Where Bloggers Create II...

It's a party!!!!!
Well it's finally here! It's time to see all the wonderful places that we bloggers create. Whether we blog in it...sew in it...paint in it...collage in it...or just plain nap in it...a woman needs a place to call her very own. My true creative space is in my garden, but this Spring I was lucky enough to move my studio from the 10x10 room I had in the house, to a little storage shed we had in the back yard. It is so much bigger than I am used to, and as you will see from my pictures, I am a long way from filling it up. I haven't found light fixtures yet, and I haven't gotten all moved in, but I would still love to have you come in and have a look around the place with me.

Thank you Karen at My Desert Cottage for hosting this wonderful event!


I'm not going to do a lot of talking, because I had trouble with loading pictures today, and it is now 1:00 AM and
I'm not very clever at 1 in the morning.
I do hope you enjoy looking around!


















On Mother's Day, my 28 year old son surprised me with this cabinet that he built just for my new space.
Of course I love it, and the fact that he made it himself just makes it all the more special.
As you can see it is ginormous...he must think I am a hoarder!
And yes...it is crammed full already.
























































Many of you will see things that I have either bought from you, or won in some wonderful giveaways.
Many, many special things are in here, and I enjoy having them around me while I sew and craft
and sleep.















































Look how much ceiling and wall space I still need to clutter up!









Just a tiny fraction of the fabric I have. Much more needs to come in here yet. I
definitely have a problem with fabric. Love the stuff!


























































































This table was my family's table when I was a girl. My parents bought it
in the sixties and I thought we were so rich when they brought it home. It was dark wood
with black wrought iron legs. Very Spanish...and now...not so much.


Notice T.T. Rabbit's bed. He always has to be laying at my feet when I sew.













































                                                            
                                                                   The loft is great for storage.




The girls above the french doors make very good company.




Inside my son's cabinet








Thank you all for stopping by and letting me show off my new studio. Believe me when I say...
it will never be this clean again.

Now for that nap!!!

Just GORGEOUS, June! You have such a beautiful and dreamy place to create! I love all the wonderful treasures you have stored and decorated. Can I please move into your studio, please? I'm low in maintenance and I would help weeding your garden :-).
Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Julia

Boxwood Cottage said...

Oh my goodness dear June your Studio is simply amazing and looks as if you have had it for years and nothing like a garden shed.
It is an instand fave!!!
Very inspiring, love it!
Lucky you I can imagine how much you must enjoy it!
So nice to meet so many of my blogging friends here at the WBC party today :)

The only thing I would have wished for was to have this party during the long winter. Cause like you I have so much to do in the garden right now and love to create in there, that it was quite hard to get some things done in my studio at the same time.

xoxo~ Carola

A wonderful place full of inspiration. With love, @nne

Alaina said...

June, it is wonderful. No girl could ask for a better place to be creative. I just love how you have stored everything in such simple containers but they are made to look beautiful. The space is filled with so much light. I know that if I had such a beautiful place you would not find me anywhere but there. Well maybe the garden but that's it. Thank you so for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi June!
Thank you so much for having us over! I have just gotten up but knew your new studio was the very first I HAD to visit this morning!
Forgive my jammies!
Your new studio is so amazing!!!!
I knew it would be! I have been dying to see it ever since you shared little snippets a ways back!
I totally love all of your goodies and wonderments!
It is so you! You and Rebeccas are so much alike! All of the detail! I am loving everything....including the cabinet your son built!
I hope you have a wonderful day...hope to see you out and about!
(I know what you mean about the garden...I practically move right outside this time of year!)
Hugs and blessings,
Love ya,

Hi June,
I can see you have been busy creating your very own charming space.
You have lots of treasures in there and I love how you displayed everything-buttons in jars etc.
Your son made such a lovely gift for you and you filled it so nicely.
I hope you enjoyed your nap!

Laura said...

Oh Miss June-

Can I move in???

It is just lovely dear friend,

June,

I am not surprised at all that your workspace is imbued with gorgeous sunlight and put together so beautifully! I must say I am a little jealous of your space:)

Hmmm...Have you ever been featured in Romantic Homes???Just an idea!
Have a great weekend!

