I recently blogged about a lovely book I own which is entitled, Playing with Books, The Art of Upcylcing, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book. My absolute favorite item shown was a cute little handbag made out of a book.
Well, lo and behold, there is a wonderfully talented craftsperson named Autumn who has a shop on Etsy called Bibliobags, where she sells just such handmade handbags. Not only does she make the grooviest purses you've ever seen, she photographs each one with an appropriate theme, i.e., Snow White, an aproned chef, sixties secretary, etc...
My favorite bibliobag is this one, Sherlock Holmes. You can tell just from looking at her photos that she puts lots of care and love into each bag she makes. Have a look at the photos and then I'm sure you'll want to head on over to her shop to see some of her other purses!

I just checked out the items on the front page of Etsy today and discovered a really talented felting artist from Vilnius, Lithuania. Her name is Grazina and she has been felting for a couple of years. You can tell that she really loves what she is doing and she is so VERY talented.
Please go check out her shop, Grazim, and see what all she has on offer. All you need to do is let her know what size you would like her to make for you. Honestly, I'm starting to save my pennies now to buy a pair, but the problem is deciding which pair to buy.
I'll let her beautiful photos speak for themselves! I especially love the ones with the little curly bits at the back! How clever.
These are just a few of the ones I would love to own from her shop....decisions, decisions, decisions....(I have blisters on both my feet today from wearing a pair of high heels yesterday and I would LOVE to have a pair of these RIGHT NOW!!)
