Atelier No. 2 ~ studio part one

little by very little I'm getting there...

the transformation from dining room to

the writing to you and painting table...
a lighted paper garland made from vintage book pages...

vintage drawer holds all the 'little' desk necessities

must have world clocks...
it's always good to know the time in Paris...

vintage office card files~perfect for paint bottles sorted by color
they sit atop an antique sewing machine trestle draped with Ahrisha's beautiful
table cloth I won....

probably my favorite piece...this chest~ cool 50's style & so holds...well,
I think everything!

lot's of vintage silver keeping little things sorted and handy...

I could never have enough antique frames...
just a few I've hung so far, more to go:)


the design board
made with painters drop cloth, quite appropriate! handy, so pretty!
clipped to the top, a vintage bed lamp~ the kind that used to sit on
the headboard...remember these?

Carla's banner...the perfect spot for 'love' !

Made changes to my blog as well...did you notice?

I suppose I'm feeling the onset of fall cleaning...
or maybe just the very late arrival of
spring cleaning...yes, that is much more likely the case.

Thanks to all for hanging in there with me during my little 'blog nap'!!
I've accomplished alot these past few weeks, not everything on my list but alot.
I'm still, it seems, always about 3 weeks on sign orders and what used to feel like...
'omg, I'm so behind!!!'
all the time
is, well, just becoming the norm for me. That is to say, I'm learning to relax a little.

Hope you enjoyed a little peek around the new studio...
I'll share more photos soon, as it is always a work in progress!

Next up will be my fall sign's a hint,
remember my favorite
pumkin color??

Siesta time...

or...a blog nap if you will...

I've so much major catching up to do...orders, chores, all the things life lands in your lap... and trying to move my studio all at the same time.

So a blog break~siesta is in order if I'm to ever get ahead!

When I'm back I'll have so much to share with you...the kittens, my new studio, new signs and a new giveaway...{a fall sign that at this time is still in my head but won't be for long!}

Meet me back here in hopefully just a couple of weeks...we'll have a party!

Ever feel like a fireman?

Like you better keep this stuff handy...cuz you never know when the next spark is going to ignite?
That's my poetic way of describing my life lately. Little fires that need stomping out before they turn into roaring blazes.
Family stuff
(geez, thought I put that one out already??!!)
Computer get the idea!!!

So I haven't been able to do as much of the fun blogging~ and I'm getting way behind on, well.... just about everything!
Just thought I'd stop in and share this with you all...just in case anyone didn't recognize me in my new hat and jacket!!
But I'll be back soon...I feel the embers cooling down:)

GTKY Sunday

It's another Get to Know YOU Sunday at mannland5! Stop by Keely's blog and join in the fun! This weeks fun questions and answers.....

1. If you were to win an award today, what would it be for?
Definately for 'the woman with the most started but not finished projects'. It's a good thing I married a 'finisher'....he's always right behind me, shaking his head and forcing a smile:)
2. What is your shoe style?
Flat, comfy and feminine. However, one look in my closet will tell you this shoe style is relatively new for me.
3 Does your car reflect your personality?
Most definately.

Older model (1999), topdown and carefree~uh, that translates to 'hairdown' for humans~
resourceful, it's great on gas and, refusues to be bogged down with luggage baggage! Plus, it's a little bit sassy. It's me in a nutshell.

4. If you could take over someones body for a day..whose would you choose?
Gee, I don't know for sure but I do know it would be someone ~anyone~ half my age!

5. Love or be loved?
Love. It naturally produces 'be loved'. It's a win-win!

6. If you were on death row, what last meal would you choose?

Lobster, with lot's of butter!

7. Have you been on vacation this Summer, if so where?
Yes, thank goodness! Outer Banks NC.

8. What is your favorite food related guilty pleasure?

Homemade or Artisan bread and real butter.

~Man may not be able to live on bread alone, but
this woman sure could!~

Thanks Keely...another fun Sunday!

Hard to believe it's August first already isn't it?

Feel like it's time to make my 'summer bucket list'!

Happy Sunday!
