Snippets of my Craftroom

I thought I would invite you in.
To my little piece
of Heaven.
Where I spend so much of my time.
My craft room entertains
my mind.....peaks my curiosity.
I have adored ribbons of all
types for as long as I can remember.
My favorites are Hannah Silks
and Seam Binding.

Life wouldn't be as grand....
if not for my stash
of vintage wallpaper.
The oldness makes it better.
Breaking pieces and
tearing all add to the element
and vintageness
of the things
created.

I can never pass up a spool of string
or a vintage bottle
from Lola Rue....created by Lisa.
The creaminess of the string
and the subtileness of
the pastel blue inspire me
restfully.



......and can a girl ever have
too much vintage
mercury glass???
I think not. I also can't have
too many vintage pantry jars
or apothecary jars.
Be still my beating heart!!!!



Oh my mercy....don't get me started on
vintage salt shakers.
Cut glass or sterling.....they will
always inspire.
I hope you have enjoyed a few
little snippets from my
piece of Heaven. I hope you have
an artfully creative day.

Hi Hope,

So great to hear from you! I really love your snippets.....especially the jar of beads, so very yummy. I have not had any time to sauter, but maybe in the New Year. I hope you and your family have a great Christmas! I also love your Christmas ornaments.
