Friday - Around the Studio Lovin' 


Hello Lovelies....

How are you?  How was your week? Do tell! I'd love to hear!

Mine was pretty darn FAB.....despite the wind and rain. I'm happy to say the sun is shining today... but a little sad the wind is CRAZY strong!! 'sigh'....

But sun is good!!  :) I will take it!

I really wanted to pop in and say hi and thank you for the lovely comments throughout the week... 

Oh and invite you over to a new friend's 'house'.... where I am sharing a little about me.... actually it's quite a lot....Becky asked me some really FAB questions.... if you have a moment, pop over to Life with Kaishon to check out my interview and say Hello to Becky!  Pretty please.....Thank you so much for having me 'over' Becky!


Seeing as I am here, I thought I would share my blueberry pics....and a shot of my latest I ramble...

I bought these berries about a week ago...and I'm just getting around to photographing them.... good thing too.... cause John has threatened to eat them on more than one occasion!  :)

Blueberries are so darn photogenic, don't you think? And I just love how fab they look on my new and totally cool galvanized tray from Winners. I adore the wooden handles... a mix of warm and cold.... so perfect! I almost missed it too! It was kind of hidden under some other 'stuff'.... I'm pretty sure I let out a squeal when I spotted it! :) 

sweet little blue bowls - also from Winners......

{so happy Winner's is open again after the flooding scare!  I think it was closed for about 3 weeks....and I missed it terribly.}

And how about a little peek of my newest FIND. Honestly, we were meant to be together! The first time I saw it I walked away and talked myself out of it. Actually John was doing the talking.....He's much more practical than me!

But, a few weeks later.... I realized it was one of those once in a life time finds! I had the perfect space for it in the studio and I needed more storage! And so, John came home and I was like.... 'honey... I really must have that cupboard...  It's meant to be!' :)

Isn't is so beautiful? :) It stands 7 feet tall....any higher we would not have been able to tip it up.... the studio ceiling is quite low....

I just finished white washing it the other night... it was kind of a distressed grey with the dark wood showing through....and the one side wasn't painted at all. I am loving white....and aiming for an almost all white studio.... Inside it has beautiful solid wood shelves.... and it's FULL already!

Oh speaking of white... we are celebrating 'white' this month at the i-Studio....  come visit when you have a moment.  


Anyhow, my studio makeover is almost complete. I will definitely share a tour soon!  In the meantime, just a few snaps of some studio 'stuff' I love...

I'm always tying something with string or hemp or jute.... I found 4 matching coffee sealers.... the day I walked away without the cupboard....  They are Nabob jars...Who knew coffee came in a glass jar?

Anyhow, they have a glass sealer lid, but I grabbed a tin one and drilled 2 holes in the top for the string and hemp to pull thru... works like a charm!

I love displaying my decorative paper...rather than just shoving it in a drawer....

And I picked up this sweet bouquet of spray roses at the grocery store! They are quite cheap right now.... I have another bundle hanging in the closet.... hoping they dry nicely..... for future photo possiblities.... I love the hint of pink....

Okay my friends....  I could go on... but I must sign off.....

I will be back this weekend with a new texture....and to announce the give away winners from the TT Garden Party.

So my friends.... have you found any 'treasures' lately?  I'd love to see.... share the link in the comments and I'll stop by to check it out!

Have a beautiful weekend....

Love and gratitude.....xxo,

p.s. Registration for the July round of the Skinny-Mini Photoshop eCourse is open.  Click HERE to get the scoop!

Um, Um, UMMMMMMMM............I love that new cubboard. What a find. I am like you, and adore the white too. I can't wait to see the makeover........... Well, today I got new stuff in my bag and I am so excited I can hardly stand myself. I got the Nikon 50 mm 1.4 lens & the Nikon 14-24 wide angle lens. I also got the manfrotto tripod and joystick ball head that I have been eyeing for over a year. Now the wind has got to stop blowing and the sun has to come out so I can go out and play...... Oh the joy!!!!!! Have a great weekend, Kim!

Oh Kim, your cupboard is beautiful. What is it about white these days. I'm loving it too. I'v got an old cupboad I want to whitewash. And like yours one side isn't painted either. Curious? Any suggests on how to best whitewash an old cupboard?
June 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAutumn
@Autumn..... check out miss mustard seed.......
for all kinds of tips...
but I just slapped white paint (that i used on the walls) right over the existing finish... (only prep i did was wash it)..... I'm thinking it may have been smart to seal it...but I'm kind of impatient.... and it turned out pretty good.

Miss Mustardseed uses this cool Chalk paint that I'd like to try..... requires no prep.... you gotta check it out. :)

xxo, kim

Loved reading the interview with you!

I so love all your white! Makes me want to redo too.
June 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRoxi
Hi Kim,
I love the blueberry photos and that cupboard! I adore anything that is white-washed...and think I should give it a try....but everything I redo is always packed with color. I just finished a file cabinet to house my paper scraps -

Cheers -

Your studio looks lovely. I could look at it all day. You inspire me but I'm not getting much done. Discipline is what I need.
June 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCheryl
Your gorgeous cupboard looks very much like mine!
It came from a neighbours barn. The only thing I did was give it a good sanding and line the inside with a pink and white ticking stripe wallpaper.
I love stuff like this!
June 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi M.
Kim, I love your white studio and that beautiful old cabinet. I can't imagine it any other way than whitewashed. Beautiful! What an inspiring space.

Have a lovely day!
