Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette
'Let them Eat Cake'

Now I do so agree with this saying with a hot cup of tea, what better way to spend an afternoon.
Trying to concentrate on one collection at a time but hard to do as see some beautiful fabric, trim, paper or lace that would fit in with another idea, discipline should be the name of the game but love what I do so much that to put too many restrictions on myself is just not cricket. So slightly adrift a lavender giant peg, decorated with pansy print fabric and a handmade organza flower and leaves:

Now onto the main subject in hand Marie Anotonette, two let them eat cake cards, the images are printed onto photo paper, mounted onto Anna Griffin paper and embellished with flowers

Slightly different but love the monochromatic look, again the roses are printed onto photo paper, mounted onto vintage style paper, black and white organza bow with glitter flowers & butterfly.
Wild Rose Silk Necklace

The finished item now with amber seed beads wrapped around the silk with glass hearts at intervals, measures approx 26", very Marie

I am lucky enough to do what I love all day long, 24/7, 365 days a year, without my husband's support, Lee, this would not be possible. I know others are not as fortunate and have to go to work in the big wide world, so I am grateful for the life that we have,
Thank You Lee my best friend and most loyal supporter.

Monday Blog

Another week into the New Year, soon be thinking of Christmas in July, in between looking forward to the Spring these long dark days have gone on long enough, the Inspirativity event is in full swing, the hall is filling up with Artisans and Therapists, some wonderful displays expected.

Launched my Lavender Collection last week now for something a little different the

Marie Antoinette Collection

A much maligned and often misunderstood Queen of France, popularity in all things
Marie Antoinette has grown, maybe down to the film of the same name, she has now found
favour in many hearts across the world. Just a taster of things to come:

Working on a Marie Antoinette pillow with her dressed draped in organza and rose buds...

& back to more creative routes, a silk and organza necklace, the flowers are handmade with a pearl centre, love these colours and great fun to make and wear, corsages next....
