Let's start with the leather stuff. I don't have a need for showing you everything from my holiday, but you must see my leather bargains. A couple of years ago my husband gave me a red leather bag. I don't have many leather bags, but mostly fabric bags. Not that I don't like leather, but I can't buy every bag I like. Especially not the Italien ones, which are being sold in a shop in my town. The shop has so many different models in so many colours. Then there was the market in Firenze..... At least twenty different places to buy leather bags from this particular manufacturer! My sister and I were in heaven!!! So many models, so many colours and the prices were even better!! The hardest part was to choose, which bag to buy. Therefore my sister and I went by train to Firenze a couple of days later...
I have been crazy with this purple colour for such a long time. I have been looking every time, I was in the local shop.
On our first day in Firenze we passed a small studio and there it was. The red leather jacket made just for me. I went to the shop to take a look and was not going to buy at all. The jacket fitted me perfect and my husband liked it! I guess it is his fault, that I feel like the most spoiled woman on earth!
This brown shoulder bag was my first bargain and I really needed that instead of my very old and dusty rucksack. I don't like spending too much money on clothes and prefer to buy my sisters design. I feel that these bargains are unnecessary luxury - it doesn't keep my from being very happy! Just had to share it with you.
Then it's time for the note books.
It was so great to sew again! Because of the Danish summer heat it is difficult to sit in my craftingroom on second floor. Yesterday I had to. I made these two vintage note books. I hope to continue with this project soon.
All for now - have a nice day!
