noces de coquelicot

while browsing for a poppy of any kind, done in any possible way, i stumbled, of course, on georgia O'keefe's famous "red poppy".
click on her photo, see why she painted a red huge poppy, it's worth a visit.

i believe her face to be one of those i find stunning and beautiful. she looks like an icon, like a yoko ono, like me at times at some stages in my life. she looks like the inner person you are if you did not put so much effort into looking like someone other than your true self. that is why i like this photo so much.

voila ou je voulais en venir: les noces de coquelicot, 8 ans de Vie... ce n'est pas rien, ca vous fait des cheveux blancs et des cheveux blonds, au gre du temps. parfois meme des cheveux noirs...

a placer dans le registre de l'amour; merci Amour.

lace mohair necklace with crystals

this necklace was a bit harder to knit but it is worth the trouble. it will be great with a lycra white top. it's worn here with a straps top, but might as well be worn with a tight T, not showing any flesh at the neck line.

pour clarisse

clarisse m'a donne une idee super. j'avais deja envie de voir ce que ca pourrait donner avec des perles. ce collier ressemble deja a ceux en perles des "saraguros". donc si je vais y ajouter des perles ca sera tres parcimonieusement pour garder les lignes deja pures.

ce que j'aimerais avec du fil mohair noir c'est des perles en forme de coeur, plutot "bold" ou "presentes" aussi etonnant que ca puisse sembler.

je prefere ca a des perles de crystal classy mais un peu trop subtiles pour un choix ose de fil pour un modele comme celui-ci.

en tout cas, voici ce que ca donne.

o'purple lace necklace

i made this with purple yarn, it's pretty thick so it's plush, unlike the lacier similar one is blue down below. i know this irish girl that is crazy about purple and is irish (O'...), so this one's a tribute to her.
