Where bloggers create-

Now what do you think ????
Here am I in the middle of  all, this is my working space, and
where I love to create-(a customer took this photo)

It is not a beautifull room,but a room full of  inspiration, and all kind of materials,all over,just waiting to be
used, for all kind of creations.

My husbond made me this table ,in two highs, for sitting sewing,-and standing
cutting, or working with collages, or whatever I wants to!

Underneeth shelfs to hold all kind of stuff.

This is the same table, on the other side of the sewingmaschine.

Beautifull old spools of thread-

A little cabinet holding my stamps and inks.

Old silverbowl filled with old kyes

Shelfs full of beautifull things

Wonderfull  olf books

Old and new fabricks

My mother as young woman,

A wall with collections of all kind

Old firebucket with all things rusted

A wiev from my room ,to the shop, --see the figure hanging from the cieling!!
It is one of my very dear friend Matthias Masswig`s  fantastic
mixed media sculptures.

And this is my view to the East-sea from my sewing table.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour, from my very full, and crowded creating space,-as I said,
not beautifull to view, but wonderfull to work in.
Sending you all, love and hugs,
DorthePosted by Picasa

Lisa said...

I have been waiting for too long to see this studio. I have blown up EVERY picture more than once. Of all the studio's I've seen, yours is the one I want to ransack the most! I can't believe all of the shelves piled up to the ceiling with amazing goodies. I see gobs of fabric just waiting for me! LOL I am also loving the fact that you have some sort of animal hanging from a hook. See me post & you'll understand why. I have all sorts of wierd stuff too. I saw the little bag I made for your ballet slippers too. Made me smile. You look right at home sweetie. I hope one day to see it for real. You'll have to check my purse before I leave tho. Lisa

Garden Cats + Crafts said...

Hallo liebe Dorthe,
danke für Deinen lieben Kommentar.
Meine Constance Spry ist in der Tag sehr sehr hoch. Ich habe sie am Zaun entlang gebunden. Gekauft habe ich sie vor ca. 5 Jahren für ganze 2,00 EUR, weil sie nur einen Trieb hatte. Also aus Mitleid. Ich freue mich auch jeden Tag, dass sie jetzt so prachtvoll geworden ist.
Viele liebe Grüße

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥
