House and studio photos...

I snapped a few photos around the house and in the studio when I started my Spring cleaning
 and thought I would post a few today.
Nothing's changed much, but I was in the mood to share some corners and views
that I liked as I cleaned away the dust.

A favorite linen fabric I sewed into a pillow...
don't know the maker or the name of the linen, but it looks so cottage.
I've had the yardage for years. 

Lots of rain here lately, 
and it's hard to keep white things white when muddy paws
are around.
Jackson and T.T. Rabbit's favorite place in the house is on our bed.

A lavender sachet bought at my favorite shop Rebecca's.

dried lily of the valley in a little silk coin purse.

A little re-arranging in the entry and living room.

As you can see, Jackson is not camera shy.

We've had such a light and sunny Winter this year. It has 
truly been beautiful this year.

The past two weeks have been rainy and mostly cloudy, and although
I love the sun, I also enjoy rain when we get it.
I am in a part of Idaho where rain doesn't happen often, so it's a welcome change.

The studio has also gotten a good cleaning and straightening.
(looked like a bomb had gone off in there)
it always looks like a bomb went off  : )

The only reason it is still clean this weekend is because on Monday --Thursday
I left home to go see my mom, sister, and daughter for a few days on the other
side of the state : )

I love fussing with this shelf and I'm always adding or taking away something on it.

 I have a bad case of writer's block and haven't been able to sit and write an interesting post in
weeks and weeks and weeks.
I think I have been too busy to think about anything interesting and heartfelt.
I'm sure it will pass and I'll be going on and on about something.

I have been working on so many
projects all Winter and when I do that I don't do anything else
but think of finishing and starting something new.

This has actually been one of the most productive Winter's for me on record : )
 Someday soon I will show you a little of what I have gotten accomplished.

Most of what I've been doing however is finishing up house projects like painting, organizing
and de-cluttering and I promise you won't have to be
exposed to all of that,
but I have also done some projects and sewing in this studio of mine.
I am thankful everyday for a sweet husband who wanted this for me and made it happen.
I never take it for granted when I walk through it's doors.

I would like to share a couple of giveaways that I was lucky enough to win.
First was a giveaway hosted by Janet Coon of Shabby Fu Fu.
It was a 50 dollar gift certificate to the Post Road Vintage shop.
I have now known Janet for sometime as I know many of you have, and I
remember her being one of the very first blogs I found when I was
introduced to blogging. I have learned so much from you Janet and thank you for the many
inspired posts you have authored.

Thank you so much Janet!

The next giveaway was from Terri at the beautiful blog Artful Affirmations.
I so enjoy Terri's blog and the art she creates.

What a beautifully wrapped gift!
 Don't you love the little doily under the lovely paper rose and ribbon?
Nothing cuter than a pink rooster tag!!!

but then....
just look at what I won!!!!

Love, Love, Love It!!!

Thank you so much Terri.
The bracelet is all the perfect colors for Spring!
I will really enjoy wearing this!!!!


Trisha said...

Your white cat is just too cute! I want to redo my bedroom and have a white bedspread, I just don't know how I would keep it clean with a little dog that thinks it is her bed too. Glad I am not the only one with this problem! I hope you are having a great spring so far, even though it never wants to stop raining!


Victoria said...

Oh goodness, so much eye candy! Your studio looks like any woman's dream...I could get lost in there for hours! Your home is so gorgeous!!!

Seawashed said...

Your blog is always a delight to visit even if you do have writers block....I've been writing up a storm in my personal journal but not so much on my blogs. We go through seasons I believe. I come here to see the beauty because photography is definetly your gift to us. I still just love how you decorate your home. It is cottage coziness and happiness to my heart. ox

Connie said...

When are you going to learn "I don't do dust", sugar?!

Here in the valley with all the farmers around us it does no good to dust except every year or two. ;-)

Beautiful photos.


NanaDiana said...

It was wonderful to find a post from you here today. Your home is so beautiful. I just love it and would feel 100% comfortable there.

Your wins are wonderful and I can't wait to see what you accomplished this winter. Blessings to you- xo Diana

Oh my goodness June I just want to pin every photo you have on this post! Your house is so very lovely and you are so good with your camera!

