I used to live by the beach. Not on the beach, but four short blocks away, so I used to spend almost every night going for walks along the seaside.
And that was even before these two came into my life.
Now I rarely go to the beach at all. Even when it’s sunny. The funny thing is, I’m not sure I could ever live in a city without a beach and yet I don’t take full advantage of the one I have. My summer resolution? To change that.
While it’s not quite beach weather in the ‘Couv, it is picnic-by-the-beach weather.
My picnic basket? A vintage men’s leather bag I found at the St. George’s school fundraiser a few weeks ago. Every spring I find so, so many of my favourite vintage pieces there. So why didn’t I tell you about the sale before it happened? Because I’m the jerk who didn’t want to fight all y’all for the best goodies. (I hope we can still be friends.)
I’m debating whether or not I should polish it or leave it rugged and beat up. Thoughts? Judging by the fact that my mother just gave me a tub of leather polish specifically for that purpose, I think we know her vote.
