When I browse through many, many pages of beautiful creations at etsy, I keep wondering where those talented people get their inspiration. Do they find it from the books, magazines or movies? Or does it come from the nature: just seeing a beautiful flower, bird or a butterfly?
For me the old fabrics are an endless inspiration. I keep wandering around the thrift shops (all five of them that we have in my not-so-big hometown) to look and touch piles of fabrics. And sometimes, when I see a fabric or trim or even a button, certain idea pops into my mind.
On the other day I found this old table cloth and beautiful matching vintage trim and just saw what sort of purse those would make together. I hesitated for a second because I felt the colors were a bit Christmas-spirited but with white wool... I just had to give it a go even it is June. And I think I was right: it turned out beautiful (even I say so myself):
They got each other yesterday *sniff* and my coasters made it into this happy couples-treasury, most perfect day of all.
