T Stands for busy and a new series

 Hi Everyone!

I hope all of you had a great weekend. I was busy but my weekend was quite enjoyable.
I finished another shrunken head that I am very pleased with. I will show you on Friday Face OFF. I got my house cleaned for winter. I still have  2 walls to wash and then I am done. 
Several of you have asked to see my art room. Well it's a mess because I am creating but here it is in all it's glory. LOL


 The door is usually open

 As I walk in

 Facing where I walk in

 Going right around the room

 Yes, I am packed in here even with all the wall shelves.

 However, I know where every little thing is.


 This is where magic happens. Even have herbs from the garden hanging

 The top shelves are things I don't use very often. Bottom shelves are things I use most days.

  The room is not very big. Mr. M. built the wall shelves when we first moved in here. I don't know what I would do with out them.
I am watching brilliant series on Prime called, "The man in the high castle" 
Written by Philip E Dick if you have ever read his books you know how his brain works. The movie, from one of his books, is a story about how life would be if hitler won the war. It is so well done with a resistance twist. I can't stop watching it. 

I am linking up with Bluebeard and Elizabeth for the T-Party. To get into this party I have to show some sort of dink. Well because I am writing this Monday night, Samhain, I had to go with these drinks.

That's if for now.

Good evening Nicole-enjoyed the tour of your art room-I have loads of shelving and cabinets too, makes it easier to find things too.
Happy Halloween and Happy T

I think we watched "Man in the High Castle" a while back -- the series dates to 2015. I love that we can discover a series that started long ago and then watch the whole thing, which is what we are doing with the Icelandic series "Trapped" -- another good one.

Your workroom looks amazingly well organized and neat -- thanks for sharing.

best... mae at

Your workrooms are so artist like. Cultured and special. The witches' pics are fascinating.

Your art room is in that state of delightful disarray that brands it with your own personality and that's exactly how it should be. Many great creations have come out of there with more to follow.

Your room looks so tidy, I wouldn't like to show mine. The Man in the High Castle is good, I liked it, too. Happy T Day, Valerie

I need a workroom with all those shelves! I have lots of "stuff" but little storage area.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Your art room is terrific! "The Man in the High Castle" is on my "to watch" list! Glad to hear you like it!

Christine said...

Lovely art room!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I always say if you can't go out, go up, and that is what you have done in that well organized craft studio. Thanks for sharing it.

I haven't seen the movie, but I have read almost everything Phillip K Dick has written. My favorite is "Do androids dream of electric sheep." It was later turned into Bladerunner for the movie. I have read the book, "Man in the High Castle." I have no idea how closely it matches the film.

What a fun way to celebrate T and honor Halloween, too. Thanks for sharing your art room, your film, and your drink related images iwth us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.

Sounds like you've been busy cleaning your house and wow, your craft room is amazing! I loved the tour, it looks like a wonderful place to get creative 😊. Loving all your Halloween creations too! Happy T Day wishes! Hugs Jo x

Divers and Sundry said...

I'm impressed you devote a room to your art. I've never done enough art to warrant it, but it's cool to see what you've done with the space :)

I haven't read that book or seen the movie, mainly because I tend to avoid alternative histories, but I should give this a try.

I want to join that last group for tea :) Happy T Tuesday!

Boa tarde minha querida amiga Nicole. Desejo um excelente mês de novembro.

Darla said...

I enjoyed the tour through your art room. You have some nice light there which is so important. Your witchy drinks look great.

Carola Bartz said...

You have a wonderful art room and I don't think it's messy at all - it's a plce where beautiful things are being created. Thank you for sharing it with us. - We started watching "The Man in the High Castle" a couple years ago, but we couldn't stand watching it. As Germans we might have a different perception of Hitler - such a horrible horrible man and his helpers and enablers.

CJ Kennedy said...

Your art room is so neat and tidy. We loved The Man in the High Castle. So well done. Happy T Day

Rita said...

Oh, I forgot about The Man In High Castle! I have one more season to watch, I think.
My studio is packed, too--but I know where (almost) everything is. ;)

My name is Erika. said...

I love seeing your art room Nicole. Mine is small too, and like you, I love my shelves. I wish I had more-smile. I like how it is bright and has lots of light. I hope you're having a great T day. hugs-Erika

Happy Tea Day,

Loved seeing your art room, it looks very organised and you can even see the floor lol can't see much of my floor atm haha. I saw season one of Man in the High Castle and liked it but then there was such a wait till season 2 and I'd forgotten what happened so I think I would have to rewatch s1 again first. Happy T Day!

Cathy Kennedy said...


Your art room doesn't look messy. It looks quite organized if you ask me. :) Thanks for sharing the Prime series you're currently watching. I'm glad Hitler didn't win. Have a good week, my dear!
