Poppy-ular


Well, last week's poppies made upright church ladies resort to hard hearted lying.
Big, bad, deception.

But the truth always wins.
The girl with the curls- that sweet, lovely, and generous Fancy saved the day.
Now, one has to ask- is it the good and generous in me who pulled the remains of that tablecloth out of the archives and set straight to work? Or is it the blood-thirsting spectator in me?

The body of the bag is fashioned from a burnt orange corduroy skirt that had seen better days. (not mine). Two large pockets beneath the flap wait for your giant bags of money.
Or keys.
Or pies.



And then there's all the fun in the shoulder strap. Did you know that a shoulder strap is an experience in artistry all on its own? Just a grand place to play with colour and texture.




Here's the poppy bag inside out. A pair of cargo shorts make two pockets on the one side.
The bottom of my shirt make another two on the other side.


For all you women looking for diaper bags, laptop bags, school bags, or just a big bag-- here's to you- Poppy-ular measures 16 inches wide, 14 inches deep. She's big.
Please begin your bids at $25- Canadian. This auction will last until Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 9:30 pm, cst. (if I forgot anything, leave me a comment. What the heck. Just leave me a comment anyway).
