They've both arrived in the desert











and so there had to be a little belt bag, too.

  1. Now, is coveting a bad thing? I mean, that leather! Those beads! The cut! The stitching. The color. Oh my.

    1. The little box got to her home the day before she did so I hope that leather smell greeted her and she does love it!

      Thanks so much for joining us on this venture.

  4. It was a long flight...and all I could think of was how excited I was to get home and open the box as I had already received a photo from my husband that THE BOX had arrived! Like a kid at Christmas...I opened it immediately upon arrival and WOW...how do words describe such beauty from a beauty??? I'm totally in love and know that this purse will be appreciated over the years just like my traveling bag. THANK YOU so much Susan. Words can't describe how much I'm in love with ANAM CARA!!! YOU are one amazing artist! xoxoxo (Not to mention the surprise belt bag! You are just too kind!!)

  5. Susan, what a beauty!!! No wonder that "our" Gotham Girl is loving it. I almost can feel the softness and the unique scent of the leather. As I said before, I love the bone beads.

    1. Carola, thank you so much ... I'm in love with all the different bone beads, too! I did add a few tiny brass ones just to shake things up a bit.

  9. I had to look up the meaning of the name and then it made my eyes well with tears ~ tender and beautiful. And the purse ~ every stitch, curve, pocket, flap, scar, and bead is perfect and perfect. No doubt it was loved in creation and will be equally loved in use.
