Latest Addition to My Studio

I found the McCoy vase at a thrift shop recently.
I think it will be perfect for holding colored pencils and more.
It's my new favorite thing!

My little studio has become my place to dream.  I have been thinking
so much lately about enriching my life and I have decided ...

to start sketching and painting again.  I am going to paint a
shabby chic interior for my studio.  As soon as I finish it and
have it framed,  I will let you see it.  Until then ...

I am happily joining ~

It's warm and sunny outside this morning and Bentley
is having so much fun in the yard.  I love to see him so happy!

Susan and Bentley


  1. Susan that Mccoy vase is just darling. Love it~! You should do some sketching you are so talented and I betcha it would melt away stress ~ Love the sketch of Bentley ;-)

  2. I love the pink vase. In fact....I have talked my husband into taking me for a drive today to an antique store about 40 miles away from my place. Will be a nice day for a drive.
    If you can paint and sketch, the I say DO IT. don't let your talents go unused.

  3. Susan, that little vase is so pretty. Perfect for your snug space. I think painting again would be great, if you did that one of sweet Bentley, you've certainly got talent for it..Happy Friday..Judy

  9. I love McCoy. I like seeing your little wicker set. I had one as a child, hours of enjoyment. I planned on drawing and painting again this winter and time just keeps slipping away on me. I'm glad you are going to start sketching and painting again. Hopefully soon I will get motivated...J
