First of all, these clutches are beautiful! Next, I'd be reincarnated as the Italian Poppy Bud purse because it's one bold image against the white. Not too cluttered or glittery - simple & bold.

Melissa de la Fuente said...

Oh my, my,my,my,my....I LOVE her clutches and what a fantastic giveaway! Wow. I would have to say I would be reincarnated as the silver birch clutch....(such a fun question too!) because it is simple and lovely and the silver birch will light your way come evening....:)
Thank you for this both of you!

Well... I really want to win b/c my wife is a purse addict but she'll never spend money to get a nice one like these, even for her birthday next week. I can say she'd want to be reincarnated as the Sparkle pod - she loves to be bold and stand out in a crowd so I'm sure of this one!

I would love to be reincarnated as "On the Wing." The fabric is so beautifully lighthearted. My owner would have to be warm, fanciful and close to nature. What life could be sweeter?

megrje said...

It would have to be the jellyfish buttons- so perfectly geometric, and representing craft supplies at the same time :)

Feanne said...

Oh wow wow wow. It's so hard! There are too many bags I'd want to be reincarnated as! My top three are the peacock palace, red rose, and butterfly...

Hmm but okay. If I have to be just one, I think I'll go for...the butterfly. :3

Marilyn (Pulp Sushi) said...

I would come back as the Bird On A Branch (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16244258) because it would be cool to just chill in a tree and look cool. :)

Jen said...

If I was to be reincarnated as a clutch handbag..well I would have to be one that is one of a kind and just stands out in the crowd. So, I'd have to come back as The Peakcock Palace clutch. :-)

Mee a Bee said...

Wow! I hope I win!
I'd be reincarnated as Fern and Fronds I think. Ferns are such solitary quiet plants. I think I'd like to enjoy a quiet peaceful kind of life for a while.

KPP said...

I'd want to be the Helsinki blue because then I'd be ready for both formal and informal occassions.

Inklore said...

Oh, I didn't even have to look. I'm in love with the house plans clutch. If I could do it all again, I'd be an architect...

KitschKrafts said...

What a great contest and such wonderful prizes to choose from! If I was reincarnated into one of the bags I would be the Silver Birch coin purse. Simply because where I am from in MI silver birch trees sit on hillsides overlooking the most beautiful lakes and if I lived as long as a tree I would want to be in a place like that.

;0)

alana said...

On the wing is my absolute favourite. Such a beautiful shade of blue! I adore.

Claire said...

I would have to be the "On the Wing" clutch. All the clutches are beautiful, but that one was my favorite from the second I saw it. I love blue, birds, the sky, and I dream of flying. It's perfect!

Thanks for doing this generous giveaway!

Clementine said...

I'm such a huge fan of Rowena's work, that's fantastic news about being the next featured seller!!

If I were to be reincarnated as one of her clutches, it'd definitely be Peacock Palace--because if I'm coming back as a purse, I'm going for broke!

EliseBlaha said...

ooh! i would love to win! her clutches are stunning!!

thanks for the giveaway!

Breakfast for Dinner said...

Too....hard....to...choose! But if I must, I would choose Pink Chrysanthemum because pink is my favorite color. It's bright and cheery, bringing an instant smile to your face. The clutch is elegant, while remaining whimsical with this great print.

Nice work!

leni said...

Well, aren't all of those bag amazing! I know for a fact that I would be reincarnated into the wood for the trees silk-lined clutch purse ... and life would be beautiful!

Luxury said...

I so want to win!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Does she sell to boutiques?

oliviamoon said...

Hmmmm....gotta sauy this was an easy one for me. I would like to come back as the yellow seedheads clutch. Those dandelion seeds (as well call 'em in the South) live the adventurous life by getting to ride the wind to wonderful places.

sammied said...

I'm being reincarnated into a clutch bag?!?! How lovely! I would definitely be reincarnated as moonlight wood, because it's bold, fun, and it makes me want to get out and have some fun with friends, while showing off Rowena's lovely design of course! :)

J. Lange said...

Oh, what beautiful clutches! If I was going to come back as a bag, and wow, that would totally be okay with me, I would want to be the Bird on a Wire clutch. The blues are just so sincere and vibrant and who doesn't like watching birds perched on wires? Its simply fabulous.

d & k Buckmaster said...

