Organizing with tags and labels in the sewing room

I am continuing to organize my  sewing room
I printed off some gorgeous little cards that were kindly
posted  for everyone to use by
 Astrid Maclean at the website below

I glued them onto some card and cut them out

I think they are so pretty
I wrapped my heirloom cotton laces around them

Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique
posted some labels for our use too
aren't they pretty
I printed them off too

Elizabeth from The Porcelain Rose
Makes the most gorgeously pretty tags
I used them to label the storage boxes

I covered this ugly brown box with rose patterned paper

 I glued on one of The Porcelain  Roses cards (that Elizabeth 
kindly included in my order as a gift)
 and some lace 
and buttons, added a few hearts

                                                            another pretty storage box

Labels for the magazine holders,also from The Porcelain Rose
They are actually tags,but I just turned them sideways and 
tied the little string into a bow.

Now I think all the sewing room clean up is just about complete.
Maybe just a bit of tweaking in the wardrobes. where I hang all the Christening Gowns.

I will be visiting the linky parties on my side bar this week

I am going to enjoy this lovely weather we are finally getting in the mid 20's celcius Yehhhh.

Love being cool.:)

I am so envious! Don't you want to come clean out and organize my sewing room? It's so junked up, I can hardly get in. Such inspiration!
Thank you for joining Country Whites Weekend! We have some wonderful posts and yours was certainly one of them! Be sure and check back this Friday for the features!
Blessings from the Farmhouse,

Jeanette Ann, you have made your sewing storage so fun with all of the wonderful labels and tags. Your collection of laces is wonderful! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

What beautiful organization!! I love the tags with the lace around them. Everything looks so pretty. I tried to follow through Google, but so far I'm unable to, so I'm following through EMail until I can get through Google.

Have a lovely week, and thanks so much for your visit!

Hi Jeanette, I stopped by from Cuddlebug Cuties Linky Party. I must say you have a scrumptiosly vintage blog! Love it and I'm a huge fan of Astrid's as well. I don't sew so I admire people who can and your christening dresses are gorgeous! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start.

Hi Jeanette Ann! I found those tags and labels really beautiful, and gave me a lot of inspiring ideas for my own "sewing corner" (I can´t afford a sewing ROOM really, but I´m building a little thing that will work well for me anyway...) Thanks once again for visiting my blog and for your encouraging comments, it´s really heartwarming to be in touch with such lovely people despite the distance... so please be welcome anytime!
