Today is the mum's birthday.
Like every morning that we are all home together, we sat outside and enjoyed each other's company and coffee. It's difficult to say which we enjoy more;
the company, or the caffeine.
And then we made the mums open her present.
She is a very difficult woman to shop for because she is so unique and it's hard to find just the perfect gift for such an amazing woman!
But this year I think we did pretty darn good.
Forestbound Bags are all hand made and one of a kind, because the lady who makes them picks for the canvas that they are made from. Many of the canvases she finds are WWI and II era. Each has had a previous life and if only we could hear the stories they've lived through....
I found her on Instagram, which I freely admit to being obsessed with.
Here's her account name if you have one, go follow her and enjoy looking at all the handmade, one of a kind goodies!
Mum's bag is made from salvaged canvas from WWI and leather straps. It smells of old stories and saddle butter. It's awesome.
In a world of fast and easy, plastic and cheap gadgets, it is truly refreshing to find someone who takes the time to put their talents to use and produces beautiful and useful gear.
Happy Birthday Mums. We love you.
