White Ivory Organza Flower Hair Clips

This palest ivory organza is a joy to work with. I tried adding some smokey grey faceted beads in with the rhinestones and I like the extra depth they add.

Sea Rock Doodles

Ah, glorious summer time!

Time to go to the beach, feel the heat of the sun on your (pasty, white) skin... cool down in the refreshing, salty water.....

and find smooth, sun-kissed sea rocks to doodle on to your heart's content.

I find the ones with the holes in them extra special. 

They have the most utterly fascinating organic shapes.

The holes also make them meant for hanging.

When I have enough of these, I have a special project in mind for them.

Summer Reading List

aka Wishful Thinking....

This stack of books has been patiently waiting to be read for a long time so I've decided to call it my summer reading list and see how that fares.....

I just realized that I've actually read two of these -a long time ago- and am looking forward to re-reading them.

Has anyone read James M. Cain?
This is my very first attempt and I don't know what to expect. 
I ordered these after seeing the Mildred Pierce short series with Kate Winslet and I can't recomend that highly enough.

I'm very excited to read these two books as well, by Edward Rutherfurd -an amazing author.
I've actually read London -years ago- and it's one of those books that you always remember.
A true masterpiece.
Has anyone read it?

What's on your summer reading list?

Natural Flower Dyeing

While browsing through Pinterest the other day, a bunch of images showing flower-dyed fabric caught my attention. This has been on my to-do list for a while, but as that list is pretty much endless, I have yet to make a dent in it and have yet to try flower-dyeing fabric.
I was so captivated by these images and their promise that I started a new Pinterest board with all kinds of natural dyeing techniques and methods.

Pastels In Progress

These are bunch of organza flowers all finished and waiting to be turned into pastel, summery wrist cuffs for M's bridesmaids...

I confess, love them exactly as they are...

But I also know how much I'll love them with white tulle leaves, lace and ribbon when they are finished and ready to be shipped.

I'll be sure and take a picture to show....

Which colour do you prefer?

Etsy Favourites - Grey Whispers

Sterling Silver Dragonfly Earrings

Silver Grey Feathers

Dandelion Art Print

Surreal Ocean Photography

Ethereal Loosely HandKnit Newborn Wrap

It's been a while since my last Etsy Favourites post, I know....
Time is still constantly, relentlessly ticking at my heels.
However, today's permeating misty grey was so very inspiring that it resulted in this colourless but thoroughly dreamy collection.
