I had been eyeing this tote on the website for a couple days. There was something that kept calling me back to it! It is the perfect everyday tote! You can just tell the time and love that went into making it. I also purchased a teal feather to go with it.

This bag is everything! The minute I opened the box I could smell the quality. I can see every bit of hard work that went into making this bag. I bought it to carry all of my work but it is turned into an everyday bag!! I love it!

This bag is my second purchase from Jill's Homestead. My first was The Shorty Tote. I wanted to get a full sized tote & since Black is a classic, go-to for me, I figured it would be the best color to choose from (& there are so many others that are calling me!) I am typically not a "large" bag carry person but I wanted to check it out. I needed to carry a bunch of faux flowers to my small-ish wedding last month & instead of just using boxes, I figured, "let's put this bag to the test!" It fit a boxed bridal faux silk flower bouquet, a half dozen boxed silk flower ladies' corsages & a half dozen boxed mens' boutonnières. Then at the wedding, I ended up with all of the guys' wallets, sunglass cases/sunglasses & things that they didn't have room for in their suit pockets. Point being, everything fit & nothing was heavy. The thickness of the leather is perfect - not too thick, definitely not flimsy. I had the Crossbody Strap and D Rings added to my purchase. I love the strap leather so much - it is soft but strong! I usually am a medium carry person but I know this bag will get a lot of use when I go places when I need to pack a sweater or a lunch and also for travel. Anyone that loves tote bags in general needs to try one from Jill's Homestead. I highly recommend!
