Lily Inspiration: Colour!

All of Glenda's Nicaraguan photos on the blog this week are rubbing off on me. One of the best parts of my job at Smoking Lily is picking out fabric colours, and right now it is all about the hot pinks and aqua blues. Nicole just finished a run of Good Wallets. Check out the inside of this one: hot fuchsia suede with light aqua blue leather and a coral zipper. So beautiful.

We upholstered a bench today in African-influenced fabric with hot, hot, hot pink. I can't wait 'till this is done; the legs are painted in bright cyanine blue.

Now that we have a shop in Chinatown, we are getting ready for the New Year's celebration next weekend. This is the very beginning of a lantern we are making for the window display. Milkman's Daughter will post a finished picture next week.

The other thing we are working on today is a new skirt in teal blue. Doesn't Aiko's ass look great in it?!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
