PRETTY THINGS: tote bags

pretty things tote bags via au pays des merveilles

My daily bag is most definitely a canvas tote.  Whether you need to bring just your daily necessities, do some groceries on the way home or bring an extra sweater: it always fits and it’s never too bulky.  There’s just one problem: they don’t last a very long time.  Now that my favorite tote bag (I’m talking about the white version of the “my bauhaus is better than yours” tote from this post, which already replaced the black version) has  developed holes big enough for my keys to fit through, it’s time to think about replacement.  I’ve been keeping an eye out for a pretty substitute and I’ve gathered my finds here.  Number 2 is probably my favorite, although I have a hard time picking just one.  (Especially when I look back at this post from two years ago, where number 4 and number 6 caught my attention again.)   Which one would you pick?  (And feel free to share if you found other great designs!)

With the cacti-craze and succulent love that has been going around lately (you can read more about my personal plant favorites here, here, here and here or on pinterest), it was just a matter of time before someone combined their love for plants with their love for food.  Thanks to Brooklyn-based baker Alana Jones-Mann, you can find out how to make these cupcakes yourself here.  (source)
