Fall’s {Almost} In The Bag

Pumpkin Spice lattes are available at Starbucks.

Football has started.

We’re getting closer and closer to my favorite season…17 more days to be exact.

I whipped up a little {fall} handbag for myself using a super duper clearance Target tote and a few rolled rosettes…

I just happened to have some leftover fabric that coordinated with the mustard colored bag and, again, used this tutorial for the rosettes.

I then played around with them until I found an arrangement that I liked before hot gluing them on.


For the amount of time it took me to put this together, I was so pleased with how it turned out.

I think some little make-up bags would be darling, as well.

This would be a sweet little semi-handmade gift for the holidays ~ perfect for teachers and all the ladies on your list.

I’m on the hunt for some more inexpensive totes & cosmetic bags and fun fabric for my holiday workshop!

Happy Tuesday…have a great {short} week!


Linking up to {What I Whipped Up Wednesday} over at Sugar and Dots and Sweet Saturday over at Gingerbread.

I’m totally tardy to the rolled rosette bib statement necklace party. And why didn’t I start making these earlier?

But I have made a few now and I LOVE how I can throw one together in a jiffy.

I am giving away my latest one along with a coordinating rosette ring.

This one features 6 rosettes in various sizes in a sort of asymetrical layout and hangs on a black grosgrain ribbon which lets you choose the length you want ~ just tie it in a pretty bow where it fits you best.

The fabric is black with bits of hot pink, yellow, orange, turquoise and white and will add a fun subtle punch of color to your wardrobe year round. It would look darling with my all time favorite outfit ~ a crisp white top, some comfy old jeans and a pair of fun flats, wedges or of course flip flops!

The ring is a one-size-fits-most deal and has a matching mini rosette perched on top. Again, will add a little somethin’ somethin’ to a casual, everyday outfit and compliment the necklace perfectly.

{not a professional hand model!}

Giveaway is open until midnight {PST} Tuesday, August 9th 2011. I will randomly select and announce the winner on Wednesday morning, August 10th 2011.

Don’t be tardy to the Giveaway Party!


I’ve been wanting to make a rosette bib necklace for some time now.

There are a bajillion tutorials out there in blogland, but the most recent one I’ve seen being here.

I had the fabric {and felt} on hand and picked up the rustic chain at Joann’s.

Maybe I will branch out when I make others and add more rosettes in varying sizes, patterns and colors and posibly a few buttons or what not…but for now I am satisfied with this simple piece.

Perfect for Fall and Winter for the perfect friend.

Hope she likes it.

And I hope you have a great week ahead!
