I don't know if it's epidemic, but something is definitely going around. I've got a case of it too.
Here's my latest symptom:
I acquired this "Foxy" in my recent travels in Idaho at Handmade. It's an Atenti bag of FAUX fox and FAUX ostritch (of course it's FAUX - remember I'm the one that won't even eat critters). The Atenti's are the creations of two Argentinian women and have lots of fun prints and textures.
I'm not a purse kind of gal - usually I just carry an REI travel wallet around. But, if it fits into a nice knitting project sized tote, well I'm all over that. And it's becoming a sickness...
Anyway, Carol has a beautiful selection of the Atenti bags at Handmade in Eagle, Idaho.
Look! A whole wall of Louisa Harding!
Thanks Carol - I really enjoyed my visit to the new store (she's looking fab in Online's (Linie 197) Zara jacket from the Fall 2006 collection) !
View from my windshield
Here's the main reason I wasn't able to check in while I was out on this last road trip. It was like this for over 400 miles in western Idaho. I flew into the thick of that terrible storm that hit the northwest right after Thanksgiving - the same one that tragically claimed the life of James Kim. I managed to track with that storm all the way to Tulsa, Oklahoma as it moved eastward. I kept both hands on the wheel and only had a few white knuckled moments along the way. But I just had no energy to go find a keyboard to click while I was out on the road this time. It's good to be home!
