Hi there, I recognize a lot of you from TFS and just wanted to share (okay, and brag) about my Blanc Paddy. I was just sitting here reading the boards w/my paddy sitting next to me. The way the light was hitting it really showcased the pebbly leather. I've had the opportunity to hold in my hands about 4 Blanc Chloes and the leather on all of them were nothing in comparison to this baby. I just can't believe how amazing the leather is. Just have to share!! What is really bizarre and lucky for me, is that I purchased it off Berg's website on a fluke when it just showed up that it was available. !! Oh and one thing I did to make it a little "bigger" and easier to access the stuff inside (I am a mom w/child) is that I undid the side buckles and twisted the flaps around and tucked them under the straps. I can't believe how much stuff this little babe can hold!!
