Stuff I've been working on...

This is a little purse I made for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday... She loves purses and owls!

I've also been upcycling vintage and thrifted evenin bags...

This one is a vintage black glitter bag that I added a guinea feather fan and a large red mum to. I put a vintage rhinestone earring in the center of the mum...  Bold, yet elegant don't you think?

Heres a thrifted bag in gold. I've added satiny flowers, a bit of vintage lace and a vintage pearl earring... Subtley elegant for a bride's mother, perhaps?

A silver vintage bag here that I added a pearl and bugle bead floral spray to... Wouldn't this be beautiful for a bride?

I bought these for my daughter's bridesmaids and of course had to keep one. It is egglpant colored bugle beads and I've added a lovely golden peony and put one of my grandmother's vintage earrings in the center. Another bold statement... Maybe for a formal outdoor dinner party...

And this thrifted cutie just wasn't blingy enough! So I added glitter, a vintage earring and two satin roses to a green paper flower... What a lovely little flower girl purse!

I just love purses! I've gotten a few patterns to make some, as well! I'll post when I get some done! Thanks for visiting! It's so good to be back!

Email Me Button?

 I would like to use this for my email button. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get it to work. Any suggestions?  Thanks!

ps: It's good to be back!

I'm Baaaack!

Hopefully, I was able to unuspend my blog and you are now able to read this... I'll post some new stuff I've been working on soon... I've been trying with the tea business, but it hasn't gone as I had hoped... So I guess I'll continue my full time artist status, as I am still unemployed. I've missed you all and can't wait to get back into some real artblogging!
