...i willingly admit
i. am. a. seeker.
one of a kind, artisan items...
pieces that speak to my soul
and that are created with much love...
i have been searching for a bag that i felt was "me"
for quite some time.
until i figured out,
what i searching for, just wasn't out there.
so this is the tale of a most beauteous leather and lace bag
it came to be.
this lovely bag
is the creative work by the hands of
her shop is one of the very first shops
i stumbled across years ago,
when i first opened my etsy shop.
i bought a whimsical slip dress from her vintage shop
that i have worn for my birthday,
every year when i visit Carmel-by-the-sea at sunset!
(but that's another story!)
her ooak leather bags are highly sought after
and don't linger long in her etsy shop!
so i contacted Stacy, to inquire if she perhaps,
had something just for me....
she sent me a few leather swatches to choose from,
i knew right away which one would be mine!
i fell in love with it instantly
it was one of the most lovely, pieces of variegated leather
that i had ever seen ~
besides having all the shades of my fall/winter closet ~
it reminded me of the sea!
imagine my dears ~ a sea bag!!
i asked if she could also incorporate a grey lace embellishment
i sent to her
and if she could give it an organic, whimsy feel...
it wasn't long before my beauteous bag arrived!
i knew it would be fabulous
it absolutely was!
to christen my bag ~
i added a sprinkle of bead embellishments
a few moonstones, crystals, sequins and grey freshwater pearls.
i also dusted the leather with a sparkle leather wash...
it's like a little fizz :)
subtle, but there!
everywhere i carry my sea bag,
other kindred hearts
stop and tell me how lovely it is
and to that,
i wonderfully agree:)
thank you dear Stacy,
i ADORE my sea bag!
i ADORE my sea bag!