Sweet Old Vintage said...

Just ever so lovely... This is just the only thing I really want for at this stage of my life... a simple little spot all my own to create... I haven't been able to make it happen yet.....

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Oh June, two words come to mind, "Lovely" and "Charming", and you are both of those as well... I could just get lost in your new studio forever! I am so happy for you... so many pretties to look at, I want to spend alot more time browsing around... too cute that little TT's bed is there, what a doll, doggie kisses TT! The cabinet your son made for you is beautiful and how special it must be, from his own hands... all of your little treasures look so pretty... really June, I wish you would open a shop with the gorgeous things you create, I would be your first customer! xoxo Julie Marie

Tarnished and Tattered said...

JUNE!
I've waited a long time to see the reveal of your new art space & I gotta say, it was well worth the wait! The building turned out just amazing. It looks like it belongs in the South of France somewhere in a little village. Love the loft, the floors & walls. The cabinet your son made is wonderful, a treasure that will be passed down for ages. The way you display you awesome collections of ribbon, buttons & lace is wonderful. I love it when I can see everything. Unfortunately for me a lot of my stuff remains behind closed doors out of the reach of little hands! LOL You create such beautiful things & your new space will inspire even more if that's possible. The bookcase stacked high with fabric is my fave, I don't know, I need to go look again, maybe not. It's all the bomb! Lisa

koralee said...

I have never seen such a space of such joy and beauty..I am in love with every single inch of it. I would never ever come out of there..my poor husband would be left all alone to fend for himself! This is my dream...one day..I hope.
Hugs ...xooxo now go have some fun!!!

Jane said...

I have been wanting to see the reveal of your studio since I first read you were moving it to your shed (it's not like any shed I've ever seen). I knew it would be beautiful but it was beyond my expectations! This is an absolutely gorgeous space. I just don't have the superlatives to do it justice!!
Thank you for sharing all the pictures. I will be back to this post again and again to study all of the details.

June, I knew I would love your space and I do! I have been waiting to see what you have done with it - you just gave us little teases - and you have outdone yourself. Yes, I know it isn't finished, but it is gorgeous! And it so reflects your beautiful sense of style!

Ah, you have a place to rest and read some gorgeous magazines, as well.

Vicki's Bit-o-earth said...

Oh June, to have a whole space like yours! I'd be in heaven, as you certainly are! Congratulations on your new space to create~

What a perfect son! Sons are wonderful, aren't they? I have three and count myself the luckiest woman on earth.

If I may ask ... where did you find those lovely clothes hangers that have a bell, key, heart and watch hanging from them?

There's so much to look at in your photos... I have to go back and look again! (:

stefanie said...

oh, its breath taking....just gorgeous, I see sooooo many treasures!!!! I love the loft...thank you so much for sharing...I might have to use some of your ideas!!

oldgreymare said...

Ah... June Bug,

It was so worth the wait. We all knew it would be wonderful, but it is beyond wonderful, beyond words.
It is the perfect representation of the woman we have all come to know and love.

It is soft, gentle, pure and refined. It is lighthearted, whimsical and filled with light. You can see your thoughtfulness in how things are placed and the care and attention you give to everything that surrounds you, and everything that surrounds you is special to you.

It is you and I am so happy to have finally visited your special place.

I will see these shots next in a magazine. Mark my words.

Blessed is the day I stumbled into that garden of yours.

Rebecca said...

Hi June Bug!
WOW... I love it all! Such a bit of heaven and you will love every minute of it. It is such an extension of your beautiful spirit, I can't wait to see the glory that will come out of it. All your treasures are just as they should be on display like little works of art in themselves. Good Job...
I will have to go back now and drool I mean look some more.
Many blessings to you

Rebecca

fairmaiden said...

Wow June!!!!

