Creative Spaces

I few months ago I made this dress, its based on 'the house dress'

         'House Dress' - The dress of choice for Colombian coastal mammas and housewives
         to handle the heat of the golden Colombian sun. Also known to three backpacking
         gals as the best find ever in the Santa Marta mercardo. Rocked to the beach, rocked
         on sweaty bus rides, and cinched with a belt (or shoestring) rocked to La Puerta
         the favourite night spot in Santa Marta.

I had planned to wear this out for a get-together with some friends ... but I really was after a nice necklace to go with.. something big and bold - much like the dress and me :)
This weeks Creative Space began with some playing with nature's scraps much like Luu does with her mobiles. I have really admired her awesome colour choices and fine painting of found twigs and driftwood and have had a little dabble of my own. Make sure you check Luu's colourful stall at many of our Auckland markets and head to her great blog too she has inspiring words of wisdom from nature and beyond.

Adding on some black cord .... im about ready for an outing!

Thank you for taking the time to share some cheer. Xx
