when it comes to friends. Happy lunar New Year. I know i've mentioned it here loads of times, but i really do have the most wonderful friends. It makes me a little misty just thinking about it.
I'm just going to say that i REALLY scored in the friend department. The rattan handles above is just a gift from one of my lovely friends who happens to be amazing and so talented, i could gush about her for hours.
I found talented Maho Kaneko's creations via her book "Handmade bags and pouch CITE" ~ became a big fan and fell in love with her handbags and rattan bag handles. I am so LUCKY that my sweet friend, Mie Horiuchi, from Tokyo took the time and trouble to gift me one of her handles! This rattan bag handles is so well-made and maybe it's just me, but i think it's too beautiful for words. Truly.
I am head over heels for the sweet creations by Maho Kaneko of CITE. She sews such beautiful and colorful bags and accessories out of gorgeous fabrics and handmade bag handles. Here are some of her creations (Photo's courtesy of CITE).
Happy Snake Year sweet friends.
May it be full of joy and peace!
I left town driving home to celebrate and spend some time with family and love ones.
