Where Bloggers Create!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been waiting for you. Come on in to the place where I create.  Kick your shoes off and get comfy.  Go ahead and hop up on the cushy daybed and rest your head on some of my
pillows.  Mind you now, this room is nothing fancy.  It's just all about me and who I am and what I love.

While you're here, check out this wonderful shabbilicious
custom made work table.  My friend Jeff, at Miss Minnie's Antiques made this.  Isn't it wonderful!

        Go ahead and look around.  I cleaned it up a little so you can see the pretty pink toile curtains that I made just for this room.
I love pink and  when it's toile, it's even better. Yes?

Oh, by the way, I have started another pillow right here.
What do you think?

My sewing machine isn't anything special. 
Maybe someday I'll have one of those fancy-smancy kinds.
This is where I display some of my gifts and cards from
blogger friends, look close you might recognize some of them.

Sometimes I get lost in here...

Inspiration is everywhere....




  Whenever I get a creative idea you can be sure that it will be accented with a ruffle or a flounce or lace.  Chances are it will be pink or a creamy white.  Most likely there will be a rosette or two along with some vintage buttons and some rhinestones.  I guess I'm just a girlie girl.  Who would ever thought that I was a real tomboy growing up.

I haven't always had a special place to create. Since I've been blogging for nearly 10 months  and opened an etsy shop, I needed a space just for me.  This room is one of our spare
bedrooms and now it's all mine!

Of course, someone else thinks it's all hers too.

I hope you enjoyed the tour but no need to leave so soon.
Stick around and we will have some tea and cake.
Be sure and take one of my cards with you so you won't forget me.

Thanks to Karen at My Desert Cottage for hosting
Where Bloggers Create II.
I can't wait to go check out some of the wonderful spaces that are being revealed to us during this exciting event.  This is so much fun!
Thank you Karen.

I'm also linking to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.  Since its inception, Pink Saturday has become an icon here in blogland.  So, if you haven't joined in be sure and check out what all the buzz is about.

Thank you my dear sweet bloggerettes.  I'm so glad that you stopped by to visit where I create.

~~big ole hugs~~

What a great space, Sissie! I'm am totally with you on the pink toile ~ love it! Your custom table is great and I like the storage you get underneath, too. I wish I could take over my one small spare bedroom, but with the chance of going on the market in another year, I hate to fix it all up and then have to take it all down and pack it up again. So glad you shared your creative space!

Oh my sweet Sissie Girl,
I love the banner to match the glorious post! I could just lay up in that comfy bed, read me some mags, eat up some Goobers on the white bedding & gossip with you while you make me a pillow! Sound good?! I think so. Love your fabric stash, love your inspiration board, love the stack of pillows with ruffly bottoms & the botanical pillow in the making. All of it awesome & completely Sissie-fied! Lisa

ladydi said...

Hi Sissy
I love your room. I can see how it would be inspiring to create. I love the curtains too. The room is sooo beautiful. I would love to have a room like that. I love the pillows, would you do a tutorial on how you make your pillows with the rosettes. They are so special.



Karen said...

GIRL! Love it all . . . it's so clean! It's just fresh and girlie and . . . I would love to jump on that bed! Love the picture of you "lost" in the pillows.
And I spotted our Sorority shot!!! I can't wait to see what you do with it on Friday!!! YAY!
Thanks for sharing! karen

June said...

Sissie your studio is just full of yumminess. I think I could do some serious creating in there too. Everything that comes out of there is just as yummy as the room itself.

CailinMarie said...

this is a lovely space - all that white! I love white but can't manage to live with it. I'm a clutz - and spill things - and the dog leaves black fur everyplace and I just don't seem to be able to keep the white crisp. But that is lovely!

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

Sissie, that room has YOU written all over it! What a beautiful room to make all of your wonderful goodies. I would have that tea and cake now thank you, then you can try and convince me how you were once a tomboy! I loved my visit what an inspirational space. Theresa

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Have a wonderful week!
