Yard Sale
**Updated - if you are local and would like directions just send a note through the contact link at the site. Ruth is hooking you up! And. . .for those of you not local, in the spirit of my friend Donna Downey, I will be giving away a box or two on the blog next week!**
Do you ever just get to the point where you can't take the clutter anymore? Even though my attic is shut off, in the dark, away from everything else, I KNOW that you can't walk in there. It makes me sick to my stomach every time I open the door. Add to that the fact that I have been working on and off for over a month cleaning out my studio (and doing a little redecorating)! I didn't have the heart to even take the stuff upstairs. I just piled it in the guest bedroom contemplating what to do with it. So, in a final act of desperation, I placed an ad today for a sale Friday and Saturday. If you are local, I have tons of organizers and containers that I couldn't find room for in my office plus LOADS of supplies (rubber stamps, idea books, never opened embellishments, etc.). I was in one of those moods toward the end and started throwing everything in the box!
And speaking of my newly cleaned, re-organized studio, here are some photos. Notice I fixed my Welcome sign!


I got the cool scale on the center desk, the window over the door and the window along the back wall from Scarlet Scales in Franklin. Finally took the time to get them integrated. I will try to take some more close ups soon. . .

Pin It!

Thanks!

Kristina Proffitt said...

Oh Jenni! I would LOVE to come to your yard sale! I just moved back to the area and I NEED directions!! How do I get there from Hendersonville? ;)

Babs said...

Completely and totally gorgeous! Am seriously considering a major road trip to hit your Yard Sale.

Anilu Magloire said...

Jenni, that studio of yours should be featured in some decorating magazine...It's gorgeous, so light and fresh and upper east coast. I'm in love.
Please, pretty please, give us a little sneak peek at the aug kit... And some more details on how us out of towners can get some of that goodness...
WOOHOO!

Nita said...

Oh, absolutely gorgeous! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your studio!! I can totally relate to the yard sale scenario. I'm at that point, but here in FL, it's too darned hot to begin contemplating a yard sale! Maybe in another month or two (if my garage can last that long)! Good luck! Wish I lived closer, as I would definitely be at your sale!

Your studio is just gorgeous! Wish I was close by so I could attend your yard sale. I love yard sales. Have fun and enjoy your creative spot.

patti mullican said...

Would you be willing to do any presales for nonlocals if we pay shipping? If so, email me-I'm a subscriber so you should have my address.

BTW, love, love, love your studio. And love Franklin-next time we visit I'll know where to shop!

pat sloan said...

Wonderful studio...makes me want to redo mine!

Jill S said...

Jenni - Absolutely stunning. I love vintage and bling and using old and making new - too bad Oregon is a bit far to travel (Sad face) I'm curious though, when you scrap, where is it done? At the table with the scale? Would love to see a photo of the reverse side, where you store everything on your desk and how you lay it all out. Have fun this weekend!

lucinda said...

Oh how I wish I could come to your G sale. I usually hate g sales but your's sound divine!
LOVE the studio.
Won't you please share a full tour w/us?

Jenn from MA said...

I am in love...with your stuff. But alas, I am thousands of miles away. Sure hope I can win some stash or a little sumpin' sumpin' next week!! Good luck...I bet you will have an amazing turnout!

scrapcat said...

beautiful studio!
wish I could swing by, but I'm in Washington :(

Klala said...

Wow. Your studio looks exactally how it should...I love that it's like a page from a book. Lived in and intricate and beautiful. No generic Ikea storage units. Love it.

Jessica K. said...

That is soooo not fair. I think you need to take your *JB Junk* on the road! Would love to see what you are getting rid of....one's woman's junk...

Anonymous said...

My wife sent me here to look at pics of that incredible room of yours...and now I see a sale there this weekend. Hmmmm...maybe now would be a good time to take the family out of town before I end up with all your scrap crap! LOL -BVL

Vee said...

love it jenni!
looks awesome
wish i was local
would def. peep out your "junk"
i know there is gold in those boxes
lol

Barbara said...

This is the most beautiful studio I have ever seen, and it seems to match the picture I have of you so perfect ! Must be heaven to work and play in such an inspiring ambience.

tracy said...

