Where Sonia Creates!!

Hello everyone,
Here I am, finally done with painting and moving furniture. We did a lot this weekend.
It was a great weekend, I got what I always wanted for mother's day... A studio, a room for me to create and go crazy in!! And I am going crazy... I had been thinking about it for so long that now that I am sitting in it, I am in awe... I'm finally in a room all of my own...

Well, let me share some pictures. This is how everything sits for now. I have a feeling I'll be moving things around and putting things up and others down... well, thats part of the fun and inspiration right??!

Peonies and my first blossomed Rose. The floral scent in here right now is divine.

Remember the vanity I bought in W Virginia. There it is!!

The Torqouis dress and this necklace are flea market finds. The necklace does have some missing stones but the main part still shimmers in day light. I love it. My hubby and my oldest boy worked hard, and youngest one did with less attention for one day while everyone worked, to turn the house around, mowing lawn, selling a car (bye bye to my car, but hey, I got a better, newER car now) and so much more on Saturday. I found some time to hop at a local Flea Market yesterday morning. All in all, it was a great weekend, lots of accomplishment, great mother's day yesterday. We had b'fast with inlaws. We had some time to relax and enjoy each other as a family in the afternoon. It was a gorgeous day wasn't it? It was around here anyway...

I wanted to let you know who wore those pretty dresses in the previous post. Ladies, you were close in some cases but no.

The first pink gown....and oh, I thought it was going to be obvious because I blogged about this a while back. The first gown was worn by Emmy Rossum, as Christine Daee in The Phantom of the Opera.

The second dress was worn by Helena Bonham Carter in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Do they ring a bell now...LOL

Wow...thank you for playing everyone. That was fun. I did find some more fancy gowns but I couldn't post them cos the color didn't go with Pink Saturdays theme. Maybe some other time.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs to All

Oh.My.Gosh! Your studio is beautiful. I'm so happy for you, and just a little bit envious, all at the same time. You will have no problem being inspired in that pretty room. Love the vanity being used as your laptop desk. Also like the rolls of paper stuck in the planter; may have to borrow that one from you. Enjoy! ♥
