Your beach bag is a jewel. Love the fabrics you used, and the button just finishes everything off, and ties it all together.

And, P.S. I never saw your other header, but I like the one you have up now.


Oh..this bag is wonderful Vicki! I used to have a beach bag shaped much the same...but it had no where near the charm of this lovely treasure!


Gorgeous. Excellent work. I love it.


Vicki-oh my goodness I love this bag. It is simply dreamy. I love the button and the raffia handle! And the fabrics are exquisite. Thank you for the awesome inspiration, as always.


Oh my gosh, this bag is great. I am in love with the colors and fabrics. It has a cottage by the beach feel to it. I would have never thought of using raffie as handles but it looks great.


I absolutely adore your fabric choices for this bag and I love that you used it with the lovely vintage button for your header!

Thank you for giving my blog a notice, and for linking me, what friendship and kindness there is in this cyber space world, with signs like this the futuristic world looks more then cold and unreal to the human spirit. Again, your gestrue means alot to me.

Vicki, your new look is very fresh & cheerful, just like that cute bag you've made. I like the lining you choose. As always your hard work sure has paid off.

Your beach bag is really beautiful. Thank you so much for letting us know about the "creative daisy". I went directly over to her website and ordered what I'm sure will be the perfect custom patchwork purse.


My kids will be pulling on my arms and legs any second now too, so I'll be quick:

1.Love the header!! Not too big me thinks.
2.You are so funny, haha, the woman behind the cutain, levers and dials going crazy...
3.LOVE your tote!! Oh my gosh, it's so cute.
4.Can't wait to see your mice and other surprises!!


I love the bag! So fresh and pretty!


Love the header,love the bag,love the blog!



How surprised I was to see that button...I have the same one(s), only in pink and blue!

I really enjoy your blog. I wonder if you could tell me how you changed your header? I'm gearing up to give my site a makeover too. I sure understand what a time vacuum this blogging thing can be! But it's changed my world...I'm SO inspired.

I'll keep reading. Smiles, Aurora

REPLY: There should be a page that allows you to select your image. You might try reading the FAQ's, I've found out a lot of helpful things that way. Good Luck!


Love the new look! The bag is wonderful...can almost smell the sea breeze...


Oh yes, I love that bag...I'm a sucker for ric-rac too!


The beach hag is just perfect, it has that summer feel for sure, love those raffia handles :)
