As many of you know, Mr. Cobblestone and I recently
moved from WI to Maine ~ and are loving it!
One of the perks of our new house is my studio room,
which had been a small bedroom tucked up
under the roof of our cape cod style house.
It is not exactly the way I want it just yet, so I won't
be showing you everything here.
When it is done, I'll try to post one of
those fancy-schmancy 360 videos for you.
But over the past weekend, we hung some
new cabinets that Mr. Cobblestone made for me
from shutters that used to hang in the dining
room (ugh!) ~ that Holly Hobby style just
did not suit our taste (see photo at end).
The large window in the room has been flanked by
two of the new cabinets. The shelf under the window
holds many of the furry friends and trinkets I have
received from artists from all over the world that I
have met online. Seeing them each day makes me
smile ~ as do the prototypes of my mice from
all those years ago.
I think I've improved, don't you?
Did you spy my toolbox in the lower corner?
Two smaller cabinets are on this wall, next to the
door we made into the 'closet' under the roof.
It's a great place for storage bins full of fabric.
Here are those cabinets opened to
show some of my teacup collection waiting
for little potbelly mice to reside in them.
Two more cabinets by the door into the room.
There was a built in desk in the room
when we moved in ~ a perfect
spot for my sewing machine.
I added the skirt underneath made from the curtains
that used to hang on the windows in this room
(Scarlet would be so proud!)
and the cork boards to the closet doors.
The closets have shelves with smaller bins
that hold my fabric, wools, ribbons, etc
carefully sorted by color and type.
And here is a pic of the dining room with the shutters.
They as well as the plate rail and tiny blue valence
were one of the first things I took down when we moved in.
Fabric for new drapery is still leaning
in a corner of an upstairs bedroom.
Sigh . . . someday . . .