Your studio looks more like a shop than a studio...like we should be invited to come shopping there! And all your beauties would have price tags on them. I don't know how much I would get done in there, I think I would just lay on that sofa/daybed/bench with the Waverly red rose pillows and dream! I would be lost dreaming while gazing at all your beautiful things. I am a no-clutter person, but your clutter is gorgeous! Truly truly...a little slice of cottage heaven on earth.

www.MaisonStGermain.com said...

WOW! I am overwhelmed at how gorgeous, romantic and functional your studio is! And that cabinet made of love from your son is amazing. You are going to have the best time creating in your new space for sure!!!!!!Have a great weekend:)

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Oh June,
It's everything I imagined it would be and more. You did a beautiful job of pulling it all together for the party (it's a lot of work getting ready, isn't it?). So many lovely, lilting puffs of beauty to be savored with the eye and soul. Your space is truly one of peacefulness in its feel here, I can see why TT Rabbit needs to be in this space when you're creating lovely items!
Enjoy the party, I have been and am already full of new ideas.

Dear June,
If you just put a sleeping bag down on the floor, I will live there !!!! haha. There is enough in there for me to look at for at least a year..... and that's before you bring in the rest of the things !!
It is beautiful beyond compare. I love everything in there, from the table from your childhood to the tiniest little button. I know that you will create even more wonderful things in there.
Thanks so much for sharing it with us. XXXX

I don't know it I'd get anything done in such a beautiful space -I'd be dreaming all the time.
The cabinet your son made is very special - well-suited to such a lovely studio!

Cindy Geilmann said...

I've enjoyed my tour of your new studio so much. I loved the way you hung your seam binding. The sign for your blog is awesome and the wire squares are very cool. I really like the feel that the dried flowers with a toel (sp) bow give. Love, Love the Vintage women, oh and the bird cage a very classy, and I gotta have a ladder.

And the cabnet your son made is the best!

You have a beautiful way of blending your whites. I can't wait to go shopping with you. When are you coming to Utah?

Thanks for visiting me.

Big Hugs

Rosie said...

Oh June~Bug...this is an enchanting little space you have created to... "create" in. I am the prettiest shade of green right now, as my space has shall we say a few shades of white, cream, pink, turquoise...and every thing in between... of the paint from each and every piece of furniture to hit the store.{hmmm, thats quite a runnnnn on sentence} I think you get the picture...
your new cabinet is gorgeous...and you son is really quite wise to make it the size he did...such a lot of talent in one family.
have a great week...love Rosie

Oh June! What fun you must have had doing this. I am so jealous! :) Just a fabulous studio...I love the sofa in there. You've organized it beautifully. I wish I had fabrics like yours, would make food presentation so much fun. Every once in a while I go to Calico Corners and buy scraps but in an apartment, I just don't have the storage space.
I can't choose my favorite corner...I love it all. So dreamy and romantic. I'd never leave.

Oh June your creative space is just beautiful. I remember when it was just a twinkle in your eye not so long ago!!

Each photo was surpassed in loveliness by the next one. Oh my goodness, I would find it impossible to get anything done in such a beautiful environment - I would spend all my time just dreaming ...!!

You have created something so special June.

Apron Strings Productions said...

Dearest June,
I just wanted to say a warm hello. My Mom and I were just talking about you and how darn cute you were at the Farm Chicks show. My Mom said she just picked you out of the crowd, and I am so glad that she did and that you took the time to chat with us. I am so sad because the adorable photo that I took of you and your amazing shopping cart accidentally got emptied from our camera (along with a lot of other Farm Chicks pictures and of our road trip...I wanted to cry). Thank you from the bottom our hearts for taking the time to visit our blog. I am so glad you did because I am so loving your blog and all of the wonderful inspiration...it is true that every women needs a place to call her own...I need to get me one of those...I don't think I would ever want to leave!

Absolutely beautiful and so full of inspiration and such a serene place to create. I love how you have your laces in the covered cakes. I would just have to sit there and soak it all up and never get any work done. Great photography too!

June: Since I'm out of town I am taking the slower tour through all of these beautiful studios! I cannot believe that this is a SHED. It is more like a magical dream of a space. I couldn't believe it as I oohed and aahed over every single picture. This is just amazing and I loved every minute that I spent here, today!
