Where Bloggers Create 2011


My studio is also my guest bedroom.

Here's where I blog away....

...at a desk that my husband used as a child.

I sit on this old chippy garden chair that was given to me by a friend.

 Here's where I create my jewelry pieces...
the dresser was in my first apartment and has followed me ever since.

An old glass and iron serving tray is my work surface.

I added ruler markings to the inside of the drawer for measuring chain.

 An old, painted, pressed ceiling tin serves as my inspiration board...

 ...it is filled with gifts from special ETSY and blogging friends....

...and anything that "speaks to my heart."

Another old dresser serves as a work surface and...

 ...a place to store fabric...

...and "ruban" (ribbon).

More measurements on the inside drawer "lip" make it convenient to measure my ribbon without having to grab a yard stick or ruler.

An old hutch stores a multitude of supplies...

... and shelves are  filled with destash and tresors.

My original coverless book bundle...

...and jars filled with destash...

...and this and that.

One of my many head vases....
I adore this collection.

A trio of old suitcases store more of my supplies....

...French ephemera and "lacet" (lace).

Wicker hampers hold my jewelry supplies, lace and millinery flowers.
I embellished each tag with "visual" reminders of what's inside each of them....
..."fleurs" (flowers).... 

..."lacet" (lace)...

...and "bijoux" (jewels).

 An old file cabinet that I found curbside holds paper ephemera and...

...more old books.

A bedside table holds more coverless books...

...ready to be made into.... 

...my signature "Coverless Book Bundles"....

My precious bust of Ste. Therese.

I painted a canvas with my "symphony."

An old Singer sewing machine table serves as my "stamping station." It reminds me of the one my grandmother had in her sewing room.

A vintage wire dish rack is the perfect way to organize my tags and stamp sets...

 Two old drawers store more of my stamps and ink pads....

 ...and tresors are on display below the sewing machine.

One of my beloved birds nests....

Oodles of supplies stored in jars on three-tiered wire racks...

 I love using old baking pans to store more of my "destash"...

I have an affinity for vintage buttons...

...and bits and pieces from "a time gone by."

An old liqueur set, which once belonged to my grandparents, helps to organize buttons and old hat pins.

I always have an ample supply of ribbon and coffee dyed seam binding at the ready....

Another bedside table holds pieces that inspire.

 A wrought iron daybed is the perfect place to rest awhile...

 ...on some of my favorite French pillows.

 A rusty garden chandelier brings the outside....in.

And an old mirror reflects inspiration from across the room...

A vintage ink illustration speaks to my heart...

 ...and my sweet chalk cherub holds more of my beloved charms and medals.

An old vanity tray holds more supplies.

A cloche displays one of my sweet oiseaux and a crown i won as a girl in my neighborhood pageant.

 Vintage game pieces represent the "initials" of my blog and ETSY shop name.

A fabric-covered memo board displays more inspiration...

...and a petite shelf holds my collection of old bottles. 

Old vases hold more supplies....

...and a framed print from an old book just "speaks to me."

 A collection of Mary items sit on my desktop...

 ...and I am surrounded by beauty and inspiration.

 My precious, hand knitted nest from Vicki...
one of my most cherished gifts.

 My grandmother...the French seamstress...
one of my inspirations.

 Words that inspire...

 My grandparents...

Some of my hand-rolled speckled clay eggs...

 ...and a sweet angel watching over me as I blog. 

One of my altered collages...

...and petite tresors that i've collected over time.

 And, finally.... my desktop vignette....

"Every heart has it's passion...
doing what you love gives your spirit wings."
~words to live by~

  2. Such gorgeousness, I love it all! Thanks for sharing your space....:).

  3. Your art room takes my breath away - you have done such an incredible job of storing all your supplies in such a stunning and artful way. The whole room is just eye candy - beautiful!!

