The fabric piles are dwindling (sort of)

The hall is filling up with totes ready to sell.

Have I ever shown the hall? Not sure.

Overflow from my small studio... books, magazines
 and of course,
more drawers...always drawers.

The buds are budding which is great,
but it means major yard clean up which is not great.

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns,
or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses." 

Spring forward, lean forward, lean in,
be there, be square, 
pay attention, play fair,
let it be,
just be.....

I love to see every available space used! I'm ready to get Spring moving for me also.
hugs, Linda

I like your little verse at the end.
I don't recall seeing the hall before, but it looks fab, I must say.
About these totes, are you selling them on line, too? I'd be interested.

Well, If you ever did show the hallway before then I missed it. LOVE all those little drawers!! Also love the quote and added it to my stack to someday make it into the altered quote book. Thanks for sharing!

I'm loving your hallway! Great storage...especially for inspiration magazines! Too many of mine are in boxes!

I like your little verse at the end, too, Suzan. :) Leanin' in (think I'll read her book!)...Leaning forward (always/I come from the left side of the fence) and I read all of the rest of your writing SO honestly. Love what you post and how you say it. Reaffirms my humanity and how important we all are to this earth...

I will be glad that rose bushes have flowers!! And a few thorns. Can't wait for spring. Your totes look lovely!

Suz, your photos here have inspired me to adapt and extra bedroom into my studio space, my hubby thinks it should be elsewhere, but I am standing firm here! Your organizational skills are amazing.....also you must be speed sewing....those totes look beautiful!! So versatile, and useful as well! I am just being this week!! N.xoxo

Wow! Just. Plain. Wow! How do you keep things so neat WHILE creating, Z?
There's always, always some project sitting neatly on my farm table under the lamp, but WHILE creating, things are amok, amok, amok.
Lovely hearing from you. Just take a wonderful cuppa out into the garden with you and take your time w/ the yard clean up.

It looks like you make some amazing totes.
and as for spring...can't come to soon for me, but here in my neck of the woods, it won't really come until late May....
