Gifts From Across The Miles

Lovely gifts from Dubai and my friend Xue. This item is an Obi Belt. It is fashioned after the belt used when wearing a Kimono. It is reversable and can be worn different ways. Please check out Xue's blog. She makes so many different things and is so talented.

This is my daughter Sylvia wearing the Obi. She wore it to work today and received many compliments on it.

The other items that I received were a zippered wristlet, two pouches for Kleenx, I can actually fit my cell phone in one and two hair scrunche's

My Find Of The Week

I found these at my favorite second hand/antique store.

I love the workmanship.

I couldn't resist these cup and saucer sets, I think they are fun and whimsical. What about you?

July Artful Bag Challenge

Here we are and it is July already and we have another bag challenge.

For this months challenge we were to take a bag that we either found in

one of our piles of bags or find one at the second hand store. I found

this one way back deep inside a bag of goodies marked for the second

hand store

Imagine that!

I give all the credit to Anna at Frostedpetunias for putting together this awesome

challenge. She is the hostess. Please run to her site and check out her bags and

that will point the way to other bags.

This is what I started with.

First I added an organza flower that I made, then I made a sculpy clay face that I molded.

I added some trim too.

I then stepped back and looked at what I made.

The bag already had a very long shoulder strap.

It was a great bag to play with.
