Welcome to Anne’s Attic – design. I am at over at My Desert Cottage today. Karen is doing a post on Where Bloggers Create today. So after you see my post click on over to Karen’s blog and check out the many wonder rooms where other bloggers hatch their ideas.
Now, this is the first time in my adult life that I don’t actually have a specified room where I make all of my pretties. But for now this does me just fine. Those of you who have been following me for a while understand that I live in a basement apartment, my Son and his family live above me. Being that I tend their children full-time this arrangement works out perfect for us. Though some day I will have a home and a room to call my own that I can shut the door when I am in the middle of something.
Here is my sweet work bench that gets a lot of abuse! Behind the curtain I have lots of storage. Drawers for supplies, and on each end of the bench are book shelves. Lots of places to put things and out of sight, especially to little hands that love to get into my things. I did a post a while ago on how I made my work bench so if you are interested you can click here to see that.
I love this table top (which is a hollow core door wrapped in vinyl) because it is big and roomy. I wrap boxes in fabric to keep some of my supplies in. An old cowboy boot top of my Dad’s holds scissors and other things that I use. Small zinc buckets are there to keep items handy while working.
This is where I write most of my posts for my blog with my little turquoise lap top. I even have covered the note books that I use in matching fabric.
This beautiful picture of The Madonna and the Christ Child was my Mother’s Day gift. I collect Madonna’s, she is so representative to me of Womanhood. She is a constant reminder and example for me.
I am almost sure that in a few weeks my work bench decor will have changed. Everything in my home just evolves, depending on what projects I have going on.
Not much to my little space where I create but I love it. By the way it is not always this clean, I always have a couple of projects scattered about on it. That’s what it is for, right?
I invite all of you to follow my blog by email! The more the merrier!