I would definitely be the Pink starburst petite pocket purse. I'm expecting a little girl, so pink is on the brain, and I'm petite, so it's fitting! Too cute!
Kallie

CelinaQ said...

If I were reincarnated as a Red Ruby Rose clutch :) I think I'd be reborn as the Circular Slinky model. When I first saw this bag, I thought, "that one would be me--silly, fun-loving, orderly in a geometric way, and full of life [even though it's an inanimate object]). Then I read Rowena's description of the item and saw that she made the fabric from a photogram she had made. That further told me that this bag would be me as I am a photographer and have made many a photogram in my life.
So yes, I would definitely be reincarnated as the Circular Slinky bag.

Thanks for this opportunity! Celina

meredith919 said...

What a great contest! I would have to say that I would be the Moonlight wood clutch. It is classic and elegant and reminds me of the perfect evening!

Catherine said...

That is a tough questions. i want to be every one of them because of the simple and glamorous feel. but, ultimately, i would be the purple and pink peacock clutch because of the lines interrupted by the peacock oval shape. im really into lines right now. lovely work. thank you!!!!

Liz said...

Ooh, I love them! I would be the Mint peony bag. I'd be covered in flowers and beautiful, with the most luxurious part on the inside- silk!

Mindy Kuen said...

Love the clutches & BIG congrats on being the featured seller!! I would want to be "Sparkle pod - A Red Ruby Rose original silk-lined clutch bag" because it is shining & I hope to shine in this life & all that are to follow!!

Many thanks~
Mindy

christineArtist said...

This is wonderful! I would have to be the silver birch clutch- They are such beautiful trees! My parents each planted a birch tree in our front yard when i was a child. A woman wrecked her car into one of them knocking it down. My parents devorced. Not because of the tree- but as a child i felt those trees were magical. Ha Ha! Silly story- but true!

Kristine said...

All the purses are wonderful! But I would love to come back as one of the peacock clutches! Showing off those beautiful feathers!!

Piroseper said...

I fell in love with the Pink starburst petite pocket purse! So I hope, I'll be the lucky one...:)

Leely16 said...

Gold silk peacock feathers is my fave! It is so classy and elegant, I would love to have a bag like that!

earthexpressions said...

Beautiful Shop! Amazing work and designs :)
I would love to be the Seedheads silk-lined clutch bag, because is so femenine and has a soft contrasting of colors.... lovely colors...

Jennifer LaRosa-Hicks said...

Congrats on Featured Seller, fabulous bags! I think I would get to be the Red Ruby Rose original bag, as my last name is LaRosa, which means "the rose" litterally!

Lolafalk said...

Ooooh, this is easy. I would definitely be reincarnated as the Rose Nouveau silk-lined clutch bag (listing # 16088054). The classic, elegant fabric and design is reminiscent of something Audrey Hepburn might tote about town. As someone who is immensely influenced by her style, this clutch is my top pic for my "second life"!

clairehelene7 said...

I would be the Bluebird and dove clutch bag, because if I got bored at the party, I could fly away. :)

the happy girl said...

If I were to be reincarnated as a clutch, I would be so happy to come back as a bag by Rowena.

I think I would be the Aqua pods clutch because I would wish to be the kind of simple, sophisticated soul that was beautiful on its own and also able to complement others easily.

Plus, if I were any Red Ruby Rose bag, I would undoubtedly belong to someone with impeccable taste whose closet of beautiful clothes would keep me company. :)

If I were to be reincarnated as a clutch bag I would have to be the Classic Liberty Peacock. I love the sight of a Peacock prancing around showing off his feathers!

Laura said...

Easy, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14306804

Love that Queen Anne's Lace. Reminds me of my grandmother who always spoke of Queen Anne's Corner and I used to picture miles of this stuff.

Thanks!

dichroicdazzle said...

I'd like to be reincarnated as the Sparkle Pod clutch because I would like my owner to take me everywhere from shopping on a Saturday afternoon to a glamourous evening out. This modern classic design is the one best suited in my opinion.

tckretch said...

I'd love to be reincarnated as the Liberty Peacock clutch since it's just like me - a little sparkly on the outside, with beutiful surprises on the inside!

Kimmie said...

Ooo! I'd come back as Sparkle Pod! Because fireworks are pretty to look at, but too hot to handle. Two snaps up.

Catherine said...

Fabulous, droolworthy clutches!

