My creative space today

Look at these little treasures,
new Chinese turquoise,
beautiful vintage buttons (I love the mustard color!)
pretty brass cabochons
antiqued golden filigree beads

I enjoyed bringing them together in this moodboard or still life,
(what a stunning colorcombo: turquoise and mustard, isn' it?)
but soon they will be used in new creations :-)

Do you remember that I love putting my scissors into vintage handbags, to cut little flowers out of it?
I found this leather bag a while ago at the thrift shop (only 1 Euro) , It's a gorgeous blue,
but back home I could not tear it apart into pieces, in fact it's perfect to use as it is!

So I decided to cut some leftovers of leather and tried these new forms of petals!

These below are already in my shop:

mustard and turquoise - eternal love combo!

I love that bag - and I am happy, that it is still alive :-)))

opps...I made a little mistake in my previous post.

I can picture those lovely flowers adorning your vintage purse. The necklaces are amazing as well!

Mustard, my kind of colour for gray winter.
