    I'm not going to draw you out.....this bag is the the culmination of 10 years of collecting....making mistakes, educating myself, waiting patiently and learning what I truly love about H.... about two years ago I wandered into a new Boutique while I was traveling and introduced myself to the first sales associate I saw and was treated with absolute kindness and had so much fun more than I ever thought possible in what I then thought was a rather conservative store. A wonderful friendship was formed and I've continued my relationship and loyalty to that store and sometimes I have to get on an airplane to bring home my items, but I always love seeing my associate , she is an absolute treasure. uploadfromtaptalk1467332115216.jpg

  2. About eight months ago I was offered my first special order which I naturally accepted with Grace and excitement and while I was home doing a secret happy dance looking like a maniac. You see I am a big bag girl and I have had to rely on the pre-loved market to acquire my lovelies.

  12. It is... thank you dear... I actually purchase a blue paon pencil case about 5 years ago and fell in love with all things blue green....it's MY happy color...my eyes are blue, my dh are hazel....and so are my son's blue green....lol...so when blue paon was brought out off the archives..we built this bag from the inside out. I adore my sales associate she's actually the store assistant selling manager and I really relied on her judgment to help me choose the final form and I'm so happy I did it was truly a collaboration. I would have chosen Palladium Hardware and she urged me to try brushed gold and it's just the perfect jewelry for this beautiful duck!
  13. My thoughts EXACTLY.. ..it made the time fly. Lol
  14. Indeed..I'm blessed. Thank you sbelle
  15. It's often said..The joy isn't in the arrival at our destination....it's the journey we come to treasure.
