Shop + Tell: Greet

Wow we haven't had one of these in a long time!! I was so happy to read Greet's email, I could tell that she was genuinely excited and happy about her latest handmade purchase...


Who: Greet Fleurfatale of fleur fatale

How often do you shop? I do a lot of handmade shopping! Both online and offline on handcrafting fairs! I like giving indie presents because they are the most original! My love goes out the most to repurposed and ecological creations, in that way indie shopping also helps you getting a smaller eco-footprint!

Scores... I bought this sweet pouch from Dawn of Latouchables, who designs lovingly-crafted bags and body adornment with individual appeal! I love how she is inspired by sweet simple things: the weather, a move, a book, a feeling.... The way she brings together different materials and colors are stunning. All of her creations are so full of life, so earthy, you really can feel the love she put in it during the process of creation.

This pouch makes me feel: happy, inspired, earthy, feminine and at home...

What made you buy it? This little pouch was for a long time on my wishlist, I used it a lot in treasuries I made for Etsy, but one day I could not resist anymore. And the name alone - 'Walk among the violets! Simply irresistible! I feel these colors are really me! I am a lover of mixed materials and vintage buttons and fabric, this pouch has it all! And as I am not so organised (especially in my handbag) this pouch will do a great job helping me with that :-)! I cherish it!

Thanks Greet!!
