My Creative Space


Welcome to the 5th Where Bloggers Create. 
Thank you to our hostess Karen from
My Desert Cottage.
 I was so excited to participate once again.
As you may know, I am on a little hiatus with my blog, but just had to make a special stop in to visit the wonderful studios and creative spaces in blogland.
Last year I was off my game when WBC was scheduled.
Our Miss Beazy had been hit by a car and died.
It was a difficult time being just a few weeks later to post,
but I did anyway.
Looking back there was so much more I could have shared.
This season I have made a few changes
to have my space function better
and like most of you know, where we create always evolves.
My space is an attached converted 3rd car garage and just steps away from my cottage. It is positioned with a wall of windows giving great light and just outside are roses planted which inspire me everyday.
Storage space is plentiful,
and I try to stay organized most of the time.
There is always room for improvement and new ways to accommodate all my stuff!
But stuff is needed to create and each and every treasure is precious.
So here's my space where I  create each day.
So glad you are here for a visit.

Welcome




I created the black and white toile skirt several years ago to hide the under table storage.
When the skirt is rolled back, these rolling units hold lots of goodies
and decorative papers.
The cabinets above the work table store everything within reach.
My hubby and son installed these for me last year.
Lazy Susan holds lots of fairy dust and glitter in vintage shakers.


Vintage drinking and canning jars hold brushes, pens and more.

Paints are stored under a vintage cake keeper hand painted with my cottage roses.
Creamer and tea light holder house more tube paints
of oils and watercolors all on this large vintage turn table.







To the end of the wall, past the work table I have stacked old and odd pieces of furniture 
creating a storage wall unit. All painted cottage cream.
To the cabinet door and drawers I have used
chalk board paint and stick on labels.
Sewing drawers and vintage storage bins tuck in
here and there to form lots of little places to keep
supplies in easy reach.



French graphics and verses inspire everyday.


This chest of drawers below was created a few years ago by adding toile papers to
each drawer with trim all around and painted cottage cream. The chest was an 80 percent off piece
 from Hobby Lobby because it had a crack on
one of the drawers, which was covered with the papers.
It worked perfect and you would never know the crack is there.



Across the room I have another work area that overlooks roses just outside the window.
They were not in bloom the day I took this pic, but full of buds.
This vintage chair I just re-created using  fabric from my laundry sewing room redo. Giving it a~
Time to Create theme!
The treasure pillow is also one I created some time ago.

 The weather turns really hot here in the summer, it's Texas you know~
And, since this is part of the garage and not part of the homes AC, I have a window AC unit which keeps this room almost too cold.
For the winter months, I added  this sweet decorative and functional heater by Dura Flame last fall.
It has the glow of a pretty flame and throws heat if needed.
It makes the room cozy for creating and toasty warm.
Right now in July it's 100 degrees
and the AC is a blessing!




The entry wall has my desk where I do all the computer work and also holds
printers, and more storage with files underneath the counter.

Shelves above the desk hold more boxed storage
with a few treasures that inspire me each day.

The vintage White House painting above the desk is a puzzle turned painting. My son made this for me many years ago.  It is the famous 1914 John Ross Key painting
of the White House with roses on the front lawn.


The box storage units on this shelf with spools for handles are created from old fencing. My son made these for me with scraps when he got a new fence at his home. I still would like to decorate them and will in the future.


This large distressed ceiling tile sits on my easel when not is use.
It displays cards and tags from near and far friends.
Behind the easel is 3 large storage closets that house lots of storage
shown below.
To the left is long key designed ribbon holding family pics
with graphics on toile papers.

These large closets are directly across the room from my desk and covers the original garage door which has been sealed closed,
 but can open if needed.
They are painted cottage cream or my favorite honeysuckle bloom.
Inside they hold lots of storage.
The many art books I have studied with over the years,
supplies, paints, tools and more.



Jewelry hanging bag holds little treasures for creating.


  I use lazy Susan's on the shelves for easy access to supplies.