I would be reincarnated as the Peacock Palace bag since the owner would certainly be interesting and eclectic, taking me on worldwide adventures (not to mention the bold pop of color inside of me that would surprise and delight everyone!).

nole said...

Oooh... what a great giveaway! I would have to be On the Wing -- it's beautiful while still versatile enough to be used in almost any situation. So pretty!

Venbead said...

I would definately be the peacock because a peacock is proud with a flourish!

June Shin said...

OMG, I love her clutches! This is tough, but if I had to choose, I think I would be the Italian poppy and bud.

Melanie said...

Beautiful, beautiful clutches - what a wonderful giveaway. I would want to be reincarnated as the Nostalgic Lily-of-the-Valley clutch.

Thank you!

Linda said...

All fabulous nature designs. I'd choose to be the yellow seedhead clutch with the warm yellow of fall and seed heads galore outside and the blue of sky inside. It's autumn to hold in your hand.

wuzzles said...

I would definitely be the Classic Liberty Peacock.

It's elegant, classic, vintage, and colorful all at the same time. I adore the colors and the way she pays attention to the pattern placement on the clutch itself.

Jeremy, Catrina, Cy, and Cade said...

What a challenge to have to choose only one clutch from her unique collection. I can narrow it to two: "i do" clutch and "white turtle dove." The brocade pattern on the "i do" clutch reminds me of the motif for the Japanese pine, a symbol of endurance, and the dove is a symbol of peace and love!

Tiffany said...

I love weddings! So if the closest thing to having another wedding after being reincarnated is being a clutch, I would choose "I do - luxury silk clutch". It's so pretty and I love the design. Then maybe someone would sell me or donate me to be used in another wedding and another and another. Now if I could only figure out a way or reason for them to put cake inside me! :)

cindy : quaint said...

it's so hard to choose, but i would go with the classic liberty peacock (although i really love the red ruby rose, too). i love liberty fabrics and the peacock is so regal and elegant. thank you for such a generous giveaway!

Violet said...

How beautiful are these clutches? love them. I would be reincarnated as the italian poppy because they are simple, beautiful and full of rich color, which I always appreciate.

Cocoa said...

Wow! These are all so beautiful, so I can't say I'd be disappointed to return as any of them...But if I get to choose, I'd have to be the Circular Slinky.
It's beautiful while being fun, and unique. It has an element of silly elegance to it...that's what I strive for in this life, so I would absolutely choose it for my next one! Plus I can imagine being used to carry a variety of things, from beautiful handmade jewelry, to lifesavers, to kazoos and small toys...oh to be so versatile!
Rowena-you are truly talented.

Dre said...

Moonlight wood - beautiful, simple, versitle yet so very special.

meherio68 said...

Peacock Palace is me! You'll just have to take my word for it— it's just impossible to demonstrate why it is more beautiful than the other clutches— they're all so gorgeous!! But it's the one for me.

Kelly Alvarez Mace said...

I would wish to be reincarnated as the Classic Liberty Peacock clutch, as I would want to be the big, showy, gorgeously classic, fanciful, sexy and "look at me now!" kind of clutch in the room!

Irene said...

I would be the Aubergine Honesty handbag - it's demure and simple on the outside, but surprisingly bright and lovely on the inside. And the pattern reminds me of those frosty, winter leaves I love so very much to stomp around in when it snows!

- Irene, Seattle

gun---slinger said...

lovely clutches!
i would like to be reincarnated as Gold silk peacock feathers clutch.
Just lovely and so free; seems that i'm quite a bird myself: i can't seem to stay in one place too long.

xo.

Shannon said...

I'd like to be reincarnated as the bird on a wire clutch. I'd get to people watch from all angles instead of having to use my sneaky side glance that my husband says is painfully obvious!

Shannon - www.minmade.blogspot.com

ingrid said...

They're all so lovely! But I'd want to be reincarnated as the aqua pods bag because it's maroon on one side and blue on the other, that way I wouldn't be stuck as one colour for the rest of my reincarnated life!

dhjtw said...

I would be the silk starburst luxury clutch because it evokes the feeling of motherhood and how my little ones have motivated me to stretch myself physically and emotionally.

Michelle said...

redrubyrose has been a favorite of mine since i started on etsy!

i'd be Ethereal flower. it takes a bit to figure me out since i seem quiet.

this is probably the most awesome giveaway i've ever entered.

Stephanie said...

