Déjà vu all over again

As many of you know, in addition to being a fabriholic, patternaholic and shoeaholic I am also a purseaholic! What can I say? I am just a little bit compulsive! As I was reading one of my favorite purse blogs this morning, I came across this:


It’s a lovely bag from Moe Bags. Look familiar? Let me refresh your memory:

I had originally thought to make this bag in velvet but I think the leather is fabulous and better suited for an everyday bag.

    I don’t really have anything to say about the bag. It’s just that it’s *so great* having your blog to read again. I’m so happy you’re blogging again. Now I have a reason to get up every morning. Okay, I’m not quite that happy, but still happy.

  4. I’m not feeling that bag. Sorry….I require something with significantly more space to hold my three kids’ junk.

    The 40’s hats would be perfect with a feather or two… 😛
