Just got back from the beach. What an amazingly perfect Sunday. I woke up super early, went for a long run with my friend (Baby B), finally finished my bright blue clutch, went to South Bay beach with a bunch of friends, and then watched the sunset in a small beach bar we found in the South of the Island. Nothing beats a combination of a jug (or two or three :) of PIMMs, good friends, sunset and a warm breeze + the knowledge that the summer is just starting. Happy days!
So back to the clutch: it's sky blue, it's leather and I made it! I know, I know it's not exactly a Celine bag, but nothing is more amazing than creating something from scratch with your own hands. The smell of leather, the leisurely slow pace of the stitching process, the pattern cutting, the final polishing of the edges - the whole process is magical and extremely soothingly relaxing. I have to say a big thank you the Fungus workshop for letting me experience this.
P.S. I always have end up looking very sulky when I try and take a photo of myself and this one really cracks me up: It's a mix of Blue Steel and Sulky Monkey :)
Have a nice week and a very big thank you for all your comments on the last 2 posts!
