Wallet? Check. Cell phone...lipstick...SPF? Check. Coffee Beanie...fabric swatches...pen and scribble pad? Check. Coupons...Sunglasses? Check and check! Looks CAN be deceiving! This small drawstring bag measures 10x12 and is plenty big enough to carry all of life's little "can't-leave-home-without-'ems"...and then some! Featuring re-purposed denim, contrasting fun fabrics, kelly green lining (made from an old work shirt that still had some life), an inside pocket, and cute to boot! The Small Draw is sure to brighten the grayest of days!

When my sister Tina is around, her stack of cool books and magazines is never far behind. On our last visit, as we were flipping through the pages oohing and aahing (our idea of a good time), I found a picture of a posy and I was smitten. With a few tweaks and adjustments, I made it my own. It is my opinion that everything looks better when adorned with a flower.
Enter the Posy Purse. Re-purposed denim (no kidding, there were holes in the knees!) at its sweetest. A one-of-a-kind original that strikes a balance between too big and too small...it's just right!
The attention to detail didn't stop at the hand-stitched posy...This fully (pretty fabric) lined purse features an inside denim pocket (sized to hold your cell phone and lipstick), a magnet closure, reinforced stitching, top-stitching, and a frayed flap to keep its genuine denim appeal.
Be forewarned...when carrying this purse you are bound to attract bumble bees and butterflies!

While visiting beautiful Italy...I discovered (among many other things) the perfect meal. It all begins with a cheap bottle of red wine, paired with crusty little loaves of bread, topped with your favorite cheese...did I already mention the vino?! This Picnic-For-Two tote will accommodate your outing because this meal is best served under a Mediterranean blue sky. An up-cycled, flannel-lined denim bag that is tough enough to hold two bottles of wine (if you dare!). The large front pocket is just the right size for the corkscrew, cheese slicer, and two napkins. When not in use, it conveniently folds flat to stash where you will use it the most. A perfectly romantic gift for a bridal shower or that special anniversary. But remember...spontaneity is best accomplished when fully prepared! Always carry a blanket in your vehicle for just such an occasion as this. Buon Appetito!
