Where Bloggers Create - Better Late Then Never...

oops!
you caught me in the middle of working...


 let me put away my tools of the trade


and tidy up this mess of mine


just gotta finish up these last few...


to add to this finished pile


there we go
all neat and tidy once again
now I can invite you in

welcome to my space...


a look to the right...


and a look to the left...


and to the far far right...


my room is a little 10x10 space
but I have utilized every square inch of it!


and the pretties of the room begin...






lots of storage for supplies...


and some fun pieces



love this mermaid in a seashell frame that Grace from Pink in the City
made for a swap we were both in - I was lucky to have her for a swap partner


and I love my storage boxes
all in that pretty aqua blue color
jewelry boxes repurposed!




and yes
all of these boxes have something inside them
it's just remembering the "what" that is inside the box
that is challenging!


shiny bling to add to jewelry pieces
I thing I have enough to last me awhile!


some chandelier crystals to add to some project I'm making...


love this egg tray from anthropologie



and a fabulous recent find from oregon
and look at the perfect shade of aqua it is!





many glasses on hand
because I always seem to misplace them


and of course a fan to cool me off
while I spend hours and hours soldering





I always remember to p...l...a...y




many pages of old vintage text to add to my glass pendants




love this old stamp holder
repurposed to hold tiny salt shakers full of bits and pieces...



and when I do get to play
I come up with crazy ideas for forgotten photos


I am definitely following my passion
doing what I love to do


it brings me joy
bringing others joy





and I still love my apron made by the amazing Holly


and this little gem I made was mailed off to a special recipient


someone who has made a difference in so many peoples lives


giving back to her
what she has given to me


I hope she enjoys it!


and now, I must get back to creating
these little bottles are waiting to be filled with pretties
all soldered up for someone to wear around their neck



and these lovelies
waiting to be made into special adornments


thank you for visiting my little space
and thank you to Karen Valentine for hosting this
hop on over to her blog to see all the other glorious spaces out there in blogland!

It may be tiny but boy does it pack a powerful punch! I am inspired to get busy...my favorite is the stamp holder with the shakers...I just bought one of those today and didn't know what I was going to do with it...but NOW I do!

Your space is one of my favorites! Your display of your vintage collections is so beautifully done and I'm lovin' your soldered jewelry. I've recently found myself drawn to them and wanting to give it a try.
