ArteStrasse - Brescia (3)

I'm back from the ArteStrasse fair in Brescia, I'm so tired!

The day has been pretty tiring but satisfiyng. I got lots of appreciation and support from perfect strangers and it's been as amazing as conforting! So, thanks very much to all of you passer-byes and a special mention endowed with a big hug goes to Elena and Miriam that kindly invited me at their stand and made it possible for me to be gifted with the appreciation and support I received!

Here are some pictures for you "nosy parkers" to see :)

ArteStrasse - Brescia

Elena and Miriam are two girls fond for the handmaking - cute and colorful paper bracelets, elegant hardstone pendants and naturally-looking wooden earrings. 
You can find them and their worthy creations on Sunday, September 25th at the ArteStrasse fair in via Carlo Cattaneo, Brescia

Chances are to see me there too...! 
I've been invited by the girls, so I'm working hard to craft a bag for the occasion, I hope to succeed in the venture! 

Soon you'll know the leading theme of the idea..tomorrow's September 21st, Fall and its golden colors are coming...

Inspiring Flowers (3) - Done!

Flowerly inspired by Zara's TRF S/S '10 collection colors and patterns, this pretty shoulder bag is suitable both for your daily routine and for special occasions. Nice would result matching it with a beige dress or coat, and even better would be a flower-themed hair slide!

The outer part is made entirely of tough printed cotton fabric, while the lining is made of a gentle beige-colored synthetic material. 

Coordinated to the print, there are a particular old rose decorative plastic button on the front and a functional zipper on the inside. The shoulder strap in hardware is adjustable, as you can easily take how many bows you want off the chain.

Soon loads of pictures and further details of the item!
