wanna little peak???

i've had a lot of you asking to see my studio...well, here's s little sneak peak...

the front ;)

looking in from the front door

view from standing in the front

looking in from the back hallway

right side wall

front left side corner...isn't the plaster/brick combo so cool?!?!

today i put the second coat of sealer on the floor. i'm putting a hi-gloss "wet look" sealer on the floor. the floor had 4 different tiles on it....crazy...i i pulled up some of the yucky 70ish looking tile and left the fabulous little dice now, half the floor is concrete and the other is the little dice tile...the floor is SO random, and i wanted to give it a little definition, so yesterday i painted a gray stripe on the floor where the tile met the concrete..the tiny little dice tiles met the concrete in  a weird uneven line, so i painted the stripe, then put the first coat of sealer on.
after the second coat dries that i just put on, i will be ready to start moving in my goods! i'm so excited about this new space!!!! today is a dreary, cloudy day, and look at all of the natural light that still floods in! the big overgrown butterfly bushes in the front are getting tamed or removed to be replanted...not sure which one yet, but then i'm excited to do a little planting in the front beds...
this happy little studio will suit me just fine...i can't wait to nestle in!
hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

time is flying by and is about 3 weeks away!!! last night i loaded up my pallette...yes i said pallette, no more loading down my truck like the beverly hillbillies this year, yes, thanks to my amazing husband, lily pottery kicked it up a notch and we're shipping our load of displays and stuff to market via freight. i'm so excited, this means, i just show up in Atlanta, and all my stuff will be waiting for me, in my booth, on the pallette...SO much easier than what i did last year...HUGE thanks and lots of hugs Isaiah for helping me do this!!!
i didn't have my good camera, so i snapped a few from my phone in the warehouse last night (sorry for the bad quality, but ya get the idea)...i'm really excited!
