Welcome to my studio!

My studio - officially called the "shed" - but it's my personal rabbit hole. The place is small but that means I don't have to go far to find things and in the winter it heats up quickly!

Some helpers...

Who said cats are clean? Titania says "Got dirt?"

Oberon is king of the wood pile - and everything else.

Come on in...

Lots of boxes to hold stuff, a vintage green shelf

More shelves and lots of boxes

Mariba, the half mannequin, hangs out on the kiln. She put on some finery for her picture.

This is where the magic happens...

Keeping stuff tidy...

Necklace details

Earrings and pendants

Other goodies...


A fun scissors case

Evermore, the raven, likes the top shelf

More pincushions and needle cases

A tail-wag from Brownie...

Thank you for visiting!

Arizona Desert

This is what where I live looks like - stark but beautiful. This picture was take from Perkinsville Road which is actually a dirt track through the hills behind Jerome. The silence is amazing, only birds and wind; you can see for miles and miles.

Studio Tours

New to blogging! Can you tell? I still haven't figured out half of it - I wonder if there's a "Dummies" book for this. On July 24th the blog My Desert Cottage is hosting an event "Where Bloggers Create", here is a link to the page:

Will it work? We shall see.
