Spring is here and everything seems to be, well, springing back to life. Early spring flowers are popping up, buds are breaking on the trees and shrubs, robins are foraging everywhere, and worms are returning to the surface. I suppose that is good news for the robins, huh? One of my favorite signs of spring though are the little snails that crawl along as if they didn’t have a care in the world. Slow and steady, those snails eventually get where they are going… wherever that may be. So when I saw this cute new bag from Kate Spade New York, I just knew it would be going places too. Take a moment and discover the Kate Spade Spring Forward Snail Bag!
This adorable novelty bag is shaped like a happy little snail. When I look at this piece I cannot help but smile. I love its green and cream woven raffia shell, particularly the whimsical spiral design. The shell itself is the functioning part of this bag, with the raffia concealing a round zippered pouch. The body of the snail is made of glossy wicker. And his oddly expressive black eyes are made of beads. To me, it doesn’t matter that this snail is not anatomically correct. What matters to me is the character it has. I see this as a great conservation piece for the spring and summer months. You know, for those occasions where things are light and airy.
