Funky Lipstick Gypsy Junk Studio
My creative space is an amazing place where I dream, create, and retreat. I love the respite my studio offers me from the world, and the daily pressures of life. I carved out my niche in the daylight basement of our home. It absolutely offers the creative connection my artistic side craves.

I am very fortunate to have such a great area in my home that is exclusively mine, to do what fills my soul and satisfies me creatively.

 
Romantic, tattered, gypsy soul!

  Inspired space!

An artist's vision

A slice of the Junk Jewels that I create in the Fab Gypsy Studio.

I exclusively create my "Cuff Love" Junk Jewel Cuffs included in this collection are also my "Chunk Chains" which are similar using vintage silverware as the focal piece.

More..."Cuff Love"

Another Gypsy original..."Shabby Gypsy Slips". I hand dye and embellish each one with my "Gypsy Flora", and create a one-of-a-kind fun Gypsy staple!

My namesake girl...

Reflections...

Casual cozy comfort!

It's all about the details...lots of 'em!
I have always been detail oriented and notice the smallest of things, always.

My right hand little man deep in slumber...on billowy tufts of down and vintage linen.
Bye 'fur' now but not 'fur'ever!

Many, Many Gypsy loves and Kisses

What an awe.some space. You have a lovely design sense and I just love your work...and your dog, so cute. You are a lucky woman.

Romeo said...

What a beautiful creative space!!!! A friend (Rowann of Antiques in Old Town) told me this was a favorite of hers and was beautiful - she was sooooo right! Love your style and attention to the details!!!! I also love the offbeat way you've arranged your furniture! These are the kind of things that make this cat very happy - one can never have too many places to adventure into and out of, as well as sights to see and admire! Oh yes, I should also mention that you are my kind of gypsy - allowing your "right hand man" a comfy place to nap!!!

Thanks so much for the tour - LOVED it!!!

Purrs!

Romeo and "her"

I am still getting down the creative spaces list! Your space is lovely...and a chandelier! Oh, my! I have heard people refer to day basements before, what is that? I live in Orlando, so no basements here, something about the water table ha! When I lived in Minnesota we had basements and half basements, where the basement was 1/2 in the ground, but I don't know what a day basement is?

Really like your blog banner with the mix of the black & white photos using pink elements.

Lots of yummy goodies in your studio! Love the pendants/charms out of the spoons - very cool!

Looks like you have lots to inspire you and keep your creative juices flowing. :D
