Where Women Create Blog Party

Welcome everyone!
We'd like to invite you into our
vintage inspired oasis!

There is something very personal about
the space we call our craft rooms.

It is easy to see that Lindsey and I Love
vintage!  We used a lot of
vintage pieces to function in our
craft space.

Lindsey is a scrapbook artist.
She also makes journals and tags
and altered items to sell in our etsy shop.
The papercraft supplies is the majority
of the room.

These little old windows are pink and called
our name when we discovered them in an
antique store.  So did the vintage chalk board!

Our craft room represents many trips
home from antique, craft and
thrift stores.

I, (Twyla), have started painting again.
I am sharing a messy scene of what my desk
looks like after I've painted a picture.

It is so hard to resist these little bottles of paint!

We love having our craft room to display some
of our favorite collections.  On these shelves
are Lindsey's collection of Irmi's.

The two paint colors we chose because we
couldn't decide between our two favorite
colors.  It worked out well in this room.
Pink walls surrounds my yarn storage area.

We hope you've enjoyed visiting our craft room.
It's been a pleasure sharing it with you.

Thank you to Karen for hosting this wonderful
party.  It is so much fun to peek into
everyone's space.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Twyla and Lindsey
