this picture is all i could find, but it was basically my sewing table covered in a big ole mess and nothing else. we ended up going to ikea (on a saturday...oh the horror!). sam told me he'll never do that again. we felt like cows being herded amongst plastic furniture and we were surrounded by tons of people, they were testing out beds (gross) and sitting in chairs, and running in to us with their carts. have i painted a lovely picture for you? i would equate the people watching to that of a state fair or a mcdonald's playground or even the airport. to.the.point.
oh quiet serenity. i got the turquoise boxes on sale at joanns.
i separated my felt and fabric scraps and also my notions and stamps. look at the labels! one of my greatest joys in life is a good label. i put all of my buttons and thread and floss in to glass jars. i like using ball jars and vintage jars. i think the trick with using an abundance of ikea is to counteract it with vintage, personal belongings, to create an eclectic look. the last thing i want is for my house to look like an ikea showroom. i'm sure you can agree.
we got the wire that i wrote about here for clips of inspiration and to show off sweet notes. the bottom rod showcases my scissor collection.
we also picked up some clear plastic bins for my fabric. so much easier to stack and sort. those will hide out of sight in our chiffarobe.
