A very warm welcome to 'Imagination Lane'!

Please come in and visit a while. Get cozy in your favourite chair...have a sweet tea close at hand...and enjoy...

For the month of May, I posted a photo of my studio each day on Facebook. When I learned of this blog party, I was all set to join in the festivities! If you scroll down through the posts, you'll find 31 days of pictures displayed.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm off to visit your blog now...I'm sure it will be inspiring!

Many thanks to Karen Valentine of My Desert Cottage for hosting this grand affair. Her studio is amazing!

It's easy to be inspired in such a beautiful room Lynette...thanks for having me over :)

Lynette, the new look of your site is wonderful. Makes me frustrated with the limited options on my site, may have to do something about it. Your site is such a feast for the eyes and the imagination. You have been hugely entertaining this past month! Shine on. Great work!

Hi Lynette

Thanks for popping in at my blog post and inviting me over here to yours. There is a lot of stuff in your photos that shows me you and I have a ton in common. I love old cameras, and typewriters too. I have a beautiful old Underwood that I did not photograph for my post. I also love old vehicle tins but simply adored your book style tins! FABULOUS! I also saw a SARK plaque on your wall... I just purchased one of her books that I read many years ago for my Mum. Buttons in jars and books galore on those shelves... I found myself trying to scan down further in many of your photos so I could see MORE! It was really fun visiting your special space. I thank you for the invitation and for sharing your space!

Amber Leilani said...

your blog is lovely and your zoe is divine! our patches is, alas, not elusive...she is clever, spoiled, and a little mad. but we love her anyway.
thanks again for inviting me over.

amusements said...

Hello Lynette!!! Your photos are WONDERFUL of your studio and all of your fabulous collections.... makes a girl so envious~~~ I would love to be set loose in your artist's lair to play! (I have cats who seem to think they are an intregal part of the 'creative process'and seem to want to "help" me with all I try to make). What fun to see a bit of your 'inner sanctum.' Thank you for letting us peek inside your atelier!

I love the "What do you love to do?" quote! Inspiring.

Liz-AnnasOnTheLake said...

Lynette, I love all the little vignettes from your studio. What a wonderful tour! You have a lovely blog 'voice' and I look forward to a return visit. I am also a huge fan of second hand scavenging and will be spending the first week of July in Edmonton with my sister doing just that. Thanks for visiting my blog, too!

Hi Lynette,

If I could choose just one photo, it would have to be the one of the little chairs. I am partial to them myself. Any particular place you have acquired them? Is that little wrought iron looking one really metal or plastic? So many questions eh? Not really on topic...

So, I'll just say that there's lot to see here and all of it just really fascinating!

I have to look and look at each photo. Thanks for sharing your month's worth. Nice way to accomplish the party post!

Lynn Richards said...

Oh, Lynette, we are going to become great friends, I can all ready tell!!!! Your sweet comments left me so very encouraged- I would love, LOVE it if you kept coming back to visit Blueskies.....
Your studio? To die for. Too much stuff? No way! I'm thinking each piece is a treasure to you and you have so skillfully stored everything!
Too many books? Heavens, no!

Jeniffer said...

Lynette,
Thank you for sharing your space with us. I was so inspired by the quote you have on your wall... "ask yourself what you love to do and why aren't you doing it." I think it's time for me to stop blog hopping for now and go paint!!!
Blessings,
Jeniffer

Kit said...

Oh my! I just love all your collections! When you visited me you said you had to take a good look at all my stuff. I can see why. We love the same sort of stuff.....LOL I too have teddy bear friends, I love sewing notions and tins. Your place is awesome. I am thrilled to have you follow me and I will do the same. I can't wait to come back! Kit

My Arts Desire said...

What a wonderful place you have to create! The large window in the one photo looks like it brings a lot of great natural light into the area. I LOVE any room that is filled with books. Then when you add all your other " vintage wonderfuls" to the mix, it makes it a perfect room! Xo, Sue

Katsui Jewelry said...

You have a wonderful spot!I adore your many collections...oh, my, so many things I love,too, and so many things I didn't even realize I loved...for instance, the book tins and the double decker buses! I love your primers, I, too. have a primer collection and the first I got was from a swap partner in Canada. The purses are delightful...just do whimsical and just for the fun of it...I love it.Your mannequin is great and I love the glass covered box for artist supplies. Maybe I just need to start storing my treasure in my room. It makes your space so homey!

My daughter and I have had a blog for three months and have been doing jewelry together for fifteen years. Come and stop by, if you would like. We also love to work with lot of other things, among them, vintage paper craft (me), vintage fashion (her) and both of us love estate sales and life.

Thanks for the nice peek! I loved peeking at your collections and am anxious to look at other things on your blog.

Wow! So many treasures! So much to touch, see and do! You have so many wonderful collections. Your room is cozy and just delightful!
