Box Bags

Fun cube shaped bags to make.  This one has silk fabric painted with Shiva oilsticks over rubbing plates.  Wrist straps were put thru a wooden ball slide so that the slide moves to open the purse and clamps down to keep everything closed and secure.  Cute for evenings out.  Yeah, I have alot of those!!  

I think I'll make one in denim next.

First Iris Bloom

A couple weeks ago I took this picture of a new Iris to bloom in my garden.  The peachy ones are coming up too.  I planted mini gladiolas this year and the leaves are up but no stalks yet.  I think they bloom in June.  I love this color but don't recall planting it.  Lovely surprise!
