Blue & White Serenity

"Blue & White Serenity" - Acrylic 12"x12" By Mary Maki Rae 2012(c)
Upon returning home it felt so delightfully refreshing to paint this Blue & White China Coffee Pot - unto a subtle Light-blue and Lavender textured background.
The last of the Bright Orange - Yellow - and Magenta flowers of Summer complemented the blues so well-!
An unusual "round" Pear shares space with some small sweet mandarine Oranges.

Here's one of My Garden Muses back again - this time as a Cosy - I thought she looked so pretty with this painting.

Winter Dreams Revisited

The Travel Tote worked out so well on my Trip - I found that I really enjoyed the Texture and Fall Colors of the Fabric.
So once home - I thought a smaller Shoulder-type Tote would be nice to have for this Season - for every-day shopping etc.
Cutting & laying out the Fabric

Here's the Tote side with the Tab - on which I thought a perfect spot for a Cameo pin (as I've sewn velcro underneath for the closure)
Along with the Tote - a small bag - Just the right size for a few cosmetics.
I've used Ribbon for the Closure because I like bows - But velcro and a Pearl Button again - would work perfect too.

 The small Bag Open.
