Bringing Back the Brooch

BBB

I always fall for the gorgeous brooches during my treasure hunting adventures but then I end up talking myself out of bringing them home knowing I am not really a brooch wearing gal.

Well guess what??? New day…New dawn!

In fact I am a brooch wearing gal…just in a modified way. In a statement necklace kind of way.

Here is my latest fashion DIY project. Take one spectacular brooch and one complimentary necklace and you have just created a unique one of a kind “So You” statement necklace.

Voila!

Pattern Pattern everywhere…I couldn’t help but be inspired by all of this amazingness that surrounded me on vacay. From the stenciled path to the architectural elements to the bold colorful moments in the textiles..it was EVERYWHERE!

Whenever I return from a trip I always bring back an idea, a food or a new practice that I can incorporate into my world. The idea I need to re-create is the brilliant, beautiful bohemian stenciled cement path…LOVE!

absolutely inspired,

April Showers…

April Showers bring May Flowers and not just in the garden but also by way of these happy sweet optimistic yarn art masterpieces.

I am a super fan of all fibers arts…macrame, latch hook, crochet, needlepoint, string art and yarn art…you name the fiber art and I love it!

Something else I also love is the idea of how someone took the time and effort to craft, frame and decorate their homes with these fantastical fiber works of art.¬†When I come upon one of these treasures I always try to imagine who made it and what’s the story behind it. Sometimes I’m even lucky enough to actually get the background on the piece like I did with the top photo which is my latest score from Brimfield. I bought it from a really cool cat Charlie whose wife Cindy made this back in 1974 when they were in college at Millersville University and now it’s mine to continue the story…

Flower Power,
