Today, as I was planning on writing a new post, I was inspired by someone who
Lori Brechlin, of Notforgotten Farm!
She wrote a wonderful post about where she spends her time being creative....
Her Sewing Room!!!
Her photos are wonderful, filled with SO MANY lovely things to look at!
True textile eye candy! A feast for the eyes and food for the creative soul!!
Thank you, Lori!
She invited her readers to share their own creative spaces
and so I decided I would share mine with you!
Won't you come in??
I just realized I am living in the past!! Love the pictures in this calendar but I think I need to turn the page, don't you??
I collect silhouettes and thought these looked wonderful with this old stitchery sign!
It says, "Well Begun is Half Done" and seems like a perfect saying for a sewing room, yes?
I LOVE little chairs, all kinds, shapes and sizes, and have them everywhere!
I've never met a chair I didn't love!!!
This one holds some stacking boxes filled with fabric scraps for stuffing! One of these days I will paint them or cover them with fabric!!
Here is a very unique cupboard that I use to hold wool! It has two sliding glass doors and sits on an
old piano bench! The old crate under it is a favorite that hold lots of old spools and wooden candlesticks! The top is great for display as well and holds more treasures!
My favorite primitive black cupboard, FILLED with old sewing related treasures!
Pincushions in old sugars and creamers that I made, old photos, thimbles, old books, velvet strawberries, old daguerreotypes, and a sweet putz sheep!!! I often wonder if any of these women loved stitching as much as I do?
Old scissors in a flower frog, velvet strawberry, an old metal shoe pincushion, and old photos!
More old scissors, an orphan high topped shoe with a tomato pincushion tucked in the top, surrounded by more old tomato pincushions! These things make my heart smile!!!
Another old black chair with old school slates and a basket filled with old cookie cutters! Notice the screen on the side of the cupboard filled with wool!!!
Above the chair is a lovely old wall box....perhaps used for candles back in the day, but for now, it holds special treasures.....some Doll House Dolls I made, a lovely pinkeep made by my dear friend
Lori Rippey, an old photo, and an amazing old boot pincushion, filled with pins!!!
Here is a closer view with the whole boot showing!! Tattered, torn, worn, and well loved!!!
Here is a view of the wool cupboard as you face the door!
The top hold more special treasures.....a stack of old document boxes and a large star make do that I made that has Merry Christmas stitched on the other side!
Lovely painted box with old framed photos and some sweet red velvet shoes, rug hooks in a flower frog, and an old tin candlestick!
Finally, a wonderful little box I recently found that I just love but want some opinions of what might have been used for! It has a hole in the top, with two drawers, and I believe it was used for sewing, but can't figure out what the hole is for?
It seems like a pincushion might have originally been on it, but would welcome anyone's opinion!!! Thanks so much!!!
Well, I hope you enjoyed your tour of my Sewing Room, and will be sure to come back to see Part 2!! I had so many pictures, I felt it was better to break it up into several parts!
I will be posting more soon!!
Thanks so much for spending time with me today!!!
Wishing you a day filled with inspiration, creativity, and the things you love, my friends~
