Femme Fatale

Shiny black satin fabrics and sumptuous velvets, alongside floaty jet coloured ostrich plumes to conjure images of the femme fatal from art or literature.
Today, in between customers and sewing some more of my antique fabric handbags, I had a quick 'play' with some of my merchandise to create my homage to the enchantress! (Well, if you ignore that Mary Poppins style straw hat hanging from the mirror, that is! ;-))

  1. Hi Niki, glad the shop is doing well and that you are taking everything in your stride,your energy levels are amazing.
    I get really frustrated when I feel creative and have loads of ideas that I can't get going on 'cos work gets in the way! Alas a necessary chore to keep the roof over my head!
    I really like the wallpaper(?) in the sloping roof/alcove in the pic with your embroidered panel bag in it. Is it antique or nearly modern, is it available? I also like the background on your blog site, again the same question?

  6. I would LOVE my dressing table to look like that!


  7. Oh but I think I like the Mary Poppins hat the best (apart from the dressing table which is lovely). I believe it could belong to an enchantress. Picture those naughty twenties/thirties photos of nude ladies - if she was wearing nothing but the hat... xx


Thank you for finding the time to visit me...
