Two more Summer Water bags: little backpacks for summer adventures. The blue fabric was tentatively called "Bunny Craze" by Caitlin, which I love. The pink was 1990s inspired and has hidden secrets in it. These aren't lined but they are sturdy! Gold toned hardware, cotton rope. $28 each.
Yesterday dearest Sonja left for the west leaving behind a trail of treasures for us and part of her life stored away in boxes in her storage facility (that is, Geoff's and my basement). A few pieces of Coe & Waito ceramics to add to my beautiful collection: a broken piece of an owl lamp (I love it on its own) and a plate, a few teeny tiny zines by Selena Wong, and a vintage book called Treasury of Kittens. Amazing. One should always have talented artists in one's life -- they give the best (and most unexpected) presents.
Geoff has already used the book for inspiration for a drawing.
heleen: I hope you like it, if you do read it! I've heard good things about I Capture the Castle and should like to read it for myself.
Lisa PN: Yes! It's a great book to read in one's teens! I don't mind one little bit and that is very kind of you!
kelly: That's amazing! I was hoping someone would recognize it. You get a point for that, for sure. Oh, I know, Neely is so frustrating!
roberta jane: I'm so glad you agree with me! It's so nice to be able to share a beloved book with others!
Lexie, Little Boat: Thank you! Unfortunately Erin (Atlantic Treefox) went out and bought it and found it too sheer. I guess that when you get a pedicure in a salon they can apply the polish in a thicker way. Just a warning!
kater: My favourite peach polish is actually Tart Deco by Essie, which is less sheer. I'm glad you like the kitty paw paws!
Mallory: Yes! What's the point? There are probably a few things I'm embarrassed about, but I try to just embrace it. We're smart ladies! We like good things and terrible things and there is no need for shame!
My Bat Lightning Heart: Thank you! That is sweet of you to say.
karen: Oh, I should look for the audio book! I'm so glad you agree.
danielle and dinosaur toes: I mentioned this above but someone else tried this colour and found it too sheer. Just FYI! I don't find it to be pink at all, but elsewhere on the internet it looks quite pink. And thanks for the sweet words about Summer Water -- I am in love with Caitlin's work, for sure.
iwishihadtaste: I have, but thanks for sending it along! I get a kick out of it every time.
