here kitty kitty

ccoolcatbag

Some of you, like me, may have come across this glorious picture on Erin's tumblr recently. It's by frl.zucker on flickr, and at first glance I didn't think too much past "oooh, pretty colors, pretty bike, pretty bag!" However: upon closer inspection, I realized that, besides being pretty, that bag is both TAPESTRY and CAT PRINT. Stop the presses!!! That's the kind of mind-blowing combination that I never dared hope might exist anywhere outside my wildest, twee-est fever dreams.

Naturally, I assumed anything so amazing could only be vintage. Still, I decided to poke around and see if I could find anything online even remotely similar. And then--a miracle! Un milagro!! A search for "cat tapestry bag" on ebay returned, after some careful sifting, this:

holy shit

Dost mine eyes deceive me or is this the EXACT SAME BAG??? Waaaaah!!! It also comes in a smaller, dare I say even more adorable size. Long story short: as far as I'm concerned, this kind of success story is why the internet was invented, and why it's actually ok that we'll probably all be cyborgs with Google chips in our brain boxes come the year 2025.

OMG! I want one so bad. I agree, I think the smaller one is cuter. And it's cheaper! :)

Oh this blog entry brings back painful memories of deciding not to buy it when I was in Prague. I blogged about it here.

Oh my gosh, I completely LOVE the bag. I find vintage tapestry bags on my buying trips pretty regularly, but kitty ones? Not so much. Fabulous!
