a room of my own

at long last: the studio.  that room of my own.

with a heart all it's own

with lots of bookshelves for art display and books ofcourse
and a mantle

  for an ever-changing inspiration board


and walls to hang up all that i've been working on


 and a beautiful view


and all my thrift store finds that don't quite go with the rest of the house

it's hard to believe it's almost done and that i can finally spend some quality time here with some sense of order after sitting on my bed to sew all these months or fill the dining room table with my sewing machine and fabrics. 
i hadn't wanted to tell you that this room and all the bottom floor flooded with an inch of water two days before x-mas.  so i waited, aired it out, and gave it time to heal.
it seems it has now forgotten, as i have,
how close it came to danger.
and for that 
an ode & a song

Oh, Constanza, your room is gorgeous!!! It is lovely and warm and inviting. I am happy for you that it is complete and you are able to spend happy hours in there.
Have you set a date to go back to Chile?
You are always in my thoughts, sweet Constanza.

PS: The apron reminds me a lot of the scarf that I bought from you. It is around one of the dress forms in my bedroom. LOVE it.

Your room reflects very much the person I know from your blog posts, lovely & inspirational.

What a good idea, the inspiration board.

What a disappointment it must have been to have a wet room over Christmas, but just look at it now!
