Every gray cloud has pink lining


Today the skies are bluer than blue, and just a few clouds here and there. Those pretty clouds inspired me to use a piece of pink&gray tweed I found while thrifting a few days ago. It all started with that pretty fabric, a piece of gray cloud-trim from my stash and a keyring was born:

With little pink birdie and the sun peaking behind the cloud. It was followed by a little pouch...

That little pink tweet is singing in the rain! And to complete it all (you know me and my matchy-matchy condition) I still made a totebag:

It's was made with a pink birdie and big leaf under a rainy cloud.

Every gray cloud has pink lining!

Happy Monday!

Hi Mia,
Love your matchy match collection. Nothing like pink to make the cloudy days cheery! Such a sweet birdie and leaf umbrella, and of course the pink gingham lining! Perfectly perfect!!!!
Hope it's a sunny week, xoRobin❤

Hello Robin,

Thank you so much for your sweetest comment again! I love pink&gray together and if there's a bird too... I'm happy the set is liked!

Happy week!

Beautiful clouds AND pouches! I'm happy you're having cheery skies.

What a lovely pink themed set. (I saw the pink birdies in your shop on Mon. morning.)

Happy Creating,

Mia said...

Hello dear Anne,

The beautiful days are still here, sun shines and it's getting warmer and greener each day. I hope it's getting summery at yours too!

Happy Tuesday!

Pink and grey is a sweet conbination I always think, and your makes are perfect using those colours! The grey bit has certainly reflected our weather over the last month...but at last the sun is shining again now! Hope it is with you too, Mia.
Have a lovely week.

Mia said...

It's been pretty and sunny here, and I wish it's beautiful at your also! Wishing you a sunny and creative week!

Thank you so much, Teje!

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
