Artistic Affaire Moulin Rouge!
Through a friend I was pleased to find out about Artistic Affaire, a wonderful weekend long event hosted by Kim Allistar Caldwell and taking place this week in California, starting today on St. Patrick's Day. I won't be able to attend the event in person, but I was happy to create two garters to be part of the raffle! Letting the Moulin Rouge theme of the event inspire me, these are the garters that I happily sent off to California and which are now waiting to beautifully grace the legs of two lucky ladies. I had to show several pictures of the first one just to get all the details in! Done in plus purple and gold silk ribbons, it has hand pleated ribbon across the front, two bows with vintage glass buttons, and on the back a hand embroidered bow as well as a beaded tassel! Oh la la!! The second one is also made of plum purple silk satin ribbon, french style black lace, and the front is adorned with a silk ribbon flower, black feathers and a Swarovski crystal. I hope they will be well recieved.
Take a peek at Kim's blog post about the event, you will wish that you were in California this weekend!! Keep it in mind for next year, she hosts this event each year, with a different theme each time. Have fun all lucky participating ladies!