I have the cutest little mantel area that I did for my last post but you really don't see how darling it is because my pictures just don't capture it like I would like.

Writers block. I have given up on thinking that I can say anything with grace and imagination in my posts. Never was gifted in the word department except being able to talk a mile a minute!

Oh I am so looking forward to seeing what you have been working on! I am still enjoying the process of the creative space I am working on though with the warms days the last few days it has been outside for me!!! I was thinking of you yesterday wondering when you plant your sweet peas? I am thinking maybe I should plant those now. Have to get out my little garden/seed shelves- keep saying that but have yet to do it.

Boys left last Saturday and still have lots of work left on the house. Not sure when they will be back to get the rest done. I have been racking and sweeping up pink paint chips all around from the pressure washing they did. I think my yard will never be the same after that!

bee blessed

Junebug said...

I know what you mean about writers block! That is pretty much me all the time. But with your photography talent you don't have to say a word, right you not talk!! Your pictures today are wonderful like usual. I am in love with Jackson! I think I need a white kitty, darn it, why do I have cat allergies, ugh! Thank you for your post this afternoon. It made my day and a great inspiration to kick off my weekend. Maybe I will get something accomplish, waiting to see all your projects! Hugs and much love from this June to you June!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Hi June,
What a delicious post! Your photos are an absolute dream. I love all the little touches and beautiful flowers everywhere that are so uniquely you! I always have to come back time and time again and just enjoy something else that my eye didn't catch the first time.
Big hugs,
I loved it all!

Vintage Home said...

So pleased to see you had posted...I have been awol a bit for our spring break & was wondering what you had been up to!
I see you have done a lot! Your home is so inviting and nothing says welcome more that a cat ...awake on the floor or asleep on the bed! It just feels right to come home to a pet!
I am crushing on all your slip covers and have started a project here in the same spirit!
Your screaming in my head.... as you say it is so right for spring!
Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend.....still raining here too...but sunny in my heart!

Anne said...

This is going to sound silly.But I was just thinking of you.I am that way if I have not heard or seen someone in life or blogland I wonder what they have been up too.Your home is always so lovely.I am sure you are getting ready to get in your beautiful garden.

Unknown said...

June, your home is just exquisite! I'd NEVAH EVAH be able to have white with all these guys ... no joke! It is such a joy to visit those that can decorate with white, to enjoy.

Where did you get that white appliqued lamp shade?

Your cat is such a beauty ... I loved black cats, & had many.

Your gifts are wonderful! I so love that bracelet ... lucky you.

So glad you had such a lovely visit. I do know that you were thrilled to travel for a bit. So glad Landon is doing better now.

Well, those roses aren't available. I tried etsy & ebay but they aren't the same ... I'll keep poking around.

Have a beautiful day, my friend ~
Hugs & love,

Everything looks gorgeous!!!
I love that lavender sachet and the silver pedestals in a line on your "working" shelf. I'm glad to know that my workspace isn't the only one that almost always looks untidy.

I hope you are enjoying the spring even if it is always raining...


Draffin Bears said...

Dear June,

Your home is gorgeous and I love everything about it, so romantic and dreamy.
From the lily of the valley you have dried ( did not know you could do this) and really love your pretty linen and the silver goblets with your pretty supplies.
Congratulations with your wins, do love the pretty bracelet.
Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend and thanks for sharing a lovely post.

Hi June,
It is so good to hear from you! I love seeing all the beautiful pics of your home and studio.
I am looking forward to seeing your new garden pics soon as well.Hopefully we both get an early spring.

It is a blessing for sure to have a husband who makes your dreams come true!
Have a lovely week!

Lovely post from your home,June. What a beautiful home you have.

Oh June, such a beautiful post, from you this saturday morning. Your home looks so beautiful, and "smiling" so sweet and inviting-pieceful , and I love your Jackson, he is also beautiful.
Your studio shelf, OH your gorgeous hearts, and all little collections are so lovely.
Congratulations on winning the stunning bracelet from dear Terri, she makes wonderful pieces.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...


