Feminine Fashionable Function

Growing up in a family where both my parents were artisans in their own right {as a hobby/home company}, I've come truly appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of handcrafted things.

While I don't have a lick of talent in this area, I'm somewhat familiar with woodworking, carving, and painting. Leatherwork is something I'm in awe of...especially when the beauty is crafted into something fashionable, feminine, and function, like a handpurse!

I don't know this artist, but she's certainly talented; check out these beauties from Etsy seller TanyaWork:
Wow- while I've had an affinity for my pebbled leather Coach bags, I'd say these purses take the cake!
