I just put these new purses up in my Etsy store.
Each purse was handmade and hand painted by me.
They are the perfect size for a night out dancing and a great conversation piece. I am the kind of lady who doesn't usually wear clothes with pockets so a statement purse is an essential fashion piece. Also, they make great birthday or holiday gifts.

Happy 100th birthday to my favorite actress ever Vivien Leigh.
"I'm a Scorpio, and Scorpios eat themselves out and burn themselves up like me."-- Vivien Leigh [born 5 November 1913]
When I was a little girl I used to play with Vivien Leigh barbie dolls.
She was a great actress, a tortured soul, a great beauty, and had the loveliest wardrobe.
She will always be one of my top personal style icons.
Yesterday, Mitzi and I enjoyed a brisk fall walk. Here in New England the autumn foliage is so colorful.
Vintage hat, vintage mink trimmed jacket fromthe 1940s, and black dress from Express.
A look inspired by Pre-Raphaelite paintings of Saint Mary Magdalene.
Big Pre-raphaelite hair. The color red is sacred to Mary Magdalene and her iconography includes a holy grail, a mirror, a white dove, huge red hair, a pomegranite, a crucifix, and a red egg. Mary Magdalene is represented in some tarot decks as "the Queen of Cups". Oddly,she shares a lot of sacred symbols with the Roman Goddess Venus.

Recently, I was inspired to make a golden magical unicorn mirror. I used a mixture of antique and found pieces.
It features unicorns as a symbol of purity, doves and branches as symbols of peace and divine inspiration, angels as guardians, and a cross as a symbol of eternal life.
As much as I adore the mirror and it is one of a kind I have decided to share it with others and have listed it on Etsy.com. My unicorn is in need of a good home.
Akhenaten was the husband of Queen Nefertiti and the father of King Tut. He is most famous for the Amarna Revolution.
Meadham Kirchhoff continues to be at the top of my list of favorite designers. Their new collection was every bit as gothic and romantic as I wanted it to be. What a cohesive and enjoyable display of dark yet delicate romantic doll clothes for adults. The clothes are dollike but not too lolita as they still remain womanly and sophisticated. Italian renaissance inspired ringlets in platinum and in bright henna orange, baroque inspired colorful knee socks, renaissance bodices, and baroque inspired halo straw hats make the models look like some kind of doll-like Madonnas.
Now trending: snakeskin, metallic, lace, halo straw hats, ringlets, renaissance hair, platinum hair, red hair, bows, gothic, knee socks, & gothic fashion
