Boho Accessorizing
June 13, 2013

I will be showing my boho upcycled accessories at “The Gables” in Springfield this weekend…weather permitting, Friday and Saturday. Here are a couple of boho headbands–these two have been sold, but I will have more at the show. (One of a kind, of course :)  AND I will have upcycled bags, cuffs and choker/necklaces.



Bridesmaid Accessories
June 5, 2013

I like the trend in bridesmaid attire, where each attendant wears the style of dress that is flattering to her, colors are the same, but style is different. One-of-kind accessorizing is a perfect fit for this popular trend.



More Quirkiness
June 1, 2013

I’m making progress . Here are a couple of necklaces pictured with bags made in the same style of colorful quirkiness.





Colorful Quirkiness

Mulling around a new idea–thinking about adding quirky necklace creations to my collection of bags, headbands and cuffs. Upcycled, that is and created with fabric snippets,vintage buttons and coated striped colored wire. I think I like the light summery fun look of this one.

Whether it be for walking the dog or pushing a stroller, a crossbody style bag comes in handy for carrying your keys and phone/camera…who knows when you might see a photo worthy sight while out for a stroll? It’s not only functional, but cute….we think Max and Molly are too!
