Where Bloggers Create 2011

Where Bloggers Create 2011...Gypsy Studio Tour

Greetings, to all of you beautiful fellow bloggers and faithful followers! It is time once again for the 3rd annual Where Bloggers Create 2011 party....I am honored to be a part of this fantastic gathering for my 2nd year, and to be among like minded creatives showcasing their amazing spaces...all thanks to Karen of My Desert Cottage ! Big thanks Karen, for not only hosting, but for all the work that goes in behind the scenes! Hats off to you!

WELCOME to my Gypsy Haven! Please browse, lounge, make yourself comfortable, look around, and be inspired!
The doors are open...come on in!!!


My creative space has really changed from last year as I have acquired MANY more supplies for creating and collected MANY more beloved treasures to add to my nest! In true Bower bird form!!


I LOVE everything about my studio!!! It really serves me not only for creating and designing, but as a quiet refuge away from all the daily demands of life!


Leopard lounge offers a cushy place to read, dream, and nap! Also contemplate new designs for Handmade Gypsy.



I am simply a mad Gypsy when it comes to arranging supplies and vignettes. I consider my collections to be like Gypsies themselves...always on the move! ;)





I live by the motto...

"Too much of a good thing can be wonderful"

In my world one is NEVER enough!


Many of you have met "Gypsy" at roadshows we have been a part of...and know she is my "SHOW PONY"! She's sporting a 20s flapper look as of late! Hard to tell what era she'll choose next?


Rustic romantic style suits my strong love for rustic elements mixed with refined pieces...a crystal chandy hanging against barn wood!!!



I have a deep love and attraction to natural elements....all things nature! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...rocks, branches, moss, shells, antlers, horns, bark, feathers...the list is endless, mother nature is grand!!!




I am extremely inspired by nature and have always been outdoorsy and love spending time in the mountains or at the beach. Having pieces of nature surrounding me in my creative space offers comfort and inspiration, of time spent in the wild.




My group of girls help me showcase and display my jewelry/rosettes/shabby slips and layers of other Gypsy finery!




I have always had an intense passion for books and magazines! I am a voracious reader and bibliophile! I am curious and love to know what is going on in others lives and the world!!!


A studio must, a true GYPSY Queen Bee reading chair that is bathed in natural light.


Old religious relics are ANOTHER fave collection and source of spiritual inspiration!




THIS is where all the REAL work and magic take place!!! I can't tell you how many "woman" hours I have spent at this spot in the studio!!!
Hours, days, weeks, spent filling orders, creating designs, building Junk Jewels, and all the business that is Lipstick Gypsy!



ephemera and lace dripping out of the supply drawers...a Gypsy studio staple!


Thank you so much for visiting and touring my sacred space. I sincerely hope you enjoyed yourself as much as I enjoyed having you!!! Now, as you can see my beloved boys and I are "dog" tired and we have to say so long for now! Until next time...

Gigantic Gypsy Love!
xoxo

Creative Grammie said...

Your vintage cabinet in the first photo is so adorable. With that alone I fell in love with your studio. With the two lounge chairs, my guess is you have a fairly large studio, you lucky girl. You have wonderful baubles and treasures, thanks for letting us see them and thanks for the tour of your beautiful work space hideaway.
