the peacock clutch

Finally!!  I have pics of my beautiful Anita using her peacock clutch. 

We were at McLaren Vale, at the iconic D'Arenberg winery, dining at one of our favourite restaurants - d'Arrys Verandah - for Anita's mum's 60th birthday.  We *may* have purchased some of that yummy wine to take home with us ... mmmmmm ;)

One side of the bag:


And the other!


Oh, and Lily asked if she could go on my blog with her ice cream toy (randomly??):


Here are a couple more detailed pics of the bag:



It looks great, and attracted a lot of attention ... but good grief, it was an absolute *shit* to put together!!  In the end I had to cut it up and buy a new clasp in order for it to work.   Great design, but the instructions were not thought out properly, and the design printed on the canvas did not fit the clasp enclosed in the kit.  Ah well, it turned out OK eventually!

    1. It does! Actually, her jacket is a very dark green, which matched in beautifully. She even wore Black Rose Minerals' 'Peacocky' eyeshadow ;)
