At the last minute, I decided to jump into Martha's Studio Confidante Project over at Naive Knitting. I love what I've already seen here and here, and here--can't wait to see it all put together. Fun!
While there's no "studio" per se in my home (ah, but I dream about the next house....), this is a little corner of my sunporch that I've taken over to keep fabric, yarn, and goodies. I wouldn't dare show you a picture of the whole frightening mess, but here's a little nook on top of a crate of fabric. From left to right is a "bouquet" of flowers that Calvin made for me one morning when I was sick; a woodblock painting I did a while ago; my recently added beautiful modbird from Lisa; and Willy the Wizard/Witch (hey--don't make fun, I only get to name the babies around here). I made this papier mache hand puppet last year for Calvin and then promptly took it back because I love it so. I guess you could say she makes the magic happen, and sometimes, she puts a nasty spell on my projects too. You just never can tell what she's going to do.
Oh, and the pictures at the foot of the wizard! From left to right, a funny doggie pic that I found in with a box of needlepoint supplies at an estate sale. I would guess it's from the 50's---I suppose it was this woman's "studio confidante", and I can't seem to part with it! Second, is a photo from the 20's that I love, of a young woman holding up what I presume to be a bottle of alcohol--having a grand time (I have a thing for old pictures--not so surprising, is it?); and last, is my sweet adorable husband when he was 5 or so. I love this picture!
Okay, let's see yours! There's still time...head on over to Naive Knitting today to submit your confidante!
