I’m proud to present the talented work of my friend Elizabeth. I recently found out that she has started an Etsy shop where she sells her absolutely gorgeous handpainted scarves and neckties. I have painted a scarf before, and let me tell you, it takes practice and a lot of talent to paint them like Elizabeth does. So please take a moment to browse through her lovely shop……..Silkiness, and if you like what you see, snap one up! They are one-of-a-kinds. My favorite is the green necktie………….now if only I had a man to wear it! 😉

When I came across this adorable necklace last week, I thought, “Wow, that’s neat!” I had been in the mood to try wearing a necktie because I think they’re adorable and interest-sparking fashion accessories……..but I hadn’t quite decided whether one would look (or feel) right on me. So this seemed like the perfect compromise; fashion forward and boyish, yet with a feminine touch.

{So I shamelessly copied}

I really love the way this fabric looks with the skirt I just finished making (more on that later……) and I was trying to find a way to incorporate it into the finished outfit…………..this was the perfect solution. 😀 I have another fabric that would look great with the skirt, too. Maybe another necktie necklace is is order.

A photo of the back because I think it looks cool. 😉
