April fashion sketch wallpaper

(click here to upload or print out a copy of the April wallpaper
Baby doll dresses, with all the trimmings like sweet hand smocking and little puff sleeves seem just right for April frolics. Sketched here with crazy patterned stockings, and chunky Mary Janes they conjure up the feelings of the sweet innocence of the 60s with gushing pink, fuchsia and purple, flower power fun! Enjoy a gorgeous April.

Bandanna and rhinestones

Pretty rhinestone jewelry passed from my Great Aunt Rose to my Mom and now to me, are so gorgeous - and wishing to wear them with a casual style that suits today, that's not retro - inspired me to edge another scarf, as I continue to update my scarf drawer with decorative crocheted edgings... ...this time, it's a cotton bandanna edged with a sparkly crocheted frill, worn with a black leather biker jacket and all the rhinestone glitter.

Spring's early blooms

Suddenly the home is full with pretty blooms on the inside and fresh buds sprouting on the outside. Then my travels bring me half way around the globe, to an unexpected warm sunny day in the northwest, where scattered patches of snow are unexpectedly mixed with the smells of spring around the corner. Everyone falls under the spell of the loveliness of it all.
