Autumn is very, very short in our area of Texas. The leaves on the trees can change colors, and then fall to the ground, in the course of one weekend. We can have 90+ degree days well into October, and have to wear shorts on Halloween. When we do have a cooler day, we have to really go out and enjoy it, as we know it's a fleeting phenomenon.
This bag was inspired by feelings of drawing together, bringing close, and gathering up. You can read more about this inspiration in my tote's description, here.
Hopefully, autumn will come visit us here soon, even if it is for just a short time.
