This is RESERVED for Jane.

Life is a great performance with yourself in the key role.

This is a special occasion bag with an irresistible slender and petite silhouette --perfect for the theater, an art opening, a wedding, the opera--it's up to you...

The actors in this play are international:

Bedouin hand-embroidery--vintage, raspberry, from the Levantine.
Potato sack material--antique, from southern Germany.
Mudcloth--vintage, from Mali.
Handembroidery on linen--vintage, from the southern US.
Brocade--vintage, from Germany.
Tea-stained new linen, from Germany.
Normandy lace--antique, from the southern US.
Handwoven silk--new, from my town.
Togoan hand-dyed batik on damask, from Togo.

...and two wood buttons, one new European and the other a handcarved face from Madagascar--vintage. There is a dividing pocket in the lining. The shell of the bag has been lightly interfaced for body.

Garden of Joy is slender and petite, yet may carry your keys, money, and lipstick, a cell phone...what you consider vital for the moment.

It's unforgettable.