Art books galore~
It is organized, even if it looks like a mess.
Well maybe it's an organized mess! LOL


To the end of these closet units,
 I have 2 stacked drawer units in white with
vintage graphics in the drawers to mark what they hold.
They sit atop more drawers filled
with more inspirational design books.

************
Cork inspiration board and vintage lace for handy use.

Crocheted lace, all created by my grandmother.
I love to use them for photo shoots.

 Above the closets are more decorative storage of supplies
 and treasures ready for redesign and display.
White, burlap and natural tones fill this space.
You can see the garage door mechanics in the background painted
white to sort of go away.




 I have tried to use the room to the best advantage
 going up for storage and utilizing the most of the
square footage.

******
Below are more pictures sharing touches around the space
high up and eye level.



White House photographers took this photo and Mrs. Bush sent two of them to my hubby and I with
her letter of thanks for that day.
The other hangs in Larry's office at his work.

These invitations in 98 and 04 were made possible as a member with the Society of Decorative Painters.
My work was juried before the invite.

*************
Toile fabric below is cut for my desk and placed under
a heavy clear desk blotter.

Canisters for rolls of tulle.


Pretty lamp shade wrapped in tulle for a new look
with trims and lace flower to finish this redesign.
Great to do for an old shade and the tulle is one dollar from
The Dollar Tree.

Cozy creating in the evening.


When I am designing and painting,
most of the time I am standing.
For this to work,
I have added bed risers to my table to raise
it to around waist high.
See them in the lower right corner of the above pic~

 Two faux candle chandelier's hang together
with crystals and wood butterfly.

The  long cottage white curtains are embroidered
in a gorgeous flower design.
They tie back or hang loose.

Remember when I painted my work chairs last year?
You can do this you know.
Paint, seal and that's it.
No special paint needed although flat house paint works best on the surface.
Seal when dry with a water base varnish.
I like to add a new coat of varnish every couple years or touch ups if needed.



So glad you could join me today and spend some time in my studio.
This creative space lets me,
dream, create, design and remember where I started so long ago
at the kitchen table.
  The joys of being a long time member of the National Society of Decorative Painters.


Many cottage roses later, a lot has changed.
 But change is good and necessary to grow.


I am so thankful for my many blessings.
The greatest of those, my walk in faith,
my family, great friends
and the joy of being blessed to create and work from my home
studio doing what I love and was called to share.


Each day brings something new
and finding that time to create
is like breathing.
Just have to do it!


More fun in new directions.


Making friendships who inspire and encourage.



Always with my love of roses and forever bringing that to a surface with paint.

Thank you for visiting this year once again.
I look forward to traveling around blogland to
visit you, your spaces that inspire me, and
 your talents that always amaze.



Have fun and enjoy the party.

suziqu's thread works said...

Hi Celestina
Thank you so much for sharing the place
that inspires your heart to create the beauty that you do. Everything looks so fresh and neat. It must be such a pleasure to work there.

I see we share our love of roses so very much - another wonderful source of inspiration.

Hope you enjoy the tour.
You may like to enter my GIVEAWAY on your visit to me.
Sending hugs,
Suzy

Betty said...

I have my mouth wide open right now from all the beautiful inspiration I see on your workroom. It has given me some ideas for mine. This year I have to move my things into another room because we are changing the room I had my things in and making it a total music room for Hubby. Again I am stunned by what you have done.

The Comfort of a Safe Place said...

So glad you took the time to come back to your blog to post all of the photos and story of your Space. It's wonderful! Loved it all and really like the painted desk chair, which I hadn't seen before.

Hugs

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Such a great space, Celeste! It's beautiful and so organized! You've got some great ideas for storage and organization. I love seeing all the little pretty things you have scattered throughout, too. I like being able to see things like that when I'm in my space. So glad you took a break from your break to join in! : )

Mystical Gypsy said...

Wonderful room! Loved so many things about it, i.e. your use of lazy susans. And I think we have the same dresser! Best wishes, Connie

Melissa Bishop said...

Lorena Wheeler said...

