(Mariatu Janice-- Floey says; "Hello".)
If you've been following the bags4Darfur Drama... You'll know about our simultaneous branch-breaking neck and neck ties. (neckties? Great idea!)
You'll likely have heard audible gasping from your very own corner of the worldwide web, as the women of the forest rallied to bring home the branch.
Well, I'm here to suggest that all good things come to she who waits.
My greed has seen its own demise, and these perfectly crafted baubles are now yours to enjoy. I've received so much pleasure from them myself. I hope you feel as I do.
I think I have failed to mention that the branches on these bags are cut from leather samples. As in, I may never find my ideal chocolate brown leather couch at a yard sale for a hundred bucks, but I did receive leather sample swatches from the furniture store. Instead of piecing them together and making my own couch, thankyouverymuch, I cut them into branch shapes and then laid them fuzzy side up. (Is that what suede is? Upside down leather?) The effect is decidedly woodsy in a classy kinda way.
Amazing what a gal can find in a million or two stacks of fabric. I never knew I had so many roses.
Yep, a bit of early morning sewing, and she's ready to hit the runway.
Hard to know what Brian is wearing to work these days. Another one of his shirts went into the top secret pocket club. The bottom hem forms two small pockets above it.
On the other side, three more pockets.
Nice neutral tones, to help you blend in with nature :)
" Coming Up Roses" measures 12.5" wide and 13" deep.
Please start your bids at $25.00 Canadian. DDae and Corrine, if you decide that you gotta have this one, then please go ahead and use your $76.00 buy-it-now option. Either way, it's all good with me. Everyone else- please don't be polite. Love it? Please bid. Otherwise I have nothing to look forward to when I check my inbox at lunch time.
Thanks everyone, for positive comments and a happy buzz over here at the bag depot.
Auction concludes tonight, March 17 (my sister's birthday!! Happy Birthday Kathy! You're the bestest!!!) at 9:30 pm, cst.
