Downtown...


Just try to get something done around here in the morning with those two rascals wanting to be everywhere that I am.

This bag is such a great way to start a new year. True vintage fabrics, thanks ever so much to a special woman named Kim Z who read the story in the paper and started stockpiling for me (and you!)
Those dots are something; are they not?! And the swirls are real vintage as well. I imagine a big cushion in the 70's; or maybe some truly awful curtains. Its all hopped up with some sepia toned velveteen. Soft and wonderful. Under the flap; another delight- red velvet.

The interior is nothing to sneeze at either. I love those dots again, which believe it or not, was purchased at Wal-Mart for a home ec project last year.
And here is a sneak peak at tomorrow. Wednesdays are going to be Africa days.... So here's a tease.

As for "downtown", I'll take your bids and offers until 8 pm, cst.

For January, I am posting bags on Tues, Wed and Thurs of every week. Wed is "Africa Day" which usually means using a piece of fabric from Africa and celebrating its diversity.

So, log on during those three days of the week to see what the bag os the day is. If you like.... You bid. The auction closes daily at 8 pm.

thanks for visiting!
