Bags - Some Finished

Here is a sample of my bags that will be at the farmer's market!! This weekend I was able to get more done than I expected to and hopefully even more will get done during the week. 
The other day I watched the movie Nanny McPhee Returns with the kids. I must tell you that I wanted all of Mrs. Green's (Maggie Gyllenhall's character) clothes.
 Pretty country cottage floral skirts, embroidered peasant tops, and a kelly green jacket with satin ballerina pink lining were just some of the pretty things I saw. In fact I think Mrs. Green would appreciate these bags. 
The movie also has the coziest little cottage. So while the kids were fascinated by plot I was plotting decorating ideas. Are there movies that do this to you? 
Nanny McPhee Returns was just added to my list that already included Practical Magic, Amelie, and Because I Said So. All movies that I could watch for decorating and style ideas. 
So I think I may stop making bags for a bit - not long, just enough to decorate my house into a cozy summer cottage.

Adorable Purses!!
SO cute!
I LOVE the kitchen in the movie Practical Magic (I actually love the whole house) but that is my dream kitchen to a T.

Gorgeous bags Amanda, just beautiful!! :)
I watched Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead man's Chest last night, I have to say there weren't many decorating ideas in it but I do like Captain Sparrow!! ;)

Hello Amanda,
OMGosh...these are simply stunning. All the doilies and gorgeous cottage prints.

I'm in love!

Yes...I get inspired by movies also. I will be doing a post soon about a project inspired by 'The Holiday'.

Good luck at the market

I love them, and so well made too. I had the privilege of seeing and feeling them. I love how you lined them.