Her bags are so lovely! I would choose to be reincarnated as the lily-of-the-valley clutch. The flowers are so beautiful and sweet -and smell so wonderful! - plus, who wouldn't love to be lined with deep plum dupion silk?! Very luxurious :) Thanks for the opportunity to participate!

Pixie Soap said...

I think I would have to go with the nostalgic Lilly of the Valley. They are just so beautiful and smell great.

Thank you!

Caroline L said...

Great giveaway!

If I could come back as one of these bags, I'd want to be the circular slinky bag (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15703967). You don't automatically see what the print is. You actually have to look at it to see that it's a slinky and not just a pretty design. It takes more than an initial glance get to know the real me, just like this bag.

Carol said...

Stunning clutches. My favorite is the Polaroid Pod.
However, I would choose to be reincarnated as Peacock Palace as in this life I am rather plain, meek and not likely to stand out in the crowd. If I have another go at things, I might as well use the opportunity to wow the crowd.

Kelly said...

How do you choose?? It's easy (??) to make a clutch, but to take it to the next step and design your own fabric is amazing. Her products are STUNNING!

I think I would choose any of the peacock inspired items because they are secure, beautiful and have no shame. I would not necessarily describe myself this way but I would love to be reincarnated with those characteristics.

emily said...

How fun! I know that I would come back very happy if I were one of these clutches! I would hope to come back as either the Tree rings or Yellow Seedheads clutch, since they are so sunny and optimistic- traits I strive for...
Thanks a million for the great giveaway!
Emily

kristina said...

lovely clutches!!!
i would love to be "on the wing" because it seems that these days i find myself making 100 million get away plans...so may be with wings i'll get to go to all the places i'm dreaming about =)

Life at the Brady's said...

I LOVE these clutches...they are so stunning and unique. If I were reincarnated as one of these, I would definitely be the Sparkle pod bag - ignites the imagination with the colors of sea and sky with sunbeams and stars! Thank you for such inspiration.

tiffany... said...

i would want to be one of the lovely tree/ tree bark/ twig (and such) clutches. i am a sucker for a beautiful tree (and tree print). i once moved to a city... but, had to move out of it because there weren't enough trees... so, in short... i'd love to be a beautiful tree clutch!
thank you.

alixandrrraaa said...

I can not get over how amazing they all are the fabrics are gorgeous!!!

if i had to be just one (and thats tough) i would say the Mint peony silk-lined clutch bag.

Its classic but also quirky and i love it!!

Emily B said...

This wasn't hard at all. I'd be the Sparkle pod. It's kind of mysterious, is it fireworks in a twilight sky, or something under a microscope? Then on closer look it's a dandelion puff, about to spread flowers across acres. I love the idea of being explosive in such a pretty way :)

JennieRenée said...

I would definitely want to be reincarnated as one of these clutches...a few times so I could pick more than one. However, I'd have to say a favorite would be one of her sold, the "Lotus and Peony silk-lined clutch bag" because I love the pink and that linen/cotton look. Fabulous!

I've loved ruby rose's gorgeous clutches for a while now. My favorite is the Mint peony silk-lined clutch bag. It is both elegant and trendy... just the perfect touch though. This bag could last for ages!

Debra said...

I would come back as the peacock palace clutch. It is gorgeous, rich and the colours are amazing! who wouldn't like being that!
Thank you for an excellent giveaway!

switchintoglide said...

I would be re-incarnated as the Birdcage - silk lined clutch bag because of the beautiful colours and fabrics! I love the green, same colour as my eyes, which are my favourite feature. I guess it's because as girls we seem to think that we need to put ourselves down, so my stock answer to those sort of "bitch-fests" about bodies and what not it that I really love the colour of my eyes. My way of trying to be a little more positive... anyways! A beautiful clutch!

hannah said...

I would be the "Tree Rings" clutch... a beautiful organic design with fun bright colors. Love it!

Deena said...

I'd be reincarnated as the Italian poppy and bud clutch because it is bold, elegant, and straightforwardly beautiful -- a brilliant combination in a clutch (and in a person, as a matter of fact).

Nhi said...

I would be the White Petals clutch because it looks so simple and elegant on the outside but BAM! the inside is ruby red just like me... elegant but always with a splash of colour :)

nhi.n.le@gmail.com (nhile on etsy)

Paper Stories said...

They are all amazing but I would have to say... the 'sparklepod' clutch. It looks like a cyanotype photogram and since my degree is in photography it appeals to me the most. Any blending of fashion and photography is tops in my book.

mitzi said...

