i'm flabbergasted

Imagine my surprise to get a post from Susan Lenz telling me I've won her giveaway celebrating her two years of blogging!! I am thrilled to pieces! This is the lovely prize. I still can't believe it.

We picked up my new area rug for the studio yesterday, and it is just what I thought it would be. I'm so glad for the color accuracy (I had visions of it turning out to be green or blue in reality) and it fits in really well with the rest of the studio.

Here it is in situ. We're just deciding where the shelves and tables will go, my husband will install another electrical box in the wall with the windows (he's SO handy to have around), and then I'm going to MOVE IN! Really, this weekend I will, I promise.

Another view featuring my less-than-beautiful worktables, but I'm not getting new ones. They'd only get grotty in a hurry, too.

I'm pleased how the rug looks on the white floor. Everything has gone together really well. We are painting a free-hanging shelf to go above the light colored table, which I will use to store my many crafty books & magazines.

Other plans for the day include finishing a couple of things for the new hanging at The VAAM Gallery, which goes up at the beginning of the week.

I hope you all have a marvelous day.
