I found a great artist via Loobylu this morning.
Her name is Laura; her store is Laura's House of the Red Shoes; and her bags are fabulous!
I particularly like this one... and this one. I bet one of these (especially the first) would make a girl melt as a Valentine's Day gift... hint, hint...
I went antiquing yesterday afternoon and found that I have developed some collecting obsessions.... vintage sewing books, linen napkins and tablecloths, and vintage purses. I actually didn't get a purse but there were several that I really wanted....but I was trying to behave myself.
Speaking of bags...I'm also enjoying The Bag Blog via Alex, the Girl.
