In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

MORE Life at the Shed...

A gorgeous, mosaic-like bug under the edge of an old green planter...

Busy nuthatches with their metallic "beep" sounds...

Wild honeysuckle may be a wicked invasive, but the birds adore it...which, of course, is WHY it's so successful...

I love sunny days when I can sit on the deck and journal and sketch...

The black one is a Stilman& Birn journal that's a delight to write in, the other's one of my hand-bound artists' journals

Soaking up the D-vitamins! 

And then to work, doing videos by the big window.  On sunny days, the light is sufficient, on cloudier ones I used the photo-floods...and Joseph is building me a bigger table to do demos on!  Hooray...


  1. Fabulous photographs!
    Looks warmer up there than here . . . north winds are crazy here, even turning over a wrought iron settee and blowing it across our porch.

  2. Even your bug is colorful! LOL! ;)

  3. Thank you both! Vicky, it was warmer when I took the picture, yep. It's about 35 right now and I'm definitely NOT barefoot!

  4. Amazing - I must follow your shed blog; a subject about which I often write in various magazines, so I shall follow yours with great interest.

  5. Terrific, Ann...I've always loved sheds and little cabins and cottages, so I am delighted we built this last year!
