New month, new item!

Happy April!! This is my latest bag!

It's romantically called, 'My darling Clementine' which i think is very fitting. It reminds me of the clementine oranges i eat every day. I also asked Steve what to name the bag and the first thing out of his mouth was 'Clementine'....so there you have it!

I had this straw bag that was plain, and i decided to glue a bunch of cute appliques of a botanical theme. I used sequin to make a branch for the metal birdies.

I already had the two beaded yellow flowers and gold beaded leaves in my box of treasures so i added them with some little purple and pink flowers.

I then finished it off with a beaded sequined magenta butterfly and used tons of special jewelry glue to be sure it stuck very well. I tried other kinds of glue, so i had to find the right glue to work. They are stuck on good now! See a description of the bag here.

and it's now available for sale in my shop!! Hurrah for spring!!

We have to reserve a date for our TO outing! April is very busy for me, I will have visitors from France but May seems good if you're up for it!
