Sweet inspiration and just a little bit of stalling ~


A few wonderful images to inspire you today!
Click, save and use...






I have a beautiful idea to share below!
Do you love the feel of a canopy bed?
Simply install two curtain rods you love to your ceiling,
then add a giant swath of GORGEOUS fabric and VOILA!
You are sleeping in luxury....




I'm so in love with Ralph Lauren.
Well, not really HIM but with his classic, timeless style.
This bedding below is a Ralph Lauren pattern, Guinevere.
I have a piece of fabric in the pattern and a ruffled shower curtain too.
Crazy, huh?
That I would settle for fragments of it...
But I always thought that the fabric
would make such beautiful accent pillows in our living room.



I worked in a drapery workroom for a VERY short time
(can you say "sweat shop"?)
and I learned how to create
this gorgeous window treatment.
We called it a butterfly shade....
I'm still so in love with it.



And I've always loved toile. ALWAYS.
It's timeless to me....a classic.
The snippet below is from a dining room but don't you
absolutely LOVE how those curtains are scalloped????
A guest bedroom would so gorgeous
in all blue and white toile,
don't you think?




The stalling part?
Well, I am SO very close to taking photos of the studio!!!
I'm almost there and can't wait to share how it looks now!


Wishing you a wonderful Thursday sweet friends....
Remember to take time to enjoy the little things ~
seems time is passing by so quickly!

much love and hugs,
Dawn

Making progress!







When you have as much stuff as I do,
 it takes awhile to get everything back in order!!!
Plus, I've had other things
to do along the way and have just had to put the studio
on the back burner.

We've had a TON of egg soap orders and
slowly but surely we are finally catching up!

I don't have any studio photos just yet but had to share something with you.
My best bud Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered knew I was working on an art doll.
She told me that she'd been to an estate sale recently and bought a ziplock bag
full of what she thought might just be doll hair!!!

I went to Hobby Lobby to see what they had and it was awful.
Shiny, curly and not at all what I've envisioned on my little baby doll.
Lisa emailed me a photo of what she had and IT. WAS. PERFECT!!!!

That sweetie popped it into an envelope and sent it right over.
Well, it REALLY is so perfect for my little doll!!!
Here's one photo that I took ~
I simply draped one section over the baby's head to show you how it looks.
It's going to be so precious!
But I've got to get this studio re-do finished before I get back to her.
I just hope and pray I can find everything after I finish!!!!
Wish me luck ;)




Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday sweet friends!!!

hugs and love,
Dawn

Can you say "utter chaos?"


Well my friends, that's what's going on around here!!!
The great thing is that I've decided on all of the major furniture placement
but now...I've got to totally weed out what I don't want anymore,
the stuff I can sell in my Etsy
and then I need to figure out where I will store the rest of my goodies.

Please don't laugh...and I'm SO keeping it real here!









This two room studio is going to be HEAVENLY!!!
My sewing space used to be so teeny tiny and now I have room!!!
Our former dining table will serve as a perfect space to cut out patterns and fabrics too.

These photos are pretty junky but I hope to have it all organized to share with you soon!


Happy Monday angels ~
Thank you always for visiting me here,
hugs and love,
Dawn
