Roses and Rust, HERE WE COME!!!

I am so excited!  I am leaving in a couple of days to go visit my friend Marsha, at Tattered Chick.  We are going to go to Roses and Rust Market in Redding, Ca.  Marsha is such a sweetie to invite me for the whole weekend and she has amazing adventures for us planned. 
I also want to share the tote I made for Marsha's Market tote Swap.  My partner is Diane Lanford, at Cottage Wishes.  This is the tote I made for her.  Here is an indoor photo.  I used a Vintage French Linen Hemp, vintage crocheted table linens, and a French printed cotton fabric strip. 

 The strap is is long so it can be worn as a cross shoulder tote.  The straps are made with the same fabric.  

 I made the rose using vintage hand dyed gauze and a rhinestone button.  And there are three pockets on the inside for tucking small items into for carrying. 

 And OMG you should see the one she made and sent me!  I will post on it tomorrow.  It just arrived today and I need to take photos first.  I adore it.  It is made with burlap feed sack material.  Just wait!
If you want to see all the totes from this swap, pop on over to Marsha's blog, I think she will have links for those who have participated.

Oooh you lucky, Becs! I am sure you and Marsha will have a blast! I love your tote ~ that aqua(?) is a gorgeous color and I love the flower and bling you added. The inside sounds perfect with all those pockets.

You probably couldn't see it in my pictures, but I have your heart hanging off the corner cabinet in my living room. It is safer there ~ the granddaughter seems to love it, too, but at 20 months old, I'd rather keep it out of her hands!

OMG, this is absolutely adorable. So much attention paid to every detail! You did an awesome job. A bit of jealousy going on over here at my house. So envious that you and Marsha are going to party together. lol! Seriously though, have a wonderful time and tell Marsha 'hi' from me! Now a new follower.
