"Etsy Cottage Style" Welcome to my Cottage Craft Room Blog Party

 Welcome to my studio, craft room, sewing room, stc...!  Etsy Cottage Style is having a blog party and asking us to invite into our cottage craft rooms.  So, Welcome, Come on in and enjoy.  This cabinet is one of my favorite antique finds.  It is about 3 1/2 ft deep and all those drawers you see are individual.  Huge storage!  The top, back and sides are old beadboard style wood.  This thing is very sturdy.  It's  height is perfect for standing up or sitting at bar stool level which is great for me because I am tall. 
Next to the cabinet is a metal framed cart with a wooden top.  Also antique.  It has 6 large metal basket pull out drawers.  It is about 4 1/2 Ft Deep and perfect for my fabric!  It has heavy duty wheels and can be rolled out anywhere. 
My brother in law installed basic open shelving units above so I could store my wire storage locker baskets above and be able to see where everything is.  It not a neat look but I like the convenience of not having to search throgh bins.  This way I can see what's in there and get down the one I need. 

This piece is actually a closet organizer that didn't fit in one of the bedroom closets, so we pulled it into here and used it to display all my jars of ribbon, buttons, and other vintage collections.  The top displays some of my creations.  Again, I love using jars so I can see what is in them and pull out the one I need. 
These pictures show what my wire baskets look like...stuffed!  LOL But I love it!  I love having the visual of all my goodies, it gives me inspiration. 

And here is my little sewing area and sewing machine.  My sister and I use the heck out of it!  It is a basic one, nothing fancy...but t works and is easy to use.  And you have probably noticed all the aprons hanging here and there.  Some are orders and others are vintage aprons that I collect.

And this little vintage wire shopping cart was one of my great finds at the Alameda Pointe Flea Market earlier this year.  I use it to hold all my paper and vintage wall paper rolls. 
Thanks for stopping by my lil cottage studio.  Please pop on over to Etsy Cottage Style and take a look at all the others joining the blog party.  Click on their linky at the end of the post and you can see more awesome craft rooms and studios...

You have a fabulous organized crafting room and it is very inspiring! I like clear bottles and bins also to see what all is available to work with.

The tall white box inside your cabinet looks like a charm holder I also have to hold many pretties.

I need to keep my sewing machine out to learn how to work it better also. Great inspiration!

Smiles, Cyndi
