Fall Purses

Fall Purses 019, originally uploaded by kelli320.

Photographer's note:

"Add this to my list of favorite purses of this fall. I love this heathered shade of green. It's not loud or dark, just perfect, in my opinion. The handles are a woven leather-like material that really work well with this purse."

Beautiful green wool purse~

New Bag! Black Coach Tote

New Bag! Black Coach Tote, originally uploaded by Just Caty.

This photographer says:

"It's the Coach Bonnie Leather Convertible bag. It's going to be used as a tote for college.

Once again, this bag is from the 30% off section from Macy's Coach area.

The inside is a candy pinkish red. It is a very gorgeous color and pairs nicely with the patent leather handle. The photo of course, does not do the inside satin justice!

I've grown fond of the items in the 30% off section. It's like a shelter for bags-that-people-didn't-want-at-full-price that just beckons to me.

Oh, this is my new photoshoot area. WIMBs and bag portraits are going to be attempted to be taken here. It is the top of my bookcase. I figured that it was more cleaner than the carpet, which is easier for me to take pictures of (so that Dad and Chris don't think I'm crazy) and I don't have to clean the bags later because of the germs that might have gotten on to it when I was taking the picture. Yes, I take very good care of my bags; no one knows how long I've had it because they always look brand new. And yes, I am obsessed with cleaning them. They are my children. Consider me like the Angelina Jolie of bags."

Tsuru: The Japanese Crane

Throughout history, birds have been viewed as animals of special value and have been endowed with meanings often drawn from legends and stories that have endured over many generations.

For the Japanese, the crane—or tsuru—is considered a national treasure, appearing in art, literature, and folklore. The Japanese regard the crane as a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled life span of a thousand years. It also represents fidelity, as Japanese cranes are known to mate for life. Over time, the crane has also evolved as a favorite subject of the Japanese tradition of paper folding—origami—as children and adults attempt to master this art.

Shortly after the end of World War II, the folded origami cranes came to symbolize a hope for peace through Sadako Sasaki and her unforgettable story of perseverance. Diagnosed with leukemia after being exposed to radiation after the bombing of Hiroshima, Sadako became determined to reach a goal of folding 1,000 cranes in hopes of being rewarded with health, happiness, and a world of eternal peace. Although she died before reaching her goal, the tradition of sending origami cranes to the Hiroshima memorial has endured as a symbol of the Japan’s ongoing wish for nuclear disarmament and world peace.
