EDWARDIAN AGE INSPIRED EARRINGS

I found these beautiful buttons at home .. somehow reminded me of floral design on British pottery  from the Edwardian period ! I decided to use them to make earrings!
I added some pearls because they were widely used at that time

Marilyn Monroe on a gas station

Marilyn Monroe is one of my favorite divas from the past!I mean divas belong only to the past,today we have just girls that try to be something!
Well I was saying I like Marilyn Monroe, I have some kind of collection of objects with her figure on!I even have handcarechiefs and I start my day  drinking green tea from a Marilyn Monroe cup.
A few days ago I found this shopping PVC bag , one of those that are used for shopping at  grocery! I bought it of course (3euro)
I didn't like the simple black handles so I cut them!  I took an old white  belt with studs and put it in the place of the handles!I added a black cotton lining on the inside!
And here is my Marilyn Monroe bag ready for the summer ,summer trips and the beach!












By the way , I'm wearing : Polka dots shirt Nara Camicie,White jeans Miss Selfridge,Shoes Zara

EXTREME MAKEOVER


This is a different way to renew a pair of earrings you don't like! I had this simple metal earrings at home,never used them because I find them ugly and too ordinary! To make this operation I have used common sewing threads in shades of blue a chain and some decorations!
This are the pictures of how they were before and how they are now!
