carrying on

It's been a slow process, and it's not completely finished just yet. But I don't feel that any room in our entire house is ever completely finished. There is always room for some small item on a shelf or a unique piece to hang up on the wall. But my sewing room is making progress. Little by little.
I ordered this poster and hung it up over the weekend. I first spotted it here and knew instantly I had to have it. I ordered it from here and framed it with a Ribba frame from Ikea. Aaaaahhhh, I feel calmer already.

Glen found me this great blue table second hand too. I can't believe it was only $20. It's in my favorite corner of the room with shelves that my Dad handmade when I was a kid. I repainted them a few years ago, and now they are home to some of my favorite things.

At the end of a long day, I sit in this corner and try to sew or plan new projects. Some nights, when I am too tired to accomplish anything, I just sit there and enjoy my little corner. It's my very own little nook, full of my favorite things.

You got that perfect cute adorable table for 20$. It's such a nice piece of vintage furniture. I also like the poster. I think that it's the most popular poster in the craft blog world! I would like to buy it but I have very little wall space available for posters at the moment :( Maybe for my office at work?
