Where Bloggers Create 2015 ...

So happy be participating in Where Bloggers Create 2015
Thank you Karen Valentine for hosting this wonderful event where we open up the doors to our studio spaces ~
Welcome to
Vintage Sparrow Studio
I am so happy to have you drop by.
Lots more studio photos can be found on my sidebar by clicking on
the Where Bloggers Create image from past years.
My little studio fuels my creativity
and soothes my soul.
It is filled with treasures that mean the world to me.
A spot where I can bring my ideas to paper ...
I opened up a little Etsy shop less than a year ago and have met so many lovely
people while sending my Art all over the world ♥
©The lovely~ness of daily~ness is my mantra
I truly believe that it is the small, daily events in life that are the most important.
Daily visits from the Sparrows are a blessing to our garden.
Sparrow Studio holds lots of lovely little found treasures.
In fact, just about everything (short of gifts) has been found either at a garage sale, auction, our local animal charity shop ... and even curb side.
Like the Sparrows, I love to gather up these treasures, bringing them back to my home and weave them into a little nesting spot ♥
an assortment of canvas filled with images of bunnies, fox, trees, the moon , sun and stars fill a corner of the room...
Always something sitting on my art table
I am always with my camera, and love to turn my pictures into cards ...
this Yellow Finch sitting in our Lilac bush was taken through my kitchen window :-)
 
my favourite summer bouquet ... hand picked dandelion blooms in a jam jar
from my grand son xoxo
My favourite water vessel,
a mug with my children's image on the front
taken 25 years ago.
It isn't just painting that happens in Sparrow Studio ...
I like to create jewelry,
and weave ...
make dream catchers ...
for inside and out ...
sew
plan my garden and create little seed packages to gift to friends ...
carve stamps ...
whimsy always :-)
where the sun streams in ...
and memories from long ago sketches hang ...
She loved her Sparrows
From Where You Dwell
#1 in the ©Women of the Woods Series
inspired by my love and respect for Nature. While on long Woodland walks with my dog, listening to the sweet serenades of Sparrows, the idea of a series came to me.
and speaking of my dog ...
Archer - my constant companion in the Studio and out ... who I refer to as my "tea/coffee break reminder" because who could resist that face !
I suppose I am a Sparrow
A stay-at-home-bird

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I've loved showing you around ... hope you come by again ♥
I'm looking forward to visiting the other participating studios and see where you create.
~have a wonderful weekend friends~

I like the various craft materials you work with and find the Women of the Woods series enchanting.
Your studio name is sweet and sparrows are a favourite bird to have in our yard.
Happy crafting.

I've been to a few of the artists in this event, Deb, and your poat was simply lovely and a bit different. You have so many creative outlets and it is not so much the space around you as is what is in your heart. I didn't know you sewed! So many talents What you feel in the outdoors- I identify.

Hugs to you---so sorry I've been behind. The hand doesn't help! :)

I realize I’m late visiting, but I couldn’t miss this opportunity to see your beautiful and creative work space. You make AWESOME art. I'm drooling.

You have such a lovely space from the green sewing machine to the lovely cup that holds your brushes and water, to the beautiful photographs you take. Like you, I find most of my art fodder in thrift stores and at garage sales. No big name embellishments found at my place. Thanks for sharing this true beauty.

Karen Valentine said...
