    Ohhh…I’m in love with this color combination! it’s so serene. My first thoughts were that the bag was like sand on a beach and the scarf is like waves on it. I’d feel silly for saying it except that the image it puts in my head is so lovely :)

    The colours and the bag are lovely! (I wish I could weave.)