Awe My Sweet Friend,
Yes it is hard to believe a year has gone by your Miss Beasie and My sweet Chloe have been gone. I am sure you are like me and miss her even still.
Your space is such an amazing reflection of you! I am sure I will be back again to scour it with all the pretties and details, that only your amazing creative eye has!

Hope all is well...we are doing well too! My daughter is a Sr this year in college with 2 more years left...can you believe that?

You are loved!
Be Blessed!
Lorena

Marcia Pilar said...

Your creative space has always been one of my favorites in blogland, Celeste. Every detail is beautiful. You know how much I love black and white. Melted my heart to see Miss Beazy. I'd never leave this room.
I'm on a blogging leave too...finally surrendered after resisting so much. I don't know if I'll blog again, but for now I will continue to enjoy visiting my lovely blogging friends.
This was such a treasure today.
Much love, friend.
xoxo's

Your space is almost as amazing as you are Celeste. Everything is placed with great care and taste. You have so many beautiful items and storage ideas here. I love those tulle holders, they are awesome, and the cake plate and dome to tuck away paints is amazing too! As I said, you are an amazing woman full of creativity! PS, I loved seeing the card I sent card framed and on your shelf. We miss you in blogland! ~Diane

Donna said...

Wow, wow, wow! Your studio is just as amazing and organized as I had imagined, Celestina! I was in awe as I poured over each and every photo of yours! I love your theme of black and white, and of course adore your gorgeous toile. You have so many wonderful organizational ideas that I just may have to borrow: the lazy Susan's are genius, and I am in love with your darling shakers full of glitter! I also love your special tribute to your sweet Miss Beazy, I would have loved to have known her. You are amazing and oh so inspiring, thank you so much for sharing with us! You are the best!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Celestina Marie,
Your 3rd garage indeed got turned into a very nice area for you to create. The natural light is so important and you got it with those perfect windows. So many years of creating art has made you more or less a pro and you know how to organize things very well.
Enjoy this for many more years to come and sorry for Miss Beasly, she got joined by our Sacha girl on June 17... http://networkedblogs.com/Mjgi9
They stay forever in our hearts.
Hugs,
Mariette

Art and Sand said...

When I began to read, I thought, "oh, good, someone else who works in a garage". But, your garage and mine are quite different. I am still in the Cs of Where Bloggers Create and so far yours is my favorite.

Now I have to get back to my garage to be creative.

Desires of the Heart said...

What a beautiful and well organized space to create to your heart's content in and so very organized. That is a great idea to raise your table with the bed risers! I like to work standing up too although less so these days. So, cozy and your painting is beautiful!! A clever idea to store bottles under the cake dome...I used to paint a lot and took lessons in the 70's and 80's, but haven't done as much in recent years. Thanks for sharing Celestina, sure miss your posts. Blessings, Linda

Kathy said...

I love how bright and airy your room is and envy those big windows and natural light. Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Celeste, it was so good to see you here today! You have such a lovely organized place to create! Maybe if I could get organized I would be inspired to create.
Have a lovely summer.

Something Special said...

Oh I think you would agree, that we have lots in common. I have used lots of neutrals and blacks in my studio and would love you to come visit. Your space is very beautiful for sure! Thanks for the tour!

Lavender Cottage said...

Hello Celestina, nice to visit with you again.
What I like best in your studio is the different work stations and how everything is organized with places to store all your creative items.
I think the room one creates in must inspire that person to do well, and yours definitely works for you.

I am so jealous I can't stand it, Celestina Marie! lol...not really- well, yes really but I am HAPPY for you that you have such a wonderful studio to work in.

Celestina, the light from all those windows in your studio is fabulous! I'm inspired by your lazy susan full of glitter. I totally love your fireplace heater... so cozy in the colder months. Thank you for letting me take a peek! :-)

ImagiMeri said...

Hi Celestina Marie,

What a lovely studio, thank you for sharing it with us. I love all your storage, and even though I have quite a bit, I always want more. I live in AZ where we're about 20 degrees hotter than you in the summer and there is so much dust. If you'd like a jolt of color, come visit mine...;o)

Hugs,
Meri

Graceful Rose said...

