some months ago I had seen this beautiful pink sari silk ribbon and just I had to buy it without really knowing how I was going to use it for.
I put it into a basket in my studio and left it there for weeks before deciding what to do with it in the end. I had gone with a thought I had had a while ago, that it might be neat to turn this beautiful silk ribbon into a few new sari silk ribbon and hemp nests and that I would go all the way with the theme of 'pinkness'.
I made many singed edge roses of different shades of pinks and types of fabrics ...
... and two nests using the pink sari silk ribbon and one from a beautiful light off-white sari silk.
I even painted some of the wooden eggs ...
... a pale pink color ~like I said I thought I would go all the way with the theme of 'pinkness'.
This whole idea with the pink thing started after last Easter when I had bought candy covered chocolate eggs and there were some in this beautiful pale pink color which looked so lovely and that was it ...
... they idea of 'going pink' and these are those chocolate eggs, I have saved them to inspire me and now they have.
The nests are not quite finished just yet. I am still working on the overall look but I am hoping to have them completed soon when I will of course share them with all you lovely bloggers here on Todolwen.
On another note ...
... it seems that whenever I try and get some photos taken, which I normally do on my worktable, one of our cats feels the need to be close to me which I love so much. This time it was our cat Iris. I must say that she was so nice to wait until I was done this time with taking my photographs before she made herself comfortable on my worktable and fell asleep for a few hours.
Isn't she just so sweet?!
She is like a little black furry angel sleeping so peacefully. I could sit and just watch her for hours like this but unfortunately I don't have the time to do so ~ too many things I want to create. I will sit for a little bit the next time though and just enjoy it.
It was so nice of you to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen today and I hope you enjoyed it.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
