When I don't feel particularly well, I go inward...
Sometimes to heal my body....
Other times to heal my soul.
This week was a little of both.
I really enjoy sewing and creating during this time
And can actually get a lot done which always makes me feel much better.
This little handbag is a tea dyed version of the one I recently had featured in
Somerset Haute Handbags.
I adore the black velvet rose which adds wonderful depth to the lace.
The inside reminds me a little of a venus fly trap,
But since there is no actual closure for the bag,
This works well to keep your things inside.
One of my newest designs....
Made simply from a silk tufted jaboe curtain
With gorgeous antique French lace.
I like the way it hangs, is a lot more durable than you would think,
And holds a ton of stuff.
I also almost finished this special order sweater.
Just a few more rows of ribbon and lace.
It will be leaving here today.....
And this is the label they are all sold under.......
But I've been thinking I would like a "name" instead of an "emotion"
Associated with my line of clothing.......
I really like "Nettie Jane" as it was my Grandmother's name.
I wish I had wonderful stories to tell about her, but she died when I was very young.
I remember her being an incredibly strong willed woman and very mysterioius to me.
It just looks a little "commercial" to me.
So I tried this one.....
Jury is still out on whether I will change or not.
Thanks for stopping by today....
You know I love it when you come.
If this is your first time here and you choose to follow....
Please know I always follow back :)
