I bought this scarf thing at Goodwill for a quarter.
The picture above my shelves is a copy of the original
that Brent drew when he was 5 years old.
My table is filled with both the things I need to sew and the things I need to smile.
I LOVE the idea of the frog prince... and have lots of them in here.
This room also has to double as a guest room.
If you remember my garage sale adventure..
This is the headboard I bought last year for $1.75.
Now that was a deal...
I painted some quickey stripes on the wall.
and my favorite picture of my "big kids" a fun shade of pink.
It made that fancy gold frame so much more fun !!!
Brad and I bought this cabinet several years ago with a tv in it for $40.
A fast coat of white paint and some dots later... I have storage with energy !
I adore flying pigs..
They remind me that dreams are possible!!!
I made this lamp years ago and remembered it in the attic.
It is covered with dollar general cheap flowers... but it makes me smile.
I have now have the most functional desk in the world.
I just have 1 more drawer to paint.
The top I found on the side of the road.
I remember getting out of the car to stand by it because I thought someone else would get it before Brad got there to put it in his truck.
I filled it with everything I need, and a few things I like to look at.
I painted the entire desk with BLACK paint
so it would sorta look like it all went together.
Then I bumped my painted dresser up behind it
so it would give me extra counter space.
One of my other all time best smile getters is this elephant.
I bought it for Brady when he was a baby.
He never really liked it, but for some reason I always did.
I put Brook's old tutu on her and man I can't get the grin off of my face.
The last wall of my office is eventually going to be filled with
all of my kids old art and some of mine as well.
Things that I always loved, but didn't have a place for.
I somehow thought that my old studio was supposed to look grown up.
But... Now I've decided that in this one I am filling it with things
that I LOVE and things that give me energy to WORK and create.
May we realize that sometimes smaller can be WAY better!
