Being a ridiculously snowy day in my neck of the woods today, and having to pop in and out, picking up and dropping off DD, I decided to get out the Grapeshine Trophy Satchel,for my travels. I wondered to myself "how come I've hardly ever used this amazing bag?" (She is beautiful!) but... hmmm... I think it's something about that light purple edgepaint that 's putting me off. It's so ... Purple! ...so... I did something I thought might be a really bad mistake and got out a fine paint brush and some black leather dye. Hmmm. What a finicky job! Hmmm. Took me all day, Didn't touch anything but the purple edgepaint, mind you ...but now... ...But now! I'm so happy!!! She's still that deep deep purple, almost black in some lights, but reflects the purple just in the right light. Now she looks more like Blackberry than Grape. Shewill definately be seeing the light of day alot more now! Presenting my "new Blackberry /old Grapeshine" TS... Whadyathink?
