New Lotus hobo bags

These beautiful large Lotus hobo bags are designed with the inspiration of a Lotus leaf that sits peacefully in the pond. It is a simple, yet elegant bag that can take you from day to night in a snap. The full pleatings around the bag is an attention grabber and add some spice to an otherwise simple bag. This bag is large enough to store all your daily necessities and more. It’s a corded double shoulder strapped bag with three magnetic compartment closures. These bags are large enough to use as stylish diaper bags for all new moms.

These Lotus hobo bags are my most recent designs and freshly made this week. I made them in different fabrics and colors... which one do you like? Do you think I should make them in black, white, red, and green? C'mon, I would love to hear your comments! ;)

Beautiful and Cool Autumn

As the warm weather starts to ebb away, we begin to feel the inevitable zest in the air that tells us the seasons are beginning to change. But don’t let the cooler weather discourage you from feeling your best and enjoying nature's beauty around you. I love the four seasons we have in Canada as each has its own unique beauty. I have heard people say that Autumn is the season of death, but I totally disagree with that. Although it's a little cooler, the changing color of the leaves is breathtaking.

I took this photo while on my way to pick up my kids from school. These are the maple trees that change colors in the Fall... the warm rustic multi colors... aren't they beautiful?

It' getting close to Halloween.  This beautiful home in the neighborhood already looks so pretty with its NOT so scary decoration. 

Needless to say, it's pumpkins season! I just love these cheerfully bright orange pumpkins... I'm thinking about pumpkin pies. :)

With the change in the season, it’s also time for a change in wardrobe and accessories. I have recently added these interchangeable shawls/scarves along with my bag collection.

Nothing feels warmer and prettier than wrapping yourself with this shawl/scarf. It’s not just a simple scarf…interchanging it into different styles is just a few buttons away.

It can also be worn as a poncho, bolero, shawl jacket, and more… all you need is a little imagination! One more suggestion is that you can wear this as an outer layer top of your black turtleneck. It will look really sleek in the office.

I hope you enjoy viewing my newly designed shawls! You can find these in my Etsy shop for $48.00 US. If you mention that you saw these shawls on my blog, I'll take 10% off your price.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! For friends and readers outside Canada, I wish you all the same in the month of November.
