Hello cyber friends - I have not left! truly! I had my knee replacement surgery two weeks ago and am climbing back. I won't bore you with all the medical stuff because many of you have traveled this road or other such roads and it's pretty much just keep climbing. Long, slow and a bit painful. That's pretty much it. I wanted to say Hi!, I'm on the rebound and I wanted to share something that I'm in love with. Over a month ago I found an Amsterdam artist, Leslie Oschmann while cruising the internet for a birthday present for myself. My husband was after me to find something I wanted and to be truthful, I couldn't think of anything I needed, wanted. But I cruised. I stumbled across some images of the most amazing tote bags. As I researched them, I discovered Leslie Oschmann and her unique bags. She sources markets in Holland and Belgium for vintage oil paintings and repurposes them into gorgeous bags. Bingo! These had my name all over them, vintage, repurposed, paintings? what not to love. Jim loved them too, so yesterday my bag arrived. Great care and quality materials are used to juxtapose these paintings into a very unique 'one of a kind' bag that will only get richer with time. Happy Birthday to me!! A picture of both sides hanging on my new friend 'the crutch'.
Will be back here with some more news later. Be well!