  4. Your studio is gorgeous, Michelle! I don't know where to start. I love the striped wallpaper combined with all your beautiful white furniture. Your decorated ceiling tin is fantastic. All your supplies look so very yummy in those jars and baking pans. You must have been excited to find that wonderful file cabinet on the curveside. Your wrought iron bed looks very comfy and like a great place to relax. The vintage stapler is a cool piece and all your vignettes are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your fabulous studio!

  5. I'm sorry. I just don't want to go look at anybody else's studio right now! Haha Just kidding. But only a teeny little bit. This room is the perfect room sized collage that reflects all the rest of your beautiful work. I have tons of stuff in random places all over the house. True, I haven't been creating for the past year. Too long. But your space is an INSPIRATION. A little serene chapel of creative beauty and loveliness. I've seen Debra's (Common Ground) lovely room, and now yours. A most excellent beginning to the exciting event! Bravo! And thanks for sharing your inner sanctum.

  6. Oh my sweet, your studio is just stunning!! I would adore a space such as yours. I hope you and your husband and family are doing okay. I've been thinking and praying for you.

  8. It's like I've looked into your soul, Michelle. Your studio is perfect and exactly how I imagined it. You set the standard of a perfect studio. To be envied that is for sure, my friend.

    I absolutely love everything and when I saw the gifts I've sent you, I smiled, oh, you know I did.

    Blessing to you and like the comment above me, I do not really need to see anyone else's studio. Yours is that beautiful.

  9. OMG I love your creative space!!!!!!!!!! And all of your beautiful supplies and decor!

    Dawn... The Bohemian

    I could spend hours looking at all the treasures. Your pictures are splendid. The bust of Ste. Therese is exquisite. Just a beautiful tour. Tresors, indeed!


  12. Ahhhhh Michelle can I be your guest pretty please?
    My what a treat this must be to sleep in that elegant and pretty studio-guest room of yours filled to the brim with glorious details.
    I think I would stay away all night marveling at all your gorgeous treasures and think about what to create with them!
    I have to come back looking at this aray of eye candy again with more time.
    Happy WBC party!!!
    xoxo~ Carola

    Ohmygoodness! Where to begin.
    What an amazing room! I want to come for a sleep over! But I don't think I'd get much sleep because I'd be poking thru all those shelves & drawers. So many great ideas to borrow. Especially the ruler marks inside the dresser drawers. Brilliant! No wonder you create magic.
    Thanks for sharing it with me.

  29. I just want to come over and sit awhile. This is the most beautiful area I have seen in a long, long time. I wish I could convert mine to "shabby and old" again...someday.
    Big Hugs,

The vintage suitcases and all your beautiful collections. I think this is the nicest space I have ever seen. Just love it all! Thanks for sharing!

  93. Hi Michelle,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It's so funny because I had just browsed this post the other day (and was totally drooling). I didn't have time to leave a comment at that time (blogger has been giving me problems trying to leave comments lately.) I hope it works this time. Anyway, I just LOVE your creative space, it's just gorgeous. I think I'm going to use your idea and make measurement marks on my desk drawers.
    Have a blessed week!

  94. I am in love with your blog and shall follow it hence forth. I wish I could crawl through my computer screen and see your studio in person! It looks so peaceful and inspiring! It has the essence of what I want to do with my space when I (finally) have a "real" house. Beautiful, beautiful.

  95. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind words. We love many of the same things for sure. Looks like you do a lot more with your beautiful things than I do. How I'd love to be a guest in that room and get to see all the treasures up close. Hope you're having a nice week...


  96. Michelle,

    Tres bien! It is beautiful. I'd happily be a guest in your guest room/studio. But you know I'd be touching the tresors. I would just HAVE to. :-) Be well my friend!

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful space,

  97. Dear Michelle,
    Sorry that you couldn't read my message, i thought that goole translate would do the translation between you and me, computers are not always my best friends, you see :)

    I completely loved your studio, never seen anything like that before, it's just into my style, really cute, almost dreamed about it last night :)

    So i was very glad that i could follow your blog and that you joined mine too!
