MUCH NEEDED MAKEOVER IN THE STUDIO/OFFICE AREA

I am happy!
Few coats of paint and stain and the Office/Studio area looks so much better.

Thank you to my boys I finally brought the vintage refrigerator up at the house. It is storing the printer, papers and smalls.

The stool/chair. 
It's on wheels so I can easily move it in the other side of the studio. 

I used thumb tucks to add the red and white check fabric to the window cabinet.

All my favorite things are right close to me.
I purchased these books at the thrift store. 

One of my purchases at the December Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks was this heart from "DragonFly Dreams Clothing".

....and this cookie cutter heart I purchased from Vintage Beach House, at the Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks also.
LOVE LOVE LOVE


Few of my favorite solder pieces that I created over the years


I love pincushions....




Time to get back to work, wishing you all a wonderful MONDAY!

Ciao Rita
