Up until recently I have had the unusual pleasure of both a Winter and a Summer studio. In the Winter months I used to retreat to the former servant's quarters (see it here). But since my son has moved back home and is using the attic area as a studio apartment, I get to work solely from the downstairs sleeping porch.
It's such a delightfully light space. With 11 windows and it's own entrance, it's a perfect office/studio.
Everything in this space is 100% useful but probably the most useful is this great old cabinet. It used to be part of a florist's display. As you can see, I pack it full of supplies that are constantly rotating.
Yes, I'm using a barn vent as a filing cabinet. Told you, it's all useful.
I love my farm tables! My youngest son is dyslexic so when we do school work I need to sit with him and pay close attention to his work. We bumped two farm tabled up next to each other so Davis and I can both work at the same time.
Mr. Blessing just fashioned this cutting table for me from a kitchen island. It's on wheels so I can move it around but what I appreciate most is that it's just the right height.
The counter was from a local store but lately it's usually covered with glitter and ribbons and bits of lace. When we have sales here at the house, it's our checkout area. And yes, that is a baking tray as a magnetic board.
I've always got a couple of vintage dressforms around in varying sizes so that when I need to sew or photograph a specific item, I have the size I need. I know, there are new adjustable forms but I love the old tattered ones better.
Although I'm working from one studio these days, Mr. Blessing and I have a different creative space every weekend during market season. You can check out Scenes from our Open Air Markets here.
Have some fun this weekend visiting all the sweet creative spaces...
