have this OLD sewing table that I use to do my sewing on....one day I hope to find just the right style and size table to take it's place...until then it works just fine....the sewing maching with the cover on it is used strictly for making ruffles, and the other machine does all the rest....you can see I had started working on a cute pillow (remember, these pic's were taken over 2 weeks ago....I STILL haven't finished that pillow, lol )



And here is the cabinet that holds all my fabrics....the pretty boxes on top hold all my laces, trims, flowers, etc....not shown in this picture, behind the door, is an old metal shelf that holds my radio, 'cuz I like to listen to 'tunes sometimes while I'm working, plus other things I had no room for, lol :) The wall to the left is where the closet is, and that is where I keep all my packaging supplies and such in, and out of sight....



I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my little space that I like to create in ~ Please be sure to check out all the other wonderful creative spaces, as there will be lots of wonderful ideas that you can incorporate and use in your own creative space :)

Until next time sweet friends :)

I think your work space is just as pretty as can be. I really love the hamper idea and might just have to use it. : ) I am always in need of a place to put the extras.

Doni said...

Hi Brenda!
I love your room, it's so romantic. Especially love the painted headboard...I wish I dared paint the one I have, but it's a recent inheritance, and I just can't quite think about that yet, but it sure would look better if I did!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my room! Blessings, Doni

Something Special said...

Your home is so lovely and quaint. I have always dreamed of living in a home like that with the big wrap around porch. Your creative space is enchanting and that big old bed that is painted white is truly shabby. I love it all. Thanks for the tour, and I will look for your follow spot and join up.
