...sea bag...

...i willingly admit
i. am. a. seeker.
of  unique,
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.
i looked
i looked...
until i figured out,
what i searching for, just wasn't out there.

go figure.
so this is the tale of a most beauteous leather and lace bag
and how
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...
she agreed, 
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! 
next up ~
i'll be sharing a tutorial
