It is so hard to start a new week and at the same time there is a lot of hope involved.
I put together some rockabilly looks to kick this coming week since the first hour. Enjoy!

But we celebrated yesterday my sister's bridal shower.We have been planning it for a long time.
She wanted a hot pink and black combo on a damask theme. I purchased many items online at fellow etsian shops such as: lip shaped soap favors from www.
ShowerMe.etsy.com ,damask invitations from www.
happygirlgreetings.etsy.com ,utensils and table clothes.
We had two awesome cakes made by good friends ,one of the ,our wondeful cake maker Monica Nazario and the other one believe it or not made by the best man at Vivian's wedding.
Vero and Flor were in charge of food,that gladly filled our event purchased at Cotsco and I have to say that pastries and goodies are really good.Many of the girls were wearing hot pink and black.
I stood for black alone ,of course. And Valeria was radiant,shiny,glowing.
It was a busy afternoon followed by a great storm and a night to remember with friends,family and coworkers. We played a game of dressing a model with tissue paper and making a gown out of it. I was freaking out. That was my moment. I was creating the dress when I saw the other girls having fun with it and making bows and stuff on her hair.She started to look like a joke.
That is when I realized I wasn't on Project Runway! It was only a game!
Just wanted to show you some pictures to enjoy.

It all started with : Hi there Nora,Fancy winning your favourite product on DaWanda?
I love when they write fancy,it is so british.I remember at the Bridget Jones Diary movie when her mom ask her if she fancies a gerkin,and I laughed. That is because I don't usually hear people talking like that all the time. There is nothing I love more than the real english accent,I can still catch it in some song from Freddy Mercury and Elton Jhon.
So caming back to my topic I have been invited to the first Blogger Competition!
And this is my chance to let all my fellow followers know more about Dawanda,a web site for the handmade lovers most popular in Europe. Visit DaWanda! and take a look at the wonderful designers and artist featured under one big web roof.
I found a very interesting handbag creator called AnnaBelleBags. She makes the most gorgeous holster bags.
My favourite is a pink metallic Bag with holster of high-class pleather and a snakeskin effect.
All range of colours and styles are to be found at her page. Please take a look at my fave and browse for the one you'd love. Here you are going to have all the info about this product http://en.dawanda.com/product/4209210-Revolverbag-Halftertasche-Tiara-Limited-Edition
Of course they have in their collection the always trendy black and other neutral option the rusty gold tone or as they call it ,lemon metallic. You can find some inspiration on their Trend Pages.

From many years that has been my policy,seeing my customers happy when they receive their custom orders.Well I actually don't see them until they send me pictures of how they look wearing jeans,jackets and shoes. Last week I was happily shocked when I knew about a former customer who posted her new shoes in her blog and not only that,she create a whole article about recycling and upcycling shoes around the painting on the vintage shoes she purchased from me.
I invite you to take a look at this wonderful blog of Erin. http://mirkwoodcottage.typepad.com/prettyvintage/2009/05/vintage-remake-shoes-by-norakaren.html
Also Lisa sent me her pictures wearing the hummingbird on jeans and she is so excited she is sending me another pair. What a great way to upcycle and renew clothes and our wardrobe.