I would love to be reincarnated as the silver birch clutch so I could be a resting place for a lonely bird on a cold winter day, and look gorgeous doing so.

Tina Amato said...

I'm crossing my fingers that I win! If I died and came back as a clutch purse, it would be Rowena's Yellow Peony bag. Not only does the outside reflect my upcoming wedding colors, but the lining is blue (you know, something blue)!

How perfect is that?

Odannysgirl said...

Oh my, let's see. I would want to be "Bird on a Wire". Because I love the colors and the view from there must be fabulous! Love this featured seller and this giveaway.

Rodrigues said...

I have been eyeing these clutches ever since I got engaged- dying to have one for my wedding day, but a little out of budget for our small DIY wedding. If I had to pick, which is easier now that she is out of my favorite poppy style, I would choose the one with the pink peonies and lily of the valley, because one of the readings in our wedding will be from the Song of Solomon:
"I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys"
"As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters"

Christy said...

If I were to be reincarnated as a clutch bag, I would definitely be the Poppy flower bag. That is my daughters name...Poppy!

Lori said...

I would want to be the sparkle pod because it is bright, fun and sure to go with everything!

BTW- it was very hard to choose, they are all so beautiful!

Abbie said...

Oh, her work is just fantastic! Someone is going to be a very lucky lady! Hmmm... I'd be the "Bird on a Wire" clutch. The view must be absolutely fabulous from up there, and I fly solo most of the time too...
xoxo~
Abbie

aliciahirt said...

I would like to be reincarnated as the "silk peacock feathers- luxury clutch bag." My older sister just had her wedding and the color theme was based off of a peacock feather- so we're obviously in love with them. The bag itself is beautiful and feels natural in the flow of the feathers. Of course I had to fall in love with one of the purses over 75 dollars! If I actually did win this I might have to give it to my sister- I never did get her a good wedding gift (I gave her stress balls from The Office- but that hardly counts).

elleabelle said...

I want to be the birdcage clutch because I love the colors and the delicate nature of the bag. Simply stunning!

April Horsman said...

OH MY SOUL! What an opportunity!

I am in love with her aqua pods clutch... oh and the seedheads...and bird on a branch... do I really have to choose one ? :)

I love them all.

Have a great day!
April

maryhanks said...

What an awesome giveaway!!! Beautiful shop and a featured seller...how terrific is that!?!

Candy Stick Lane said...

This is amazing - shes been marked as one of my favs forever :)
I would be the house plans - hands down - because I am constantly planning new designs, for my shop, for my life, for the kids, i keep notebooks everywhere so i can make notes and jot ideas -

diana67 said...

The most beautifully, unique crafted pieces I've seen. I'd have to be the Ethereal Flower - understated, but versatile and ready for any occasion imaginable.

Danielle said...

Wow, they are all absolutely gorgeous. Okay since you're asking me to pick one to be reincarnated (which is a next-to-impossible-task!) I will go with the Yellow poppy fabric. Its bold, yet simple and classic, which would make me the perfect accessory to so many different outfits and styles! I would be simply adored!

Caroline said...

The gold silk peacock feather bag will be my future life! Reincarnation as a beautiful handbag sounds like a great afterlife. I just got married a few weeks ago, and the whole event was inspired by peacock feathers! I wish I'd had this purse for the big day, but I'd still love to use it now.

trees like giants said...

and i can only pick ONE? haha. hmmmm.....if i were to be reincarnated into one of these lovely designs i would most likely become the gold silk peacock feathers bag...its so classic....so vintage...it makes me want to dance. its simplicity, yet burst of color are the very thing i want from my life!

Sheau said...

Lovely. Thank you for hosting these. It's tough. Rowena's collection is so lovely. It would be Silver Birch Tree for me. I love the simplicity and striking imagery of the tree. It is like taking a trip in the snow.

Jessica said...

well now, this was quite a tough decision... but i would love to come back as the 'silk peacock feathers' clutch. nobody ever denies the beauty & elegance of a peacock. who wouldn't want that? along with the carefree-ness that comes with being a bird! the colors and detail of embroidery are amazing! and i would love to be that lovely teal inside =]

Alison said...

i would be on the wing. it's simple and beautiful, not fussy or overworked. just the way i like things!

Fru said...

