spring cleaning my studio...

My little studio was a total disaster area.
I put off cleaning it after all my holiday projects.
Then I sort of lost February and most of March with my little setback.
Then the white event had the room looking even worse.
So one afternoon last week had me in that room cleaning, purging and reorganizing.  I sent a lot of new treasures into my booth.
I then did a little fluffing with some new trinkets I picked up at Michaels like this white Eiffel Tower...
I tucked in the loveliest card from the thoughtful gift my friend Sandi sent me and the little thank you notes from Carole that she beautifully attaches to the latest Jeanne d'Arc Living that I purchase from her...


I also picked up these Paris themed storage boxes...

All put together on the little ledge over my desk to add a bit of french inspiration...
Then I hung the sign I made for my space at the white event...
I hung it off an old door knob and escutcheon that my husband put together for me...
A week later my studio is still nice and neat.  I just am looking for the right spot to hang my newest treasures I brought home from the shop...


I have been admiring this old tattered beauty for a long time.
Now she is mine!!

Wandering off to White Wednesday now to see what is new this week!
Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for all your nice comments yesterday!
They truly made me smile!!

Such lovelies in your studio Sandi! Doesn't it feel great to spring clean? I'm still working on it here...
That Eiffel tower is really adorable & unique in white. Hmmmmm...I may have to paint my black one after seeing this.
Love the sign, too, and your lampshade is yummily vintage!
Happy WW Sandi!

Everything sure looks neat and tidy and pretty. Nothing like that going on around here. I never have a problem with slapping something else up on the wall. My husband isn't quite sure how I manage it. Just find a space and there it goes. :) Hope you are having a great day. Tammy
