Fall is here.......

Well, its still warm here in Texas, but I know Autumn is coming. The mornings are starting to hint of its arrival. Here are some of my new creations to herald the colors of Fall....

~A vintage fabric purse in a new design~



Look at that wonderful antique cameo with the tiny scene, as a button...

And one of my antique postcard transfer pillows with darling Victorian girls, just in time for Autumn with Halloween Greetings!

You can find all these items in my Ebay auctions this week!!

Ohhhh, I love the Autumn purses Amy! These are my favorite fabrics to sew with too, all the vintage florals in the darker richer colors are just my cup of tea! Beautiful work ... as always!

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