I'd be Sparkle pod...because the fabric is uniquly made from one of her photos (which are by the way very neat!!) so i would be a clutch that was previously a photo..how cool is that!!
and as cherry on the cake inside I'll be silk as she says "for a little luxury every time it is opened"

I love Rowena's clutch!

JulyJennifer said...

Wow! These clutches are a piece of art! They are so beautiful! If I was reincarnated as one of these clutches I would definitly pick the Silk Peacock Feathers! This clutch is delicate, soft, wild, regal & striking!

just2keets said...

Without hesitation..On the Wing! Just the color of my little budgie which caught my attention in a bird shop while deep in the throes of sadness upon the passing of my once in a lifetime heart dog. His companionship, need to entertain and sweet little voice helped slow the tears. Birds are soooo underated..they truly are God's little messengers!

Beadiful Things said...

What a fabulous giveaway! I would come back as the starwheel silk lined clutch because it's the perfect combo: modern fabric, classic vintage style. Also, if I don't win, that's the one I'll be buying myself as soon as I get some jack together!

Hello Cozy said...

I'd definitely come back as the Ethereal flower clutch... a lovely mix of simplicity, interest, and beautiful colors.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Cori said...

Such beautiful clutches. I would want to come back as this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16489749

Because it is simple yet striking and that is something i would love to be. :)

Freshly Found said...

Circular Slinky is my choice! I like the photographic origins behind the lively original print! And the colouring. Yes Circular Slinky's my one!

burumun said...

I totally want to be the circular slinky!! Very cool - and I wanna be cool!

Annie said...

These are so beautiful!

I would choose to be the Italian Poppy, because whomever owned me would definitely treat me well and with a gentle hand!

Thanks so much!

nancyrobster@gmail.com

Aja said...

Awesome! I've been watching her shop for a while and have used her clutches in treasuries several times!

I would be Ethereal flower - You know what it is but there is still that air of mystery. The textured background reminds me of how I paint and the periwinkle interior lining is one of my favorite colors :)

Cindi said...

I would definitely be the Peony and Lily-of-the-valley clutch because of it is delicate, sweet and feminine.

zwielicht said...

I would be the Sparkle pod clutch.
It reminds me of electricity and being a science geek I just can't not love it.

ShiriMe! said...

i love love love the italian poppy clutches! they are soooo elegant, summer-y, and simplistically beautiful. the colors really pop right out of the fabric and the little weave in the fabric itself is lovely too.

understated elegance.

Digital Misfit said...

It would ROCK to be reincarnated as a Red Ruby Rose clutch! You know you would be taken to all the best parties and hang out with only the most fashionable people!
I would love to be the Bird on a Wire clutch http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16166555
Bright and exciting, yet serene and down to earth with beauty that shines inside and out!

beakee said...

Oh gosh, I've been admiring her purses for ages! There are so many to love. But I would like to be reincarnated as the Silk Starburst because like me, it prefers to make a statement in a quiet way. The fabric design and understated embellishments are perfectly adapted to this clutch structure, making the whole piece look very "put together" in an ultra subtle way. And like me, the purse looks tough on the outside but has a warm, soft heart :)

Martha said...

If I were to be reincarnated as one of Rowena's clutches, I'd be the bird on a branch. I love the way the silhouette of the white bird contrasts with the dark background. The leaves also frame and draw the eye around the entire clutch.

ritasmeeta said...

It's interesting to see how many people choose the same clutch but for different reasons! :)

I would hope to come back as the Sparkle Pod... It looks like a brilliant core of light reaching out into the darkness. That speaks to me. :)

Congrats Rowena on being featured! You are very talented!

swann said...

everything is beautiful, i had a hard time deciding! but for now, i'll settle with the redrubyrose! feminine and so classic!

Martinaglaessel said...

WOW!! Aren't these clutches just adorable?! They would look great anywhere and with anything. I especially love the peacock one! Hope I win this ;) What girl hasn't got a soft spot for clutches?!

martinaglaessel said...

OH, I forgot to mention that I would like to be reincarnated as the silk peacock feather clutch as it is pure elegance and a bit like me ;).

Ederafaerie said...

I think I would be quite content being reincarnated as any of these lovely clutches, but the one that speaks to me the most is the Classic Libery Peacock clutch. The design has all the things I love in it: rich colors, intricate pattern and a romantic, vintage feel...

aforementioned said...

