With so much to show you in my studio, I'll be devoting the next several posts, five in all actually, to closer looks at my new workroom. I do hope you'll enjoy them.
The stainless steel table, above, was from the kitchen of my former tea room. Under its vintage textile skirt, I store art and office supplies. (This same length of fabric once dressed up my tea room's front counter.) Now this corner of my studio is where I carefully wrap and pack the things that sell in my Etsy shop. I also use this surface for photographing items for my shop's listings by placing a white board on the table and using the wall as a backdrop.
On my desk, which is an old kitchen table in the perfect shade of green, you'll find a smattering of this and that — things that are both useful and that I simply like to look at while I work.
This sign once pointed folks to my antiques shop and tearoom. Although I've had it stored away since I closed my store in 2008, I've never hung it on the wall before. I love the way it looks flanked by a pair of charming vintage garden girls.
A small window's sill is the new home for my collection of vintage teapot-shaped ring holders. Aren't they the cutest?
That's all for now. I invite you to stop back for more studios details next time . . .
