The quality control team over Little Orange Kitchen Studio rejected the extra large wallet pictured above. It was deemed un-saleable since it closed a little crooked and there was a tiny fleck of something in the vinyl. It was put in the reject box and now the proprietress gets to tote it around.
Thank God for small favors. She loves it.
In other wallet news...I just have to show two.
This one sold right out of the gate tonight at farmer's market, but I had to get a shot of it...excuse the glare. I love how the four strips on the left are all from different sources and you'd think they would clash horribly, but somehow they all collided to make a match. I also love the black and white on the end. It's from a 1965 book on needlepoint. I may be overdoing the tearing of various papers, but I love the look.
I've been striking out a bit on the "spend not one dime" challenge this week...it's been one of those nutty weeks, but spending has been kept to a minimum and I did manage to choose a natural foods grocer to fill in where Farmer's Market can't and decided that Mark's soda purchases will happen at the Webster Avenue market, which just happens to be locally owned by a woman I know.
Aren't strawberries great? I love June for this reason...strawberries and Greek yogurt...who says you can't fall in love after 40?
