Beads Buttons and Bows

Dinah Shore's 1947 song lyrics provided inspiration for this week's tag - and I did include a bow, some buttons and beads. I made a few "autumn" backgrounds with some new paints during the week, so I am afraid all of this month's tags will be on one of these backgrounds. The face is drawn with a fine felt tipped marker and coloured pencils. Some of the song's lyrics are written with the same felt tipped marker ... 
"East is East, and West is West, 
And the wrong one I have chose, 
Let's go where I'll keep wearin' 
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows, 
Rings and things ( perhaps it should  be beads) and buttons and bows.

I am really in the swing of drawing faces, as I was in the 29 Faces  September Art Challenge  I made 29 tags with faces, here is the link, if you are interested in having a look.
