Ta -da!

In my last post, I said that my new studio was habitable, but not yet showable. Well, now I think I can share a bit of it with you. This is the very old bookcase, which came from husband's grandparents, which I have loved since the first time I saw it seventeen years ago!

Here is my desk, with my favourite pebbles on the windowsill and Charlotte the penguin, and lots of natural light. Believe it or not, if it weren't for the roof of the house opposite, Kate Crane and I could almost wave to each other!

As you will all know, we need somewhere to store all the 'paraphenalia' so I have this bookcase, which has plenty of space for baskets of paint, babywipes, etc, my collection of old books and the journals I am currently working on

and the books which I call on for inspiration..

But my favourite thing is this:

My husband was kitting out a his new office and whilst at the office furniture showroom, saw this and thought of me. Not only can you move the shelves depending on what you want to store, but at the bottom, there is a pull out table. Oo, but I was a happy girl the day he brought this home!
And this is the first creation from my new room. This year, having spent all our money on the building project, we will be spending our summer holiday in the UK, so we will be subject to the vagaries of the British summer - which, at best, could be descibed as unpredictable!

The background is a very patriotic red white and blue, and the figure is a Stampotique stamp.


  1. Thank you for SUCH a lovely comment on my blog - it was good to be reminded just how far I've come, but I think I've found my niche! Love your new room, it must give you great pleasure every time you walk into it. You've also reminded me that I really need to slim down all the stuff I have in here. My childhood home contained a bookcase very like the one you have, and I'd forgotten it until I saw it here.

  2. your new office is absolutely great!!! i love everything about it!! great job! i bet you will be able to create some wonderful things in that new, tidy space.

  3. Ooooh Sarah, your new workspace is great! I liked spying your art inspiration books (we have many of the same books - you have great taste :D!!!!)
    I like the shelvy thing too - neat idea to have a pullout table - very useful. Hope you're keeping well. x

  4. Woohoo, your studio/office looks fantastic and boy do I also love that fantastic book case, you are lucky to have that x


Thank you for taking the time to visit. It's always nice to know that someone has stopped by, and it would be lovely if you left a message!
