Shopping at Home County Folk Festival

Home County has always been known to get a variety of high-quality craft vendors, and I like to wander the booths looking for possible additions to my wardrobe.  Andrea Pope, of Lumiere Designs, is a regular vendor at Home County with her "sculpture wear".   Her dramatic neck pieces and ear ornaments are for women who don't mind being the center of attention:
Andrea Pope, wearing, and surrounded by, her unique designs.  I love the ear/face piece she is wearing, and have tried on a couple of them, but they don't work as well if you wear glasses.  To see more of her designs, check out her website.

I have a rather sizeable collection of coats and jackets (how anyone can get through a Canadian winter with only one winter coat is beyond my comprehension) and am especially drawn to ones in unusual colours with details like oversized pockets or collars and eye-catching buttons.  Needless to say, when I came across these coats at the booth Designs by S.A.D., I was a little bit in love.  They are made from sweaters and coats that have been taken apart and felted, then pieced together into a one of a kind jacket.  The buttons are also recycled, many of them from the 1940's.

  3. In olden times, wearing fine jewellery was limited only to the wealthy and the powerful. However, modern technology has allowed for the mass production of beautiful and high-quality pawn shops in scottsdale az pieces. Thus, fine jewellery has become a means of expressing taste and style instead of just a statement of wealth.

  18. Recognizing the beauty within. As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well, in 2014, beauty is defined in many more ways, as the minds of humans open up to the entire world, and realizes, that beauty is not just based on one idea of what true beauty really is.
