Monthly theme post: Purple

I've been skipping Victorian Kitty's theme posts for far too many times now. When she choosed the excellent theme purple I definitely had to join, until I realized that I don't have much purple at home. I love that colour with the combination of black but have not much clothes, interior stuff etc. 
But I could show you what I'm working on right now wich is actually something purple. Insomniacs Attic knows definitely what is going on here :). It's a work in progress for a surprise for my fellow readers and this is so far I have come. The fabric is printed with my own design and then stitched with hand embroidery.

One thing I do frequently including the purple colour is nails. I found this talented nail artist. I wish I had her long nails and excellent patience. It takes lots of practising, patience and skills to make marbled nails. I made four but only one was good looking enough to take a blurry photo of. Click the link above to nicer examples and instructible tutorials.

The cute boyfriend (I'm so lucky and my female relatives have named him teddybear :D ) he forces me to buy nail polish at the supermarket. That is something that makes you happy, so please buy, says he.
 At last I would like to show you another loving couple. Our bunnies have fallen madly in love with each other. they are kissing and licking each other all the time. It breaks my heart to see them apart like this with the fence separating them. But if we would let them be together we would possibly end up with lots of bunnies, if we are lucky. If it goes worse we maybe end up with only one, the lady is almost 5 years old and I'm not sure if she can carry a baby.
Enjoy your weekend ladies <3 i="">

  3. Your project looks so lovely! Can't wait to see it finished and the surprise revealed!

    Mr. Kitty is much like your boyfriend - he encourages me to splurge a little if it makes me happy. That's a good kind of man to have! ;) I've long admired the marbled nail look, but can't get myself to take the time to try it. And I can foresee it chipping an hour later, after all that work... But the effect is so beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing in this month's Purple theme!

    1. Oh after doing this blog post. I gave the nail art another chance. First of all put on a proper base coat and finish with a protective top coat and do one nail at a time. Doing all the nails at once made it a complete mess with nailpolish everywhere but the nails :)

  4. Det blir verkligen en fin & unik vinst till nån lycklig vinnare!!!

    Jag har själv en gedigen samling nagellack, tyvärr så är mina naglar så mjuka så de bryts lätt...dessutom så har jag den fula ovanan att bita på dem...

    STOR kram från Jenny

    1. Jaa. Flickan har varit själv i 4 år och först så tog hon ingen notis alls om Fluffy men nu sitter de tätt tätt på var sida om stängslet och det skär verkligen i hjärtat.

  12. Aaaw, your bunnies...! ^^
    And I'm looking forward to see your finished project, the progress pic looks so pretty! ^^

    I have absolutely no talent for nail art, I can't even paint my nails smoothly with one color...and since I started playing the guitar, I prefer to have really short nails, too short for nail polish...:D

    1. My nails use to be long but now they are breaking all the time, so they are short too. Nice that you start playing guitar, that is something that develops yourself.
