Have I Told You I Love Pink and Green

Pink and green, I SO love these two colors together. Totally girly, a little bit, dare I say..."preppy". When I do my Consignment shopping, looking for wool sweaters to felt. I am always drawn to those colors. Mom and I went last Thursday and I bought a bunch of goodies. Can't wait to felt them and start creating. Here are some pics of my latest. I must confess, it took me a long time to find the combination of items I was looking for. The bag is named, "A Girl In Paris" this was my inspiration for the bag. It is also my challenge piece for the Fashion Design and Lifestyle Etsy street team January challenge. Our challenge was to create an Altered Couture piece. Inspired by the Somerset magazines. I love Haute Handbags, but then again I buy all of there mags :)So here she is, some of the vintage pieces were purchased in Lambertville from Elizabeth and others from some vintage Etsy shops. All in all she was a joy to create. And those stunning handles came from a lovely lady all the way in Thailand. Enjoy! Oh, ps~ I had to throw in a picture of my mannequin Bella in version 2 of the I Love pink scarf, it was just such a pretty picture!
