Where I Create

Plum Cottage is the name of our little 50's home. It is tiny by today's standards, about 700 sq. ft. 

We live on 1/4 acre, with a workshop and other outbuildings plus several gardens, have lived here since 1973 and seen lots of changes to our area. We keep working on making this our little haven from the crazy, hectic world that we live in. 

This view is from the driveway looking south.

This is our front courtyard and my creative space is behind the wall on the left. Our living room is straight ahead. This window is double paned and does not open. It is also tinted as this is a south facing window. The busy road is about 15'-20' behind where I am standing to take this picture.

Here is my little space, (6'x8') where I do most of my creating, and also where my computer is. Plus it's a library of sorts.  We have LOTS of books so this is just a portion of them in this space.  I emptied two shelves to put some of my supplies. The plastic drawers underneath the granite worktop are filled and there is an overflow on the floor.

I love your place and your space, The archway is a perfect announcement to your space. You seem to have all you need right there. You do lovely hand work, its a skill that is not handed to everyone. You are blessed to be able to be that creative.

What a great place to do your needle work. I love your pictures of flowers! My husband was the gardener in the family. I miss having flowers around. I am gardening challenged. It's a miracle some of his roses are still living. Thanks for sharing with us.

Your place and space looks so inviting and cozy. Would love a browse through all your bookshelves. I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who has pictures and little treasures perching on the edges, because where else shall we put them?
