: Blog-Design-Dedication #5

This 'Black Macramé Sling Hanger' with vintage orange macramé beads has been inspired by Dana @ Mid2Mod!

I had already designated the black as the Mid2Mod colour, it's a classic, as are the posts on Dana's blog.
If you love midcentury design and all it encompasses, then this is a good place for you to go! 
(if your already a convert, then I can see you nodding your head!)

I have been sitting on this design for ages, she had remained unfinished....till I found a lovely pile of vintage macramé beads from a local market...then I saw Dana's post on her front door and then, as they say the rest is history!

Dana shares many loves!.... 
West German Pottery, Midwinter Pottery, Teak Furniture and Ranches!
Scandinavian Glass, Interior Design, Architecture
Succulents, Cacti, Planters and Air Plants!
Orange and Turquoise!
Books and Teaching!
and her Family!

 Now back to the dedication, dare I say it...this black hanger is a bit sexy too!

 Now Dana, I dedicate this hanger to you because I think you are FAB! 
Thanks for posting amazing designs on your blog, researching thoughtfully and keeping us Aussie girls in Mid-century Bliss!!

And thanks for commenting and supporting my adventures too!

Big Hug!

Next year I will also be designing a range of Ouch Beads inspired by the Atomic era! 
With Dana's help of course! 
Her doing all the leg work in research and me enjoying the posts!!! :)
