Hi all you Creative gals! My name is Eloise and I will be your host today. My small room is upstairs in my home. I call it my "PLAYROOM". It's pretty small but, it is jammed full of fun things to play with and what else? "CREATE"! I hope you have fun today! And don't forget to check out all the other party blogs (At My Desert Cottage for the list) I'll be party hopping too!! Oh, and thanks for stopping by...
Ok,here's the entrance! TA DA!!!
I made this inspiration board on my door. All the things I love!!
This is my desk,With must haves and pretties all around.
This is one of my Junk Babies I made. She holds all my vintage keys. Her name is "Fancy Faith".

Here are some of my doll heads that I use to make my "Junk Babies", I've sold them at a few shows!
And my motto"Lets Play"
Here are some views looking in!
My husband put together this hutch top on a vanity bottom to hold lots of supplies!
More cubbies in the hutch....
I love these satin glove boxes, they hold laces and buttons.
This cabinet holds more supplies and creative goodness!
And cute vintage table I use for storage on bottom and to assemble jewelery & paper goods!
Paper ready to use! Journals anyone??
Doll shelf, sooooo sweet!!
Here's another shelf by my desk.
Shelves are filled with storage jars.
I have this black file cabinet next to my table. It holds ribbons,charolettes & seam binding.
OK, are you ready for the BLING??? I keep my bling in silver trays,muffin tins,satin boxes,& jars. Remember, someone once said "you create what you see" that's why I keep everything out, where I can see it!
More sparkle! :)
Suitcases for storage? Who knew? They're the best & vintage too!
All my vintage photos stored in here.
This one is filled with old pattern tissue paper.

I know that storage is always a problem so, just be creative and use whatever you have. The more unique the better.
So, from my two manis Fifi and Mimi, we wish you a wonderful weekend filled with "Sweet Dreams".
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired someone!
