Where Bloggers Create Party!

I am so happy to be participating in this years party!
~ Thank you for stopping by ~
-
Welcome to my studio!
This is where I paint in oil and watercolor,
create mixed media art, work on jewelry, and play.
-
Picture me in that chair, blogging away,
with two Afghan Hounds spread out on the floor near by
-
My work table, and easel in the background
(No, it is not always this clean and organized!)
-
I love these doors!
-
~ Here are a couple of vignettes ~
A vintage tiered wire basket holds small art canvases
And pink thrift store shoes with ribbon

For More of My Studio Photos:

(includes more studio vignettes and storage photos)

I will be wearing my party shoes and visiting many blogs
this weekend to see Where (other) Bloggers Create!

I am expecting to have a delightful time!!!

Love, love, love your beautiful studio-I'm so glad to meet you and will be following your lovely blog!

Charlene said...

Violet, Your studio is as amazing as I had expected but, even MORE! Oh where to begin with favorite things... the fur babies of course, that oak file for papers (under the stairs... yes, I went to the other site to find the extra photos), and your watch makers cabinets are amazing spaces for holding so many tiny things. Now I see where you created your magic (my photo of Reba). Thank you for the tour. I would love to come & see your studio in real life & meet you in person! I have had my GRANDS all weekend & am just now begining to visit the studios in the party but, it is my goal to go to each site & see each studio in the next few days. HUGS! Charlene

Robin said...

Is the boutique open? I could shop all day in there. I'll take those ~hot~ pink shoes and the vintage dresses. You have an amazing space! Lucky girl! Hugs, Robin

Kathleen Ellis said...

oh, Violet...I'm so in love with your studio!!! What a FABULOUS place for creating beauty!!! It is inspiring me to get mine cleaned up a bit...I've let it go a little as I transition into a new phase of my business!

Happy 1st day of Summer!

Lyn said...

Violet, What a lovely studio! Your's watch repair cabinets are to die for! But I must admit, your beautiful Afghan Hounds are what convinced me to reply. We lost our sweet "Mujah" five years ago, but the pain in our hearts are like it was yesterday. She was a "Blue", crazy as a loon, and smart as a whip. Thanks for sharing your photo's of your lovely dogs, it warmed my heart. Lyn

Violet I love your studio. The space is magical to me! From your gorgeous wood floors, to you hutches, all your drawers, to how you store your stuff and organize, to your gorgeous crown collection! That crown collection is amazing. I also loved your island.
There is so much I love, your brightness, your easel and your talent.

Really lovely space, I like it how its so light and it has a lot of great storage spaces... the work island is my favourite. And your two dogs just deligtful (I love the breed, thinking about getting a second dog (have a S poodle) and Im thinking about that breed)... They dont shed do they? Its more like poodle, its hair rather than fur? And I wanted to mention, that I like your water colour paintings, very nice.

Gail said...

Violet, your space is so welcoming, so pretty, I feel a sense of aw as I look around at all the beauty you HAVE created. I don't even know where to start to mention what has impressed me, let me just say ALL of you space has. Lucky you to get those wonderful jewelers desks, to cool and the big drawer unit in the closet (AND FOR FREE). Thank you so much for sharing with us and you have inspired me, given me idea.
Hugs

scrappingwithsherry1 said...

The vigenettes are great! I have seen a few items along the way that I would love to have for my own craft room and these treasures would be great! One thing is for sure I want to change the whole look of my craft space again!! When does it end? Hopefully never. :-) Thank You~ Sherry F.
