Where Bloggers Create 2012!

Where Bloggers Create officially starts on July 14th but I will be at Vintage Whites Market, so here's my contribution early! I have a very tiny new house and have utilized my dining area for a studio! It's definitely a work in progress! Please become a 'follower' on my blog and I will put your name into the basket for an upcoming giveaway! Thank you for visiting!

a collection of 'stuff'

My studio/dining area - still deciding on something for the wall! 

grandma's sewing machine

antique quilt blocks and more 'stuff'

delicate paper lace doilies (might give a few of these away!)

lace is my passion

more lace! 

this space holds just a small portion of my textiles, laces, etc

I love to use lace and trims when I'm papercrafting, making bunting or altered art. Your collection is lovely! Thank you for sharing.

I am seeing a lot of dining rooms turned into studio/craft rooms! I think it is a great idea (especially being handy to the kitchen for coffee and tea!) I am now a follower and cannot wait to come back and see your creations!

I have been here twice and have not left a comment...my bad.
I wish I could be that organized, you would die or laugh if you saw my craft/junk room. Please come over a fix it for me!!
Again, I loved meeting you. Next time let's do lunch or something.
Next....Farm Chicks!!!!
