After I played around with the doilies on Saturday (see HERE), I spent a couple more hours refreshing my sewing room. A 'declutterer' by nature, I viewed my space to see what could be removed, what could be donated to the op shop, and what could be sold off.
The end result was much more pleasing to my eye.
Let's start at the front door as I welcome you in to my home, shall we?
This is the entrance area which has huge windows overlooking the street with lots of greenery on very side. This area leads straight onto the lounge room...
When I had my 'doily day' on Saturday I also set up other little vignettes to make this house a true reflection of the atmosphere I most relax in. I can't believe we've already been living here two months and it's taken this long for me to have a break from my schedule and create a 'home'...but at least I've finally made that start.
(for those who read my magazine and now wonder why I have glass in this frame its because it sits by a window and there was too much dust coming through so I had to bend my own rule and replace the glass. sob.)
Of course, there will always be some messy spots, but messy can still look sweet...
Now let's turn to the right from the entrance and we'll go through the little dining room which is just off the galley style kitchen...
...and straight through the French doors to my sewing room!
I love a tidy sewing room, and it's not hard to keep it this way.
Regular decluttering is fun, refreshing, and quite simply inspirational.
I have all my fabric right in front of me, plus labelled boxes and containers with all my notions, projects on the go, and special trims like vintage lace and buttons.
This week is all about playing in my space again! \o/
As requested, here are the recipes for the dishes I made the girls at our sewing day yesterday...

I was going to share the next two Shabby Roses Home blocks today, but realised when I woke this morning that it would have been a day early!
Tomorrow...I'll have them for you tomorrow. But right now...
I'm off to play with some fabric!
