I'm working on fixing up my new studio space. I filled jars with lots of wonderful little bits and pieces. Now I can just look up and get inspired by them. There are lots of empty jars and even more empty drawers. I can't believe how much space I have in this wonderful old apothecary cabinet.
You can click that image above to get a detailed view.
I relocated my big A and my AMY letters to this room. It didn't seem very fair to have them in the family room without having a big R and RICH letters too. But this room is mine, all mine, and I can mark it with an A.
I made impromptu hat stands from some silvery candlesticks. Isn't it a pretty look?
And that candle is the best smelling ever. I picked it up at a store without checking first for the price. When it rung up at $50 I was too embarrassed to change my mind. Now I'm glad I didn't because it is so wonderful. Perhaps even more wonderful I'll admit because of its luxurious pricetag.
I fashioned a "window treatment" out of wonderful tea towels from Martha's Kmart collection. They might be better suited for the kitchen but they make me happy. I'm all about happy.
I tacked some old rick rack to the back of this area to make an inspiration space. I put some things that I love, love, love all around to make me happy. The teapot becomes a ribbon dispenser (that's a brainstorm I had last year). On the easel I have a positive affirmation card from Louise Hay to keep me on track.
