The Cutest Craft Studio Ever!

I spent the weekend responding to each and every precious comment from over 400+ new to me bloggers after I was featured on SITS last Thursday. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Onto prettiness! Last Monday's post featured my friend Mary's adorable cottage bungalow. Today I am sharing her truly inspiring creative space. It is right outside the french doors of her master bedroom.


On the way I passed by this pretty table.



Sweet happy sighs.




I never thought I'd say this, but there was almost too much beautiful eye candy. Almost. :)



Vintage wallpaper and great new wrapping paper.




Dream? Absolutely.



It's so much goodness~ let's stop for a lunch break. Here is the centerpiece that was on Mary's kitchen table. She is so talented in SO many areas.


Why didn't my school lunches ever look as good as this? I am almost ashamed to admit that I ate everything.




All the girls: Maria, Mindy, myself, Trisha, Fran and Christi. Thank you for taking the picture Mary!


Ok, back to the studio. I love this flamingo! Thank you for the image Trisha.





Luscious vintage ribbon.


I could spend hours...no days~ creating here! It was so much fun.


Mary does rent out the space for birthday's, showers and great crafting events.


Thank you my sweet gypsies for a beautiful memory.



On Wednesday I will be taking you along to some of the places that gypsies shop. Prepare to dream.

To the individual who left an anonymous comment proclaiming I am not the owner of the photos, I am indeed the photographer. The last image was taken with my camera by another wonderful gypsy attending the event. I take copyright laws very seriously and am the first to give credit where credit is due. Please once again refer to the the group lunch photo where from the original post date I graciously indicated who the photographer was. While I appreciate your concern, I believe that your blogging police services are no longer needed on my blog.

Only in my dreams do I see such an elegant and beautiful crafting space! I can only imagine the inspiration that flows through a space like that. I love the photos you share of all these gorgeous spaces, it actually inspires me a bit to make my space a little more me. Beautiful photos, as always!

Dear Laura...Thank you so much for stopping by my little Blog. Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to comment.

HOW IS IT I've never found you before? Have I been sleeping? DRATS! I hate that!

Simply lovely my friend...I just must tag along to see what's going on. I digress...I do NOT KNOW what SITS is! :( I tried to figure it out but NO GO....

Blessings to you OH TALENTED ONE...God has certainly gifted your hands.

Love to you,

Rebecca

I missed your SITS day b/c I was at the beach...Congrats!

bluecottonmemory said...

I loved your pictures! And the detail. However, I think you could put anything on your blog presentation and it would look great. I absolutely love the colors, the patterns (I love polka dots and yours are just right).

I want my bedroom decorated with these colors and patterns! Have I said I thought it was beautiful!:)

Wow heaven!

I am not a huge crafts person and I still LOVE that place and would enjoy having lunch or a party there. Just beautiful and charming.

Looks like you had a blast! She seems like such a doll.

I adore those green cubbies and the lunch trays!
