The Most Beautiful Song

I can't think of a song that touches me as much as the Hallelujah Song by Leonard Cohen--and there's a lot of music artists that apparently feel the same way--this song has been redone by so many of them!

You may be familiar with Rufus Wainwright's version in the Shrek Movie...and I think it's also really wonderful.

My Favorite !Bling! of all Time (number 4 of 5)

I think this trim bling is so cool! Not only is it pretty, but I took apart an entire vintage dress to get the colorful trim in the middle of the purse and the gold ball trim that is sewn vertically on the bag.

I think I like this so much because it has so much character...and I love the fact that no one will ever have a purse quite like this.

Sunday Brunch !

Yes, folks, these pictures are not from food at a restaurant, this is actually from my home.

These pictures are from Sunday, but looking at them I still salivate at the tasty brunch that my husband made! I am such a lucky girl!

I love my Neti!

No, not Yeti,

I never thought that I'd willingly pour salt water up my nose, but here I am loving it, (well, after it's done I'm loving it, anyway). Check it out if you have chronic sinusitis, allergies, etc., I feel like I can breath again!

My Favorite !Bling! of all Time (number 3 of 5)

This combination fabric and beads was one of the most popular photos and I think we'd ever taken--The colors remind me of a sunset, or a pretty "beach" drink.

And I think it's so cool that I didn't buy the beads and the fabric together, but look how perfect they meld.

My Favorite !Bling! of All Time (Number 2 of 5)

This is one of the cutest bags I've ever made and it's that bling thing. I mean, look at it!

I bought this necklace years ago and one day I noticed how well it went with this fabric.

Not only are the beads cute, but there's these wonderful animal cutouts that I sewed on either side of the purse. The other great thing about these beads are they are lightweight, so the purse doesn't fall.

Isn't this the custest?

My favorite !BLING! of all time (Number 1 of 5)

What makes my world turn? How about some really great bling!

I was looking at my bags, and I decided to rate 5 of my all time favorite blings on bags I've made. This wasn't easy, folks, but I think I've come up with an interesting assortment. (Something fun to do on a HOT summer weekend)

So, here is the first of five top blings on bags I've made:

1) Wow, as far as I was concerned, this bling was WOW! It's beautiful on its own, but coupled with the extremely soft, thick faux fur that feels like a plush bunny, this was definely a home run combination. As far as I'm concerned, this bling made this bag go from very nice to truly elegant. What do you think?

She'll Turn You Into a Toad
The Lovely Ms. Ghastlie

Meet Ms. Ghastlie, she's deciding if she should turn you into a turnip or snake.

I designed this bag myself and I'm pretty proud of it, it took me forever to make.  You'd think she'd be in a better mood, I hand sewed all sorted of goodies to her, like ruby red swarovski crysals, black beads, a feather and roses in her hair...even spiders.  Yes, I hand sewed spiders all around her.  She should be in seventh heaven.

The bag looks like it has spider legs all over it

Another Piggyback!

This is another Piggyback bag...this is a smaller version of the other tie-dye piggyback bag.

This is also more of a cute fabric combination, I think too. I love how these fabrics look together though, and isn't the lace at the bottom of the smaller bag adorable?

I lightly padded both these bags so they'll be comfortable to wear and shield your goodies. I've got this bag listed on my Gypsy Girl Fashions etsy shop.

New Design: Piggyback Bag!

I just came up with this new design and I really think it's cute. It's two bags, and one bag is smaller than the other and attaches to the larger bag.

The bags can be taken apart and look good worn by themselves. They can be worn cross body or on your shoulder.

And of course, they are very Dramatic!
