Long ago, I shared the $2 Benetton suede coat that I scored at Englishtown Auction. I have touched it numerous times trying to figure out what I wanted to do and then I was in a swap on Swap-Bot about a tote bag and I said voila!

Here are some pics, I even used the strap of the coat. The lining is from a sheet that I thrifted that has artwork and french words.

And just so you can share in some of the excitement that is our backyard, I thought I would share some of the deer that were frolicking the other day.

This one was a bit camera shy once she saw me in the window, so she started moving quite quickly. 🙂
