Spiffy



Hello, There! There has been a lot going on at my house as of late. I read a post over at Andi Butler's blog and it put a little idea in the back of my mind. A short while later, I got a catalog in the mail and saw this lovely green cabinet. It snowballed a little from there into a couple new pieces of furniture and much-needed new carpeting for our four-season porch (my "studio" is tucked away in a corner). Here are some pics for you:
The green cabinet replaced an old sideboard that I had been using to store supplies. Much more storage space. Didn't take any photos of *inside* the cabinet because I still have some organizing to do... Things are almost back to normal around here.The cabinet is almost the exact same shade of green as the wall color. Cool, huh?Here is my new little bookshelf! I parked it right behind a chair and it actually helps frame my space. Just finished reading Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer Holm, it was spunky and charming. I loved it.The new carpet is Gordy and Gus Gus approved! They are becoming better friends every day. This is just about the cutest picture ever! I am excited to create more art in our spiffy "new" porch! Getting ready for a new postcard mailer... Thanks for reading! Happy Monday!

Good job on the cabinet, and the spiffiness! It's such a nice space. And that green color is so calm and "naturey".

Ooh, I love your new cabinet and your studio space. It looks like a great place to be creative. Sorry I haven't been to your blog recently; I've got to find more time to read blogs again.

p.s. I looked at the last pic and thought, "ooh, cute kitty and puppy!" My hubby looked at the pic and said, "poor kitty!!" (as in, the kitty should get the basket and the dog should be on the floor. ;)

Wow, that IS a nice cabinet! Even better than how you described it over the phone. Love the color.

Oh, and your book shelf? I'm jealous!

What a charming and inviting place to work. I would never want to leave. Green is such a soothing color and I love the hue you selected. I have to say the last photo has had me laughing all lunch...poor kitty.

Thank you all! The cat and dog have now become best friends and the cat just loves to sleep on the new carpet next to the dog's bed. They have recently been seen sleeping in each other's beds! hahaha
