Vintage Upcycled Navy Blue Ladies Hand Bag/Purse with a Hand Painted White Kitty Cat

This is a vintage upcycled ladies hand bag/purse with a hand painted white cat.

Design is hand painted, heat set, and waterproof and has been sealed for extra protection of the design.

The bag is a beautiful rich navy blue color. It has a gold clasp closure, and gold colored trim around the top of the bag. The handle is attached by 2 pretty gold circle rings. The handle is long, so this bag could be worn cross body or over shoulder. Inside the bag is also navy blue in color and it has a small zipper compartment, perfect for holding keys, lip balm or smaller items, so that they don't get lost in the bottom of your purse.

This is a vintage bag in very good condition. It has 2 minor light scratches on the front of the bag, that are not very noticeable at all, and do not distract from the beauty of the bag. On the back of the bag on the gold metal, are some small minor marks, again nothing that really distracts from the beauty of the bag. This bag is overall in excellent condition for it's age and it's pre-loved nature.

Upcycled Hand Painted Unicorn on a Black Mini Briefcase/Multi Ring Binder.

This is an upcycled leather mini briefcase/multi ring binder. It has 7 rings. The Unicorn design is hand painted, heat set and waterproof. It was been sealed to ensure protection of the design.

Inside the binder on the left hand side are 12 credit card/ID/Business card slots, and one clear plastic ID opening down the bottom, which you can use for your ID or business card display. 
Under the credit card holder is an opening you can use for any loose papers or workings you have. The right side features the multi ring binder, and under it is a slot for storing papers also. On the back of the mini briefcase there is a pouch for additional items and there is also a pouch on the front with a pop/snap closure.
The handles of the mini briefcase extend and retract, this is the coolest thing about it, so you can use it more as a briefcase, or push the handles in and have it as a binder. The choice is yours

Also great to use for school or college for keeping all your important papers and homework neatly together. Or use it as a diary for storing all of your thoughts. How about a drawing book for artists to keep all of their designs in one place, or for doodling on the go.

Height approx 8 in
Length approx 11 ins
Width approx 1.5 ins

Original maker of item is by Franklin Coveye

Updated The Buzzing Bee Suitcase/Luggage

So I updated the Buzzing Bee Suitcase/Luggage.  I felt like it needed a little extra something, and that something was some color and an extra bee up top.  Now I'm really happy with it, so I thought I'd share.  Now I feel like I wanna' go on vacation somewhere nice.  There is so much snow falling outside right now as I type this, but I do love the snow too.
I'm feeling pretty good today/this weekend, and things have been going quite well for me regarding my Etsy shop lately.  I've made some sales of both my art work and my bags, which makes me really happy.  I now have over 1000 followers on my Facebook fan page, and it's great connecting with everyone on there.  Overall, I have just had some wonderful support, especially from fellow 'homemade' community peeps, and I just wanted to say 'Thank you.  It really means the world to me.'
If you want to check out my lovely buzzing bee luggage, you can find her here.
