Monday, Monday...

Monday, June 20, 2016


You know what's truly great?  Monday.  

I know.  You're probably thinking "What?  Monday?  Girl, you're crazy!"

But hear me out.  

It's summer.  The sky is blue.  I had the day off.  I used my day to crochet a TON of new stuff for my etsy shop.  I had an interview and was offered my first REAL big-kid job (still haven't decided if I should take it, because when that interview was over, I got an email from another school asking for an interview tomorrow!).  I have a giant cupcake.  I have time to take a bubble bath.  

Oh, and a month or so ago, I received an email from a friend of my friend Meri (of Gardens of the Sun).  It was from a lovely lady named Henny, who lives on the island of West Java and she wanted to make me a handbag!  We chatted a bit and decided on her fabulous 2-in-1 foldover clutch.  First, let me tell you that my wanderlust was kicked into hyperdrive when I received mail from Indonesia.  Second, this bag is tops! The fabrics are soft and go together perfectly, it is beautifully made, and I seriously can't decide if I prefer it as a clutch or a shoulder bag.  The tassel zipper is the perfect finishing touch!  

... and guess what?  If you like the print fabric Henny used for my clutch, keep your eyes peeled... there may be a matching freebie in the works for you soon...  


What's sustainable about this outfit? 
: the bag was handmade
: the necklace was handmade from found items
