New Vignette Area in my Studio at Piddlestixs!
New Area in my Studio 11
Everyday I try to come up with enchanting ideas to enhance my store and my studio space at the store, which has become my creative sanctuary, the place where I create and get inspired in. My studio in case you didn't know yet is located on the former stage of a playhouse/theater from the turn of the century in a 150 year old building located in Historic Lafayette, NJ, in the back of my store at Piddlestixs.New Area in my Studio 12New Area in my Studio 14New Area in my Studio 16New Area in my Studio 10New Area in my Studio 17
I comb flea markets, auctions, rummage sales, yard/garage sales, salvage yards, and dumpsters (lol) to find pieces for my studio and the store, always on the hunt for a glass cabinet, shelving or prop to decorate my store with. I have a total obsession with vintage stamp trays, cigar boxes, old fruit crates and trunks. I love apothecary glass, rusty books and of course dolls, especially my beloved cupies, kewpies, celluloids and charlottes, with a love affair of anything circus, carnival or storybook.New Area in my Studio 5

If its wizards, witches, fairies, mermaids or odd, I'm going to love it, the mystery behind these icons and folklore legends has always fascinated me from a young age, the works I do revolve around them and anything of magical enchantment. I'm always on a mission to find things which can bring me to a magical world and allow for my imagination to soar. The hardest part is doing this on a budget as furniture can be pricey, that is why I comb thrifty locations for furniture, and have wonderful friends and customers who bestow goodies onto me, lol.New Area in my Studio 4New Area in my StudioNew Area in my Studio 2
A few weeks ago I enjoyed the town clean up week, where I found a few amazing tables, shelves, hutch, stamper trays, cigar boxes and fun pieces to re-purpose in my store, plus a friend recently gave me a box of dolls, some broken parts and TLC dolls, which I fixed and added to my studio, especially loved my cupies I received, I see some new molds in the works, lol.New Area in my Studio 18New Area in my Studio 17New Area in my Studio 20
In this post today, I wanted to share with you some of the newest areas of my studio, hope it brings you some inspiration and some magic, it doesn't take a whole lot of money to create a magical workspace, just a bit of creativity and some imagination!

If you are in the area, come on my store for a visit!
