And these are the fabric bags I bought from Claudia Aden at the art show. To read more about where she gets this free designer fabric (yes, free!), check out Fabmo.org. I'm trying to get a link to more photos of her bags online, but in the meantime if you would like to contact her, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know I said this already, but I adore fabric bags. Oh, who am I kidding? I have a thing for bags, period. If I won the lottery I'd have a closet full of Coach purses.
This painting is by my older sister, Feltypants. It's a painting of a photograph of the two of us in the kiddie pool at our Grandmother's house many, many years ago (I'm the one in middle in the blue bikini top). I have great memories of that pool, and of swimming in general as a kid. I used to pretend to be a mermaid. I still love to swim and have a nice pool in my apartment complex, but don't want my neighbors to see me in my bathing suit. Maybe this summer I'll get over that fear.
Hope you're having a great day.
