It was a busy week here at Waterstone. I’m not sure if it’s the warmer weather or if it’s the US pulling out of this awful recession. Whatever it is, it’s a welcome sight. Each item I sell is thrilling to me. The fact that I can actually create things that I love and sell them to others is affirmation that I’m on the right path. I can’t tell you how wonderful that feels.

I didn’t have much time for photography this week, which sucks. Maybe next week. This is my picture of my beautiful bouquet of cilantro. I decided a long time ago that my grocery store purchased parsley and cilantro lasts longer than any roses I’ll ever get from the hubs. This, in turn, thrills him. For a mere .33 I’m covered on “flowers” for the week.
From the studio…
This week I worked on adding more bags to the shop. I am SO loving the brick backdrop we began using for photographing my bags. Speaking of the bags, they are all created using reclaimed leather. You can click on the picture for more information.

  • I love, love, love the bags! They are so beautiful…. and I’m not even a “bag person.” (bag lady? that doesn’t sound right)

  • So, of course I clicked on the green bag because it’s so beautiful, and I see it closes with a magnetic clasp. I never buy bags like that because my purse is always full of little items, and I once had it spill all over the bus floor… so now I stick with zippers. Just a thought. I’m sure A LOT of thought goes into the design – and I’m definitely no authority on purse-making.
