PAPER JEWELRY

I fell in love with this designer while visiting the National Stationery Show in NY. So much so I am inspired to create with paper. How delicious and I purchased a piece from her that is so extraordinary I can't take it.

New Handbag Patterns

Well I've been at it and I think you will likee. I love all 3 new bag patterns which are going to be available in the next few weeks. Using my new Pernilla's Journey fabrics I had a ball making these up. I named each of the 3 after 3 of my special aunts. Sukie, Moira and Fortiny. All gorgeous, talented and strong women... I adore them and can't tell you how much they have played a role in my life.

Let me know what you think and keep watching tinagivens.com as we load them up. First seen here~

A brilliant concept. I need to design furniture....

I stumbled on this collection recently, and it blew my head off. I am inspired.... Here's a taste!
The whole mix of vintage and fabric is divine, n'est pas? I need to design a line like this. I love it, I think my fabrics would be superb and what a fun project. These pieces are from a small design firm called BOKJA, and they created these for THE QUIRICO COMPANY....
