Friday Pretties

A week ago my daughter moved out.
And I moved in.

This is my new guest/sewing room.
Previously Allie's room.

I miss Allie very much, but let me tell you I am loving my new little spot to call my own.

It is a quiet spot in my house where I can go sew or relax.

I found this cute table at a garage sale and i use it as a cutting table for my sewing.

I now also have some space to store my fabric.

And books.

The only other person in my family that will love it as much as I do is my sister Joyce.
This will be her spot when she comes to stay with me.
And she will no longer have to share a bathroom with the boys.
I am sure she will be very grateful for that:)

Happy Friday!

Good morning! I just had to drop you a note and tell you what a lovely blog you have. Just the simple touches are lovely and I loved the whites of course!!

Each Friday I have a meme -- "friday finding beauty" and I thought you would be a perfect participant.

Stop by if you get a moment -- would love to have your presence and inspiration.

Kind regards

I think your sewing/guest room is lovely. And your cutting table is a true thrift treasure.
I love your attitude too. It is sad for us (good for them) when our precious children move out... but you really have the correct attitude. You found that silver lining, didn't you!
So nice to meet you!

Love the soft, shabby-chic feel you created for your new little "room of your own".
That fence shelf is so sweet!

I love your space. It is so full of whimsy. Makes me want to add more to mine.

That would be fun taking over a room :) Yours looks so nice. Whatcha sewing?

Rosie said...

What a perfect space for a little girly giggle...and oh to have a cutting table. When I was first married, I used the kitchen table. Every time the door would open...WHOOOSH....pattern pieces would take flight.

My son is off working in another part of B.C. and I was really needing a bit more space... soooooo...made a little phone call to "break the news", then....padded and tarped his pool table...oh my word...the BEST PAINTING TABLE EVER...;D

...may you have MANY a relaxing hour in this cozy little room.
