Congratulations









I want to soak up each of these images! I love the work spaces and the rooms with the bright white walls especially. I have a folder full of studio pictures that I use for dreaming up my ideal studio space. I think it'll have dark wood, white walls, big windows, and lots of red and gold accent colors. *sighs* Someday! My work situation seems to calming down, thank you all for your encouragment and understanding. It's always a bit of a balancing act when dealing with difficult personalities rather than a black and white situation. Does that make sense?

I want to annouce that Caroline from the charming blog of Absolutely Unique won the 200th post give-away! Congratulations! You've been such an incredible support and encouragement to me at Red Otter. Thank you, thank you! I'll be contacting you for contact information ASAP :)

Dreamy! I love the space in photo number two. There is just something about weathered wood & that barn feel that I just drool over.

Oh and don't worry about your dream office space. Someday it will come true!!

You have such a gift for finding amazing photos on the web! These are so inspiring and lovely.

Glad to hear your work situation is better -- those can be so stressful!

out of all of these pics, i love that picture of the book with the pencil-drawn heart in it the most. i'm sure i've mentioned it before, but i have a thing for art that includes words.

(which is prolly why i'm so appreciative of kal barteski's work!)

jewels, if you ever get a workspace like that you'd better make room for me. cause i'm a-comin over!

... ps i flew over madison on the way back from calgary, and thought of you. <3

Caroline @ Absolutely Unique said...

Oh my dearest Julia! I'm so so so happy! I've never received a give-away before! I've been following your blog because I love your work and I've found that we have a lot in common. Although we have never met, I feel as though we are old friends already. It's really a great honor for me to receive this give-away. Thank you so much, darling!

Sometimes, I think if I could just put my crap in the right order someone might think it beautiful. I had an aunt who could do this to her kitchen, only I never figured out how she did it.

Will you please, please decorate my work space?!! In fact, maybe this is a good idea to just open it up and make it a contest. So many lovely posts here! Hope your work load and stresses ease up soon!
