.@VickiBatman - A painting turned #handbag? That's right! #fashion #accessories #MFRWorg #RLFblog

~Handbag Monday~

Today, I’m going to show off my Christmas gift to me. It’s from a shop called Swarm and is located overseas. I remember perusing a magazine and her handbags were featured. I thought this is way cool for, you see, the handbags are made from paintings. 

So I splurged when an email came my way from Swarm with free shipping. Check this out:

Don’t you love this boat scene?

Who would have thought? The handles are sturdy leather and stitched and fastened with a grommet as well. The whole bag is lined in a sturdy white canvas. There is a good-sized pocket sewn in as well.

Although may be a bit large for everyday use, I am going to carry it for a while and test it out.

What do you think? Would you carry a handbag made from an old painting?

Love the painting on the bag. How original. You're carrying a piece of art.

Hi, Sylvia! I feel the same way. I'm shifting everything to this one and shall see what kind of comments I receive. ox

Angela Adams said...

I have one word to say about that bag -- "awesome!"

vicki batman said...

Hi, Angela! *clapping hands* I'm so happy you like.

D'Ann said...

You know how I feel about handbags, but that is really neat. I might even be tempted if there were a Tim Cox or other western artist on it!

Rosie Gorham said...

Although I hate carrying a hand bag, I always enjoy looking at your designs. My girls would love these.

Karilyn Bentley said...

I don't even carry handbags, but might have to make an exception for this one. I love it! What a great idea!!

vicki batman said...

Hi, D'Ann! Now that's a good thought, but you wouldn't want to tear up his painting. However, I bet there are some old westerns out there that could be made into a bag.

Hi, Rose! I had to carry a mombag for so long, I didn't really appreciate changing except for church or parties. Ooh, send your girls over to tell me what they think! Thanks for posting.

Hi, Karilyn! I am always amazed by those of you who don't carry a handbag. What do you put your things in? Your lipstick?????

A creative lady used her creativeness and figured out what she could do with it. I'm constantly amazed by people and their genius. Hugs!

Melissa Keir said...

I checked out the website. How interesting! I'm sure you will get a lot of compliments on it!

vicki batman said...

Hi, Melissa! I think her work is interesting. I only wish my bag was a big smaller, but haven't test driven it much to see for sure. Hugs.

Liese said...

Very original! More people can see it and enjoy it than if it were hung on a wall! You're now a walking museum!


Susan Day said...

I bet you get stopped a lot and asked where you got it from! It's delightful and so unique.

vicki batman said...

Hi, Liese! I hadn't thought about being a walking museum. That's pretty funny.

Hi, Susan! Yesterday at Sam's the cashier was scanning away and commented on the bag. It's so different from what one sees in a store. Thanks for posting.
