A Bird and a Bag ...

I have just discovered the beautiful bags (and blog) of Wendren from The Wren Design. She is a South African graphic artist who designs and makes seriously cute bags. Here are some of my favourites:
What's not to love? It is red and big!

I just love this bird! It clips around your wrist (or onto your handbag).

My personal favourite. Shweshwe (the type of fabric) is so truly South African. This one would look great with jeans, and that adorable little pouch on it contains lavender from Franschhoek to keep the bag lovely and fragrant ...

Oh these are gorgeous!!! Good find Anairam! Wendren's shop is definitely being added to my Etsy faves for the time when I need a new bag!

Bag #3 is my favorite too - and I love the thought of including a little pouch of lavender. The fabric is gorgeous.

ooooo, the last one is my favorite too. I also have one of her little birds and I absolutely love it!

karina - Yes, the red one caught my eye first - and I really like the circle pattern!
kendalee - Oh yes, and when I think about all the beautiful things out there that I do NOT know about! It makes me feel a bit frantic in a quite unBuddhist manner!
stephanie - Glad you like that one too! I used to have a blue shweshwe pinafore many years ago ...
mrs.french - Oh lucky you - I think those birds are so cute! The only problem is I always carry such a lot of stuff with me, that the little bird on its own will really not be enough!
