Where Bloggers Create

 Welcome to my Sleeping Porch Studio!
Many of you know that during the Winter months, I work in our cozy attic studio.  Our homeschool classroom is up there so it's easier to work upstairs.  But during the warmer months, I work in the downstairs sleeping porch.  My cutting table was the counter at a local shop.  I love the old door on top.  I can't share too much of the studio because this is one of the rooms that was included in Fifi's shoot but here's a little peek...

I have a few vintage dressforms but this one is my favorite.  I love to have lace draped over her.

 My sewing nook is truly just a nook in this large room.  I have to hide the TV behind a curtain above the sewing machine.  Sometimes the kids want to watch a movie in here but I sure don't want to see the big, black, flat screen 24/7.

This is the craft area. The kids tend to work here more than I do but believe me, I can get that table piled up with projects super quick!  Right now it's a nice spot for tagging items for our open-air sales.

 Our petticoat light was not intended as a permanent fixture.  I got the super cool, rusty old frame at Na-Da last Fall and I really like it without anything on it.  But when Fifi called and asked if she could come a week early, this was my quick fix. (Yes, I nearly paniced when I got the call that she was coming "tomorrow" but  there was a scheduling conflict and in the end it all worked out fine).

This room has 11 windows so it has amazing light!  Unfortunately, it also presented a very expensive curtain issue.  Paper garlands dress up the plain muslin!

Thank you for sharing a  peek into our Sleeping Porch Studio. 


I'm delighted to be part of Where Blogger's Create with My Desert Cottage today.  Please be sure to visit some of the other blogger's studios.

    I love your petticoat light and am looking forward to more in the future.. I am a follower now. Who is Fifi and why is everybody so anxious about her visits? Just wondering!