I saw these clutches on Etsy yesterday, and couldn't get enough!
Should I be reincarnated as one of them, I'd hope to be the "Yellow poppy" silk-lined clutch bag. -It has such a crisp and fresh look. A gorgeous, clean design :D

These clutches are just gorgeous!! I love all of them!!!

If I were reincarnated as one of these clutches I would be the "Peony and lily-of-the-valley silk-lined clutch bag" because it is so incredibly feminine...just like moi. Also, peonies are my absolute favorite flower...LOVE!!

Thanks for having this giveaway...just fabulous!!! :)

Lana said...

I would be re-incarnated as the Ethereal flower. "white flower against a dramatic background" as it seems to resemble my life, skin tone & friends

SirkusVintage said...

The Yellow Seedheads silk-lined clutch speaks to me the most- upbeat vintage on the outside and the luxurious surprise of fancy silk on the inside. The purse is simply lovely!

Her bags are AMAZING!

I'd come back as the Gold Silk Peacock Feathers clutch

Classic, timeless, natural and a little bit showy! :)

Hmmm...this is not an easy choice. What will it say about me, in the end?
After much consideration, I think the yellow peony clutch is just the right vessel for me. (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16484211). I adore peonies and yellow--they suit a cheerful disposition, which I usually have--and the blue interior adds a nice surprise.

I would be a Happy Bird flying free from the BIRD CAGE clutch that I so Love!!!

Allison said...

I would be the blue fern clutch. It's so beautiful! I love that it's bright, but quiet and calm at the same time.

Claire said...

Ooh, this is so exciting!
I would want to be the Italian Poppy clutch, because it's a simple white background but with such a beautiful, bright, lively yellow poppy on it, and the vibrant teal blue on the inside is such a nice little surprise every time the bag is opened.

Katie said...

Ohhh it is so hard to choose! I think I would want to be reincarnated as the silk stardurst clutch because it looks like it would get to go to fabulous parties! Thanks so much for having this giveaway!

Fabiola said...

If I am going to be reincarnated as a clutch bag, I would like to be one that no one can take their eyes off like ... the Peony silk-lined clutch bag!

So glamorous, sofisticated and beautifully crafted!

Heather said...

Oh dear I made it just in time! I really hope I win one of these gorgeous clutches!

If I were to be reincarnated as one of these beauties, I would choose to become the Peony Silk Lined Clutch. It flaunts its color and beauty in a very shy and unsucceptible way , as if to not realize the extent of its own exquisiteness. The peony only slightly peers into the world as if she is unsure of what will result, yet she surely will make everyone stop and stare with delight!

waltz, matilda said...

Such beautiful clutches, if I were to come back as one there'd be so much time spend in limbo choosing!

katsinabag said...

So my clutches, only one reincarnation!

I'd love to come back as the Sparkle Pod as I'd be sure to be taken fabulous places and get lots of compliments.

Silk peacock feathers...because I'd love to be as eye-catching as that! :)

maggie said...

Wow!! If I had to choose, I would love to reincarnated as the Moonlight wood silk-lined clutch bag because "moonlight" is the meaning of my name and the clutch is just so beautiful to look at.....

Nice work!!

Mia said...

They're all so gorgeous. I'd have to be the birdcage ... classy and restrained - lol.

Heather said...

I would be the Birdcage - silk lined clutch bag.
I choose to be reincarnated as this bag because it looks like a house and I would be a home to all the owners articles like cell phone, lip gloss, wallet. I would keep them safe and warm just like my house keeps me :)

SaDonna said...

The Pink Chrysanthemum would be my choice as it is bright and cheerful, and makes me think of warm summer days spent at a park with my husband and kids. My daughter had been given one of the largest chrysanthemum's that we had ever seen by the gardener tending the flowers. She was beaming with excitement.

isabellaboo said...

I would have to say the Peacock Feather clutch would be me! I love that there is so much detail in 1 father! and its my color scheme :) Absolutely BEAUTIFUL designs!

lynneaeus said...

I've long admired the quality work of RedRubyRose....I'd want to be reincarnated as the moonlight clutch, since whoever would own me would have some seriously good taste. There's nothing like a simple yet bold pattern, and I always love a surprising color on the inside!

karenie said...

i've loved this shop for months, everything is so beautiful! i'd have to go with the silver birch, though, it's so clean and simple, and reminds me of the stand of trees behind my grandfather's house.

