The Studio

Well I straighten the studio up a Little not completely but since I have the blue & pink chair painted wanted to change my table cloth on my Grandmothers old Oak table , It's a 42 inch  round oak and I was going to paint it, however my daughter who lives in Oregon wants it when she gets a larger house and she does not like painted furniture . I use it for a work table now and have another one for my sewing machines

I have a lot of stuff in the studio and just love it all

before changing tablecloth also I took these pictures with my new iphone

Now after a little straighting up and my toile tablecloth on instead of the pink one with glue all over it    


I see a few things in the back ground I should have moved like the black florist box sitting on Martha's Windsor chair

This is an old wing back chair and ottoman  I bought at Thomas ville years ago now it has an old white chenille bedspread and white table cloth and old white lace laying on it plus a few other items , a fur piece on top. My visitors can set here

I had some of my buttons out and I got out a lot of the French General items I bought at Michael's a couple weeks ago, my first trip into Michael's I paid full price, wait a young  lady in line had her ipad and I used her 20% coupon( after asking her if she had a store coupon)  on line then the second trip to get more it was 40% off

  16. I like the ladies with the ribbons wrapped around them. You have lots of lovely stuff in your studio.

  17. Love your chair and ottoman, so cozied up with all the great fabric. I had to look close, I thought that was a black cat on the back of the chair. I guess that's cause I've had that same look, with the actual black cat, LOL!!!
