Yes, it was once a placemat!

A friend picked up these beaded placemats to use under the centerpieces at our wedding.  They had been floating around the studio for years since.  Sarah Jo took them and created these stunning clutch purses.  Each one has been reinforced with a cotton lining, then hand sewn to form the purse body.  She finished them with a pocket and magnetic clasp. There are three each in orange and pink and one turquoise clutch.

How perfect would these beaded clutches be for bridesmaid gifts?

The month of exploring my inspirations continues.  I spent last summer working on a friend’s vegetable farm.  One of my goals was to take lots of pictures and create a fan page on Facebook.  Midsummer I took this pre-cook shot of dinner and began to fantasize about making stuffed peppers.

Here are a few of my creations starting with the blue hubbard squash.
