Pretty Clutter


I really try to keep clutter to a minimum in my house,
except in my studio.  There, I live happily among
all the pretty things waiting to be put in my shop...
and some other things that are there just to make me smile.
We had snow today!  
And after having sick boys home all last week,
it was a good day to make extra coffee, 
light a candle, and work in a cozy, warm spot like this!
But... there was the buzz of a wet saw in the
background as bathroom reno number two continues. haha.

  1. I love your pretty clutter, I think its healthy to have at least one space where we can amass our loved objects, I really hate clutter but I have one space in the spare room where I keep very cluttered, in a happy much loved way, , I embrace it there, sorry to hear the boys have been sick but its going round, our family had it as well, Garry and I have managed to miss it, just by luck because our grand kids have truly tried to give it to us with wet kisses and many sneezes! Take care Betsy,

    1. I love that....happy, much loved clutter. haha. :) Glad you've managed to stay well! We have too, except for the boys. A sinus infection got me but not the fever cough thing...so glad!

  2. I think a craft room or studio needs to have a little clutter! You can't create without all that stuff around you. Glad the sickness has left your house, and I hope winter follows it!

  4. I think when we leave clutter around it leaves our minds free for other things to think about....

    1. If corralled in one room
      it can sing a merry tune.
      Wouldn't want it all over the place.
      That would give me a sad face. haha.

  9. Nice to have a sanctuary to hide in. Turn up the music to drown the wet saw. I have found a little clutter helps the creative flow in my quilting room. Hope the bugs are gone for the season and all stay well.

    1. I do agree with that! We can hardly complain about this cold. We were healthy all winter long...no colds, no flu..nothing. Everyone seems on the mend now!

      I like the loud music idea.... haha.

  11. The clutter is the organized things you love. A work place to continue to create and imagine. I am still trying to settle my studio in the downstairs of our newer home. I finally have the two drawing tables in the right positions after many moves. I have my old toys and antique things on the wall and it is my space. It is so good for you to have your get away space.

    1. I do agree...you have to have your own little spot, don't you? Glad you're getting settled but I know it takes time for it to feel right. Would love to see a picture of your studio when you get it feeling right!

    1. I would love to have a potting shed! I saw a beautiful one made of old windows and doors on Pinterest and thought it was so neat! I do have a little potting table on my back porch which serves it's purpose..but an entire shed? That sure would be fun! I think being part Magpie is a good thing...I can relate! :)

  13. Love your picture! I think its wonderful to have what we love around us, its comforting and relaxing at the same time. I'm sorry to hear that your boys were sick.
    Hope everyone is doing well this week!

    1. Well, we aren't over it yet! Spencer came home early with a fever today. They aren't terribly sick but what they have lingers a while! And it would help if they would blow their nose. Oh dear. haha.

  14. I'll take that kind of clutter anytime. What a bunch of lovelies. Sorry to hear the boys were sick. I've been nursemaid to my dearest with a lung infection....but finally he is almost 100% and not looking like the walking dead. It was scary for a while.

    1. Poor Don! He really had it bad, didn't he! I had pneumonia once and it was the sickest I have ever been so I know he was really feeling awful! Good thing you weren't sick and could take care of him. Glad he's feeling better now! I bet you're having lovely weather there while Ohio is trying to decide whether or not to go back to Christmas or jump fully into spring. haha.
