My Art Room in October

Yes, I have a television in this room so that I may watch Lifetime movies as I paint, sew, stuff and do so many other crafty artsy things here in my favorite spot in the world. Sometimes I just listen to music and other times it is totally silent. I do not watch excellent films as I work. They require that I sit and watch. But the lightweight TV entertainment suffices to keep me entertained while I work.

I love my sewing machine. I don't need to use it often, but it is trustily there for me, just to the right of my TV!

This sweet Eastlake desk is certainly a handy aid in the corner to the right of the sewing machine.

These are the windows as one turns the corner from the desk, and there they are right behind me as I sit at my art table.

A view of my art table if you were standing in the doorway into the room.

To the right of the windows is the corner where my ironing board resides. A very well used tool that and the iron.

Had to get a shot of my computer, so you can imagine me sitting in my little antique chair typing or reading here.

Now off across the hall to the spare room, and there are two Hannah's huddled beneath a Victorian parasol as they await their new homes.

Still in the spare room and there are packages of dolls ready to ship to their new homes.

And finally, hiding behind the door to the spare room and sitting atop a small armoire, are my packing paraphernalia, that normally resides in the basement, but 'tis the season, and so I must keep it up here for a while.

Now back to that romantic thriller!


  1. Love your workspace! I too love to watch movies while I work...primarily historical BBC dramas to keep me in the mood!

  2. I enjoyed seeing your room again. I was lucky enough to have a personal tour!

  3. It is always fun to see an Artist's creative space! Your Art Room is great! I love your dolls!

    I usually watch HGTV or Food Network when I paint at home...if I'm not listening to music. I agree...nothing but lightweight TV while painting! :-)

  4. Thank you for the tour of your "favorite" room in your house! Your "special" place is very inviting. I see you have a "Bernina" too. They are a wonderful sewing machine!

    Thanks for sharing! I love your doll too!

  5. Hi Christine~
    First, I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely comment on my blog!! You truly made my day!! I want to return the compliment as well!!
    Now to comment on your work space!!
    You are SO ORGANIZED!! Everything has a place and and it is so neat and tidy!! I can just picture you there, happily being creative!!
    It makes me want that for myself, but sadly, I fear I will need the help of a dozen Merry Maids to make that happen!!
    Thank you for sharing a bit of your "creative world" with us....so inspiring!!

  6. Nice tour. It looks like you've redone the studio. Good job!

  7. Wow, you've really changed the look of your workroom to a much more serene color - rather neutral compared to the deep, rich texture that once "lived" there. I like it! Bet you get lots done there as usual... Along with a little kibbitzing with those who come to lend their support and encouragement...

  8. Yes, Mary, it has been redecorated for a few months now. Haven't you been in here yet? Hello, you live a couple blocks from me. Where are my manners? Oh, I know the problem, I haven't called you in a panic begging your sewing skills. You've been such a good teacher that I haven't needed to call. Just wait until I finally do decide to make my own clothes. You'll never answer your phone or your emails.

    And Donna, you too! I finally got rid of that ghastly, busy wallpaper that was here when we bought the house.

  9. It's fun to peek at your workspace :)That's where all the magic happens!

    Happy creating & Happy Halloween soon!

  10. You have such a wonderful work space. I'd be torn between the TV and gazing out that lovely window. I just love your dolls.

    Take care,

  11. Now did I miss when you were in Where Women Create?

    Look like a magazine article to me
