Where Bloggers Create 2012

I am celebrating a room of my own....I started participating in Where Bloggers Create a few years ago.  I showed how you bloom where you are planted.  And, now we moved to a new house. We were in a house my husband built for 17 years.  When we looked at this house and were almost through the walk thru and my husband opened the last door and said "Well here's your room"......I knew 

 everything would  work out and this would be our new home.  I thought a lot about how to decorate my room, but when it came right down to it....I just unpacked boxes and covered the walls with the contents.  Just like Art.....there 

 was the thought.....but, most of all there were hours spent just putting everything in it's is still a work in progress.  I love it....It is my own little own little world.

 “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” 

— Walt Disney

What a wonderful space you have, full of texture, color, and apparently, MUSIC! My husband and I bought a home last October and have slowly been settling into it, though I too was thrilled when I realized I'd have my own crafty nook.

Thank you for sharing, and do drop by if you get the chance,

Love the sectioned wood cabinet and paper lanterns! Lovely space, so warm and inviting. Yes, all our rooms are never "finished" it seems ;)

Heather Graham said...

What a neat room! And the rug is awesome... I have the tattoo bamboo mat from French Freak - I think that's where you got your's, too, maybe? Anyway, so excited that I found you on WBC, and happy to be following you.... Would love for you to visit sometime!
Have a great weekend,

Your space is SO cozy! Can I come play?? I love how it seems full of what inspires you. Glad you like my blue cart from IKEA. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it and drove to the one IKEA in this area that had it in stock!

Hi Geralyn, So nice to meet you and thank you for stopping to visit and your kind comment.
I am so inspired by your space and all the details. Love your workdesk chair and the rug, I want one too!!
How special to find a new home and then celebrate a room of your own.

Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing your wonderful room.

Wonderful space!! I love the corner with all the great things hanging...including the paper balls and the pennants.
Your chair is great too! What a special room he built for you and how beautifully you've arranged it!

Kathy said...

I adore your room! Mine is not "decorated" either. I cannot restrain myself so everything I love finds it's home there, whether it "goes" or not. Your room is beautiful in every way! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing your amazing space.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

We had the same luck, Geralyn! We moved this past fall and the condo we moved to had a storage room at the back that I knew we wouldn't use for storage. Before we even closed I was planning it out! Your space looks wonderful and it looks like you've added yourself to it beautifully. I love your chair and all the beautiful things you've hung on your wall. I'm sure I'll make some changes to mine over the next year, but for right now, I'm just so glad to have a room! Thanks for sharing your tour!

Hi, Geralyn!

I love your space. It must have been very hard to leave the home your husband built. We are presently in our 17th year in the home my husband built.

Thank you for visiting my blog. You are right the windows are great light, but they definitely take up wall space.

Hey, I'm a Jersey girl too!



No matter where we create, it's an awesome place! I enjoyed your room and loved seeing all about you.
Thank you for visiting me.

I love your creative space and is full of all kinds of treasures I can see, I may have to come and borrow some, lol. It does take time to get all organized doesn't it, lots of work, enjoy the party, I think it is going to take me weeks to get through them all. I do plan on doing just that:) Hugs Marilou
