I felt bluegrassy

I have been tinkering with a range of bag tags to dangle from instrument's the first one. A mandolin.

not sure about the strings...
Mandolins are so lovely with their twirly swirly cow lick.

You don't get any better mandolin playing than Mr Bill Monroe - this is a clip with his Bluegrass Boys. And here, as a very old man, he plays a moving solo rendition of "My Last Days on Earth". Nothing like the mandolin to pull the heart strings taut to the point of breaking.

  1. The mandolin is gorgeous Julianne and I think it would look sweet hanging from any sort of case or bag!
    Your little girl Pep is very lucky to have such a beautiful dress. I love vintage patterns too...and Liberty. :)
    Thank you for buying my cards! They will be off to you tomorrow.
    Rug up!
