a little sneak peek

Here's a little sneak peek at my studio! I have a couple more things I want to get done before I reveal it all. 
I wanted to start with one of the corners of the room. In the smaller room I didn't have any room for this lady, I was so excited to have her in this larger room.  I found her a couple of years ago at a sale. She was marked $5 which I knew was a steal. But I already had one from my boss at the florist I worked at. So I was talking it over with my Mom, and the lady said. how about $3? How could I say no to that price?

So there she is dressed up in my handmade lace rose corsages, a vintage measuring tape and some antique keys.  Behind is a vintage replica of a Vogue cover my hubby got me for my birthday years ago.
Hope you enjoyed this small little sneak peek..... more to come!!!

night out on the town

This weekend the hubby and I are off to New York City with my Sister in law and her husband to visit our friend who lives in Brooklyn.  I've been making many different purses for the local shops I sell in. So I finally took the time to make myself one. 

This fabric has been one of my big sellers with my small clutch purses I make.  I also had this beautiful royal blue satin that I thought would look great with the black and white fabric.  In my bits and baubles drawer I found this lonely earring, I took the clip off and make into a pin that I can take on and off. I can't wait to use in the city!

I do custom orders if anyone is interested in this clutch.
