A Hint Of Beauty And A Hue Of Pink ..

Hello my dear friends,

the creation I am sharing with you today actually took a little time to come together believe it or not.
At first everything I tried just didn't look right to me until one evening, I just sat down and started 'playing around' and then all of the sudden it was done ... my newest creations.

Only a few days ago I was telling you how I was going back to my basics and today I am sharing something new. I had wanted to create a new nest since some time now and when my sari silk ribbon arrived I knew that I had the right material to work with combined with my hemp and a few other bits and pieces.

The finer shabby white silk was perfect ...

... and so was the ivory sari silk ribbon with all it's pulled threads and fluffy bits.

Pale pink satin became little flowers ... 

 ... with singed edges and little glass bead that live in their midst.

A special little touch ...

... my tiny little flowers which were made in Japan in the 1940's and now over 50 years old but still look like they just started to 'bloom' yesterday ~ so precious.

Vintage pearls ...

... were also a must for this creation.

And what is a nest ...

... without a few little eggs living in it?

 The nest themselves were crochet, quite simple but yet very pretty.

Hand in hand all these the other 'bits and pieces' they had become my newest creations.

'A Hint Of Beauty and A Hue Of Pink' ...
