Welcome To My Inspiration Room

Dearest Friends,

The last room I am going to share from our little country cottage is my art room / guest room. 
It is my very favorite room in our little home.

It just recently started to come together and I love hiding away in there. 
It is where I blog, manage my shops, sew, create, write letters, make care packages, and a cozy spot for visiting friends and family.

It is my little hide away and I love to fill it with treasures that make me happy.

It houses my vintage treasures for the shop and my art supplies and sewing do dads.

Bettie inspires me daily to let my inner Fire Engine shine through.

I spend a lot of time looking around my room and thinking of all the amazing people who have made such an impact on my life. 
Each item has a story and a person attached to it. 
That inspires me so.

Today I plan on spending my day making sock monkeys and cutting out patterns for a special project I am working on in my little room.
Bono Baby loves to spend his afternoons in here, lounging in the sunshine.
We keep eachother company.

I made these bulliten boards from vintage frames that I picked up at a yard sale in California. 
I love how they turned out. 

Our guest bed is pretty simple and is usually covered with projects. 
I cleaned it off for your visit. 

Dan bought this vintage circus poster for me last weekend at The Possum Trot auction. 
I am in love love love with it. 

Thank you for visiting and thank you for inspiring me so. 
I adore you.

Fritzi Marie

p.s. You can visit our living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and Dan's office too. 
We love visitors.
