that special something...

You know when you see something...


That special something that has beautiful chippy details and lots of perfect imperfections...




And you finally realize it belongs with you and you bring it home...


And then it inspires you to want to do a whole room over?
That is just what happened to me.
Oh, and peeking at everyone's beautiful, creative spaces that are being shared for Where Women Create 2012.

Maybe next year I will have my own space ready to share.
Maybe.


I am sharing with Kathleen at Faded Charm for
and with Debra at Common Ground for

I am also going to try and post this on my new Facebook page.
Wish me luck!

Thanks for visiting!

Just so lovely, Sandi! It would look fabulous in your new studio! I am working on mine now. It probably won't be move in ready until the middle of August.

I have an old family portrait the is in a similar style as yours. It is painted gold, but is chippy and wonderful. I will probably paint it white, and distress it some myself.

Thanks for sharing!
