Queen Be's Studio Tour and Great Giveaway!


Carol Richard-Berger, the talent behind Queen Be's Altered Needs has cleaned up her creative space and now has a lovely shabby-chic studio to play in!! Lucky for us, she's invited everyone in to take a look around. All photos in this post are courtesy of Carol.

What a cute way to store fabric!

For The Birds natural stone coasters from Queen Be on Etsy

I met Carol a few years ago while purchasing Christmas gifts from her online store, Queenbe.etsy.com (including these crow-themed stone coasters  - for similar ones click here). 

Vintage Mixed Media Bird Collage from QueenBe on Etsy

Since then I've enjoyed watching Carol's work evolve and love how she incorporates items from her nature and antiquing treasure hunts into her mixed media pieces.


Don't you just love this little chest? The different hardware on each drawer front adds so much character... and identifies the contents.

Great rubber stamp storage - keeps them at your fingertips and looks good. Love the antique typewriter too.


Guess what? This is just a small piece of Carol's Studio Tour. For may more photos of her wonder-filled space, visit her blog QueenBe's Altered Needs. CLICK HERE to enjoy the rest of this artist's room.