June, your studio is inspiring. I have resigned from my teaching job, I will be a substitute teacher next fall, and I am redesigning my goals. My studios (one in the basement, one upstairs that serves as an inspirational space) will be undergoing changes to shape my focus. WHITE and GRAY and pastels will be the highlight and now all I have to do is learn to take GOOD PICTURES!!!!!

You inspire and I wish you the most BEAUTIFUL DAY! Anita

Katherine said...

I love the softness of your style, it is always so romantic. It is easy to see that many of the items on your shelf have a story from a past life, that draws me in every time. I love thinking about where the little treasure may have lived before.

Writers block - hmmm, it seems there are a few of us right along there with you. I remind myself often that writing isn't any different than having a heartfelt conversation with a friend. And you lovely lady, always bring your heart out to warm your readers.

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Ohhhhh your home is just so beautiful!! You are totally making me want to do some more spring cleaning and rearranging :)

Susan EvelynAndRose said...

Oh, I adore your home Judy! Every photo is just taking my breath away. Your studio shelves are filled with delights, and your rooms are light, bright and so cheerful.
Thank you for sharing this beauty with us. You received great gifts, too!
Take care,

maría cecilia said...

Always waiting for you to post about anything you would like to share with us, and always a delightful moment looking at your home, your shelves and everything around, speclially all your garden dried flowers you have all over your home... which I never manage to make as graceful as yours!!
many hugs to you my dear June

Low Tide High Style said...

So glad you are getting things done around your beautiful home. I hope to one day build a studio, it's a dream of mine. That bracelet is beautiful and I can't think of anyone who will wear it better!


wendy said...

Oh my June...I want to come spend an afternoon in your house and studio. I'd love it!!!!! I'd love to relish every single decorating idea of yours, and sense of style. I'd DRINK it all in thise limited brain of mine.
I marvel at all the Beauty you put into your world.

HOW do you keep things white with pets?....I am surrounded by MUD and my dog tracks it everywhere. It is the bane of my existence....between the dog and hubby dragging hay that attaches itself to every part of his clothing.
You see....I HAVE NO MUD room. Our house is incredibly teeny and without sounding ungrateful...I LONG for more room...for space and a MUD ROOM. someday????

So looking at your blog and your beauty makes me smile.
hugs to you my friend.

Vicki said...

June, your home and studio are both just as charming and pretty as you are! I love everything you create, and the way you arrange everything, so, so sweet!!! I hope you are having a fun weekend enjoying your family. It was so kind of your dear hubby to build you that studio where you can create to your hearts content. Love always, Vicki

Hello Sweet June
I am so happy to see your post! Your photos are as wonderful as ever... I hope you had a great visit with your Mom, Sister & Daughter. I look forward to your seeing your magical garden this Spring as well. Take care my friend..

shabbyfufu said...

Hi dear June...

I have been not the best blogger at keeping in touch lately, and am so happy that I had a chance to stop by and catch up with you this evening!

I'm honored and blushing a little at your comment about me and thank you....all at the same time, lol. Always very happy to inspire and I think that it's what I treasure most about the contacts that I've made on line with other creative souls. And speaking are so creative; from your photos to your projects and home decor!

I had no idea that you have so many grandies...what a blessing, each and every one. friendship,

Heaven's Walk said...

Oh June! Your house is just as beautiful as your gardens! It's so soft and romantic - and Jackson fits in to the color scheme just perfectly! lol! Your vignettes are so utterly sweet and as usual, look like something right out of a Fifi O'Neill book! :) Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!

xoxo laurie

Cindy said...

It's always such a treat to see a new blog post from you on my sidebar. Your photos are so so pretty. I love the silver goblets in your studio. And, i'm madly in love with your kitty. I used to have a white cat with blue eyes, and pink ears, and i LOVED him. Nice how you are in appreciation for being able to have time to create too...


Ann Marie said...

Writers block?? psh.

Um.. I'm pretty sure you could just put up any picture daily.. and you'd stay famous. :)

Love the pinks and Jackson.

Beautiful photos lady!

Unknown said...

With such a beautiful home and studio, I'd say writers block doesn't matter a bit. Your gorgeous photos speak for themselves. Plus you have a matching cat? It's all too perfect girl!!

