...the vintagey-frenchy-london-cool tote & designing for high school...

...thanks for all your thoughts on the old farm table yesterday....
...i'm still undecided, but we are heading to france at the end of the week so thought perhaps...as i'm wandering sans kiddos {they'll be buying baguette & vino with their dad}...through some old brocante i may stumble upon an old dusty box of knobs & the perfect one will be just waiting for me...

so...onto my other life
...as some of you may know...our biggest kiddo is about to embark on the road that is *highschool*
...i am soo much more ok with this whole teenage invasion growing up & moving on thing than i was a month ago even...when she was finishing primary school
...& i truely did have to *get a grip* on the whole thing as i have two other gorgeous kiddos who are still in p.s
....who do still want me to drop them to school & to be waiting at the gate for them come 3:30

...so to show miss.ella how into the whole h.s transition i am i have asked her to design herself a cool-one-off vintagey frenchy london-cool style school tote...
...& yep i am clutching again....at what she may today think is cool
...you see, the other thing about kiddos who are going into h.s is....they are slightly flippant prone to changing their minds endlessly from time to time...
...ella may go from this...

..to this...

...or this...as the day progresses...

...so i don't mind if she's going all beach vintage...chic frenchy or london cool in her design
...i just wanna make it- to show anyone that is listening how i am soo able to run with change how supportive & embracing i am of the change that is about to invade our house

...anyhoo...she's still thinking & designing...so we did a bit of a trial bag with one of her designs...

...her design....& my new fave fabric....
...so of course this *practice bag* went to the zoo with me yesterday

...oh i know that doesn't seem to support my whole "your bag- your h.s- i'm lovin your new life where i'm not waiting at the gate for you...e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y ...as i always have..." kinda attitude...
...but remember ...it's a *pratice bag*
...& she's waaay to cool for this french looking shopping tote anyhow...

...what d'ya think oh trusty readers & friends...

...so it's now my bag...a trial bag...
...& hers will be soo much better...& cooler

...~& will be made with all my love & embracing of the huge & wonderful  journey that is highschool...



  1. gonna make me one in the savycity sewing room ....

    love having a new friend

  2. oh, i love your bag! very cool and cute...even it's not quite cool enough for a high schooler to carry!

  3. I'm totally there with
    you....Although mine will
    be starting her second
    year of h.s.....We are
    on the hunt for the perfect
    bag, as the perfect bag
    from last year just isn't
    as perfect as she thought
    it would be! Love the
    trial bag and look forward
    to what she ends up with : )
    Hang in there, Mama!

  5. Gorgeous bag...totally love it, but I hear ya, mine is starting her last year of hs and we have been search for her favorite college all summer long. I can tell you that the 'apron strings' are so hard to untie even as I know that she is maturing and heading into her last year....ughhh, what happen to the days w/diapers? It goes by so fast. Good luck on your daughters "perfect" bag for her new walk into hs! xoxo Beth
