Giving the Studio a fresh new look for 2016

I have been trying for so long to make some large changes in the studio but it always seemed to hard as i wanted to move large cabinets. being a new year I thought i would just dive right in and do it.

When i first moved into this bedroom it had built in wardrobes, I removed the doors and put shelving in but it seemed like a wasted space. So out came the shelving and in the cabinets went which gives me more room in the studio.

Here is a small collection of my vintage goodies

I love my Raggedy Old Annie dolls, well i love any dolls. That's how i started my craft life as a doll maker in 2002. I took till 2008 to start making teddy bears and i found my passion.

A basket full of vintage lace.

Lots of little treasures.

My beautiful Inn Country hand painted sign. I started my first shop in 2007 and it was called Inn Country. I asked a really wonderful person to paint the sign for me. Natasha Burns. Since i closed the last shop in 2013 the sign has hung in the studio. I wonderful memory to keep from the shop.

I still have a lot of work to do in the studio. I wanted to share where i started with the changes.

What a delightful peek into your charming studio. It's always exciting to switch things up a bit isn't it? Even small changes refresh the energy and that's a perfect way to start the year.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your studio! I could spend hours looking at all your treasures and I promise I wouldn't drool too much. Changes are good for the new year. I think I'm always seeking a better way of displaying my collections. You are an inspiration!
