My first double post.
First is Show & Tell Friday hosted by Kelli over at There's No Place Like Home. I think I'm addicted to this, because I seem to be coming up with something that doesn't take forever to post for the last couple of weeks. YAY! So thank you Kelli for hosting this very fun event. be sure to jump over to Kelli's blog and visit all the other great entrees this week.
This week I'm going to share with you a little more of my workroom. It was becoming a mess, so I ended up gong to Home Goods with fingers crossed, and of course, I did not walk out disappointed.
I found these cute canisters for my ribbons and lace.
I put it all together last night. And everything looks
so much better. Now I can see what I have with just a glance.
I have become addicted to vintage ribbon and lace.
Even just little bits and pieces! I love digging through it all!
There is a wonderful vendor at the Rose Bowl Flea Market
who has a wonderful selection of vintage lace,
ribbon and buttons. I could spend hours there!
Some of this is vintage, and some isn't. I've put lace in one and ribbon in the other.
And the larger one is for used ribbon and
lace that I think I can reuse.
The canisters look so pretty sitting there
with all the different textures and colors.
Right next to them is my leaded bowl ($4 yard sale find!)
full of vintage buttons. Isn't the bowl gorgeous?
Next to that is my little mosaic box I made at
An Artistic Affaire a few weeks ago.
And next to that are my ribbon boxes that
are STUFFED full of new ribbon.
So my worktable is now organized again,
but now that I have so much more "stuff"
I have to use it for storage too!
(Please don't let my husband read this post!)
Because over on top of the paper storage
(next to MORE new ribbon) is
a big hat box full of . . .
The BIG 100 yard spools of ribbon and lace that
I can't fit anywhere else. (hehehe)
In fact there was so much, I looked at my "pretty"
antique bobbins and thought "Put them to good use!"
So I wrapped a few of my 100 yards of lace
onto a few of them and now once again can see what I have.
Tada! I Love the way it looks.
And that is my cleaned up work table in my favorite room in the entire house.
It's time for Marty's Cloche Party! I've been looking forward to this. Marty from over at A Stroll Thru Life is hosting this, and I can't wait to see what everyone shares! Be sure to jump over to her blog and see for yourself!
I've just started collecting my cloches this year. And I love them!
I loved all my Easter display's. So I will reshare those with you now.
Remember to click on the pictures and they will enlarge.
For those of you who know me - you'll remember I don't have a lot of things out for the summer. I just don't like dusting it all, and I leave my doors and windows open as much as I can.
So I really only have them on display in my "new" hutch. And for some reason, I cannot get a picture with either camera without all the "rings" appearing. So . . . Use your imagination! They look REALLY pretty (all enclosed and kinda dust free!).
Now go over to Marty's blog and check out all the rest! Have a great evening!
