Tie Creations in my Whimsy Mind


The other day while looking for something to dress up my tee shirt and remembering I had just done the rosette swap. A light bulb moment went off in my head to make a rosette while still keeping a tie style for my tee shirt!  Simply adorable!
I like to use pure silk ties they are just easier to shape and sew ...
When my teen girls saw it on, they too feel in love with them! This is such a great way to re-purpose old vintage ties! I added a little "bling" for the picture but, I believe either way these ties are great way of dressing up any plain old tee shirt or blouse. 
I would love to know what you think and see what you are creating this week...

A Vintage Sassy Pink Saturday..





I am  feeling like have a A Vintage Sassy Pink Saturday..  I am addicted to the color Pink, in all shades

The Meanings of the Color PINK ♥

Pink is the color of universal love. Pink is a quiet color. Lovers of beauty favor pink. A pink carnation means "I will never forget you".



Pink Color Meaning with Boys & Girls WWII

Interestingly, during the time of the Great Depression, pink was associated with boys instead of girls because it was seen as more decided and masculine, while blue was associated with girls because it was seen as more dainty and delicate. This color stereotype was later inverted after World War II.

Pink Energy

Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Shades of deep pink, such as magenta, are effective in neutralizing disorder and violence. Some prisons use limited deep pink tones to diffuse aggressive behavior.
Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.
Put some pink in your life when you want:
  • calm feelings
  • to neutralize disorder
  • relaxation
  • acceptance, contentment
