a new studio space and more


Last week was full of unexpected surprises.

Our middle one decided to move home.

She is a junior in college and was missing her Momma ;)

Although that made me the happiest Momma, I had one problem to resolve.

When she moved out, I moved my studio into her room. YIKES.

You may remember her room transformation here.

Over the course of a few days, I managed to move it all into Maddy's old room.



It's a small room off of our family room.

At first I was a bit scared of the limited space.

But... 
it's kinda cozy in here and I feel connected to the world once again.




You may remember that little trip I took a few weeks ago?

This was one of the treasures I brought home.

It was Miss Mustard Seed's office chair.... 

I guess you could say it's kinda famous.

She told me that her sweet chair painted in Lucketts green was in a few magazine spreads.


I can see why..
well with all of that yummy green chippy paint and vintage charm.


It's comfy too!

You wouldn't believe me if I told you how much I paid for it I bet..

38.00 sweet smackers!!... I know


Did I mention that I moved every single thing in here while fighting the worst cold of my life..

yeah... that was the downside. 



The left side of the room holds my coat rack and "every little thing" sign that I paint.


You can see this wall and the back wall from my family room.

I'm kinda lovin' the view.


The antlers... 

Oh those wonderful antlers!!

They too were from Miss Mustard Seeds booth.

Rhoda spotted them first but thank goodness she didn't have a need for them.


On the right wall is a large window facing my patio.

We have a fountain out there and it makes for the perfect background noise.

So peaceful..


My only problem so far is the carpet.

We replaced the carpet in the last room with easy to clean wood like floors.

They looked great and were a breeze to clean up.

We may have to go this route once again.


In front of the window is a large fold out table.

It holds a lot of my junk and is a great place to work.

Not sure what happened to the shot of the table.


I have a pedestal that I use in the middle of the room to paint my larger pieces on.

I just move it around the room when need be.




I hope to settle in and tweak a few things here and there as I see fit along the way.

Funny story there...

While at the Chapel Market a few weeks ago, one of Layla's friends asked us about our homes.

She wondered if we all had older fixer uppers or newer homes.

We each took a turn sharing about our homes.

When my turn had come,

I explained that our home was built about 14 years ago.

I proceeded to explain that I loved twerking around the house.

Oh my word...

As soon as "twerked" escaped out of my mouth, I could feel my face glow with embarrassment.

Did I just say twerk?

I did.

Lets just say we all had a good laugh that day.

  1. I wish I lived closer, as I would loved to have shopped at the chapel market and met all of you. Great find!

  2. Love your new space and how lucky to have your daughter home again! The 'twerking' story cracked me up, as in laugh out loud! I recently made a similar comment in front of my 14 year old daughter - she almost died of embarrassment....too funny!

  3. Your craft room and office look great. I'm sure Momma is glad daughter is home but that must have been some rush job! Looks great.

  4. I was there at the Chapel Market and saw the "sold" tag on your chair! I thought that whoever bought it sure is lucky! And it's you. It looks great at your house.