Betsy said...

Good question. I found while looking through the gorgeous clutches I'm not sure the one that I think I would be is the same one that I would pick to carry! I chose the Yellow Poppy silk-lined clutch bag as the one I would be (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16496698) because I like to think that my personality is bright and inviting, like the petals of that flower look. On the flip side, it is green and organic, and gives off a tranquil feeling. I'd like to think that would represent me well.

Great giveaway!

Brandye said...

I imagine my reincarnation as "Moonlight Wood". The pure peace and tranquility of night in the trees, softened slightly by the moon. Ahh. I can picture my new life there among the silk lining, safely in hand of the owner that loves me so dearly. A clutch to be clutched, for sure. I can see it now, through the branches I am....Moonlight Wood.

giggling goldfish said...

I could completely imagine being reincarnated as "Tree Silhouette". Simple, yet beautiful against my striking red silk. I would be adored by passersby wherever my owner should take me.

Katrina said...

I would like to be reincarnated as the ethereal flower clutch - Mysterious and dramatic, yet approachable.

Heather said...

The clutches are amazing and beautiful. I was immediately drawn to the yellow seedheads clutch. I would want to come back as it because it has so many different textures and possible themes. When I look at it I think of summer brightness, fall flowers, dandelion fertility, as well as vintage moralities. If I was that clutch I would convey my true self through those themes - happy, fun, going where ever I choose to go whether you like it or not, and a loving wife who longs to stay at home. The pop of blue silk lining does add a touch that would make any girl feel special and soft. So, yellow seedhead is the perfect reincarnation for me!... if I had to come back as a clutch.

Polly said...

It's very hard to decide. They are so beautiful and I could see my self reflected in many of them. I think I would say the peacock Liberty clutch because I love that male peacock 's grow such beautiful tails simply to delight the females!

peihan17 said...

Beautiful work... I'd love to be reincarnated as one- I'd be patting myself all day! Definitely as the seedheads clutch, because it's subtle, and bursting with happiness, and I have a thing for dandelion puffs =)

lillyella, uniquely you said...

Oh that is so easy! I would be reincarnated as the lily of the valley/lotus clutch - they are my favorite flowers all wrapped into one beautiful bag! they both represent beautiful things which I hope I do too!!

Brittany Bonbon said...

I would be reincarnated as lily of the valley/peony because it's beautiful, classy and functional.

Sara said...

What an impossible decision. I'll choose the Italian Poppy clutch! It is so quietly refined, rich and beautiful.

Sweetland Retreat said...

I would want to be reincarnated as this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16481726 because it's almost like it has a double identity! You have 2 options on the colors just by flipping it!! I love that!!

I would like to be reincarnated as the clutch with the pretty bird.

landerso21 said...

Oh how I would adore having one of these clutches as all of the patterns are so beautiful and elegant! Count me in!

Kali said...

i think i've just died and gone to heaven! what utterly scrumptious clutch bags. Rowena's collection is FAB!!
i'd love to come back as any without a doubt, but in this case i'll say Italian poppy - silk-lined clutch bag...hmmmm!
great give-away! xo

Sam C. said...

Her clutches are beyond beautiful! If I could be reincarnated into my favorite one it would be the italian poppy, silk lined clutch. I love the way the yellow and black stand out from the white! The clutch is absolutely breathtaking and reminds me of laying in a field on a sunny spring day.

The Bock Family said...

Well, I think I'd like to come back as the Peony and Lily of the Valley clutch - it just looks so fresh and springy. :)

MI said...

I love all of her clutches. They are soooooooo beautiful!

If you want me to choose, I'd want to be Rosa blue silk-lined clutch bag. Simple is the best! Only some lines have shown the beautiful roses and the blue color is just perfect!

NotionsbyNicole said...

Each and every one of her bags is a beautiful piece of art and I would be honored to own any one of them. But since I must choose...Silk starburst luxury clutch bag.

I love the nuetral color palette, starburst fabric and pop of pink on the inside.

leigh said...

Ethereal flower - it is just dramatic and dark, but also dreamy...

joules said...

Coral poppy... absolutely stunning, elegant and strong. I want to come back as this one!

sara said...

poppy central! or silk starburst. but any of them really, they all look like they're going somewhere glamorous and exciting :)

donnadidit said...

Bird on a Branch..Because black and white is an absolute classic, sophisticated,elegant and simply beautiful!
