Everything you never wanted to know about my studio!

Look at my desk. Do I look busy or what?

Here is my official "objects of beauty" area. Unfortunately it's plum full. Where will I put my next wooden bowl or plastic palm frond? Dilemma...


My husband bought this Boruca Indian mask in Costa Rica this year. The artist who made it is named Jose Gonzalez L. L is for LOVE this mask!




I bought this little wooden Coati this year too. They look similar to Raccoons.





I've never named my pet Flamingos.




My friend Amy Vasterling gave me this pencil sharpener. Naughty!






There's my 2nd self portrait,"Princess and the Me" Instead of Pea. I crack myself up.








That's me and the hubby's feet on the Big Island. And there's a turtle hanging out next to us. And NO that's not real black sand. I don't want anything to do with the bad luck curse. I bought the fake sand at pottery barn.







Look, I'm working so hard that even my computer area is a mess! Except for right now since I'm blogging.










Here's a 2nd look at where all the magic happens. That's my self portrait, "Mermaid Me" above my desk. And do you see my row of photos up by the ceiling? I know what you're thinking. You're thinking maybe I just stare at those instead of work. Actually what I do is set up a blog post! Like right now...

Oooh messy but oh so clean! And full of treasures. We've just bought a new bookshelf that helps us keep our stuff off the floor and chairs so we're feeling tidy too.

Ooohhh! I LOVE that pencil sharpener. Thanks for bringing me into your work areas and letting me look, and share, and smile...

You say your desk is messy but I'm wishing my office space looked that good. Love the photo of your and your hubby's feet but I'm glad to hear the sand is not the real thing.

How fun to see where the magic begins. Looking at all the magic paint brushes waiting to be used!
Stuff everywhere- fun land!
And the self portraits- a masterpiece.
I love them. It feels like home to me. Feels like I could come sit right next to you- (yes there is room) and watch the magic begin.
love

I love how bright your space is. That piece hanging above your computer desk is quite lovely.

What a really wonderful studio! Thanks for sharing with us.

I saw a display at our local botanical gardens last year of those masks from Costa Rica, they were all so beautiful! I posted a couple of them way back on my color carnival photo meme. Here's the link if you want to see them...
