Las Vegas

My mum loves Las Vegas. She wanted to drive her new convertible to Vegas and have a Grace Kelly experience. So My sister and daughter and I brought our hats and headed to Vegas.

As you can imagine it was quite the funny experience trying to enjoy being in 106 degree weather with the top down and fumes and diesel coming from all directions from the other cars. Needless to say we only lasted about 45 minutes.

 I wanted to share some of the things I love about Vegas that inspire me to design and create. Above those are rows and rows of beaded sequins drooping like lights and curtains coming from all directions. Beautiful!
 Mosaics that create shapes and colors.



 Lights in trees.

 Fancy Shaped lamp shades in beautiful color combinations. Look at those shapes.
 You know diamonds are a girls best friend. Look at those yellow diamonds.
 The following pictures are from Le Reve. An incredible Circus O' Le show.
 These were incredible flowers that dropped from the ceiling. It was a spectacular show.












 Of course you can't go to Vegas without seeing sporty cars.



 Fancy limousines for the rich and famous.


 This ceiling is incredible. The detail with no expense spared.



 This was the view from our hotel. Beautiful.

 Of course lunch at the Cheesecake Factory was a highlight. It was national cheesecake day so all cheesecakes were half price. We had to try several. They were yummy. You can probably look at this picture and gain weight.

 Gorgeous pink chandeliers out of glass.

 This was a fun store that used old sewing machines as their decor. It was fabulous. I had to take pictures and share how fun those old machines are and what a unique idea for decorating a clothing store.






Well on with the day. Happy sewing to everyone. Thanks for stopping by to see the things that inspire me and make me happy.
