This was a playing around a bit week. Along with my painting business, I have a home party business with my friend. At the last show we found these funky belt buckles. We had to order a few and see what we could do with them so ...
The one above had beautiful soft colors. I pulled out a few of those colors and combined ribbons to make the strap.
This one was really fun ... I made a strap with the solid black ribbon with a black gingham ribbon down the center. I then took bits and pieces of ribbons, buttons and trims and randomly attached them. It came out kind of wild but I think it's fun.
This one has the black and white floral ribbon with the black trim on the front. It is backed with the same ribbon but in orange and white.
I love this animal print ribbon ... I liked the way it looked with the buckle. I added a complimentary animal print for the loop and two suede flowers with pearl buttons.
I didn't forget about Cottage Flair this week. I found this very unusual piece a few weeks ago. Someone told me what it is called but I forgot. The front lifts down to a desk. I still need to add a nice knob ... It's hand painted and distressed. I love the detail on it and the beveled mirror. (Excuse the photos in my messy workshop. I haven't moved it to our store yet).
Thanks for visiting ...
