Freshly Picked Fall


It came! It came! My custom bag from Freshly Picked! I've been eying Susan's shop for a year now but couldn't make a decision on which piece I wanted most. So one day I entered a contest at her blog and I won!
Susan let me choose anything from her store or she would make me a custom piece. Well, bespoke is my middle name (Danger is so 1997,) so I selected the mod jelly beans. I thought the fabric was really cute: a fine wale cord with just the perfect palette for Fall. I love how she included a Freshly Picked matching wallet.
I'm crazy for a well made accessory and Susan's are the hotness. I can't wait for Fall to start sporting my sweaters, boots, and a cool new bag. Let's be honest, I'm so tired of Summer, and August in particular. Any more 100 degree days are like August saying, "SUCK IT WORLD." I hate you right back, August.


I've been so inspired by Susan's awesomeness that I'm going to hand make something to auction off for a Nie benefit in September, stay tuned for that. Eh, don't stay super tuned because it's a couple weeks away and there's no need for people to be calling CPS on you because you're glued to The Jet Set and your ragamuffin children have been living off of the scraps of food behind the fridge.



Yay, Freshly Picked!

I am in love with this bag... I don't know if that is truly possible but I figure since I haven't found a man to love me this bag just might do a fine job.

Oh I love this bag! I finally realized how much I now love purses and my collection is growing. Especially that I no longer need a diaper bag. I wish I could make stuff. So jealous

I came over to congratulate you on your win at TAMN's blog, and I find you won something ELSE?

You live a charmed life. Either that or you're just seriously blessed.

Excellent choice on the bag, btw.

This is my first time here and I find your blog very entertaining. And yes, congratulations on the SSB win. I too am a winner, the first runner up actually on the first give away. And now that she's really coming out with some cool give aways I think that was all the luck I had.

The purse is beautiful. I love bags.. and shoes... and clothes... and chocolate. And September is foreboding because that means back to school back to school.... to prove to my husband that I'm not a fool.
