Hello my Lovelies finally finished the purse.
It's been a busy week putting my nest back together.
Above are a few photos of my process, I took
way too may :) for one post.
I used grey water color to paint the gessoed wallpaper.
It is tree bark, too kool, I added holes on the side to hold
the handle for it..
 I decided to make a faerie shop for
 the tiny purses in a tree hehehe.
The photo on the top right is how I braced the  piece
that hold them. The next photo, I painted tiny clothes
pegs with bronze nail polish to hold the purses.

Now they are all attached ready to slide inside..

I used 3 different kinds of twine to make the strap.

I also added some cardboard cover and painted
wallpaper to finish the bottom off...

I added the other half of the lace I cut off for the
inside now it matches it.
I had a lovely piece of wood for a perfect tiny door.
Do like the fancy door handle, Suzanne from Messy Jessie
had one like it on a door for this months calender, her is
STUNNING,  have a look, if you like HERE
Her calender on my desktop inspires me everyday..

A peak at the inside.....

Now I HAVE to start yes I'm saying it my Christmas
cards and gifts, I know some of you's have already
started, I'm always late :O)..
Oh and a lovely Lady from swimming gave me some
of her Mothers old jewelry, then asked if I could make
her a pair of earrings, yikes a jewelry maker I not..
I did manage to make a pair, from a piece of a bracelet
and a piece of broach. I warned her they might not be to
strong so maybe she could leave them in the box for
some treasured memories, she did say she loved them.
thanks goodness for that LOL... ( forgot to take pics AGAIN)
I will be around to visit as many of you as I can before
I start you know what :)..
Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you all have a
wonderful creative week..
NAMASTE !!!!

Hi Dianne! I've missed visiting your nest! It seems like ages since I had good old nosy around my dear Magpie Cousin's lovely creations! You are just so original, coz. What a treasure trove this post is! All those lovely little purses together now and that lovely little rustic door with the glittery embellishment! I have only just started preparing for Christmas with just one card, but I don't like starting too early.I have found some of my old fairy artwork which I'll post soon! I'm sure our little fairy friends would love a tree house like you've created. Have a lovely weekend, dear imaginative friend. Thank you for sharing your creative process! Julie Ann xx
