Love your style and plan on working with some of your fabrics in the very near future! Thanks for sharing and if you have a minute check out my blog


Love that cake plate - is it old or new? I bought a clear glass one very similar at Target this holiday season. It is in my studio too - a ribbon "cake" is a great idea!


Such a pretty space! I know I have that CD somewhere, maybe listening to it will motivate me to get my studio in shape!!


I love EVERYTHING about this room, show us more! (pretty please *smile*)

How dreamy. I'd never get anything done if this was my creative space - I'd be in a deep, deep motionless trance from all the prettiness.


OOh - love this - it looks like a magazine spread!! That dresser is gorgeous!


So fresh and lovely! Your creativity will sparkle in there!! Mine is a complete mess....and so is my mind...I think I'll have to do a little spring cleaning myself ;-)


hey tanya! I was just listening to The Tide is High today and commented to my coworker how much I love that song. Blondie is awesome. As is your gorgeous studio, lucky!!


Oh! The colours! Just beautiful.

Present Past Collection

Oooh, just lovely! The colors are so bright and cheery, just like rainbow sherbet! What an inspiring place to create.


What a lovely, airy place to work and play. I love your place! I am looking for some of your green and white polka dots......


I finally cleaned mine too! I can move without almost killing myself. Do you have any ideas for redecorating mine? You could come and do it for (with) me!


Looks gorgeous, clean, and bright! I'll be working on my space this weekend. You have provided good motivation.


Beautifully clean! I love it when I clean my studio, so sad that it gets messy again so quick!


I need to put a pretty dress on my dressform too! I would also like to know if the cake plate is old or's beautiful, I need one!!


How absolutely lovely!

I don't know where you live but the beadboard and that little mirror says "south" to me. Oh my! I love the pictures and I'm thinking of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings home in Florida. The dress form is beautiful, I'm so needing one myself.


What lovely pictures! They are so full of the joy of sunshine and happy colors.


Absolutely gorgeous! I love the wonderful natural light streaming in the windows. It's the perfect backdrop for your things.


What an inspiring space!


White/pink/black & polka dots - the perfect combination. Thanks for the studio peek!


Such happy coming here! I've been cleaning too...feels good! Enjoy your fresh, clean start! jw


your space is so great.

Lovely lovely photos! Congrats on your wonderful year!



Tanya, your studio is so pretty. I love the slatted wood on the walls and how everything is painted white. It's so beautiful. I also love your mannequin and the white lights, as well as the paper lantern. The dresses that I have seen on your mannequin as I've gone through each and every post are so beautiful. You are so talented. I also absolutely love the skirts you have made for your daughter. Gosh, I wish I could just hang out with you and see you wonderful home and studio. And now I totally sound like a scary stalker. Sorry. Not meaning it in a stalkerish way, more like a "I'm totally 100% normal and think you are neat" kind of way. Your fabrics are so beautiful. Gee, could I be more of a gusher? And then, as if finding your blog and seeing you in "Romantic Homes" wasn't enough, I saw that my little blog was actually in your "Blogs to Visit" side bar. I was floored. I felt like I was on a cloud. Thanks for making my night. I'll be back regularly to check in and see what you've been creating.