Celestina, thank you so much for visiting my new studio and your sweet comments. I do feel that we are sort of kindred spirits. You have such a sweet spirit about you, I know we would be great friends but for the distance. As for your studio, Wow! I have been so inspired you have so many pretty things. I never thought of using the cake cover for storing paint but I will be borrowing that idea from you to be sure. I love the time themed fabric too and many other items to numerous to mention.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Karen Valentine said...

Celeste I think I like your studio even better this year!! I adore the black and white. Toile is one of my favorite patterns! Thank you so much for breaking your hiatus and joining the party. It would not have been the same without you. :)
xo,
Karen

Diana Seal said...

Amazing studio, Celestina! Love your black and white color theme. Congratulations on your amazing art work, what an accomplishment!

I really like how you've combined streamlined B&W with all your vintage touches ~ I can just imagine how feel you free to create!

CATHY said...


I enjoyed peeking into your studio – love all the black and white. you have a lovely creative space. Cheers from Singapore.

fairyrocks said...

Wow your space sure inspires the mind. All that expanse of white perfectly orchestrated like a fine tuned violin. And you paint too {insert delighted sigh here} I so enjoyed these views of your space. I could gush on about every photo, that ceiling tile magnetic board and the crystal hanger...sweet bliss in itself. My youngest daughter loves black and white, I am pinning some of your images so she can view them too. Well done! Keep smiling and creating, and thanks for sharing

Kadee Willow said...

Your space truly reflects who you are.. a soft, feminine woman who's a true creative spirit! So many things caught my eye.. like the shakers filled with fairy dust and glitter (I, too, have done the same and love the mix of glass shakers with tarnished tops)..blending different sizes and shapes of furniture to create a unique wall unit for storage.. the tile on the easel... your homage to sweet Miss Beazy (right there with you on that one.. the loss of our four legged children is something that will always be a part of who we are. I miss my Miss Annie each and every day)... and the highlight of being photographed with Mrs. Bush ( I so miss them in the white house). Your space is delicious and I'm so thankful you shared it with us!

Patti said...

It has been such a delight to visit your craft space. It is truly a work of art; so pretty and creative. I loved so many things about your space!!!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I am in awe of your beautiful room. One thing that really stands out to me is the chandelier with the candle inside! It's so dainty and pretty. I am inspired and love your room and the beautiful art you create. Sweet hugs my friend! Thanks for sharing.

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Celestina Marie,

What a treat to come and visit you again, dear friend. I think of you often and had meant to email you, after you kindly visited me the other day.
Your studio is so special and loved seeing all the beautiful touches you have so lovingly created.
It is great to picture where you paint, work and where all the wonderful creations are done. Love that you have so many special mementos from your family, the laces from your Grandmother. Also lovely to see a tribute to dear Miss Beazy.
Thank you for your friendship dear friend and think of you often
Enjoy the new week
hugs
Carolyn

Red Rose Alley said...

Wow, Celestina, I think that may be the nicest creative space that I've seen! It is so organized and lovely. You know, I was drawn to it right away because of all the black and white, which is a favorite color combination of mine, and especially the damask design (not sure if that's how you spell it). I love the chair with the clocks on it, it's so cute! And Jess has one of those wooden people too, so that made me smile.

So glad that you posted, as I have missed you. You have really done a fabulous job organizig and decorating this little space of yours. It truly is something else.

Love,
~Sheri

Maureen said...

Anyway, hope you have a nice week and please come back soon!! Even if its post bi-weekly. You are missed in blogland.

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

Hello lovely Celeste,
I don't know even where to begin. Its all so beautiful. I love the chair, for sure and all the open space. You and Larry look gorgeous in your pictures and Of course Ms. B. Not to mention the White House invite. Love it. I'm sure Mrs. Bush was the perfect southern Lady. I've always liked her. She is so real.
I'm so glad you are staying with the toile. I love it and the lamp. I saw my shoe...LOL. It did fit right in. I love the little bust. I think I would like to make one. You have to tell me how.
Anyway, it all comes together just perfect. And you deserve to be in all the magazines.
May God Bless you my Dearest,
XXOO Marie Antoinette
PS:I'm feeling better

Tammy Woodcock said...

