Saturday - while Bud & Truett went to the field to work (Truett loves working with his daddy & looks forward to it all week) - I took June to the Soda City Farmers Market. It was a bright, sparkly fall day and as I pushed her stroller towards the market, I thought to myself, this is exactly how I used to picture motherhood before I had children ; )
I was there for us to putter and munch on breakfasty foods, but I was also on a mini-mission. I'd long been wanting to see the bags of Nana by Sally. My girlfriend Liz has a change purse made of vintage fabric by Sally, and she said all of her other creations were just as cool and beautiful.
They are. The one I fell madly in love with happens to be called the Soda City tote and is gorgeous. I asked her to describe what Horween leather was exactly, and she said it's a thick, durable leather that's mostly been used in men's design wear, but she loves it for it's tough construction and beautiful wear over the years.
All of her bags are handmade and you can even see the extra stitching in the Horween bags (they cannot be lined because the leather is too thick).
I know it's a splurge, but it's what I'm saving up for now. If you get a chance, go visit her etsy shop and here are a few of my other favorites: another tote (this one a bit sleeker), a fabric and leather crossbody (check out the inside!) & these envelope clutches.
