Since I just did a huge studio post after my latest studio cleaning and rearranging in May (click here to view: http://carolsgarden.blogspot.com/2011/05/celebrating-the100th-white-wednesday.html)
I concentrated on the parts of my studio which I rather left our last time. I could have just linked up the May post today, but I thought after almost 8 weeks new pictures would be more fun.
My vintage studio dressform dressed up especially for today:
and I think I did not show you a close up of my vintage writing collection either so far:
I love to leave the huge roof top windows open in summer and let a breath of fresh air into the studio:
Under the window you'll find some of my studio storage which i love to rearrange from time to time:
In this case I decorated the wooden storage boxes with the glass lids with some of the altered and soldered bottles I created this year and the glass box I soldered last year:
on the round white table in front of this shelf stands one of my studio bowls ~ a vintage soup toureen ~ filled with supplies to create with:
Talking about creating I thought you might not only want to see the cleaned up studio but also a bit of the mess I make while pulling things together to create:
If you're new to my blog you might not know what I like best to create so I'll show you some silver soldered trinket boxes I finished lately:
The one above is quite huge and hangs on my old dressform. The ones below are smaller, more like pendants to wear:
It's fun to fill them with vintage frozen Charlotte dolls, vintage rhinestones and other small trinkets:
This one is a see through box made entirely out of cut glass which looks good from both sides:
In the next one I used a tiny crotched flower created by my talented flickr friend Sandra Blanks:
The one above got some vintage bling and silver wire boullion on old German sheet music paper with the German word Traum which means Dream and the box below I called "Oh Tannenbaum" the scene shows a child which peeked through the keyhole the night before Christmas and seeing the already trimmed Christmas tree it just had to sneak into the festive room:
I also cut my first bird shape, soldered it and gave it some lace wings:
This is my solder desk where the "Magic" happens:
Well dear visitors and party people I hope you had some fun visiting my studio and found some inspiration here then I'll be all happy today! And my wish for you - I wrote on the chalk board in the picture below:
Now let's go and visit all the other fabulous creative bloggers and the spaces where they create!
There is a long list from A to Z of WBC party participants on Karen's blog in the the right side bar.
Happy partying everyone!
