Birthday Brosage

July 30, 2010

I recently created this brosage (brooch + corsage) for my friend Judy R’s birthday.  I started with a vintage gardenia millinery flower, and just started sewing on elements in creams and whites.  Her color palette.  My favorite component is the gauzy stuff – strips torn from a first aid kit gauze bandage roll.  I added a pin back so she can attach it to a purse, or a pillow, or add a tie to it to adorn some element in her house decor.  I can’t wait for my next invite to her lovely and serene home to see how she has used it.


Junk Masterpiece

July 23, 2010

This is my idea of a junk masterpiece!  I had watched my friend, Lisa R, collect some of these pieces, heard about her vision, and even got to see photographs of her work of art.  But seeing it in person made me realize what a stunning statement it makes.  It is captivating to study and appreciate each component.  It mimics Victorian gingerbread trims.  Only way better.

Absolutely a spectacular creation!

Wonderful Window

A wonderful window display I saw on our recent adventure to New York City.  This is the swanky Stella McCartney shop in the Meatpacking District.  Expensive shoes and purses sitting on simple cardboard boxes.
