my new *white* playroom...

 I spent most of last week here...

moving into my new space at

getting ready for our  our spring event
~a night in wonderland~

this is more space
What was I thinking?
oh ya, I remember..
I wanted a place to for the *new* look
 that I've been craving so much lately.

I've only just begun.

so many ideas

so little time

shabbifying  guncases 
across America
1 at a time

overflowing  onto the porch
(my original space)

there's still  room for roses

It was so much fun to start with a blank canvas
it is a relief to be finished.
On one hand 
the timing was not  great
but on the other hand
we do have some major medical bills now.
Plus, if  the hoarders are not going to film here next
I do have to move this stuff out.

Enjoy your  White Wednesday!

I LOVE your new playground, especially with the "bed springs & burlap"!! Two of my favorite things! Your pictures, as always, are great and I love sitting here and just staring at each and everyone of them!
Take care, Sue

Hey THIS is fun. I love this look. It's so interesting to look at. I looked at the cabinet and said to myself,"Now this is what I need." And it's a GUN CABINET?! What a clever girl! Great post. Jacqueline

What fun to have your very own playroom. I've wanted to have one of these myself, but all the Malls are to far for me to commit to right now.

Everything looks wonderful and I need to talk my husband into a road trip over your way to see all your wonderfulness in person.

Hope fully everything is going well with you and your family. Enjoy your day.

Wow Rene, what a great space. You decorate your home lovely and then I see this place and I think boy whatever that girl touches is gorgeous. I'd ask you how you do it but I know it is a gift that you somehow possess! Hahaha....a gift that causes the rest of us to drool....hahaha...especially me! Good thing you can't see it...I'd be embarassed. Sigh...everything is wonderful!

I just love all of your pictures, the way they are not so perfect white. I could definately do some damage in your shop for sure. Thank you for sharing.

What a beautifully decorated space. Is it your shop or a room in your house? BTW, thanks for the tip on how to use coffee and linen.

No matter how much space you add, you fill it with beauty. This is no exception. I just sat and stared at each vignette. You've certainly been blessed with a creative mind.

Counting Your Blessings said...

Where is this LOVELY place and HOW do I get there?? When my things overflow onto the porch, it never looks that sweet. But I think you've put a bee in my bonnet to get working on the back porch!

Blessings... Polly
