Sunshine State upcycled purse by bohoECO

Sunshine State

I live in Florida. Yes, I like it. Yes, there are lots of vacationers, elderly, it’s like a sauna in the summer, everyone here is from somewhere else, and the traffic sucks. But…whenever I want to go to the beach, I can be there in 15 minutes flat. I can even see a movie on the beach if I want! I can get almost any type of cuisine within a 30 mile radius. If I want to go on a cruise, I don’t have to buy plane tickets. While all our friends and family up north have had to deal with snow for (literally) 6 months in a row, we have sunshine.

Speaking of sunshine, check out the pieces for my Sunshine State purse:

Pretty sky blue, faded, vintage-y, with palm trees AND a sunset. Love it! I even dug out some coordinating ribbon, to add some interest on the strap.

Here is the finished product:

I honestly can’t believe this baby didn’t sell at my craft show. Several people picked it up but no takers. So she’s on Etsy now, waiting for a good home!

What do you think about Florida? Love it or hate it?

    1. Thank you! I’ve actually only done one so far, in Safety Harbor. Looking for more local shows. If they do Ecofest in New Port Richey this year, I think my stuff would fit in well there :).
