Vintage Finds

Treasures from a local antique shop...

On top of my washing machine....


A few antique bars of Octagon laundry soap...
in the perfect enamelware bowl.



An ornate antique inkwell...


Now to find an old pen to dip in that inkwell.

I love to write with calligraphy pens and ink
in the old style.

Tonight I am writing a letter to a old friend.
Writing by the light of an oil lamp transports
me to another time and place.

I forgot to mention that it's going to be time for the 2nd annual "Where Bloggers Create" party.

If you haven't read Karen's post about it yet...here's the link:

I participated last year although my studio was in progress so this year will be so different. It was a lot of fun traveling around to see everyone's creative space.

Hope you join in for it..you have a lovely studio.

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥
