Thank you very much Aja. Nice to see you here. And elle s'ennuie, thank you too. And alo. I'm trying so hard to not use eoxalmaticn points (!) Ya I wanted to do a new pocket. It's the buttons that make me crazy, they are really nice. I think it's ok if it's showing wear especially nice green stuff. They do clean up pretty well and can take a pretty heavy duty cleaning. I love to hear bag updates! I think the totes you have of mine may have the best life of any that have gone out into the wilds of the world. I can't even believe all the endless- here is a butterfly, here are some deer, here are flower and flowers and more flowers, oh here is an abandoned castle. Bit jealous!
