Studio Clutter

As I dug through small items to list on my etsy shop I found some items I hadn't played with for some time.
Sally my mannequin on the right and Wire Lady on left standing in front of my sewing table
They are not usually in this position . Wire Lady has a lace collar on off an old victorian dress and then I have my button collar I made over it . Guess I should have straighten these gals up a little. I had no idea they would be on display today 

 I was moving things over so a repairman could get to one of my windows I am having replaced due to age and wood root. Something I didn't want to spend my hard earned money on. I picked up all my Shiny Brite boxes and piled on my sewing table so he wouldn't step on them
 I am purging lots Christmas smalls at this time. I have a sacks  full of garland I will put in my yard sale it's all newer garland big garland not just small tinsel garland. I use to do different color trees every year. One year all red one year all white, you know the routine. Also I use to have a Christmas Party every year and invite girl friends over for snacks and to view all my vintage Christmas decor
I don't know why I got on Christmas LOL Oh I know why because I was adding etsy Christmas items
Soon as I listed some items they sold

I have removed all these plastic Santas and the German candle holders and the old Folgers keys I made into  icicles buy pulling the wound up key out .You can see several on the right of this metal tree

  1. I did the same thing last year. i went through all my Christmas stuff and set up the room downstairs and gave my 4 kids each 3 totes and they went through and picked whatever they wanted. It was fun to see them decide what they wanted. xo Diana

  2. Hi Janice,
    That tree is really cute! Let me know when you're having your sale, and if you need any help.

  3. love your studio clutter~ everything looks lovely~

  4. It is always a relief to see that I'm not the only one who's studio gets that way at times. The Folger's keys are a clever idea.

  5. I have a theory that people who are organized are just to lazy to look for stuff!
    I love clutter! It makes me feel more relaxed.
    Thank you for visiting me, my friend. Your studio feels like home to me!



  6. Janice, I am loving the clutter, because that means there's a whole bunch of treasure there! Love that tree, wish I were close enough to shop. Good luck!

  7. Oh you're going to make some folks happy. I'm always trolling for vintage Christmas at my usual markets. Thrilled to find something just the right color. It all comes and goes so fast!

  8. Swooning over the Christmas!! We will be bringing it down for the selling season next week ~ sad...but happy at the same time! And for the record...we think the "gals" look swell! We've got 5 vintage mannequins in the store to put aprons & scarves & such on...we LOVE them so...they've all got a name ;)
    Have a wonderful weekend Janice!
