Sunday, February 8
I have nothing new to show you, but I thought it would be nice to revisit my family bellpull for those that have not seen it before..
I love everything Victorian...I was inspired to make this Victorian Bellpull in memory of my Dh's father and my parents
I'm sorry the pic is not very clear as I had to stand right back to fit the whole bellpull in the pic, but it will give you an idea of what it looks like as a whole.
Below I have taken photos of the different sections of the bellpull..
I tried to capture the Victorian feel with pink and burgundy silk fabrics, hand dyed laces, embellished with SRE and beading
I just love this bellpull, I'm hoping my family will treasure this for years to come.
This pic shows my father-in-law after World War 11
Much to my great disappointment I never did get to meet him.
This pic is of my DH as a young boy before he was sent out to Australia...
He really has not changed much at all
This is me, about 3 years old, check out the huge bow on my hair...nearly as big as I was!
Here is my Dad, as a young man in the Navy...I love the old black and white photos.
My beautiful mother, as a young 18 year old...who I miss very much.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of her.
This bellpull hangs just inside my front door....so I see it every day as I walk past it...
Please spare a thought for our fellow Aussie over on the east coast...they are doing it tough with bush fires raging out of control..
Our Sunday paper headline reads..."Victoria on Fire"...very scary!
Have a lovely day, I'm off to read the Sunday paper and enjoy the day...♥
