Orange You Glad?

That ladies used to use their "free time" to crochet these layered flowers?

I am.

I find them at the thrift shop sometimes- these intricately stitched together series of flowers meant to adorn your coffee table.

Death by overkill.

But when I pick them apart and look at them individually....


The same can be said about many "parts" that make up the whole of any discarded item. A belt becomes a purse strap and looks-- different! Fun. Reinvented.

A one time 4-H apron project complete with intricate cross stitching becomes a pocket.

Or two.

(bag turned inside out)

Wouldn't it be nice if we could

take ourselves apart

and remake


just the good?

(But its more fun...


to pick




This is a medium sized shoulder bag, measuring 10.5" across and 11" up and down.It is pocketed, the strap is adjustable. It's essentially awesome, and you need it.So, leave a comment below, or just give me some love, and we'll shut down this orangey auction on thursday, December 15, at 7:00 pm.
