Around The Studio

I have had no enthusiasm to get anything done for the last 2 weeks. I still haven't got any greeting cards started and believe me I have plenty of paper and embellishments to add to the cards. I have a chest of drawers full and an white wicker armour plus several small decorative boxes full.Anyway I will get all fired up when the sun comes out .My sweet ladies from Germany I found at a yard sale for $3. Just wanted to show a few things I have sitting around that makes me happy. The little girls shirt has damage to her beautiful lace and the lady said that is why she was only $3.                                          


This is a card I embellished years ago. I think this is the first card I ever altered . I had gone to an estate sale and bought a big box of small plastic do dads like this green hat and airplane.

Love this sweet little girl,I added her a crown and the Blessed Mother charm

My shelf I bought at a yard sale once added the bottle brush tree and jar of beads ,rhinestone clothes pins
My little Nicol Sayre doll sitting on a bird nest,I think I'l add glitter to her nest ,she is holding a little glitter bird. behind her is a few Byers Carolers dolls and a tall Santos doll

I forgot to add in my newest Nicol Sayre doll that I bought in Lexington Missouri at a shop having a closing sale 50% off everything  

Believe me I have plenty to do and love all my treasures just need you to tell me to get it done LOL 

A look across the table I create on ,this was taken through a mirror across the room 





Linky parties I joined in

  6. Your little lady is beautiful! I don't ever mind a blemish or crack if it is something I really like. Now I understand the not doing anything, it is a January thing I think. I sat all day yesterday doing genealogy work.

  7. There is so much personality in your studio . . . I love it. I enjoy creative spaces where you can sit and look around for hours and still not see everything. Sterile and Art Studio just don't cut it in my book. Your place oozes charm and whimsy . . . Perfection!

  9. Dear Janice:
    This is your "Feeling Inspired "Room and what a great place. Are you like me? The hardest thing is getting started and when I finally do - I get on a roll and don't want to quit. I love seeing your Nicole Sayre doll! So glad she is living at your house!

  12. I have never been to Medjugorje, but am fortunate to have a medal of the Blessed Virgin brought back for me by a good friend. How wonderful that you were able to go there!
    I love looking at your photos. I have a few Byers carolers and remember a lady statue with stiff lace trim like yours that my grandmother owned.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the soul who carefully collected and saved your green "do dads" knows that they are safe with you, enjoyed instead of being thrown out!

  13. Oh Janice you have so many beautiful things that would make me happy as well! I love your collection of dolls. I saw some in CA I wanted like them, but could not bring myself to pay the price. How lucky to find a store with 50 off. Love your work studio. My work desk needs a good dejunking since Christmas. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  17. You have a great space and eye candy to do your work. I know what you mean about not in the mood to be creative. What I do I do not like . I need something to get me going.
    Lets hope we get with it.

  21. OMG....what a wonderful looking studio you have!! What fun! I know what you mean about lacking enthusiasm. I have 2 sales coming up in March and I've not started getting ready. Today.....is the day it begins!

    You must have found those buys at Mo River Antique Co in Lex. I was one of the original vendors in it when it opened years ago. It was a wonderful place to shop.

    HPS!! Dana

  27. Janice, you inspire me. And, I know what you mean. I am full of great ideas, but I just can't seem to get off the block. Personally, I just can't seem to get past so many other things I have going on that seem to take up all my energy.

    Happy Pink Saturday, my friend. I would love to come sit with you and look at all of your wonder. Thank you for always making Pink Saturday special. This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday this week as "the one with the most clicks".♥
