A Little Birdie Told Me

Remember that coat? (scroll down past the bit about the business cards)

Well, I still have a few pieces left. Enough to pair with some of those fantastic circles from Kim Z.

Enough for a zany little bird on the border.

(that's a pic of the strap- I combined some dots, some coat lining, a wildly wonderful bit of paisley, and some solid blue)

The turquoise goes great with purple cord, some teale scraps, and of course, the dots.

On the reverse side of the flap, you can see the stitching detail with shows up on the turquoise leather.

Cheeky little birdie.

Inside out shots: gives you a better view of what the pockets are like.

Would you believe me if I told you that I still have numerous pieces of amazingness that are yet unexplored? Well, believe it.
Thank you for posting links on your own blogs to bring your friends and stalkers over here. It's encouraging to see new names and bidders.
There is new unrest in Sudan. It's alltogether discouraging, but that doesn't relieve us of the responsibility to do what we can. Also, a devastating earthquake in Haiti. Every dollar over $50 will go to WFP for the displaced persons in Haiti today.
bag: 11" wide and 10" deep.
This auction will conclude today, January 13 at 9:30 pm central standard time.
$25.00 Cdn to start, please.

A friend told me about your bags, and I LOVE them. What I love more is the message and where your heart is. Can you send to Ontario?

joyce said...

Yay! for friends who tell friends! (anyone do stumbleupon? I'd love people to click "I like it" in their stumbleupon bar so that we'd get some more traffic....)

Ontario- no problem.

Thank you Melodie- this bag is perfect for you. A piece of your bird loving grandma.
