Okay, well after yesterday's whirlwind, I hope you can all see the wonders of this "Edith and Ina" bag even though it has zero batik on it.
The bag is called "edith and ina" because of two women that are inadvertently involved in this particular piece.
My sister recently brought me a piece of fabric from India that she had purchased and made into an outfit for her friend Edith. The handle is made up of the remnants of that outfit.
Remember the big jar of buttons that a reader delivered over here for her 85 year old friend? The friend's name is Ina. So those three buttons are Ina's. And I love them.
Gorgeous! Warms me up on this fridged day.
hey Ariel! your bird friend got a bag yesterday. (you probably already know that...)
lovely bag again
it is like going to an art gallery combo library when i visit your site
yesterday's lady dancing was so unselfconsciously beautiful and relaxing but shape wise too close to my image
you know... love it on the bag ..not so much in the mirror
i visited a lady with a mirror that kind of tucked everything in and added height..think she might be open to having me as a regular ? teddy-j
provocative comment. Makes me think of rambling on about some of that stuff over at Blumderview....
will see if I can steal a few minutes later today.
thanks for sharing.
Here I was thinking that front flap used to be old, great aunt Edith & Ina's living room chair. (And that it had a faint odor of their yummy homemade cookies & talc before Joyce washed it.) The buttons alone are worth an opening bid of $50. Grandma M (sorry not Morris - although I have been there once)
Joyce, it's beautiful! Just so you know, I was at a seminar in Steinbach today and saw two of your bags! I stopped and chatted with the lady:)
well, it was stiff competition, but the bag is yours indeed, Grandma M!
