a layered lace bag

I am off to France with Anna and 12 others for a country workshop
I will return with news and hopefully some ideas to inspire
Packing my kit with needles and thread, glue sticks and scissors
also a gift bag for each of my fellow travelers
I will be in touch soon ,so for now  a last little look

It is a wrap

lots of lace and textiles make a nifty journal
So happy to locate a mother of pearl buckle
Tied around the book with old eyelet lace
I added a gentle rose to the cover

vintage photo added to a grunge tag

bits of fragrance

love the fragrance of Lavender
It seems to go with lace
the Victorians knew all about the combo.
Helps on the pillow at night to give a good nights sleep

Not sharing, ....... textile heart

for fun, 
a sulky girl photo on a vintage textile heart

 in a silly mood
my actual state, I must add.
so here is some trivia from my hands

Crazy quilted box

 hand embroidery and crazy quilting are perfect for me
have snatches of time usually, so can create pieces as I go and then can leave for a while
 love color and always want to find more ways to combine looks
My inspiration can come form a book, a picture or a thought
This box is inspired by the Opera
Phantom is playing in Honolulu soon.
 Box is about 6 x 8 inches
Trims are antique, I know!

magnificent Mona Brooch

Mona Lisa brooch 
made this as one of a museum series it is a form of Paper mache that I make for my art pins
Very hard and durable
Fun brooches to wear and take on a trip. 
No diamonds to get lost or taken from a room
Mona sits on some antique lace
