When we decided to move I was soooooo excited because there was enough space that I could have a sewing room all for myself! My last creative space was great but I shared some of it with my son's toys - believe me when I tell you that Lincoln Logs hurt just as much as Legos when you step on them!

Now that his new bedroom is big enough for all of his stuff, my new room is all for me, me, me, me, me! I found my new desk on Craigslist and it's a lot bigger than my old one, and finally I'm putting my Eames shell chair to good use, I swear it's the most comfortable desk chair ever! My desk looks out onto a large wraparound deck and the beautiful trees and hills beyond.

Most of the furniture from my old space has fit perfectly into the new one. We loved our last house but I find it funny that I never actually put any pictures on the wall. I must have "known" that we would probably not be there for long. But look, one of the first things that I did here was put up some little paintings by a local artist.

This hutch barely squeezed into my new room! There were literally just inches to spare in getting it around the corner! This is one of my favourite pieces of furniture and I would have been heartbroken if it hadn't fit. But it did, and doesn;t it look great?! :)

One of my other hutches is now being used in our kitchen so this one is now filled to overflowing! It's straining at the seams but I can probably find room to fit a few new tchotckies.


  1. I can't believe you found that desk on craigslist. That is the same desk I am planning on buying from Ikea for my new sewing area. What a great find. I hope you got a good deal on it!

  2. Gosh I'm so jealous! Your sewing room looks amazing!! I hope you get many many wonderful days crafting in this special room. I have a "sewing corner!". LOL


I love comments - that way I know I'm not all alone!
