Many of you have visited before during Where Bloggers Create 2012, 2011 and 2010. There haven't been any dramatic changes to my room so I threw open the drawers and boxes and took a LOT of close-ups this year so you can dive in and rummage around. For any of you visiting for the first time, welcome and please buckle your seat for the loooong ride through my own personal amusement park!
Since I took so many photos I will try to keep my blabbering to a minimum, although we all know I am mostly made of lace and dust and blab and buttons! If you make it to the end I have a special surprise for you. If you see something you like, please feel free to pin and I would love it if you would follow me on Pinterest so I can follow you and we can share the inspiration.
