You can never have too many....



When we moved into our home here in Florida,

I brought my desk that has a lower desk for my sewing machine.


My sweet hubby hung my Catherine Holman Folk Art

prints above each desk! (and the first cross stitch I ever made)


I love being surrounded by artists that inspire me!

Here's my 'Lavender Cottage' by Catherine Holman!


And he put up some narrow shelves to display pretties on!

So what do I need now?


More shelves!


I love having the space to sew and do craft projects!


I can't wait to get my new shelves loaded with pretty things!


Have a wonderful week!


when I looked at this post, I thought,

this is not 'boring to better'! EMPTY SHELVES? heehee!

But I need to decide what to put on them! Art? Craft projects?

Thrift finds? what nots and doo dads?

So that will have to wait for another post!

So here is something that I think is 'better than boring' !


I found this sweet little tea cup at the thrift store....


isn't it precious?! The design goes into the inside of the cup!

There's even a sweet little violet on the bottom!


Have you ever seen one like it?

 I'm linking with Kim at Savvy Southern Style 

for the 'Boring to Better' party!


And there's still TIME!

I love the shelves! I have something similar in my den! And I just love the stuff on your shelves :) Very pretty prints as well! Great room!

Nice craft room, Diane. Pretty cup. Never seen one like it before. Thanks for joining the party.

Tina said...

I love your prints. And you've done a great job on your cross-stitch!
The shelves look great...can't wait to see what you display on them!

Vee said...

What a great space for creating. I like lots of shelves, too. Lots.

Hi! So lovely to find your beautiful blog. I love your cross stitch. I haven't stitched for a while since our beautiful bubbies entered our lives, but I certainly used to. My brother called it my 'stress stitch'! Hugs to you. Emma.

What a sweet teacup! My grandmother's name was Violet. I can't have enough shelves. Isn't it nice having your sewing machine where you can just whisk something along and get it done? I see that I'm going to like that very much.

I love your sweet teacup and that you surround yourself with things that inspire you while you sew and do crafts!

I'd put my sewing and craft stuff on those shelves. Easier to remember what you have and use it when you can see it. However, I also love having pretty things around me.

Thanks so much for following my blog. I just followed yours as well.

milka said...

Wow, your little space is full of 'toys'! I can imagine you must be a happy one when working at that corner. I like your 4 frames in the 3rd pic.

Wendy said...

You are so lucky to have a place set up to sew! I drag my machine to the kitchen table! Love how you have added special touches and the shelves!

Christine said...

I love the shelves. I used to do this at my computer desk area, yours are waaay prettier.

Becca said...

Love seeing your space, can't wait to see what pretties you put on your shelves!

I need more shelves...I am lacking space savers like that, so you have inspired me! The what I wore Wednesday party is coming up today, just sayin, you may want to show off your smokin body!!:) XXX000
I am adding your blog to my side roll, I already follow but I want your posts to pop up on blog so I can see them.

I love shelves filled with pretty things, and you are right, you can never have enough of them. Your creating room looks wonderful!

I do love shelves and I could use even more than I have!
The picture of the Lavendar home is just beautiful.
No..I have not seen any cup like that..and the little Pansie or rather Johnny Jump Up..is just so sweet!
What a neat find!
