review / snappy sturdy tote bag & a pretty pocket watch necklace

i love when things are both practical and pretty. the products featured today fall into that category. i can already tell these two items are going to be long-time favorites of mine.



salinya of fabric and handle creates gorgeous natural bags perfect for every day hauling. she and her crew kindly sent me the quint tote for review (all the way from thailand!). it's unlike anything i currently have. i love the simple, streamlined design, the interior pocket for important handy things and the roomy exterior for a plethora of library books and a water bottle. the material is sturdy and resilient. my favorite thing about the tote are the optional snaps that allow you to switch the length of the leather straps. genius! once snapped into place, the tote can carry a sizeable load. exactly what i need for the farmer's market this summer.



heidi of chick hardware is a mother of three and runs her business from home. she is continuously creating eclectic jewelry pieces for her etsy shop. she loves showcasing items that are unique. she does not do any mass production, so you can be confident your piece will always be special. heidi sent me a shiny silver floral pocket watch necklace. it's a subtle statement piece which has collected compliments every time i've worn it. pretty enough for church and yet tough enough for a toddler to play with while he sits on my lap. browse her shop for shiny baubles and charms to give this upcoming mother's day. i think this mama bird necklace would be a sweet accessory for easter!

thanks for the review of the totes! I have been wanting to buy one but i was unsure of the strap length; now that i know it is adjustable I am even more excited! Thanks. :) Hope Benji is feeling better!

I love that watch necklace... reminiscent of course of Oma, who has been wearing practical ever since we were born. I think it's the perfect answer to my under-baked lessons each Sunday!
