Saturday Fun, Sunday Organizing!!

Happy Sunday Friends!!

Yesterday while there was a break in our weather (We have been having some serious rain)
Mark and I went up to Ventura to drop some goodies off for Barbara. (Garden Memories)
This is what you see as you walk up to her lovely shop.

She has the most beautiful plants and pots!

This is the enchanting entrance. It is packed with lovelies!!

Here is one of the things I brought in. An Easter Party Hat!Remember on Friday, I introduced you to a new blogger, Martha? She makes fabulous charms!!
Here are some of her charms, with my boxes. (They go well together)That was yesterday. Now for today, I have been organizing my studio/office. I have been making so much stuff lately, including a big mess. So I finally got around to organizing.
I got this beautiful old box to store my ribbon in. My husband modified the inside for me.
It's pretty, and functional.


Here is Isabella, with her new lampshade wire head.


Remember my $10 hutch from last summer? Here it is again all organized and ready for me to get to work.
Some of my jars of pretties.





So that is what I have been up to this weekend. It's raining again!
If you get a chance, please visit Martha's new blog. http://mjornaments.blogspot.com/
Thanks!
Rosemary

Update for Monday, I got a comment from a Janie. She asked how to purchase some of my art pieces. Janie didn't leave a blog name or email, so I can't contact her.If you know Janie, or if you are Janie, my email address is on my blog.
Thanks!!

I think you and I are on the same wavelength! I, too, organized my studio this weekend. Your studio looks just lovely. Isn't it nice to have an organize space (at least for awhile) to work in? Happy creating! Amy

Hi Rosemary, I love the heart shaped ivy and I see another pot with a heart in it that is very sweet too.
Your studio is looking great, a perfect place to create. I adore Isabella, is she a flea market treasure?
We are having lots of rain here too. Stay cozy and dry. Linda

Hi Rosemary. I love the plant you bought, and your dress form looks so cute. I have one that I'm making a crown for, so she's dressed up for upcoming craft shows. :) ~Martha

Rosemary...I just wrote a comment and blogger says blogland or whatever is unavailable.

Trying again. I wanted to tell you how much I love this shop, it's wonderful!

I like the box your ribbons are in..great idea. Your hubby did a great job modifying it.

Wish you could send some of your rain to Missouri...we need moisture! Either rain or snow.

Your crowns are just too cute, and I love your jars full of "pretties". Makes me want to go out and find some jars.

Kim said...

I am very inspired by your jars of pretties! You may remember that I received several apothecary jars for Christmas & I think that this is a perfect use for them!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Love your mannequin and I am having studio envy big time! What a great place to create!!!
