Time Goes By and More Shawls

The Clay Ball has come and gone and it was so much fun. I finally found a group of people who really appreciate my wearable art. The city I live in is very conservative and people do not like to step out of the norm very much. That is fine, but it is a bit hard on folks like me who like to dress in bright colors and show off, and who like to make brightly colored clothing for others. People came to the event in all kinds of wonderful dress, some formal, some just dressy, some cocktail, a lot of great vintage. There was a silent auction and a live auction and I had a piece of wearable art in both. I modeled my "jackety-shawl" while it was bid on. Wow, was that intimidating! I wore the shawl in these pictures over my lace dress, very vintage. The pictures just don't do it justice-oh well...

I have had a lot of fun making scarves and shawls using my lace. I decided that using it was the best thing, that letting it sit in a drawer was not what it was meant for. I am careful to let the great designs and the delicacy of it show through. 

This white one would be great for a winter wedding, or for a cool evening. It is so soft and the lace is so beautiful. 

Now I just need to find someone who is getting married. Hugs


  1. wow cameron, these are absolutely beautiful:)

  2. Sounds as if you had a great time and found some like minded people as far as clothing goes. Hope that it proves to be a good piece of networking.

    The shawls are very beautiful especially the white one.

    Send an image to a wedding magazine, you never know.

  3. Thank you blogger buddies. Your support is always appreciated. Many hugs

  4. Hi Cameron,
    I was visiting your Etsy shop today and saw your more recent offerings there. Your grand daughter is definitely a much better, much prettier model than I am. Black is a good color to wear in modeling these garments. You just get better and better. Glad the Clay Ball was fun and that you met some like minded people. I hope the bidding went high on your donated work. I had friends over today and they were very taken with your vest, which I have on my dress form, reminding me that I need to take it in so I can wear it. Love these lacy pieces. I like your new blog header too.

  5. What a wonderful experience :-) The bridal/winter shawl is beautiful.

  6. What beautiful work. The white one is my favourite. So feminine with that fabulous lace.

  7. Oh, Cameron...the white one just blows my mind!
    How beautiful they all are. You are on a roll, my friend!! XXO-
