The End of Summer!!

This bag is my last tribute to a beautiful summer.  Rejuvenated and armed with tan, I feel I can face the cold winter ( for some of us at least!).

Read the poem,  enjoy the post, and be merry!!!

Indian Summer by Henry Van Dyke
A soft veil dims the tender skies,
And half conceals from pensive eyes
The bronzing tokens of the fall;
A calmness broods upon the hills,
And summer's parting dream distills
A charm of silence over all.

The stacks of corn, in brown array,
Stand waiting through the placid day,
Like tattered wigwams on the plain;
The tribes that find a shelter there
Are phantom peoples, forms of air,
And ghosts of vanished joy and pain.

At evening when the crimson crest
Of sunset passes down the West,
I hear the whispering host returning;
On far-off fields, by elm and oak,
I see the lights, I smell the smoke,--
The Camp-fires of the Past are burning.

Still, I would would love your input about my last bag for the Summer 2010.

Paisley Me Red ...

I love Paisley leaves designs, and this is one bag I adore!! After deliberating with myself on how to embellish it, I decided a flower will take away from the paisley designs, so I made my mind to use a small tag. I love the contact of the metal color, and the red it really gives me the feeling of the rich carpet markets in Egypt.

I hope you like it, I would love to hear from you.

Cute as a Button...!!

I made this small bag out of suit fabric, and I lined it with brown linen. I debated whether to embellish it with a flower, but I decided not to. I hope you agree with me!!
Tell me what you think, I would love to hear from you.

It is Marie Birthday...!!

Happy Birthday Marie, and many many returns.
Today I want to toast my Marie,
I want to thank Marie for being a true friend.
She has been my model for a while (actually my only model), and I adore her.

Marie loves compliments, that is why I want to be the first one to say:
Marie you are beautiful, and I love you.
 Isn't Marie beautiful ?

    King's chair

    In our home in Egypt, the sitting room was filled with the chairs’ design.
    Of course when you are in Egypt the first thing that will strike you is the elaborate furniture’s design with it rich colors. When I decided to make covers for this beautiful old designed sitting room, the fabric we chose was more elaborate than the fabric of the sitting room itself… Surprised? Nope!

    The little boy in the picture was eleven years old, whose dream was to be a furniture maker. His name was Ali. When I asked him for this photo he surprisingly asked, “Will you put it in the magazine?’ I replied no, this is for me, but little did I know that eventually I was going to put it in my blog, so I wish I told him yes! I am sure he would have been very happy!

    So, this is for you Ali!!!