Connie (aka LOU) said...

June -
Where do I start? First, I absolutely love your Jackson. So sweet. Whether you have writers block or not, your pictures are gorgeous so on those days the words don't come, we will suffer with just your pix :) The fabric on your pillow is just my style. Feel free to send it to Illinois. I will take your front door too. It is kind of mission style and will fit in nicely with our home. Throw in a bowl of those lace hearts (like those too.) What's the story on that odd shaped shade you have? Have you told the story on that and I missed it? Looks way cool. I'm also a big fan of silver and I'm liking your collection ~ alot! Spring cleaning is my favorite time. You can't beat the smell of clean if you know what I mean. Congratulations on your Romantic Home piece but you should probably be a regular. Beautiful bracelet ~ and the most important ~ congratulations on your beautiful grandchildren, including the most recent.

You have come a long way since those days on the farm and milking 70-100 head, which are a lot of cows. Hope you had a parlor or at least a pipeline. (BTW, thanks for all of your comments. I think I have caught up now.)

Georgianna said...

Hello, dear June! Even when you don't think you have anything interesting to write about, your posts are gorgeous and uplifting and inspiring. Everything you create is infused with grace and beauty. It's such a joy to visit you always. I wish you were down the road and could come advise me on my decorating. lol!

Oh I just melt coming into your space, June. I was showing my husband your world yesterday and the crisp white beauty here.

Thank you for your comment. Yes, I am a bold mama but sometimes it takes even more time to figure things out and wait until the time is right. Now is the time, and I just barreled in on Monday and said Au Revoir.....but with no regrets. Now it is ME VOILÀ TOUT LE MONDE!!! I am in for some disappointments but it is all part of the joy later.

Your photos are exquisite, and the sentiments you share with us truly written from your heart, even with writer's block, you say ! I have been waiting for so long to finally change some things in our home and it is finally happening....I have learned that everything there is a time and purpose under Heaven....we just need to know that the right time is not for us to question!
Hoping to incorporate more white in both home and garden this time around, so this lovely post will be inspirational! N.xo

Debbie said...

I so enjoyed your post, June.
Your house is lovely.

Have a good week.

My Dear Sweet June
Your images speak a thousand words - you may think you have a block but your loving heart and feelings shine through your home.
Thank you for taking us to your special corners and to the treasures on your studio shelf where silver goblets brim with laces and trims that bring cheer whilst you create.
We look forward to the projects that have keep your fingers busy through the Winter months.

Lovely gifts won by you from two very generous bloggers.
Love and big hugs from our Autumnal garden downunder,

so so fresh and clean.....just so gorgeous!

Barbara said...

Leave it to you to have a white cat with pink ears, June! That photo made me smile. Lilies of the Valley were always my favorite spring flower. I know they spread like mad, but I love them anyway. After I moved to Florida, my youngest son brought me some he had dug up, thinking they would grow down here. :)
Your photos always charm me, June, it is such a pleasure to visit your posts!

I love the colours in your new bracelet - congratulations on the prize!
Your dusting and organising puts me to shame. Everything looks so lovely when it's tidied and fluffed but I seem to get home too tired to do much but get dinner on the table. I think I'd best devote some time on Friday morning to the've inspired me!

Reading Tea Leaves said...

Isn't it lovely to have a good spring clean June. Hard work but so worth it when the summer sun begins glinting through super clean windows! I LOVE sparkly clean windows!

Good to hear you have had a settled winter and have been super creative in your studio ... such a pretty piece of cloth in your top photo.

And a beautiful kittie ...!


Lisa said...

Hi June,
I know what you mean about writers block. I've had it for ages, don't know if it will ever go away. Blogging came so easily for me & now I try to post something & it sounds so dumb I just delete it. Now I feel like I've waiting too long, oh well. I never tire of seeing your amazing home, pictures of your studio & Jackson! OMG, he needs an agent. He could be on a TV show, LOL. Hope your enjoying your spring. I'm stuck in bed recovering from surgery, not too fun.

koralee said...

