{BLACK BAROQUE LUXURIES} Elizabeth Mourning Pillow

{ELIZABETH MOURNING PILLOW}

Clad in old world elegance befitting a queen, this cushion whispers of long dead monarchs while holding a dark secret at her heart... 

{Adding the final details by by midnight & candle light}
{A luscious trove of finery}
{A bit of sinister company}
 Rendered in rich tones reminiscent of the Tudor court, this cushion is truly regal in nature. Much inspired by a collection of materials in onyx, apricot and burnt orange the conjuring of this cushion began. A fragment of vintage silk velvet in a ravishing shade of russet became the perfect background for such finery. A collage of cut velvets and gilded galloons forms a wide panel, to each side a decadent trim dangling pom pom tassels. At the center, a corsage style medallion holds a darkly glittering vintage gem. If one looks closely, a sinister skull encased in amber can be spotted, a curious detail indeed... This memento mori is made complete with a layer of iridescence ribbon fringe and several tattered silk shards. At the cushion's edge, a luscious brush fringe, the finishing touch...

Shall you invite this Grand Dame in to your cottage or castle? 

This item is currently available in our Etsy Shop.

  1. Saw it on Pinterest, went over to Etsy, started a message to you twice asking whether “Shall you invite this Grand Dame in to your cottage or castle?” wasn't a redundant question, then deleted them ... I need to go back to sleep and decide whether we should eat wieners for the next month or whether I should buy another pillow. ;)

  16. Boa noite turma, provavelmente disparar um torpedo web gratuito está cada vez mais difícil devido a restrição das operadoras de telefone. Há ainda serviços de terceiros (sites) que prometem entregar meu SMS mas quase nunca chegam ao usuário final. Alguns como o Mundo oi e o Oi Torpedo funcionam mas e para as outras operadoras? E os que prometem que enviam e nada chega. Para onde está indo as meus SMS? E para a Tim, Vivo? Alguma Idéia? Ou significa ter de desembolsar?. É só um desabafo, realmente está difícil achar bons sites para enviar SMS de graça. interview with the Maven CEO
