My newest obsession.........

Re-habbing vintage Coach bags! What does that entail?
I'm so glad you asked? It starts by finding an older bag at a great price.....does it look flattened, scratched, sad in general?
Then that's the bag for me! I wash them, dry them and re-shape them, condition them and then they're ready to go.
Some I keep (too and some I sell...yay!
The older Coach bags are built to last and such classics.
Keep your eyes open when you go into your local thrifts, they'll be in the case under lock and key and if you're lucky like I was yesterday you'll find two at the same time! I found the tan bag pictured above along with the RARE green Willis bag at the same thrift!
They're sunning themselves today and relaxing.
Some hang out laundry, I hang out bags!
So what's your latest obsession?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Happy happy Sunday~~~~~~some progress

The studio is coming along.....never said I was gonna be quick about it...LOL!

Miss Sassy on the right is wearing her new silk and lace bonnet that I found at the flea today for $3....she's so happy now.

My best find of the week (well, of last week) was this beautiful wool area rug for my studio. I never thought I would find just the right one and truth be told this one is a bit large for my room. But I remained undaunted and simply folded one edge under my cabinets because it's not a super thick rug but oh the colors! It covers the floor and is oh so shabby chic! I was thrilled to find it.

They may have lost their heads but can still be pretty with pearls and flowers.........

I still have some more work in this room but it's already functioning so much better for me.
I'll be back soon to show some flea market treasures.
