Hi!  I'm Elise.  Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., I now live in the Green Mountains of Vermont with a very supportive significant other, we'll call him "T", and a very furry and equally supportive female Alaskan Malamute, Rory.

Through my Etsy Shop, I sell quality, handmade bags and accessories that are unique, practical, and above all, well-made. Tote bags, makeup bags, clutches and cross body bags- I craft and package every item with the amount of time and detail it deserves.

My love of sewing, creativity, and handbags began at a young age. I learned how to sew on a child size Singer alongside my mother, who in the early 1990s was determined to furnish our new home in Laura Ashley style from top to bottom (and furnished her shoulder with a classic Dooney & Bourke).  She made drapes, throw pillows, and even floral arrangements that made our house the home that lives on in my memories today.  It was from her that I learned and inherited my appreciation for quality, functionality, and simplicity.

Along with my projects, I'll also share my interesting finds: recipes, remedies, and whatever else grabs me.  Follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Etsy to see what else I find!
