A Favorite Vintage Bag


This is one of my favorite vintage bags. I don't know too much about this style except that the fabric is bark cloth. This bag just evokes thoughts of a more gentle and peaceful time.



The bark cloth has such a great cottage look and I love the wicker handle that widens and wraps around the sides and bottom of the bag.

Now I'm putting on the kettle for another cup of tea and I am off to visit Suzanne for Vintage Thingie Thursday. Can't wait to see what everyone has to share this week!!

Come sit in my lap Bentley. I'll show you pics of Suzanne's puppies!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  18. Oh my gosh, I had a bag years ago that was IDENTICAL to this bag except for the color of the bark cloth!! Exactly the same woven wicker(?) and shape! I had completely forgotten about it until I saw your photo. Got it in a second hand shop. I can't remember what happened to it, but I did love it. Wish I still had it, in fact.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Love your blog, am now a follower.