I always leave with a smile on my face after I visit your lovely world. Your home is just amazingly beautiful and so peaceful. Love your bracelet as well...pure joy.
May your Easter week be blessed my friend...and thank you for your sweet comments you left me! xoxoxo

Stan and Jody Gabara said...

What a wonderful studio to create in. I love all your silver goblets lined up with all your wonderful things in them. I would love a studio like this, it's perfect.


Alaina said...

June your home is just beautiful. I too have been busy painting, sewing and working. The weather this winter was amazing, however, it does make for early flowers and early weeds. I am hoping to get a few flower beds weeded while on vacation next week, in between day trips to the local museums, and fun days planned with the kids. I know what you mean about the writers block, I have had some myself. Oh well, Spring is here with it's own todo list. Have a wonderful Easter with your family.

My name is Riet said...

Hi dear June. Thank you so much for your sweet words and prayers. I am very late visiting but here I am admiring all your photo's. You have a beautiful home with such lovely furniture and all that gorgeous stuff lying around on planks and such. I have to go back and look again. Might learn a few things here.
Hugs from Riet and Happy Easter to you and yours

Oh hi my dear, I missed your wonderful posts and I am happy that you've interrupted your writer's block phase :o) and showed us your pretty cleaned corners. I love your house, and I really would be glad to have such a decorative shelf! All the beautiful things that you've decorated on it! But my favorite image is the photo of the pretty white cat sleeping in a pretty white bed. Jackson is soooo cute! Did you know that he has a twin in Germany? Please look here:
Warm hugs and Easter-blessings to you and your family!!!

Sweet Junie...

Oh how I love peeking around your lovely home... it's so darn pretty. Can you come give me a hand? Especially with the yard. It's soooo tiny so not much fits in it.

My dear blog friend. I love when your face pops up on my comments. It's like a call from a good friend and it makes me smile. I never grow tired of this sweet blog community of friends and how it has made this big old world of ours somewhat smaller and connected us to such wonderful people and places. Your home and garden and life are not only a blessing to you but a sweet place to visit that makes one forget the cares of the day in it's beauty.

Hi June,
Just popped in to say hello.
Hope all is well with you and you are digging in the garden, scaring up some gorgeous blooms for us. Can't wait to see what you are up to, I know it's going to be good!

Donna said...

Oh my gosh - your home is SO gorgeous! Will you come tidy my studio? I SO need your help! And Jackson? Well he is just the cat's meow! I would love for he and Baby to have a play date if only we lived closer! Have a wonderful weekend!... Donna

Hello June..How nice it is to visit you again. You are always an inspiration. Reading your post here about not being able to blog "for weeks and weeks.." is just great. I too have not blogged for weeks and weeks...just didn't have it. I was delighted to know I'm not the only one. I was worried that I'd lost some very dear friends.
I have also looked at the post of your grandchildren. They are very the newest name you've added. Kelsey, eh? He even looks like a Kelsey baby. ...^.^) [that's my opinion, but it's true] I have been revived a great deal here. Hope all is well for all of you.

Also picked up the Romantic Homes magazine several weeks back. I think I posted you about that.

Lovely just lovely! You have the perfect amt of white with color along with a sun drenched home. Thanks for sharing! God bless

Half-heard in the Stillness said...

Dear June, just letting you know I'm hanging in there!
My heart is always lightened by a visit to your pages, I love your home! You must work SO hard to keep it clean, although as you say Idaho doesn't get much rain so less muddy paws and boots then I'm thinking?

Sending hugs dear June xx Jane

Lisa said...

Just a quick Sunday hello. I know you're busy, but I've missed a lot and just catching up. Be well.

Hi June, your home and studio are so very beautiful! And that bracelet is absolutely gorgeous! Jackson sure is a handsome fella. He blends right in with his surroundings. Hope all is well! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Hi sweet June!
As always, I love stepping
into your world and
seeing it through
your eyes....I am also
a soul who loves the
rain, and lucky us, we've
finally had some, too,
after a "dry" {read: not
much snow} winter. It
was truly a blessing and
now I'm ready to embrace
the next seasons.

Hugs to you and yours....

xo Suzanne
