I have watched as little birds chatter and sing in the sun. They seem to be so happy just to have the sun's warmth and light. Nature seems to always be able to put things into perspective. Usually the small things are the ones we enjoy the most.

This purse is called "Small Pleasures" because it depicts a little bird on a branch which seems to be a "small pleasure", but, in truth gives me one of the greatest pleasures of peace and tranquility when I see it in nature. The purse is my way of stating that the greatest pleasures can be considered something we take for granted.

This purse is made of an off white water repellent cotton canvas on the outside and the inside is of a cotton fabric. The purse is decorated with a bird sitting on a branch that I have drawn and appliqued (using Ultra Suede) onto the front of the purse and the design wraps around to the back. The bag measures 12" wide by 12 1/2" tall and contains 3 large pockets on one side and a large zipper pocket on the other side, for all those things that generally end up in the bottom of the purse. It also has an adjustable handle so it can be easily carried.

*****The applique is created using Ultra Suede and the buttons are created of fallen wood so that no animals or trees are harmed creating my purses.

The flap on the top of the purse is secured with a magnetic snap and a large handmade wooden button is used to add contrast and texture to the appearance of the purse. Other handmade buttons are used to decorate the handle of the purse. ( Please note that the wood buttons will vary with the type of wood available.)

Everything has been double sewn and the stress areas have triple stitching. Stiff interfacing has been placed between the lining and outer fabrics to give the bag a very soft and yet durable feel.

Handmade at my cabin in the mountains of East Tennessee! My bags are inspired by the countryside around me. Quality Eco-friendly fabrics such as, ultra-suede, linen, and canvas are used in my bags. I use a heavy duty thread on my bags to ensure they will last for many years to come. Wooden buttons from fallen trees around my home are used to add a one of a kind rustic detail.

Each creation is handmade by me, in my home with no helpers. I pride my business on fashion, quality, and durability. Every bag is made to order, so each is a SPECIAL CREATION just for YOU!

Creating my bags is a time consuming, but rewarding process. I draw inspiration from fabrics and nature, then begin to draw out my design on paper. I create a pattern for the bag. After choosing the perfect colors and fabrics, I hand cut the bag, interface stiffener, strap, and appliques. The amount of interface stiffener that goes into my bags depends on the size and shape of the bag to give it structure so that it does not fold over. After the interface stiffener is applied, the intricate applique is cut and sewn by machine. Pockets and zippers are added where needed for function and ease of finding your items. Finally the pieces of the bag start to come together, adjustable straps, buttons, key chains, and other embellishments are added. I go into the woods near my home to collect fallen limbs for the buttons. I slice the buttons, drill the holes, and apply a sealant to bring out the natural beauty of the grain in the wood.

My bags are all packaged and shipped with care. I stuff them with gift tissue to ensure they don't get flattened during shipping. They arrive wrapped and tied with a bow. If you are giving as a gift the wrapping is already done!

As you can see, several hours of craftsmanship goes into each bag. So please be patient and know that I am taking my time to give YOUR SPECIAL CREATION the time and attention to detail that IT deserves.

This purse has plenty of room for a nice getaway or a shopping trip.

Thank you for stopping by my shop and I hope that you saw something that gave you a warm cozy feeling!
