Dupioni Silk clutches

For handcrafted clutches with exquisite dupioni silk in vibrant colors, look no further than Karina’s shop SimplyClutch.  Karina lives in my one of my favorite places on Earth, San Diego!  My most favorite place in San Diego is the Torrey Pine GliderPort.  I love sitting at the outdoor cafe having lunch and watching the hang gliders.  If you are not in San Diego any time soon, no worries since Karina has an online shop on Etsy.

I love this bright pop of color!

Elegant Clutches

I’ve been reading stories about brides getting married on 12/12/12, and my dear friend Yvonne is one them!  And that reminded me of the elegant clutches made by Cynthia at Belle Jou Jou.  Her massive collection is just chockful of clutches made with sumptuous materials like lace, satin, silk and brocade.

Gorgeous bride with her equally gorgeous clutch by Cynthia!

Getting our home and ourselves in the holiday spirit. Happy Holidays to you all! This is what Christmas at our home in Ho Chi Minh City looks like this year.

Went.Did.Done

Who knew Vietnamese elves smoke?  Ok, I should’ve known that since the whole nation of Vietnamese boys and men light up like Mad Men.  Well, I’ve gone and done it.  After receiving a little shock last year from a defective cheap strand of Christmas lights, I had to hire professionals to install lights.  A little bit about these cheap Christmas lights here:  these are the only options available, they are cheaply made, and you cannot connect them beginning-to-end to extend a long string of lights.  They all have the same female/male connector at the same end so that if you connect them, it fans outward from one spot.   Not so great if you are trying to string a long line of lights!

So these five elves showed up on their motorbikes.  It took them 7 hours, not including the requisite one hour lunch and siesta.  It was much less expensive…

Handmade clutches: the light and the dark

There are still many days for Christmas shopping, and if you still have a girl on your list, check out these clutches.  Aesthetically, these two shops offer bold prints and brocade fabrics.  However,  visually they are both quite different in their presentation.  Both are handmade with care!  The first shop is AnOrangeBlossomBag by Michelle.  Take a look at her clutches as well as her bags and totes.  Look for my favorite tote with the vintage inspired newspaper print of Paris.

Getting darker – another beautiful floral clutch.

Getting a little darker, but no less exquisite, are clutches beautifully handcrafted by Susan at Lulu Caswell Designs.  I love her clutches and the way they are captured on camera.

Makes you want to pull up a chair and join her for tea!
