My Favorite Things
I thought I'd share a few more pics today. These are some of my favorite things in my studio.
The first is 'Lil Guy' who I rescued from an auction market a few weeks ago. He's had a tough life and feels happy and secure in his little birdhouse. (Yard sale $1)
The second is a childhood fulfillment so to speak. When I was little our family had very little money and what we did have went for the necessary things so I never had the little girl things that my friends had. The one thing that I loved most at my friend Laurie's house was her tin dollhouse. We would play for hours and hours, letting our imaginations take hold. When I saw this dollhouse at a yard sale ($10) it took my breath away. Everything right down to the little furniture was the same! I look at it every day and remember vividly all the little families we imagined together SO long ago and what it was like to be 7 again.
Lastly is a more practical piece. My poor husband drove 6 hours to get it for me in Massachusetts. I call it my '72' because it has 72 wonderful drawers full of all sorts of things to spark the imagination. My studio used to be upstairs but when I got this library card file we realized that I needed to move downstairs because it was #1 So big... and #2 Sooo heavy. I'm waiting for the west side of my studio to sink lower than the rest. The cabinet weighed a ton but full... ooooo... I don't want to know!
A beautiful rainy day here.... great for working under the skylight in my studio... no glare. :o)
Off to work!
