9 reasons why...

This is just a sneak peak of our little photoshoot this weekend. A big thank you to Catarina, Francesca and Emil for modeling and Marlon Fortes for photographing the esquilos. We had lots of fun even though we almost melted because it was so hot. Vintage dresses and accessories courtesy of me.

Back in the big smoke for the afternoon and just enough to get to the studio and computer. Lots of new purses on the way... maybe this weekend I´ll have the time to photograph and post them... meanwhile, one new purse to show, some tranquility and hopefully some peace of mind.

Lace me up, stripe me down

Long before there was time we had the time for everything. Some say the more we do the more we have time for...time. Some new purses using market crochet and gift fabrics.
