I’ve been having a blast working on the new sewing studio.
Let me just sit here a minute or two and catch my breath before I take you back up those thirty two steps for a sneak peek.
I don’t know if I mentioned this, but the studio is HUGE! There’s a kitchen, a bathroom, two medium sized rooms and a HUMONGOUS space with 20 foot ceilings. I should also mention that it’s old and rather rough around the edges. So I decided to just go with the funk factor and decorate in what I’m calling “Funky Cheese-ball” which is actually thrift shop chic (of course) with a dash of vintage 60’s and 70’s thrown into the mix. Can’t take this sewing studio thing too seriously, you know.
But I’m totally in love with it and I have a hard time leaving at the end of each day.
Get a load of this great second hand curtain fabric that has been tucked away under the camper couch for years that was perfect for the kitchen.
And of course, you absolutely have to have a great big cheese-ball lamp to go with all those pineapples and peacocks, don’t you think.
Then there really is no better barware that goes with Funky Cheese-ball than these thrifted turquoise and gold beauties.
Just so you know, it hasn’t all been cleaning, thrifting, painting and decorating. There has been some sewing going on here, too.
And of course I had to find a spot for my most favorite typewriter EVER!
I wonder what I did to deserve all the generosity from the thrift store gods lately? Funky Cheese-ball lamps have practically been falling out of the sky.
It’s not all peacocks, barware and light fixtures. There is some evidence of sewing….
Now really, who do you know that has a blue oval mirror? And who would actually offer to lend you their blue mirror for your studio?
My friend Linda! That’s who!
And if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, then you know how much I hate to mend. I know weird, huh! The words on the mirror are so ironic, but so fitting.
So, before we head back down those thirty two steps, I think it’s worth mentioning that I have a new man in my life. I’m totally enamored with his sexy turquoise, his masculine goldness and all his delicious designs. I just can’t get enough of…
Where has he been all my life?
I want it all. (Hint, hint)
Well, there is still a long way to go before the studio is ready for the big Book Launch Party, but I thought it would be fun to keep updating you as it is slowly transformed.
Next time… more funky lamps and some painted 70’s mediterranean cheese-ball goodness…. :)
