STUDIO STYLE...

You have to have an idea of what you are going to do, but it should be a vague idea.

-Pablo Picasso-Ideas have been dancing in my head...As I have been reflecting...On settling into my new nest...My thoughts and ideas are all a tangle...As I seek direction...Of creating a new creamy dreamy style in my studio...I've been trying to put my best foot forward...Wanting a chic sophisticated style...But not a by the book copy cat design...One that still reflects my rustic roots and earthy style...But I've lost my head...I am unable to pin down a specific direction to move in...So I wait for that crystal clear moment of clarity to sparkle into being...As my dream unfolds itself...One step, one thought, one idea at a time...I have come to realize that this is not a process to be hurried along but one to be savored. Some things that seemed right at the beginning did not make the cut...While others crept upon me with great surprise and delight...I will continue my dance of ideas today...Hoping they will blossom anew...As I take a break for a little flea market field trip seeking inspiration and possibly to stumble upon the perfect little book shelf. In the meantime, with a very vague idea of where this new studio is headed, I am opening my heart, head, and hands to any new notions that might wing themselves my way... I hope you all enjoy a blissful day!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

P.S. I am sufficiently recovered from all illness and injury to carry on and have had three successful days of getting settled into the studio. Only three more crates to sort through and then the pretty part begins! I hope to have a full reveal very soon.

I am so happy to learn that you have totally recovered. I can talk about allergic reactions caused by wasp bites too, I have been warned by the doctor: if ever a wasp bites you in the 'neck area' immediately go to the hospital because you could suffocate from the (internal) swellings, so I want to give you that advice too. I just know that your studio is gorgeous, but I cannot wait to see it! Love the snail mail too, isn't it great to find a cheerful envelope between the bills? Have a sunny day Miss Sandy!

This encourages me so much as I lament over what on earth to do with my kitchen/living room which has been in a state of...whatever you want to call it since October. I like so many styles and I'm having a hard time finding the right inspiration.

I can't wait to see what you decide upon.

Vee said...

Lovely thought that the process is as important as the result and true on so many levels. Have great fun seeking inspiration. I'll copy you if you find some. :. (I feel about as inspired as a soggy dishrag and too lazy or worn out to seek the prize.)

Kelly Littmann said...

Miss Sandy, I cannot believe that I have never found you before. Your blog is wonderful. I think I may have come across it when I was just a blog stalker because the lovely name sounds so familiar. But this has been such a treat to come by and read some of your posts. i loved 'I can cry if I want to' when you missed the party. I was laughing so hard. Baby and Inez certainly had reason to be sad.But by the looks of this post, they will not be dissappointed again.
I'm going to love it here!
Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and encouragement about my studio. It meant so much coming from you.
hugs
