The Sugar Shak

it's been pain-staking to make all my stuff fit in this, my little "studio", but it has been a labor of love. everytime i walk into my space, i melt into a world of confection that delights my senses. i've finally kissed my old friend, restraint, adieu.
nothing is ever finished, is it? maybe it is for some, but not when you're a collector. i do not have a store but i find myself re-arranging and re-doing vignettes and corners... just to accommodate the new stuff.
i'm guessing all of you are like this too. i just cannot own enough tattered lace, frilly petticoats, crusty crosses, glass glitter, time-worn pearls... you get the idea.
i've been wanting to purchase "interior alchemy". thought i might learn some schemes from a master. anyone familiar with rebecca purcell's book. the out-ofprint book has become a cult classic and costs over $1oo! ouch!
trinket boxes i've been making...


finally getting back to jewelry making. YAY! :) cheers!
my happy end

Hi, Jessica,
I have the vintage tin with the diamonds on it, in the 6th picture. I turned it into a match box and keep it next to my candles.
Enjoyed the pictures.
