Nesting...

First, a quick thank you to all of the well wishers who left such sweet comments on my previous post--yes, we've moved into our new place and are settling in! It's wonderful! I've been unpacking, organizing, creating, and getting centered these past few weeks. 
Here is a little peek at my new studio space...
Above is a still life on my desk...a vintage tin that was my grandmother's, spice bottles full of buttons and a landscape painting I did. I will be painting the walls soon now that the weather is warming up and the windows can be opened--the pre-existing wallpaper is a bit dark and busy! 
A view of my desk--a little untidy with a work in progress :) The room gets really nice natural light...A mannequin is in the corner (I used that for the project for Courtney Love, that's why it's all padded) and my favorite parasol...
And here is a shelf in my studio with three of my collections: vintage Oriental dolls, vintage tins, and New York souvenirs. I put finished earrings on the mug rack :)
Another view of my desk with the essentials--beads, tea, and a cd player for music!

And last week after days and days of rain and snow, look what appeared outside our front door...
The largest rainbow I've ever seen, in a perfect arch across the sky!
