Happy Birthday to ME!

Sara Oliver handbag

I LOVE my new Sara Oliver Handbag! It is a hand knit bag designed and made here in the bay area.  I love the color and style of this bag.  But, what I love best about this bag is the story behind it.  Sarah Oliver's business was growing and she needed more knitters.  She put together a group of ladies and one man from a retirement community in Mill Valley.  Her knitters average age is 88, and she has  lovingly named the group the  "Purlettes".  They knit all of her bags!  I love a business with a social conscience.  Not to mention, I can see myself as a "Purlette" one day, knitting (and crocheting) away...with purpose!

Thanks to my hubby (and my Sophie)  for this special birthday gift!
