Sometimes all it takes is one new thing to get the ball rolling. In my case, it was a charming wooden bin with two drawers. Belonging to a dear friend, she knew how much I admired the piece that was hand made by her father-in-law long ago. I once told her to let me know if she ever wanted to sell it. Fast forward two years: I got a call from her last week offering it to me. Yippee!
I found the perfect spot for it in my studio — atop my refurbished vegetable bin. Now it holds sewing supplies.
When I cleared off the bin to make room for my new acquisition, I discovered a generous layer of dust. So I began to clean... and clean... and clean. (Once I started, I just couldn't stop.) My studio is chock full of my favorite things — all of the stuff I love but don't want to subject the rest of the house to. Apparently, my cherished collections are quite the dust collectors!
Before long, I had wiped off every surface and item, reorganized a bit, and made sure to eradicate every last dust bunny. And when my cleaning frenzy finally ended, I took these pics to share with you.
I do love a tidy studio!
