The Craft Corner

Hope you all had a relaxing, sunshine filled weekend!  I sure did.  

This evening I took photos of my dining room turned craft room.  When we first moved into this house 3 years ago I had a formal dining room in here and it started to be the dumping ground for everything.  Shoes, papers, blankets, makeshift pantry, decorating items - you name it.  The husband and I decided to turn it into a craft room Martha would be proud of.  This is my favorite area in the room, the big white craft cube.  

Here it is in all it's glory.  Best $129 ever spent for a piece of furniture.  Sorry about the extension cord still plugged in, keeping it real people.  Over the last month that I was off work I cleaned out, dusted and revamped this area.  It is fun to change the look of it from time to time.  This time I added a few of my many vintage cake stands.  

The embellished wedding cake and bird was given to me at my bridal shower and has the word, bliss on it (my favorite word.)  It is sitting on an ivory ironstone cake stand I found recently. 

This is my absolute favorite Fostoria Cake Stand, a gift from my mom from my wedding.  She has the same one also.   The black and white photo is of Jay's dad, Lou.  Jay and I honeymooned at the Hotel Del Coronado in California and the week we returned from there we stumbled across this adorable HDC snow globe at the thrift store.  What are the odds? 

If you know me then you know I love anything with prisms.  Found this beauty at you guessed it...Goodwill!   Just a few knick knacks on top and a small glass jar filled with old boggle letters. 

Love this vintage cake stand, I also have the smaller matching one.  This cute white teacup is stamped Pottery Barn on the bottom and is currently storing my collection of paperclips =)  Jay spray painted the bird white and this is his current home.  I know there is no picture in the frame, just being real.  I tend to buy frames, find their home inside my home and it then takes me forever (no joke) to put a picture inside.  Why?  I have no idea.  I have plenty of pictures to choose from.  If you would like to come over and help me please do! 

So what do you think of our Nest Egg???  Couldn't pass this beauty up, currently it has $11.28 in it but whose counting?  Behind is my collection of Martha Stewart books. 

Love me some big glass jars filled with scrabble letters and my old dented metal piggy bank globe.  

I like to fill old salt and pepper shakers with vintage glitter.   For some reason I have acquired a few of the DeVilbiss vaporizer glass jars.  I think I like them because, 1. looks the word bliss is in it and 2. it is old, glass and I can put stuff in it.  Plus they are cheap. This one is holding Josie's craft scissors. 

This shelf is kind of boring, I need to switch it up.  A white Fiesta Millenium pitcher and an  ivory Haeger planter.  I do plan on planting something in it, just give me another few weeks.   

What do we have here?  Another glass jar filled with new and old buttons.  Let me know if you are looking for  one in particular!  And some more Martha books.  Don't know why I was just drawn to the cute white glass airplane mug.  Would be cute in a baby's room on a shelf.  

One of my favorite pictures of the husband from our honeymoon.   You see one of my favorite Fiesta vases in the background, found that at the Issaquah Antique Mall a few years back.  

An enamelware bin holds some cardstock paper.

This has nothing to do with the craft room but I had to add this in.  On Saturday we went to the Holland Happening Parade in Oak Harbor.  Maybe tomorrow I will post more about the fabulous town of OH.

Until then ~ good night!
