Where Bloggers Create 2012
Hello and welcome!
^ Today I am linking up with Karen over at My Desert Cottage for Where Bloggers Create 2012. I couldn't participate last year because of a house renovation. We built an extension and part of our old living room has been transformed into a small studio for me. I couldn't be happier!
^ My computer desk where I write my blog posts.
^ I bought this set of 3 old bedroom closets in Holland. They were just the right size, had the right color and have glass in the upper part of the doors (I love that!).
^ The printer tray cabinet was in a miserable state and completely green (!) when I bought it. We brought it to the local carpenter and when it came back I hardly recognised it. It holds all my beads.
^ I have collected several yarns display cabinets over the year and this one is my favorite.
^ If there was a fire in our house, I would run back in again to save these two ladies :-).
^ An old bin and really lovely shoe trees with heels from England.
^ This antique display is perfect to take pictures of my jewelry.
^ Bought at the "brocante" in Arlon/Belgium.
^ These bins with glass cover are old cookie bins.
^ Old bank deposit safes and leather collar boxes.
^ Old French clock numbers.
^ My favorite leather covered hat stand.
^ Numbers, bought in Belgium, probably from an old bingo game. The glass jars were used at my husband's parents' farmhouse.
^ Swarovski glass, these Austrian cut glass crystals are possibly the best in the world.
^ Morrocan lamp and an old oak box.
^ I am of Dutch origin :-).
^ This is my husband's grandfather's pyjama (really!). I wear it for lampworking.
^ I have still some stuff I need to hang on the walls: souvenirs from South Africa, family pictures, embroideries my aunt made 50 years ago and a lot of paintings from my great-grandfather.
^ I bought this display case because I loved the shape. I am not sure what to do with it yet, but I'll find something.
^ My children love to come to the studio and work side-by-side ...
^ ... or do their homework.
Well, that's it...I hope you made it till the last photo!
Now I am going to hop over and see where you create.
Thank you Karen for hosting this fun event every year.
