My Creative Space - Mother-Daughter Accessories

This is what's on my work table today:

  These are part of the mummy-daughter accessories I've started making.

This red mix is actualy quite striking.
(Unfortunately these pictures do not accurately capture the colours.)

The layers of organza, tulle and viscose include burgundy, flame, orange, hot pink, fuschia, neon pink and a dark rose.

They are quite large, about 5.5in/14cm for the mummy one and 4in/10cm for the daughter one.

Now they need some leaves and they'll be ready....

I'm afraid I've neglected the I spy... series (a weekly post of one of my favourite things of the week).
But to make up for it, I've got a great little etsy shop that caught my eye the other day.

  This week, I spy.......HodgePodgeArts
Elegant vintage-inspired buttons, brooches and decorative ceramics.

Tickle Me Tuesdays - The Blues

This week's Tickle Me Tuesday finds are a selection of the most wonderful blue items. Blue is my colour this week and I just can't seem to get enough of it.

To see more Tuesday selections or to join in with your very own, go to Yes,Teacher!

EuropeanStreetTeam Challenge:Picnic

The latest challenge of the European Street Team was hosted by Estella of Star Of The East, who also got to choose the theme: picnic. Fun!

 This is my entry for it -in by the skin of my teeth!

It's already in the shop, which is definately a record for me, but that's probably just because it's a pre-requisite that the item is listed before it's entered in the challenge.....
