From time to time I have made
often as a "giveaway" here on my blog.
I have just made another one which is going into
my etsy shop
I get so much pleasure from putting these together
as I get a chance to use some of these
gorgeous vintage laces, doilies
and embroidered tray cloths
which I have been collecting over the years.
Look at this gorgeous embroidered butterfly on this piece.
I have lined it with some very soft beige and white cotton with a
beautiful large flower printed over it.
and embellished it with some roses dyed from cheesecloth
and added layers of collaged
topped with a cameo and pearls.
and finally the back of the clutch
is embellished with
another dyed doiley
and it looks so pretty I think!
I have bordered the whole purse with some
very soft dyed cotton lace.
So if this appeals to you then go visit my Etsy
for more details.
Just thought I'd share some Summer love
with this most beautiful rose
growing happily in two places in our garden.
Isn't she a real winner?
