HAUTE HANDBAGS

Finally, I got my copy of the new Haute Handbags! Deb Hodge's yummy bags are on the cover!
It couldn't have happened to a nicer, more gracious, more talented woman! I am so proud of her.
A close-up of some of the details that she uses in her bags. With silk ruffles, matching charms, burlap straps, Deb's bags are so recognizable. Her style is distinct and beautiful! The charms are made by the lovely Rita.
Another unique idea for putting a photo on a bag.
She can put ANY photo you wish on a bag. And Rita can make a matching charm. This picture is a vintage shot of Coronado. How adorable is that?
Another view of the cover shot. The starfish bag is my favorite.
And not only is Deb in this issue, but Val Hebert is as well, with her amazing felted purses.
Each bag is a piece of art. She makes them from recycled wool sweaters.

As you can plainly see, we have some really talented people here in Coronado. I am so happy that both Deb and Val are in this issue. Do yourself a favor and pick it up today.

Congratulations to Val too, I just got back from Jo-ann and got my copy and guess what? I was wearing Debs dress, the ladies loved it and so I showed everybody the magazine. Chat chat chat. Ciao

These purses are fabulous!! I have never particularly liked fabric handbags but the 'haute handbags' have made a convert of me!! I like the starfish too and the photo is cute...I would never want one with my kids on it! lol!!

I just came from Julie's and sometimes a comment leads you to a blogger and so here I am, just snooping around, if you don't mind!! May leave a few more comments if time permits...

Have a happy weekend!!
