I am absolutely head over heels in love with my recycled denim purse from Jenna’s Red Rhino!  How cute is this?!

The craftsmanship is astounding and I love the lining and extra pockets inside.  Not to mention the logo!  And it has a sturdiness that I need; I cram my purses with tons of stuff!  I LOVE IT!

Jenna’s Red Rhino on ETSY is a cornucopia of amazing items from corsets, to hats, to pillow covers, to cat treats etc.

Jennifer sent my cats a special treat: a delicious cat canoe!

It envelopes a cat just as they like to be enveloped.  The sponginess is so cozy.  My cat Violet, usually very timid, took 2 seconds to claim ownership!

Check out Jenna’s Red Rhino’s CAT BALLS!  They are incredible!!!  OMG!

And her blog:

I met Jennifer Schmidt through ETSY and she is such an inspiration to me, both with her business sense and her approach to life.  She has a glorious sense of humor and a great vision!  Love you, Jennifer!

‘Look! the world’s comforter, with weary gait

His day’s hot task hath ended in the west;

The owl, night’s herald, shrieks, ’tis very late;

The sheep are gone to fold, birds to their nest,     

 And coal-black clouds that shadow heaven’s light

 Do summon us to part, and bid good night.

Venus and Adonis (532), William Shakespeare

 Merry Christmas, love from Post Street!
