Having Fun in my Sewing Room/Art Studio and bragging on my win!

Hi Bloggerettes!!  It's really just a sewing room but doesn't "Art Studio," sound so much more sophisticated!

One straw bag at thrift store...................... $2.00

Oodles of rosettes and laces....................... lots of time

Comments that I get from you.....................priceless!


I won these wonderful orbs a few months ago
in a giveaway by Low Tide High Syle
You know how we love our digits and numbers
and I think these look pretty great!

She is a very talented blogger with lots of style.
