Vintage Fabric

This is a vintage piece of fabric that I'm holding on to, waiting for the right project to come along.

It's a beautiful, sturdy cotton canvas in the most outrageous autumn colours and dates from the 1970s.

It's a vivid combination of brown, orange, black, burnt orange, brick red, muted light green and some white.

It sure is eye-catching!

And I love the close-ups.

Pinata Party!

I've been making these colourful pinatas for birthday parties lately. 
They're always such a hit with the children - as well as the adults. 
And they're such fun to make!

Fashion Ads of the 20th Century

365 days of Fashion Ads of the 20th century by Taschen. This book is full of wonderful colourful fashion from the 1900s through to -and including- the 1990s.

Each double page has a full-page ad on one side and a witty quote pertaining to fashion on the other.

It's a fun book to look through on a rainy day - which certainly fits this season- or go through for inspiration.

Still Summer

The weather is wonderful. The sun is shining and it's nice and hot. 
No need to say goodbye to summer just yet.

Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980). The star painter of the interwar years aka la belle Polonaise.

This is her self portrait titled Autoportrait or Tamara in the Green Bugatti (1929).
Art deco at its finest.

Octagonal Green Floral Origami Bag

This is the reverse side of this green floral octagonal bag.
The fabric used is a fairly heavyweight cotton with discreet green stripes in an almost sage hue, with superimposed floral details in a more vivid green.

You can see the floral fabric of the other side peeking through in this picture.
