Finds - Bag Ladies

This week I am putting the spotlight on some of my fellow CAB team members and their colorful, interesting and unique creations. Starting with ApolloHillsCrafts and this quilted and appliqued purse in some of my favorite colors - I with my mums were ever this bright!

A cute little clutch for a night on the town - CottageCarries has lots of little purses with cute embellishments many with a vintage charm that would make them perfect for carrying when out in old school evening wear. And of course they also fit nicely in a larger tote when you're running errands and wishing you were out on the town.

I never really tire of bright florals, They fit my wardrobe and are eye catching while carrying them around. And shouldn't we still be stunning when out grocery shopping? Hippopotamusgifts made this market bag sleek enough for urse duty, but big enough for food too.

What if you love to be really really organized? Hmmmbymel has modern totes with a plethora of pockets for separating all your stuff in to little compartments (and we all know, nothing is more annoying than digging through your purse after that ringing phone). One could even pick up coordinating pouches and glasses case, or a wine bag with a hunky man on it!

If color is your thing, tote a rainbow with you and make every outfit bright and cheerful! Stitchuation has many totes and pouches in bright prints, some are even reversible. Functional is after all more useful if it's also fun...

And of course an upcycled purse, it's tough for me to do a blog post without something recycled in it! A very interesting and distinctive reuse of an old men's suit from Bagsanew (who claims to live in Haven, but one look in her shop I'd say it's more like Heaven). Her shop has a variety of very different reused bags, sewn painted, felt and more!
