Tapestry In Fashion

HolaCompadres!  I feel like a bad mama. I've been so busy, my poor sweet little blog is not getting all the love it deserves.  Sometimes it is so hard trying to balance it all but like a true soldier I keep at it.

I had a few hours of R&R this today so I decided to spend some time searching for one of the things I am madly infatuated with at the moment.  Tapestry! 

Now I know this may not sound exciting but after this post you will see why I am so hyped. Trust me, a good piece of tapestry is like comfort food.  It is soooooooo good!

Tapestry has always captivated me because of it's texture, depth and personality.  It is so much more than just a piece of fabric. Tapestry has heart. Soul. Love. And history.   Many of them are hand woven and can take months even years to complete. The hard work and attention to detail is what makes these pieces so endearing and special.  I particularly love the fact that tapestry allows for boundless artistic expression. From fashion to decor and beyond, there are no limits, only fabulous-ness.   


I am still looking for a vest similar to the one pictured here but anyone of these pieces would be very welcome in my closet.  

I absolutely adore this framed piece.  So romantic and dramatic at the same time.  Pieces like these are hard to find but perfect to express one's personality and well worth the time spent searching for them.

Idris Elba.....My Crush Confession

Okay.  So this is a confession slash outing of my ahem admiration of all the fineness that is Mr Idris Ela. This man is super talented, handsome in a rugged and very manly way, plus he oozes swag from every glorious pore.  I am sure women everywhere is swooning over him so this post is not to join the band wagon....but I guess by writing this I just did.  Ha ha, oh well.

On a serious note, I am happily married so this is just a silly crush and the hubs thinks it is funny.  He has his crush too by the way. More on that later.

In the main time, check these pics of Mr Elba out and give your eyeballs some premium eye candy!
