Have a Heart, Tinman.

Handbag Thursday [hānd'bāg' thûrz'dā]

1. A Canal Street knockoff of Jodifur's Shoe Friday.
2. A lame attempt at regular blog fodder by invoking my own accessorized day o' the week.
3. A frivolous little feature that allows me to talk about handbags every week.
I was having a bad day a few weeks back when Average Jane sends me this link for Handbag Thursday. (Note: I have been begging Jane for a picture of her handbag for months, but she resists. Don't you want to know what she carries?)

Anyway, the link made me laugh out loud and I thought it might make you smile as well!

Via Boing Boing, the Ribcage Backpack. Awesome. Just that - awesome.

Description: Carrying our possessions around has become essential to our lives. Bags have become a part of who we are, a part of us. This bag is a living, breathing backpack. It responds to sound in the environment around it, appearing to breathe. This is one of three identical bags. On the inside of the bag, there is a screen printed lining as well as a change purse with a screen printed heart on it. The bag closes with a draw sting, which has flameworked glass beads on the ends of the string.

Materials and Processes Wool, Boning, Pigment, Borosilicate Glass, Machine Embroidery, Screenprinting