Hmmm ... a roadtrip from VA sure sounds tempting! Add me to the list of those dying for a tour of your studio! (Am I the only one who keeps clicking on the photos, trying to make them larger?!)

Caron said...

Jenni,

I agree...I love your studio! If I didn't have a baby shower to go to tomorrow, I'd consider a road trip also. I would also love a sneak peak at the August Kits. I got to see the Scenic Route papers in "real life" the other day. The "Cape Town" papers looked like something you would pick. Just my guess. I'll be happy with any of them though. All your talk is getting me excited about the September kit too. Good luck with your garage sale. I just love when you clean house and de-clutter. It feels so good.

Have a Blessed Day - Caron

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh... that studio is gorgeous. It's so inviting... I just want to come in and sit down with you! :)

Darn all these miles between us... I would be at that sale in a heartbeat. Good luck with it!

Anonymous said...

Brilliant photos and can't wait to see more. I love how you mix antiques with modern pieces. You're an inspiration!

sarah green said...

I don't even live in the same country and I want to come to your yard sale.... I love the idea someone else had of a pre-sale for out of towners... Does your giveaway competition include us Kiwis????

Kristi H. said...

Jenni, your newly revamped studio is FABBY (as in fabulous)!!! I love it! Everything is so beautiful and functional at the same time. Showed my hubby and he said you must be a "dreamer" just like me. Of course I took that as a big compliment! :) I'm curious about the view from the other side too. Can you show us?

I would love to have some of your cast-offs as well! How can we out-of-towners get our hands on some? I don't know if I can wait for next week!

Got my kits in the mail the other day and can't wait to "get my hands dirty" with all that goodness! Thanks again!

valerie said...

I would love to come to your yard sale. Hooray for living in Nashville! :)

StaceyKingman said...

It is mean mean mean to post something like this because you KNOW that I am not local and would have to leave my house RIGHT NOW to get there for the sale and STILL all the best stuff would be gone and...well, isn't that enough?

Mean.

Oh, and your studio is a dream. It's beautiful. :) Thank you for sharing...I hope you plan to share more?

Jolene George said...

Oh my heck! Your room is jaw dropping to the floor gorgeous. I love the whole feeling to it. It's simply wonderful! It must make you smile just being in there.

Cheryl said...

OMG Jenny!!! Your studio is just breathtaking! You crack me up with your sign. Hopefully this time it will last for awhile. Wish I could come to your yard sale.

Pam said...

Love your studio, wish I was
local:(

Karlynn said...

AWESOME SPACE!!!! I have photos in my scrapbooking room of your space, I look at them and pretend I'm there!!!

The Ulmers said...

Thanks Jenni for letting us come by and check out the stuff last night! We love it all! Got home and started decorating and organizing ourselves! Let us watch the boys soon! We miss them!!!!

Kristi H. said...

Oooh... What about putting some of your oh-so-cool Jenni stuff on the "Cool Stuff" section for your very devoted fans to purchase first come, first serve? You have to know it would all be gone in less than a heartbeat!!! :)

Kristi H.

Chelle said...

Do you have anything left? Email me... eskimokisses@bellsouth.net

Christy said...

Wow! Your studio is GORGEOUS, Jenni!

valerie said...

What about the weather? Will there still be a sale even if it rains (which it has been doing all day, not that I'm complaining! It's hot here!)

Anonymous said...

wow, your studio is so perfect. I love everything about it. I can't wait to see up close pictures. I love using old antique and unusual things throughout my home and craft room and you have inspired me with some of your ideas already. One of the first things I look at on you Bowlin Studios site is the studio ideas to see what you come up with next. Just love it.

I wish I lived just a wee bit closer to go to your yard sale, but from Knoxville is just a little far to go. But I hope it is a successful sale!!

Take care and can't wait to hear what you are up to next!!

I had such a nice time talking with you for a bit on Saturday, Jenni! Thanks for the great deal on the scrapbook stuff! ;) You have a beautiful house! Hope to see you around!

Jeanette said...

Your studio is amazing, Jenni. The architectural interest, the colors, and the placement of all the things you are surrounded by is perfect. This is a room to treasure!!

Jana said...

Oh my word, I always love seeing pics of your creative space and it just keeps getting more & more dreamy! I swear that if I had that room in my home I would never leave it!!!! You are such an inspiration.

Jackie said...
