Last But Not Least

Wow, what a gorgeous weekend!  I cant believe its already Sunday night. It was a busy weekend, but lots of fun.  Its hard to stay indoors and take it easy. So I may have over did it this weekend. I finally got some flowers planted on my front porch area. Now I love walking up to my door.  No garden, no matter how small is complete without a gnome. This little guy has been following me around for years!  I also got around to a little sewing. I am making bunnies and got this one completed.  There are more in various stages of completion.  It was overcast today and it was a little hard to get some good photos.

And last but not least, I am so happy to finally say my studio is done! Well, about as done as can be. I imagine it will always be evolving to some extent. I found this pink table cloth and chair cover at Bed Bath and Beyond. I even had a $5.00 coupon, so it was much easier and cheaper than sewing one. I got the glass display cabinet at a garage sale. I got the dress form and ballerina dress form for Christmas from my girls. Most everything I keep on this table is for display and I really like having different options. There is lots of storage under this 6ft. table.  I finally found some pink taper candles at Pier One, on clearance too, for the "chandelier". Some day I hope to have a big, beautiful real chandelier, but for now this makes me happy. Its officially my studio now that I have a sign to hang. I made this on my last trip to the ceramic painting shop with my Grand daughter:)  I have done my spring cleaning ~ planted my little garden ~ have completed my studio: I am ready to get to some serious creating now!  Now if I just could figure out this 9-6 job thing that is cramping my style. :) I am working on a plan about that, but for now I will get up and start my Monday, thankful I have a job to go to. I hope you all have a pretty week! Happy Creating.
