The Secret Lab


Many of you know my Earth Angels workspace -- aka "The Secret Lab" -- from issue #1 of Where Women Create and the 12 page feature on the second storey studio/office/storage hub for the business...


Well, it's a true working space so it has been through quite a lot in the 2 years since that piece came out...many events, innumerable re-organizations, turnover of inventory, art and treasures.... and well some very, did I say messy, messy days. But, thanks to a good dose of fall cleaning frenzy, we've got the space ready for some pictures and we wanted to share them with you...

Here are some overall images of the space that might look familiar from the article, but all the contents are different since things sell all the time...




The stairs are my "guest book"; more names are added with each new round of visitors....



I love this window and keep it laden with old frames and light colored treasures...



Here is a pile of loot waiting to get sorted and tucked into the "rumpus room" we are building in the house...yeah, that's a chicken coop and well it might just become a bookcase...and I am a bad girl and tend to hoard furniture and props for "you never know when you might need it"...besides we are always working on some remodeling project or another (I am already storing stuff for the tba "powder room" over-haul!)

I adore Kitty's work and I might be able to sit in this corner all day musing over her creations...


Here are my fave shots...








And here are some more close-ups of some favorite goodies...








So there you have it, but get a quick glimpse while it is tidy...when we come home from Atlanta and The Country Living Fair the space is sure to get messy mighty quick as we sort and unpack art and treasures...

Thanks Oliver...it was fun and wow, did it need to be done!
Thanks for operation clean sweep, you are the best...
