It's a couple of posts late, but I finally made it. And I hope very much that you like it, because it's a little personal.
I am giving away, to one of you, one of my handmade Classic Bucket Bags. And in the spirit of summer and all things nautical, I made these two bags from classic striped ticking with red interior. They make a great "everyday" bag or a perfect tote. They're big and roomy and double stitched for durability. I carry my own every day, loaded down with my regular purse stuff plus a magazine or two, plus my breakfast, plus the mail....... you get the idea.
And.... I am giving the winner their choice of color! Blue and cream ticking or black and white ticking? Both bags have a big red bow attached with strings of sea shells hanging like a wind chime. Not a bow girl? Don't worry. It's just a pin and can easily be taken off or re-attached.
So, how do you enter to win? Simple. These bags bring to my mind a perfect summer day in the sand. Seagulls and hazy sunshine. Hammocks and shrimp po'boys. Big weathered porches on comfy beach cottages.
*Leave me a comment below and tell me: If you had a beach cottage of your own, what color would you paint the front door?
I will throw your names in a hat and draw a winner next Friday. Once the winner chooses a color, the other bag will be listed in my Etsy store for sell. Good luck, dolls!
