I am joining Kathleen at Faded Charm today for another White Wednesday.
Can you believe that this is number 89 for her????
Not for me however, because
it's been awhile since I have played along.
This week I went looking for whites in my home and studio that I hadn't already shown
here on my blog, and this is what I came up with.
My friend Suzan sent this pretty little gift a long time ago when we first met through blogging.
It came in a package crammed with beautiful things that she had made and that I have
shown here before.
I love the simplicity of it.
I have an inner battle going on constantly within myself over how I choose to decorate my spaces.
One of my personalities would love a home packed full of nic nacs...
and so many pictures and beautiful things hanging on the walls
that there would be no wall showing at all!
And then there is a part of me that needs a serene surrounding...
space to breath...
Having a studio apart from the house has satisfied a little of the struggle.
In the studio I cram as much visual stimulation into it as I can.
Having so much out and around me helps with the creative process.
It keeps my mind full of ideas and dreams of the next project.
I know I don't share a lot of the things I make here on my blog...and I am trying
to get braver about showing them off. In the future I hope to do a post or two
about the things I make for my home.
I'm not at all shy about sharing the great finds I unearth though,
like this beautiful old light fixture part I discovered on one of my hunts.
I have been making more of the collage tags that I showed earlier using the garment tags I save.
My husband thinks I am buying new clothes just to make the tags.
I make the tags to lessen the guilt over buying so many new things for the closet!
(I say for the closet because my kids don't think I could possibly ever wear everything
that's in there) I don't get rid of anything))
Just a few of the thousand I'm working on.
I told you the closet was full!!!!!!
