"Every woman should have a purse of her own". Part III

My favorite quote- Susan B. Anthony.
More bags for upcoming shows....a sneak peak....
I'm using a lot of linen, barkcloth, bird images, Matryoshka images, vintage lace.....
These probably won't make it to my Etsy shop so please email if interested in purchasing.
These are all one-of-a-kind , and each vary slightly depending on lace, linen color etc.
The interior fabric is an awesome Matryoshka print.
More tomorrow- I'm off to sew!

"Every woman should have a purse of her own." Part I

I've always loved that Susan B. Anthony quote.
I'll be giving you a sneak peak at the bags I'm showing at my 2 upcoming shows. These probably won't make it to my Etsy shop (hopefully they'll all sell!)
If you see some thing you want email me for details. This linen bag is one of my favorites with a vintage hanky.....
....and "my beloved" in Spanish, with vintage lace & button detail.
These 2 coral bags are made from high end home dec remnants. One-of-a-kind with ceramic buttons and vintage lace detail.
Great for summer.....
More vintage lace & high end fabrics....
More in a day or so.....

2 Reasons I've Been So Busy.....

She still has puppy breath, that little puppy belly, total attitude! We rescued Lucy, a beagle/golden mix ( we think!) 2 weeks ago and life is good! There's absolutely nothing more special than seeing an 8 year old boy with his dog- his best bud. She's a hand-full for sure- but I feel our home is now complete! 1 dog, 2 cats and 3 humans :)
I also wanted to tell you all about another upcoming event I'll be showing- The Holiday Market at Bar Symon in Avon Lake, Ohio. Yes- THE Michael Symon. Bar Symon has gratiously allowed us to sell our wares Thanksgiving weekend in their new trendy bar. What fun!
Besides my bags & totes, I'll be showing my leather and vintage beaded cuffs.
Hours for the Holiday Market are
Sat. 11/28 4:00-9:00pm, and
Sun. 11/29 10:00-3:00pm.
More info & directions here.
