A Little Creativity….Work Zone

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” ~Author Unknown

Since I’m waiting for my book to come in so I can do my last Jewelry History post, I thought I would give you a peek inside Nostalgic Summers “World Headquarters.” Actually…my spare room turned into a work space.

Now I have to tell you I am a bit organization obsessive! I love when everything is neat, organized and color coordinated. But I do admit when creativity strikes I throw all that to the wind.

So here’s a look inside my creative space.
Here’s my desk, an old enamel top table, which I am IN LOVE with! Above it is my inspiration/memory board.

This is my computer desk, also a wonderful enamel top table. I painted the bottom red originally it was industrial gray.

On top is a great old chippy blue cubby (cupboard?), and the white container on top is my puppy treat jar. (they work hard and need treat breaks).

My “helpers,” Audrey and Lily.

These next few pictures are of my props, jewelry display pieces and my great patriotic collection.

I hope you enjoyed the peek inside. I would love to hear where you spend your creative time!

Happy Halloween!
AND….I promise A Little Jewelry History, Part Five will be next!


  1. LOVE the inspirational memory board! Such a fab idea, I'm going out this weekend on a hunt for one! :D

  2. I am totally jealous of your organized work area! I love to be super-organized, color coordinated and all of that...But lately I feel like everything's been a mess! You've inspired me to do some cleaning...

  4. I love your space! I also have a space dedicated to creating, but it is not nearly as organized as yours!

  5. I love your workspace and your little helpers! I'm doing a blog post coming on inspiration boards and I'd like to include yours. Let me know if it's something you're interested in.
