Our first submission...

I knew I could count on my friend Karin. In addition to being a great gal and one of my first blogger friends, she has a fantastic blog called Countryfolk Keepsakes.  Karin makes primitive art that is extremely cool.  She is also a collector of Americana. She is a true patriot and loves her country.  So with that little bit of background in place, here are a couple shots of where Karin creates...

Being a seamstress myself, I know for a fact that her studio won't stay this clean for long, but we'll cut her a break.

 Not only does she create beautiful art dolls and fabric sculptures, she is quite a do it yourself kind of gal. When you have the time, browse through some of her older posts to see what she has created, and you just might pick up on her love of nature and animals.  Her nickname is Peanut (though I'm not sure why) and she gets a kick out of my nickname of Peachy (my last name is Keene) and she has been known to tell a joke or two.  In other words, she is a hoot.

So once again, I want to thank Peanut for showing us her studio. Love you bunches, gal.

Wow! I wish my studio was that neat! I bet she cleaned up first and then took the photo! I would have....I will Have To!
I like her organization-- baskets are such a nice and cheap way to store it but see it! I would have those bottles all over! I bet her work is great! I don't do primitive but I appreciate it and will check out Peanut's site.

Awww, thanks for your kind words Peachy and Peri! ♥
Yep, my nose would start growing if I told you my studio is always this clean. In fact it's usually paint bottles all over and fabric strewn. But I had just painted that checkerboard floor and wanted photos of it.
This is a great blog Peachy!! Can't wait to see others. Keep 'em coming!

Loved it, need to spend more time there but the first thing I saw was her posting of the cartoon of the mayan calendar which is the source of much joking between my sister and I so I had to go and email the link to my sister. OK, now I'm going back. Love people who can laugh!

What a wonderful space! I love primitive style decor and Americana... this is a place I am envious of! It is way cleaner than my space too!
Thank you for sharing!!!
