i had an old, torn silk flower from a long forgotten purse pin.
i took some tulle, rhinestones, sequins, tons of thread and a hairpin from my wedding, and turned it into a new hair-elastic/corsage. i am unsure whether i will ever wear it, having never received an invite to a red carpet event, but i do know i love to look at it.
then i threaded some beautiful purple yarn, hooked two pearl necklaces to it, and attached silver ribbons to either side.
this may be worn tomorrow to work, with a skirt. i admit i always wear skirts.
i have plans for some more changes, but am unsure what to put my hands on next. yet i do know pearls, ribbon and tulle are my favorite mediums to use, and they all help me show my girlishness.
my last bit is not a craft, but a picture i painted after a May trip back to Utah. i saw a pink tulip in my parent's yard, and couldn't resist taking several pictures of it.
tulips have always been my favorites, and lilacs. i have a lovely photo i have yet to paint of a beautiful bush in bloom from the very same yard. maybe this autumn, when my fondness pulls me to publish it in acrylics, i will have another painting to post.
