Hanky Panky

My Inspiration:

Bobbin Lace Hankerchief c. 1800  with fine white detailing.

The crown emblem potentially tells the story that it once belonged to a royal family.

My Creation:

Spring Buddies, c. 2011

What delicate details will you be working on today?

Have a good one :)  XO

You have that delicate touch - your lovely lacey flowers are so pretty!

I planted flowers today for clients, but they were not of the lacy variety. Usually they are, but I finally had a client tell me to go wild with the color, so I did! Bold and beautiful.

However, I need that gorgeous handkerchief to hide my hands. Even with gloves on, they are a fright.

Kelly- what are you planting for summer? And what IS that lovely lacy plant in your photo? You've got me!

Charlotta Ward said...

Amazing hankie! Can you imagine the things it would have experienced - tears, perfuming, waving, being dropped decadently on the floor to attract a handsome courtisan..! :)

I am painting today and will be adding fine details to a big family tree after this little 'blog break'..

Big hugs

Beautiful! This weekend I worked on a few garments for myself... two skirts and two tops. I had to make a quick stop at the fabric store on the way home to grab a couple zippers, of course I came away with an armload of more fabric :)

When does your shop open, darling?
