Avon Calling

I’ve had my eye on pretty florals lately. So naturally it was love at first sight with this beauty! I’ve been told it’s a bag that Avon sales women used to carry. I think it’s quite charming. I can just imagine the doorbell ringing and a stylish lady with bouffant hair calling out, “Avon calling!”

I also stumbled upon this cute Avon container for skin softener. I’m always attracted to their packaging, they did such a great job dreaming up unique ideas for containers. I have the cutest owl container on my bedroom dresser. There’s not many cold cream jars on the shelf today that I’d save after the cream is gone. They just don’t make ‘em like they use to.

I think this bag makes the perfect travel case, toss in your toiletries and off you go! I gave this set to my dear friend, Shea. Shea and her family have been traveling this past year with her husband on some out of town projects. She jokingly calls herself a nomad. She’s one of the most stylish people I know, so this bag fits her to a tee. I hope she smiles each time she sees this bag, and hope that very soon she’s packing it to come back home.

    Well, I do think this is the PERFECT accessory for a gypsy. It’s currently holding my embroidery projects. And I love the cream container. One of my favorite details is the direction to “apply lavishly.”
    Much obliged,
    Your Fave Nomad
