vintage pinks

There is an old fashioned glamour to pinks. I especially like those soft dusky pinks, parlour rose to orchard pink that conjure up an image of a bygone era. These pink Hydrangeas have an ink stained feel to them as their colour starts to fade.

I made this clutch purse using pink silk, vintage lace, buttons and pearls. I love the scalloped edge of the lace. I added a little lace handle so you can hang it on your wrist as your waiting for your cocktail....

It's photographed on a beautiful old letter.

a little bit of sketch book work...

Old tins are great way to store my sewing bits and pieces.

pink, pink, pink!
