Introductions were followed by a tour. Marsha, (aka the ranch queen of ranchqueenvintage) has made a wonderful home that includes a fabulous studio space. We started on the one side where she keeps and photos her vintage wardrobe.
Marsha worked as a costumer and wardrobe stylist for the film industry....I think that yellow cotton frock was worn by an extra in the movie "Driving Miss Daisy". Then we moved to the other studio side, where all of our jaws dropped...
This half of her studio included amazing built in shelves and cabinets to house all forms of
salvaged materials for her other endeavor, making one of a kind collectible art objects. Every
inch of that 30 foot space was a perfect vignette!
It was time for our lunch, so we crossed an airy breezeway that connected the studio to the main house. If you are a fan of original mid century architecture, you will drool over the photos of this 'California foothills modern'...but that is for part 2! I'll leave you with a teaser for the introductions to the rest of our party.
