Ahhhhhh.... My Art Studio.
(I love you Art Studio!!)
A couple weeks ago my husband was so kind as to let me commandeer the "office" and turn it into my Art Studio.
I have been desperately in need of somewhere to create Art. I had bits and pieces scattered all over the house.. at it was a bit unbearable for the family when I was actually working on anything.
There would be small piles of "do not touch me" everywhere... like puddles after a rainy day.
My studio is an eclectic mess of everything. It's not near finished, and I expect it never will be. I have grand ideas for this space... and even grander ideas about what will come out of this room.
This bird cage is my favorite find. What I love best about it is the door.
The door to my birdcage is suppose to be open to symbolize freedom from all of the things that keep us from being able... capable.. of being our best. The door to my birdcage has strong springs, and it snaps shut when you try and open it.
This room makes me want to create. Even in it's partially decorated, unfinished state, I am in love.
It's a bit of a fit for all my art supplies and sewing supplies, but I'll make SURE it works.
BTW... at Brave Girls October, I completely forgot to bring my apron.. So I made this new one.
I love it... Mostly I love the dress underneath..
This bust form was my grandmothers. I suppose she didn't want the poor girl hanging around naked so this dress has always been on the bust form.. for as long as I can remember. I'm fairly certain it was made in 1960, and if the fabric was not faded from time I would absolutely take it off the bust form and wear it. It's a fabulous wrap dress.. Oh Love.
One of my favorite bits about this new art studio of mine are the art projects my sweet, sweet Jennica Girl keeps making and leaving behind for me.
