Fashion......amazing, elegant, beautiful, quirky.

how lovely, how sweet, how utterly beautiful and breathtaking.....
these fashion creations are so inspiring to me. I have really been fascinated by fashion this last year and lately, I have found so many incredible pictures of beautiful fashion design.....just breathtakingly beautiful. I have even been thinking of designing some clothing myself. I love fabric, color, texture, design, line and the artistry of making a person look truely beautiful. I have never been very adept at using a pattern to sew; I seem to be too impatient to follow a pattern which probably isn't very professional, but I do feel I have a good sense of design and could make some really spectacular and very unique clothing. My husband and I were at an art show in Seattle one year with our Nature Art and someone told me I should be a fashion designer! She said I had a very good sense of style and could make beautiful clothes. I was so excited to have someone give me that kind of encouragement.....I've never forgotten that. It's amazing how even just one comment can sometimes give us the momentum to follow our dreams and our inklings to try something new.
Here is where I found some of the pictures above: (Fantastic websites and blogs!!!)

* A View To
* Daisy Pink Cupcake

I hope you are feeling and seeing the beauty in this life and taking time for yourself to create something of your soul and spirit to share with the world!!

Inside the Curious Menagerie of Art!!

This is exciting......walk through this curious place.....filled with beautiful, enchanting and inspiring works of art!!

Another Fairy House Creation displayed in our new Gallery!

This is another one of our wonderful, new little Fairy Houses that we created recently. We made it for a very nice lady in Ohio. (It is showing here in our new gallery "Marcel and Florette's Curious Menagerie"). It has so many beautiful little things in it.....a little stove in the kitchen with kettles and pots for cooking, paintings on the walls, little teapots and cups, a broom and a wheelbarrow; but the most adorable little creations, I thought, were the tiny little fairy dresses on the clothesline outside. The dresses even have little wings on them. I thought those were so cute!! (That was my husband's idea. We thought we would start making little fairy dresses to sell like these to put on our Etsy store!!)
The house is about 18" tall, is very detailed and unique and beautiful. If anyone is interested in having us make a similar Fairy House for them, let us know!! We love creating one-of-a-kind houses for people!! It's so much fun!!
Hope you are having a wonderful week, everyone!
