My Desk...

So its taken me a while to finally get around to posting this, but here we go.....

My gorgeous new desk arrived a couple of weeks ago and im very, very happy with it.

A second hand dining table, beautifully painted up and distressed by the lovely Emma from Love House to make a great little work space for me.

I also purchased this gorgeous chair (also by Emma) which I love.....

I have spent the last few weeks sorting through all my crafty bits and pieces, tidying up ribbons and re-homing buttons and beads, and getting organised (not sure how long its gonna last!).

From Kilner Jar button storage...... a place for my favourite pin-cushion.

A great purchase from an antique oak cutlery sorter re-used for all my threads.

Beautiful mini boxes from Canada, once containing chocolates, now holding quilling tools and brooch backs.

A very handy little tray with cute heart handles, ideal for searching for that perfect button. I found this in a lovely little shop in Chipping Sodbury, near Bristol, called Shabby Chic Interiors.

And finally this fabulously bright and funky fabric storage container. I purchased this from a lovely lady called Pam who has a Folksy shop called Hortensia Designs. She makes some really beautiful pieces so please take a look.

So, all is sorted, tidy, and its place.

I just need to find the time to sit down and make something!

Folksy finds......Get Organised!

Ok, so this week I purchased myself a new work desk. Well actually its my first proper work desk.......up until now I have made use of the dining table.

I say 'proper' desk, but i've actually brought a second hand table which is currently in the process of being 'shabby chic-ed' ready to go with my gorgeous new to follow.

So I have found myself snapping up some bits and pieces to help me keep organised and (hopefully!) tidy........
