I thought it was about time I wrote about someone else’s creations, so today I’m going to tell you about a lovely lady called Lise. I know Lise through a forum (Little Lost Lushies), and when not wrangling her truculent toddler she makes beautiful accessories from fabric.
This post is supposed to be an ode to Lise’s creative talents, but I can’t resist recommending her blog at this point. How to be a Domestic Disgrace is a brilliant read – so go and take a look!
Anyway, back to the main point – Lise’s work. She sells her creations at Belle & the Bean on Folksy. Lots of gorgeous brooches, corsages and hair clips. I generally don’t wear accessories, but earlier this year I was tempted into some hair clips that went perfectly with the dress I’d bought for my birthday, and last month I bought a brooch.
I couldn’t resist it. Back in July I was lucky enough to pick up a lovely Boden jacket (brand new with tags!) for just £3 (yup, THREE) at a school fair.
I thought it was perfect as it was, but when I saw this brooch in Lise’s shop I knew I had to have it as the finishing touch. Photograph shamelessly stolen from the Folksy listing…
I was right, it was the perfect touch and here’s a photo to prove it.
I should have taken a photo of me actually wearing the jacket but at the time of writing I’m in my pyjamas and can’t be bothered to get changed…
So, there we have it, the perfect accessory. There are oodles of pretty things at Belle & the Bean and I can vouch for the quality of the work Lise does. Go have a browse and treat yourself to something
