work space

It's taken almost a year of me living here to finally get reeeaaaallly close to the finish line of decorating this little humble abode of mine and David's. One of the most challenging rooms for me to finish (who am I kidding? to get started on) was our workroom. David calls it the "Office" because we are not allowed to call it the "Sewing Room". ;)

So I'll just call it our work space.

And I'll show you what it has come to (from being in shambles with tons of boxes scattered everywhere for months).

The details:

{David got me that Singer tin "photo" in England on his business trip.
Photos of my grandparents}

{The Lovely Lady Pilot my friend, Nicole, painted for me. 
A few stuffed animals I made and ornament, my material
and a painting I made a few years ago}

{My Singer and a photo I took of my love}

{Craft and sewing books.
Rubber stamp collections}
Photos of loved ones:
{The collage of old & new}

{My nieces}

{My grandpa holding my mom when she was little.
Elephant statues brought back from Africa by my grandparents.}

{My young grandma.

{Photo booth shots of my grandpa}

{My grandma and her sisters}
My collections:
{Some classics}

{David Sedaris & Chuck Palahniuk}

{Plays & Theatre books}

{Poe, my favorite}

What a feeling of accomplishment to finally be finished with this room! Hope you enjoy the photos!

Courtney said...

Amazing! Seriously! I can imagine how chaotic that room could be..and it just looks amazingly perfect and so put together!

MaieDae said...

Love your work space & your beautiful collection of books! But I agree with you, it's super fun to see where people work bc you really do get a peak into their life/mind. :) Hope you have a wonderful day!

Can I pay you to decorate mine? ;)

Jessi said...

I love your sewing desk! I WISH I had a space like that to store all my sewing and craft things (and a place to sew for that matter :)
And I really like all your decorating.

Diana Smith said...

It looks great! I wish I had a space like that!! Someday! Love the pictures of your relatives, what a great way to remember them!

he calls me wifey said...

Wow! Thank you to all of you lovelies for so much work space love!

Posie: Thanks so much! I love being a wifey, too. It's awesome. Something like that happened to me once. I ended up unfollowing the blog, and then following it again and it worked. Hope that works for you!

Melissa: Why thank you! I'm pretty proud of all my books and plays!

Courtney: You said it! It was SOOO chaotic and such a MESS. It was the bane of my existence for a long time, but I finally bit the bullet and got it spic and span! I'm glad you like it!

Sav: You are so sweet and so right. I love getting ideas for organization and decor because although I love to decorate, organizing is quite a challenge for me. You have a wonderful day too!

Kasey: If you're serious, I'd consider it! HA HA

Jessi: Thank you! That desk was difficult to find and assemble and when we were moving the guys helping us broke one of the legs and it's literally sitting there balancing it while still unattached, so I haven't been able to sew on it since. I just move the Singer on a more stable work surface for the time being, but I'm hoping to find someone who can fix the leg because I just treasure that desk! It is perfect for sewing and supplies.

Diana: I'm glad you like the pictures! I used to have them hanging on the walls of my room when I lived with my mom, but I thought putting them on shelves and desk was a cuter idea. :)

So perfect! So you! I love it! I WANT it! Ha!

Adrian said...

Love your work space! I wish I more space in my house for a something like that. By the way, Dizzy & Jimmy is one of my favorite books of all time. I could read it a thousand times!

he calls me wifey said...

Court: You are awesome <3

Adrian: Weren't you so totally intrigued with the story?? I read it years ago, but every time I see it on my shelf I think, "I should read that again!"

Jenny: I've mostly just sewn stuffed animals and curtains so far. But if I can dig them all up I'll take photos and post them! You're gonna love sewing, it's so fun!
