First, before we get to the quilt cave, I have to share these photos of her house. It is gorgeous!
This is a window treatment she made for her powder room, which has an apron theme. These are all aprons!
There are little aprons hanging above the door.
There are apron quilts and little aprons hanging all over the room. Isn't this a cute powder room?
This gorgeous pie safe is in her foyer. Love!
I love this vignette. Everything is so charming.
She even puts old spools around her house plants!
Don't you love the little displays in the old sewing drawers?
None of us can resist a bunch of buttons.
I love the old tilt table and how she has the items displayed.
Carlene also collects old crocks.
The crocks were all over her dining room.
This is one of the cutest ideas. She and her husband, Donnie, took old yard sticks and added them to the side of her kitchen cabinets. CUTE!
This quilt hangs on the door on the way to the quilt cave.
This is the sign that greets you as you walk down the stairs.
Then another sign as you turn the bend.
First stop is this wonderful craft area.
I love how these ribbons are displayed.
I also love how she and Donnie took a piece from and old dresser mirror and used it as a quilt hanging display. Clever!
This is the bathroom in the quilt cave.
Adorable thimble collection.
I know you are loving this rug and want one. Carlene said it came from IKEA.
I really wanted to steal this chair. It looks so comfy and the perfect place to sit and stitch.
Sweet little baskets hanging beside the quilt.
All around the cave, Carlene has quilts displayed. (That kind of rhymes doesn't it? hee,hee,hee)
Here she is telling me about her laundry basket full of scraps, which was to die for!
Now isn't this a fabulous way to display your fabrics? LOVE! WANT!
Third quilt down. Too funny! ;)
She also had lots of little vignettes of antiques.
How about an old quilt in an old window?
One of my favorite things about her space was all the natural light. Sunlight beaming into a room makes me feel alive and inspired. I could work in her forever!
She has a lovely view into the backyard from her sewing table.
This fancy fish was on her design wall. She was working on this piece for part of Shannon's challenge. The eye is so cool!
Another little area for crafting.
Donnie made this piece. It is from an old sewing machine. He mounted it on a piece of wood to make a piece of art. Again, very clever!
Lastly, is this little diorama that someone found for Carlene in a thrift shop (I think). Isn't it cute. What a perfect home it has with her.
Carlene and Donnie invited me, Shannon and Qwen over for dinner when I got there on Friday night. It was such fun with good friends and delicious food.
Thank you Carlene! Big bunny hugs!
