Your computer area is so beautiful! Mine is cluttered with school papers, pictures, etc... I'm jealous!

Hi, I love your workspace, I LOVE the chair cover for your office chair, did you create that?
Come check out the vintage barkcloth fabric that I bought to reupholster a vintage sofa, it is lovely fabric.
I am sorry to hear of your loss, your child Nikki. I can't imagine how days must be, even when years go by.
thanks for coming to the party, I am enjoying meeting other ladies through the party.

WOW... What a lovely work space... You are inspiring me to get busy and make a space just for me.....Just beautiful....

Connie said...

I just love your studio! I'd like to exchange links with you if you'd agree, my sweet chickadee!!

Anna T said...

Mary I think that is the most wonderful work-creative place I have seen!
Now I am going to clean my space up! LOL

The Urban Chic said...

Mary, what a beautiful place to create---Can I move in with you? I hope someday to have mine back in order. Right now I'm living out of a suitcase and it's not fun. I have missed all of you. Love and Hugs, Pat

The studio space is great. The photo and tribute to your daughter is beautiful.

Julie said...

I turn 59 in June, Dan is 60 in August. Gack - what the huh happened to us!!!

Sherry said...

I'm revisiting, I love your banners. Maybe I can get with you sometime to get one. They are really nice!!

I just stumbled across your blog and I've really enjoyed it. I love your studio and it has really inspired me to do something a little nicer with my own.

And I wanted to tell you..even I got angry at the anonymous poster who told you to move on and get over the loss of your daughter. That is one of THE most insensitive and hurtful things I have read in a LONG LONG time. We never "get over" the loss of our loved ones....we just hope and pray that we are together with them again some day. Obviously that person has never loved and lost, and we can really feel sorry for that person...for they obviously have a heart that is frozen and untouchable.


Shelley said...

Hi Mary,your studio is beautiful,as is the rest of your home. It's good to know just a bit more about you...
Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend.


Joyce said...

Love your blogging spot....and the pretty print for your chair and "desk apron" that what it's called? I just made that up. HA! Whatever it's called's very pretty with the skirt around it.

Oh your blog banner is SOOO COOL!
I loved it!
See ya!

Cathy said...

Oh I am so green with envy! I love your studio! It's what I would like mine to be when it grows up! I love all the floral prints and the gold framed pictures and that feather weight!!! Something I've wanted for years, yet is has eluded me. Your whole studio is just gorgeous! Thanks for letting us peek.

Cathy :)

Hi Mary, What a beautiful studio you have! I just love all of the framed pictures and the fabric you used to skirt your table & on the chair is gorgeous!

I don't know if you remember, but a long time ago I bought a beautiful vintage print from you on ebay with Pink Roses & Irises. I have that hanging in my workspace!
It is my very favorite! :)

Hope you are feeling better.
Love & Hugs,
Carol Anne

Mary said...

Sweet Mary - although I already know you quite well - I didn't know your studio was so absolutely fantastic! How pretty you've made it - just like the rest of your charming cottage home.

Hope things are going better dear and that you are feeling well.
Sending love as always.
Hugs - Mary.

Jillian said...

Your blog area is sooooo nice! I skipped that part because my part of the shared office (with my dear hubby) is not very girly girl. Maybe one day when we find some time!

Yours is lovely though!



Mary, I am so sorry you have been ill. I hope you are on the road to a full recovery. I love your work area, mine is still a mess. Please don't worry about turning
60, just remember what the alternative is.
Hugs, Coll :-}

ShabbyInTheCity said...

What a room! Beautiful. I'd never get up.
Glad your surgery went well and is over :) I have either MS or many tired.
I remember your wall of silhouettes!

Rosa said...

Hi Mary,
You have a beautiful place to carry out all your fun activities from! Thanks for showing it. And a big thank you for your visit and comment on my blog.
Take care,

Stephanie said...

Hi dear friend! Fun to see where you blog from! Such a pretty area ~ I'm constantly amazed at your beautiful wall displays ~ you must tell me how you do it!! I'm so afraid to hang stuff! Do you lay it all out on the floor first, diagram it, or what?!?

I hope you are feeling better. I pray for you often.

Big Hugs,
Angelic Accents

I LOVE the picture of your studio - it looks glorious. i am curious about your Priority Mail tape dispenser. Might you be able to tell me where to get one? Is it plastic? Does it work well?
