Leaving On A Jet Plane.

And I don’t know when I’ll be back again. Especially if I get to lug around this beauty of a satchel. Take me away to that special place for the weekend while I pack my favorite duds in the Mullholland Brothers Weekend Bag. The Larait leather is the most beautiful color skin (sorry animal activists!). It’s stylish, right-on-trend, and will last a lifetime if you take it to the most amazing locales! Zappos says there’s only one left in this leather/color combination… first one there wins the prize! The Stout goes to the close second.

Totally ready for my next trip with this weekend bag!

To Market to Market to Buy a…

A trip to the South of France, Monaco and hopefully a hop over to see my friends Matt and Julie in Tiblisi is in the works. I had visited France once before and found I needed a bigger and more chic travel tote. This French market bag from Maison de Kristine is a no brainer as a tote for the local farmers market and even as a travel hand bag to stash any souvenirs, sunglasses, camera, and Pashmina scarf. I could also put it to good use at the Washington Design Center when carrying samples and swatches. I’m ordering it tomorrow. Gotta feed my hand bag addiction! =)

To Market to Market.

I just got back from a lovely week with friends and significant dogs in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. I’ve got a golden tan, fantastic memories, a full digital camera card, and token tee shirt from famous Grays Family Store. While shopping around the beach shops on a cloudy day, I also came across an inexpensive classic French tote on sale for just $25! Perfect for a towel, iPod, sunscreen or veggies from the local market. However, I forgot to pick one up. Always on search for wonderful things, the recent issue of  Coastal Living Magazine mentions the company The French Basketeer’s line of cute and well made versions.
