Nothing new about the painting today, but like requested some pics of my wedding-tote.
As our wedding 8 years ago was rather "shabby-chique" I didn´t find the right purse matching to my purple-white dress. So I decided to sew one myself :) I finished it in the night before our wedding day, literally a last minute accessoire!
Only one year before I patched a t-shirt with the same design, which became something like my personal signature - two swallows in love.
Just working on some pillows with the same applications.
This tote will always remind me of one of the most beautiful days of my life, I´m often wearing it in summer, it never gets old :)
My name is Bettina and I´m a 37 year old woman who lives with her beloved husband and a bunch of beloved animals in a 400 year old farmhouse in Germany/Bavaria. I LOVE my family, art, animals, nature and books and I´m a passionate Kitsch-Collector (Specially Vintage Puppets, Robots and Space Age toys)and Pee-wee Herman enthusiast. Since 2005 I´m suffering of a massive case of UF (Urticaria Factitia)and chronic reccurring angioedema what means that my skin is oversensitive to pressure, warmth and other simple daily physical impacts, what makes my life a bit more difficult than for others. Being creative helps me a lot to deal with that. My art is all selftaught, I´m not a professional - even more I apprechiate your visits and comments on my blog.
Nice to meet you, I hope you enjoy :)

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." > Elisabeth Kübler Ross
