I have acquired yet another great item for my studio! When a local scrapbook shop closed it’s doors, I snagged a couple of paper racks they were selling. I love, love how it displays my colored papers.Another rack I’ve recently acquired is the great old retail display rack. I’m not sure what it held but it is perfect for my ink pads.

I’m linking up to Terrific Under Ten Tuesday with At Home With Kay. How about a Terrific 25 Cent Tuesday. (and yes, I know it’s Wednesday. But she has the link party open for a while.) This baby cost me just that. It’s a wooden crate that I think held cassette tapes. I had to pull out a few slots but it made the PERFECT storage for my ink pads.I also want to share a set of pretty Victorian cards with you. This paper was breathtaking! When I see these pastel , Victorian style images; I see loveliness and beauty.
For lack of attention a thousand forms of loveliness elude us every day.
Wow! If you’ve stuck with me on this, I hope your not too tired to see the last bit. This may be the most cluttered corner of the room. I love my suitcases! They look so cool and are great storage. And yes, more enamelware for storage too.Looking up you’ll see this view.Here’s a peek inside the cabinet.I used to keep all my ribbon spools in there but then came up with this beautiful and functional way to keep ribbon. I love it!These shelves are clear plastic frames turned upside down to hold my clear stamps.Above that I have a stash of vintage finds that I plan to put little paper flowers in. I think I need to quit buying and start making!Above that are these muffin tins. I just used dowel sticks to hold them up.Here’s a peek at what’s inside one.Some of my paper roses waiting for stems.I think this may be my new thing to collect. I love using old fibers on cards.This is the back of my door.Above the door is where I display the magnets I’ve made.I do have one more corner that is my husband’s favorite spot to read.I even have stuffed stashed behind there.This room is my studio; my place to work; my place to play; my place to relax; my place to hide. This last photo shows you it is my haven!Thanks so much for letting me show you my space. I think I appreciate it so much more after posting all of this. Blessings!
Well, you have pretty much seen all of one side of my space. Now, to start on the other side. Here is the view looking from my door.It basically goes floor to ceiling! Over in the far corner it looks like this.The little spinner is made from a terra cotta plant base, some pipe, and a lampshade frame. It holds my sequins. Then all my little drawers are labeled and full. Above that I used drawer liners from target to hold some of my wooden stamps. I had to nail them to the wall as they kept falling over and dumping all the stamps everywhere. I have two shelves on the other side holding the rest of my wooden stamps. I didn’t show them yet in details so here they are.This one was once a shadow box that I painted and distressed. I think I pulled off some folk art hearts somewhere as well as removing a few slates to make different sized cubbies.A dear friend just gave me all of her stamps and then I found some for really cheap at a garage sale. So my wooden stamp collection doubled in just a matter of days!
Well, this post is done. I’ve got other stuff to get done. I’ll tackle the shelves tomorrow!
