Ring Around My Rosies

I love roses, I always  wanted a red rose ring,  but never came across one, when I  got into ring making that was the first thing that came to mind. These are the a few that I wear most often, and they are incredibly comfortable. These rings have become very popular with my loved ones,  and I finally have my red rose ring I always wanted.

 I really love this stocking for my sister in law,Its not really visible but there is gold metallic that lines the paisley print, The blue is so bright against the black background it looks almost like it is black lighted.  It is fully lined in purple rose fabric with french seams. This stocking is closest to the decor I saw in my fever dream, in a two story brownstone boutique.

Lilacs and Dots Christmas stocking

Continuing my non traditional Christmas stockings inspired by a vivid fever dream, is my lilac and dot stocking for my sister in law, I love lilacs, they don’t grow well where I live now, but growing up, they would tower above me sending out its sweet scent in every direction. I do have a small pink lilac in a container in my large south facing window that is doing quite well, and look forward to its blooms in the spring.

This stocking is fully lined with french seams, and has a ribbon loop. I really love mixing dots and floral, I think it came out well. I have ten stockings I have finished sewing,  3 more to go.

Silk Poppy ,Hops and Feather Cascade Wedding Bouquet

I was recently married to the man of my dreams. I made the crazy decision to try to make everything, I mostly succeeded.  I made myself this bouquet after not finding anything vintage enough to go with my 1920-30s look. I never intended on the hops being part of it but  I couldn’t find any foliage I liked better so here it is; dusky purple Poppies, green and white hops, green ranunculus,  cream and green  love lies bleeding and cream feathers.  I covered the holder in a soft moss before adding the flowers so it looks fuller. I really loved how it turned out . My husband ( who is a big H.P Lovecraft fan) told me it looked Cthulhu-ey. while I no longer have my bouquet, I sent it up to be with my ailing aunt who couldn’t make it, it made me so happy, in fact i was informed by my husband that when I stepped out, he heard a gasp followed by “Oh my God look at the bouquet.”
