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...

Pincushions


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!

Oh, My Dear One -- I am absolutely in love with your space, both online and off! Anyone who begins a blog with 'Not all who wander are lost' MUST be a kindred spirit. Have you had the pleasure of listening to The Lord of the Rings Ensemble with Christopher Lee? It is my favorite CD, and your blog has inspired me to listen to it right this very moment! What a beautifully creative space you live in! It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance at this lovely event; please do stop by for a visit soon!

Enjoy the party!

Warm Wishes,

Natasha
