Introducing: My Office

 My great and wonderful designer who came all the way from Clovis, CA to help me with my office.  I think McKenzie did a wonderful job and I would put her up against any HGTV designer any day.
 That is a handmade pillow case made by my great, great grandmother.

 The painting of the lady was my inspiration piece for the room.  It was painted by Sandy Gagon.

 Those two dolls on either side of the standing dolls, were dolls my mother played with.
 This is my cutting table.  There are unfinished projects in the baskets underneath that I need to get to.
 That quilt top draped over a box of batting, was made by my grandmother.
My sewing table.  My sewing machine's name is Elizabeth.  I didn't name her that.  That was the name of the machine when I got it.   See that little chest of drawers?  I am trying to find something to replace it with.  No luck yet.  If anyone knows of a good place, let me know.

I hope you all enjoyed the tour of my office.  I love it and I am so glad McKenzie came up to help me with it.

I didn't realize McKenzie does decorating! I like the green color on your walls. And I didn't realize you have that many dolls...what a collection!

How fun to have your own decorator :o) Great work place and works in progress with all your sewing. I really like that you have so many special things from your mom and grandmother.

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you for your sweet comment about my grandbaby :o)

Thanks for stopping by. Your office is wonderful. So neat and everything has a place. My home should look so good, but when you have a husband that thinks your his private maid sometimes grrrrrrrrrr that boils my blood. Simply wonderful for you. What a nice friend. Thanks for sharing.

Your office turned out so cool. I love the Tiffany lamp. Your doll collection is such a treasure and it looks like you have some special heirlooms too. Elizabeth looks happy in her new spot! You will get lots of inspiration in your office! Yay, Karen!

The dolls are adorable, Karen. Well, with an office as gorgeous as that, work wouldn't seem like a "chore" at all. =) This an amazing tour, and I enjoyed every nook and cranny of your home office.
