Revamping my craft room...a little facelift!!

I decided my craft/sewing room needed a little facelift and some much-needed reorganization. I also wanted to use my vintage garden collection to spruce things up a little. I spend quite a bit of time in there (when I'm not blogging!) and this collection always makes me smile...especially this handsome little guy...his patina is perfect! He's spent alot of time in the sun and the rain.

I love the color of this pot~a warm, rusty red.

This is the cupboard that now houses my collection. As you can see, it was nothin' but a HOT mess!! So I put all my fabric in totes in the closet, tore the fabric off the doors and.....

I like it soooo much better. I'm going to leave it this way for now. I thought about chicken wire, but didn't want to obscure the view.

This little wheelbarrow has such charming time-worn character.
Gotta love cloches!! I just ordered a bunch more in different sizes for the store. Can't wait to get them!!
This galvanized birdhouse was outside on my deck until the roof came off, now it's found it's way inside.

I mentioned this wonderful garden advertising sign in a previous post...well, needless to say I couldn't stop thinking about it and just had to have it. So my friend Katherine was going back there to pick something up and I asked her to buy it for me. Now it's mine and I LOVE IT!!! I would like to post some more pics of this room but I want to get it just right. I'm looking for a different chair for reading, sewing, and watching tv~ something vintage and wonderful!! If I wait long enough, Linda will bring something into the Red Rooster for me!!! Patience~~~
