It's Vintage!


woke up to a foggy morning.
wishing for spring and everlasting flowers,
but for now, I will settle for this painting and 
photo via an apple a day.
a purse made with vintage fabric
 from Forestbound

I was reading the story behind the creator of these purses. She is a young entrepreneur who has been self-employed since college!

 You should check out her limited collection of bags made with salvaged farm grain sacks dating back to the early 1900's!

  13. Howdy Elisa,
    gonna send you a "vintage" story on hotmail.

    We herited some old Philips radio stuff from my late father in law, that ended in a great story.

    It just came to my mind reading your vintage post.

    Spring's coming, and we're going for it in about five weeks from now !

  14. I love your foggy morning photo!! It looks so mysterious! What a great find! I'm so inspired that Forestbound's creator has been self employed since graduating from college.
