More Spring Romance

Bonjour my friends! Behind the scenes I have been working quite a bit in my sewing lab :) Mixing tea and rit dyes, soaking up all the lace and gauze for these sweet fun custom pieces. I just love how everything looks after a good soak in tea, then the dryer with lavender dryer sheets , when the fabric and lace come out its like they aged 50 years or more! My little Time machine :) All three of these items were a custom order for one sweet lady, now I have one more bag to finish this week for my sweet friend Sandy. Her bag is turning out soooo lovely , I saved some special lace for it. I will be sure to give you all a sneek peek after she sees it. The hat is so special, in person it's just ahhhh.... the last piece is a wrap, I call it the Parisian Gypsy , another piece that came out of the time machine:) Well, besides being sick from the pollen , any allergy sufferers out there? It was never a problem in my younger days but ever since I hit 40 a few years back I have inherited all these weird ailments ! Oh well, til next time, thanks again for all the sweet comments I love to hear from you all!! Hugs, Kimberly

Couture 2010

So fancy right, Couture, something about that word is so rich and basically means its out of my price range :) I was so stunned at this piece, I worked on it little by little and it just came to life. Its so Royal yet tattered and worn, elegant old Battenberg lace ,soft wrinkled gauze, tea stained linen. The back is equally beautiful. Its what you would call a duster. Layer it over bloomers, jeans and boots, ohhh I have chills :) Its a beautiful art piece, not to toot my own horn, I just love it. hanks for looking today, birds are chirping in the background it's a lovely day. Sweet day to you all, hugs, Kimberly

Romantic Lace

Hi Friends! Last week I was visiting my family, my aunt Betsy came down from Rhode Island where I was born,by the way, lol I hadn't seen her in 11 years! She is still beautiful. Betsy was a beautiful Ballerina, she still carries herself as if she is still wearing those toe shoes! We had so much fun. When I returned went straight to my sewing room to work on some custom orders, below are a few I finished, they turned out lovely. Were getting ready to stock our website Paris for spring summer. So many projects in the works in the way of designs. I have truly enjoyed designing and sewing these pieces using my collection of laces and linens. Thanks so much for stopping by, and thank you for the sweet comments, they truly keep me going! Love, Kimberly
