purses and kittens
I bought a new purse when I was in Iowa City. The style looked so familiar. Then I realized it was because I fell in love with this particular brand (Hardwear by Renee) at the Saturday Market in Portland back in ’07. However, I talked myself out of buying a purse that day because I had bought a large shoulder bag from another artist, and didn’t think I needed to buy two bags in one day. Imagine my surprise to see the same purses in a gallery in Iowa City. (I checked and they are made in Oregon.) Clearly this is a love that was meant to be. (Also, I love my red one even more than the green one I was going to buy back then.)
I know, you’re wondering what on earth my new purse has to do with kittens. Well, the purse I bought is large enough to fit my Nikon. Yay! So now I carry it around with me – which means that I had my camera when Atlas and I walked into Nature’s Pet to see that they had three kittens looking for homes. Three very cute kittens.
