Where Bloggers Create 2012

Welcome to 
A Little Bit French's 

Come on in...the door is always open.

My work table is shabby and very much used.

Swinging around the room to my desk.
One day I will finally paint it.

The reason I love my desk, is this large desktop.
I shoot most of my photos on it.
I often wrap my customer's orders on this pull out shelf.

Who loves lace?

J'adore shabby bookcases,
especially $5 bookcases filled with lace.

My shabby lace station.

Perhaps you spotted my jewelry table.

I have the most fun here.

Who wouldn't have fun digging around 
jewelry pieces from then and now?

I find glass containers the most friendly
when creating and displaying jewelry.

My work table is always busy.

Shelves are a big part of any studio.

This high shelf stores many items above my work table.

Ever evolving displays

Purchases from France

Hooks are essential for hanging totes and tags.


Displaying gifts from friends

My religious vignettes keep me centered and peaceful.

Under my table are baskets of linen and lace.

Fabric pouches are stored in a 2 tiered French wire basket view from a shabby mirror.

I hope you've enjoyed this little studio tour.

Thank you so much Karen
for hosting such an incredible event.

Love to all, Rhonda

  38. Rhonda,

    I love your space! It is so soothing! My home is decorated very Americana. I want to tone down the red and the blue. Your blog just gave me some ideas. I will visit your Etsy shop too. Thank you!

  41. Love, Love, Love your studio, Rhonda! I see some things that I have {on a much smaller scale for my smaller room} that you have. The baskets of lace and trim; the glass containers holding pieces you can see. I love how you've used your wall space to hang things, as well as utilizing your furniture pieces. Everything that you show as supplies and embellishments makes for a gorgeous vignette on its own. Thanks for the tour!