I love Ms.Beazy being in the room with you at all times. I have my girl with me as well. I love the duraflame but we call ours the Prayer Heater as the Boston Terriers flock to that heater when it's on. Love the jewelry bag idea, I never thought of that. Great for many things. I'm going to do that one for sure. I love how you go up, out and sideways and use every inch of your room. Well done Ms.C. Love and hugs & Happiness to you. Tammy

Laurie Ritchey said...

Celestina, It is wonderful to see this post from you, and it's fabulous to see so much of your creativity in one post. What an incredible and beautiful space you have. I almost think I might even be creative in a space like this! All of your special touches make it so feminine and inspiring. Of course, any room that includes toile is a winner in my book, and I adore your skirted table. I love the way you stacked odds and ends of furniture and made it feel and work like a storage cabinet. It always blows me away that even your storage areas look beautiful. I think I missed the post about painting your office chairs. Were they leather or fabric? I'm going to have to go back to find that post. I hope you are enjoying your break and accomplishing your goals. laurie

Awesome, beautiful, nothing more to add! You are so creative and inspiring! I love your creative space!
I have yet to start my china cabinet. I have been diagnosed with lumbar stenosis and it is very painful with the nerve pain. I am on steroids right now and start physical therapy next week. I hope to feel better with a little work. I want so much to get that cabinet painted!!! Nice to see this post, Celeste!

Celeste, I m in love with your studio, it is a thing of beauty. I especially love that clock fabric you have used on your chair, toooooooooo die for, I would love a bit of it for my journals.
I wanted to let you know we are out of our trailer and in our house, what a blessing. I am trying to find a place for everything but it is slow. I will do a blog when I get things arranged and have pic. take care my friend big hug Wanda

Selenarte Decoupage said...

Hello Celeste. Finally got here to see your space. I have delated my blog by mistake and had to put everything back manually.
First what attracted my attention is your gorgeous chair with vintage clocks pattern and beautiful French looking pillow on your office chair.
The glitter shakers are also absolutely fantastic.
Your entire space is so brite and full of creativity.Love visiting you.

Hi sweet Celeste!

Your studio is sooo gorgeous and every creators dream! Love your new sheer draperies in your space. It's so light and airy. Every crack and crevice is very functional and beautiful at the same time. I really like all the white you've used in the room. It makes a very calm palette to create in. Oh to be a tiny mouse and watch you while you paint your gorgeous roses! Thank you for sharing your awesome workroom with us!

Happy Anniversary sweet friends!!
Love and big hugs, Edie Marie

PS our patient has gone home and life is slowly getting back to normal. She starts more chemo in a week but is doing well. God is so Good!!

Dear Celeste,
It's been quite a while since I popped by, but what a beautiful post to return to. I love your black and white creative space, it just delightful, but then it's just what I have come to expect from you.
Lots of hugs,

Hello my sweet friend! Stopping by to ask you a question. Which template are you using for your blog? I updated this old artwork blog to a new template but I can't change out the post title color. I like your template.

Hope you are enjoying your vacation. I keep checking your shoppe :)

It all looks just wonderful! Very inspiring, right now I am hating my space because it is all jumbled and messy! Yours looks so inviting and neat!!

Aloha Celestina,
Your studio is absolutely lovely! I love your color scheme, the airiness, and coziness. Like you and your art, your space is beautiful.
I've participated in this blog party twice but have decided to sit this party out last year and this year. I'm just enjoying visiting everyone this year.
I've enjoyed the tour of your studio, thanks for sharing.

I know this is only about a year late, but I saw the tab in your header and had to come see. You have an amazing and beautiful space to work. I have a space about half that size, but it's all mine and I love it. I always love seeing how someone else has fixed up their creative space. Thanks for sharing yours.
