Hi ~ So fun to come by for a visit in your lovely space!... storage is so important for all our supplies, and being organized is so helpful. You have a well-organized space, isn't it great to know where everything is?!? I too love to have my flea-market treasures all about. And what a cute dog! Thanks for coming by my party! (it's not gonna be this clean for long!!!)

How sweet to have your precious little canine pal keep you company as you create! Thanks for the tour!

Great space to create in! Love all your vintage treasures!
Best wishes,


Your studio is a charming work in progress. I think the new wall color will be great and show off your wood furniture wonderfully.
Love the story of how you named your blog and also your vintage treasures.
Have a great weekend


Your crafting space is great. I love the cabinet with the glass doors, I have something similar in my space-so useful. Thanks for the tour!


I love your space - the cabinet with the glass doors is lovely. Your doggie is so adorable. I agree - if you put it out to the universe it will show up somehow and you will have that wicker chair.

Laura Ingalls Gunn

What an amazing space you have created! You have inspired me to add to my own crafting area.

I adore all of your storage solutions.

And you have scored some great working pieces and some for FREE!!!! Can't beat that!!!!

Thanks so much for sharing!! I enjoyed my visit!

Oh what a wonderful space you have here. I love your desk that houses your Christmas Cards! Your laces and dollies... could just live right there with them. I love lace and trims so to see them makes my heart skip to a happy beat! My desk is never cleaned...so I feel you on that one...smiles.
BTW...thanks for your comment on my Studio too! Smiles again...Lovey

Hello Anna, your creative space is wonderful... I love all of your woods in their original state, not all painted white... white is lovely, but I like to keep my old woods the same as well... DJ is adorable! Your ribbons look so pretty hanging, and all of your little added touches, vintages photos, etc. Thanks for sharing! xoxo Julie Marie

Lynette Killam

You have a lovely crafting space. I think I best like all the extra vintage touches..your old photos..the lace doilies..and of course, your grandfather's roll-top desk is amazing! I have few material things linking my childhood in Ireland to my life now, and just love the sense of continuity you have in your space.

Thank you for sharing, and I'm so pleased you stopped by my little studio. I musn't forget to say how adorable DJ is! I always have my best doggie friend along with me wherever I go.

Nicely done and nicely organized. You've done a great job on your studio. I love that you have so many things important to you incorporated.


I love your space. Love the desk that belonged to your grandfather.


I love your CrEaTiVe space! You're very organized and I'm not, but since this party, I've been totally inspired, so next year I can hardly wait to be a part of all this fun. I'm sorry to hear about the water damage, but once the room is painted it will feel like a new space to you I'm sure! Thanks so much for sharing, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs!

You're so lucky to have a designated place to do your crafting. I do mine all over the house! I must get back into paper crafting...too many crafts, too little time. :)

What a lovely craft room!
I like the fact that you didn`t paint some of the old furniture.
I think it gives it a old charm... which I love!



Hi Anna! Thanks for stopping by! I just love your space. I am so impressed with how organized everything is. You have so much here to work with and I love how everything is easily visible. That really helps with keeping me inspired. I am sure I will check back here often to see how to organize certain things.

You have a wonderful space. I love that you've surrounded yourself with vintage family photos. You dog is too cute as well!


I'm loving your space...I'm lucky too that I can dedicate a whole room for my "craft". It was fun seeing how everyone stores their various bits and pieces! So creative....thanks for visiting me also!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

Great storage ideas and I love your glass front cabinet! I'm helping a client and one of the areas we will be dealing with {at some point} is her finished basement. She has a cabinet like this and I'd like to incorporate it into her creative space. Thank you for the inspiration! Thanks for visiting me, too! : )


Hi Anna,
your studio has so much great storage in it and I am loving all the great pieces you use. I also adore the fact that you have so many personal family photos in the space!


Great use of space and I love how you handled your ribbon, looks quite handy and space saving. Love the rolls of paper in the basket. Thanks for sharing. XOXO
