couple years have been quite an adventure and after ten months of living with
my parents, I’ve finally moved into the cozy cottage my dreams were made of. The first room to receive a much-needed
transformation was my studio/office. I
look forward to enjoying my Mom
Cave by learning more
about blogging as well as re-opening my etsy shops. Many thanks to Kate at Centsational Girl for this

Sometimes I need to be reminded to rejoice.
I bought the turquoise canisters for $.75! They are marked Sugar, Coffee, and Tea but I've turned them around and will make my own labels eventually.
Anyone else with a sewing notion addiction?
The perfect perch for my Where Women Create magazines.
A handy shelf from a recent estate sale.
