Snowcheck

I've had to take a "snowcheck" on two outings this week because of the crazy storms we've been experiencing. Which in fact is fine for a homebody like me.

I always enjoy seeing other people's creative spaces, and thought that perhaps you would like to see little bits of mine.

Newly cleaned desk. My sewing machine is under the blue and white linen.

I love seeing my tools all organized and ready to be used.

around the house_270
A little collection of sea stones. I think they would like some pretty finery. I need to learn how to crochet.

around the house_274
My new el-cheapo-but-functional ikea book case to hold my growing stash of Gris Handknits yarn.

The artwork in the foreground was a christmas gift from my ultra-talented and dear cousin.

The dear little ceramic owl belonged to my paternal grand-mother Kitty. In her younger days, Kitty was the life of the party, and an incredible hostess. She collected owls, and I chose this one as a keepsake after she passed away.

I purchased this Edwardian blouse for a song at a vintage clothing show I had the pleasure of going to with Margie this fall.

I love wool blankets. The beautiful striped one was actually woven by my maternal grand-mother. It is incredibly precious to me.


Have a cozy weekend!

thank you so much for sharing your space with us!

i love the large drawing in the photo at the top - is it one of yours?

and also the box with the bird on it.

i love wool blankets too and have a collection of them. the last time my mother was up to visit she asked for an extra blanket and i said oh i have lots of them and she said - i should have known. but really - a good old wool blanket pulls it's own weight.

hope you're having a cozy weekend.

your workspace is beautiful and so well organized! I share my space with my two little creative sons, so it is alwyas full of little pieces of paper, beads, crayons and such(which is fine at the moment.) Your last winter post was also beautiful!

What a wonderful space! I love how that dramatic charcoal drawing on the wall contrast with the quiet orderliness of the rest of your room.

salut. – 
i've looked into, yes maybe it was in fact as much looking than reading, your blog a couple of times in the past months. have been drawn to it by your photographs of nature details and structures which remined me a lot about pictures i myself used to take when i discovered my parent's (not yet digital) slr... inspired me to go out again some more and just look and flow and flow and look.

anyway, i like the picture of needles put together with pencils – it's all wood, it all can be used to draw, to let thoughts wander.. (be the elements words/letters or stitches..)

Your space is so calm and beautiful, inspiring and so very you.

I'm not at all surprised to see the natural elegance of your interior design sensibility! :) I have lots of natural light in my space and some nice wood, but I could do more with the space in terms of the small touches in organizing my work (drawing, sewing, knitting, etc.) materials! I am inspired!
