This is a picture heavy post and it starts with some (dodgy) photos I took ages ago when I was walking back ‘home’ in the Dales. I know I’ve mentioned this colour combination before, the greens, browns and purple pinks; but these colours really do always remind me of North Yorkshire.
They are a colour combination I keep returning too.
They were part of the inspiration for Fox clothing some years ago (I only just re-listed Foxes and my last purple Mr & Mrs sold straight away….I wasn’t expecting that).
And when I made the recent red rose purse, I couldn’t resist making a ‘Yorkshire’ coloured one. By the way, I am so in love with this new dog-tooth check tweed, it’s all autumn heather, with a brown base and hints of purple and green. I bought loads so I can make myself a suit, which I’m quite excited about, it might even get used with one of my 1940’s patterns.
But back to the purse.
It has a shot cotton lining with pocket, and a pink rose brooch.
And can be found here.
You may notice that my site has had a re-vamp. I’ve changed the front page design and re-loaded all my product images so they are a bit larger. It took forever (and there is still some to do) but it was worth it. I often feel that my work is shown so much better here, on the blog, and on the actual sales page is a bit of a let-down and you can’t see the details or quality nearly as well. I was also just bored and felt like a change. The new, simpler layout with top menu is much better, it still needs a new banner though, I really must get around to that soon.
Oh, and as we’re on the subject of pink and green, I also added some new double pink roses.
All mounted up and ready to go.
