The Valise

There is something about a bag made from fabric--when fabric looks more than just fabric--this falls into that category for me. The Etsy designer, MimsMaine, describes its construction as "built like a suitcase, but is very light." That is what I like to hear--so that means it DURABLE! And in this economic upheaval, we definately need durability--something that lasts! I love the strapping detail, it's decorative but also serves a purpose. I can definately see myself carrying this about you? Check out MimsMaine's Etsy Shop!

Little Miss Sunshine

This sweet yellow mustard handbag made from high quality denim will make your day even brighter . . . and with the rain we've experienced in the last two weeks, we could all use some of that!

I love this bag's simplicity and the attention to detail that the designer put into the construction. This "strong, elegant, and fresh" look makes a bold statement. You won't be disappointed to visit "myTida's" Etsy shop.-- (at first when I read the designer's name, my mind saw "Matilda"--very cute--I wonder what "myTida" means?)

Wake Up! - Smell The Coffee. WAIT---------Take Time to Smell The Roses.

Right now I can't sew for a number of reasons and it driving me bananas, so I figure the next best thing is showing off other people's creativity...until I can get back into the swing of things.

This lovely clutch caught my eye on Etsy. It's cloth, but the weave is big enough to enunciate it's construction roots and cross over to something more than just "cloth". And the placement and color of the ruffles, magnificant! The Etsy designer, "morewarped", from Virginia, calls this "Fat Free Ruffles" . Check out her shop if you get the chance, it worth a gander.
