Animal-Friendly Children's Bag Collection 2017 by Gucci

Gucci Children's Bag Collection 2017 offers fun and animal-friendly designs for kids. The collection comes in several styles including top handle, backpack, tote bag, crossbody and messenger on Gucci's classic signature beige and ebony canvas. The bags feature owl, cat, bee and rabbit designs in stitched applique style or as print embellished with studs for eyes.

The bags are super adorable but they come with the hefty price tag starting at $650. I love the owl top handle bag (shown on the top), only if it was affordable.

I wish you all a Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a wonderful time with your family.

Fantastic Embroidered Bird Brooches by Paulina Bartnik



I have featured Paulina Bartnik's wonderful embroidered brooches previously on the blog, here.

I came across some of her latest on Instagram bird brooches that are absolutely exquisite! Each of her hand-stitched brooches are either in a portrait or a whole form. The detail in her work is mind-boggling! The intricate features that the artist stitches bring the birds to life. It's the clever combination of colors of thread and some raised parts of the bird that gives three dimensional effect to each of her bird. It can take anywhere from four days to a month to finish one bird depending on the detail.
