things i'm loving 'pieces of joy'

Greetings all,
Paisley Jade's 'Things I'm Loving' today celebrates pieces of joy in my studio - they are not expensive, designer or fancy, but colourful finds which make me smile this week.
This pigeon hole bookcase holds an incredible volume of my craft supplies, it was free from the Shop Handmade shop fit.  I earned it, by GOD it was heavy, hard to move, trailer home & store in the garage until i was ready to use it in my new studio makeover.
Don't you use a vase as your dish cloth tub??
Kikki-K Swedish Horse stamp, so excited to use this.
Always up for a note holder from Smiggle & my first apple stamp from Kikki-K went missing, i couldn't live without one, we could always do with 2 apples stamps anyway!!
While in Smiggle i found these giant push pins, now i realise i should have put a ruler in the shot for scale.  Let me assure you, they are huge, pack of 5 for $5.
Treated myself to Eat Pray Love on DVD this week, still yet to watch it.  Really looking forward to her take on Italy, we love Italy so much, the food is a huge part of it.  I'm pretty zen with my love & life, so i wonder if the movie will have an effect on me?? 
So a quick trip around pieces in my studio which bring me joy.  Have a great weekend, i plan a whole lot of sewing in my new studio space with movies in the background, the children can do some stamping (looks like rain all weekend, sports have already been cancelled) oh & i'm running a BBQ fundraiser at the local hardware store on Sunday.  I just want to sew in my cosy space, i need quilts, lots of them for the Shop!!  Love Posie
PS i'm also loving a great giveway, check it out & good luck!!

I love that Swedish Horse stamp- so wishing I had a Kikki K here and I would be out to get one first thing. I have a small collection of Swedish horses- spent my childhood in Scandinavia and have always loved them. Have a great rainy weekend- sometimes they are the best. Cx

I love the look of the horsey stamp. I've never been to a Kikki-K store but hope to tomorrow when I'm on a bit of a trip.
Have a fun weekend! xx

kikki k have excelled themselves lately. I love so much of their current line. The birdie motif is, of course, a fave for me. x

Looking good. I love Kikki K stamps :) - but even more, I am loving your pigion holes!!! Hey, I am currently sharing my "creative" space with the baby's bedroom... so I end up doing stuff in the Mr's office (and he does get sick of me leaving yarn and such around...) Any suggestions?

makeitgiveit said...

Awesome shelves and GREAT creative space. Very cool! Oh and the stamp how great is that!!??

I love kikki k and smiggle, you are lucky to be able to go there and shop. The shelving looks ideal for all you supplies. Have a great weekend and enjoy not having to go anywhere.
