Clutch Crazy

I got these 2 magazines looking for some much needed inspiration. I have never seen the magazine House Beautiful before but it has lots of painting ideas. All the walls in our house are white and I am thinking they could use a little color. I love the bedroom on the cover. We have been searching for a King bed for a few months. My tastes kept flip-flopping from modern minimalist to romantic English. I blame Downton Abbey for my indecisiveness. This past weekend we settled on a bed. The bed will be delivered this week and I am looking forward to posting pictures of our new Master Suite.
The other magazine is Stitch it has cool modern sewing ideas. I haven't sewn in so long. I think of sewing everyday and never do it.
Lola Clutch from Stitch magazine
I have never been a clutch person...I think because I've been a diaper bag person for toooo long. I thought clutches were cumbersome. However this Fall I started falling in love with clutches. When we went to the wedding in San Jose a friend had a yellow leather clutch and she carried it all weekend. I saw how versatile and ladylike a clutch can be. I had total clutch envy. I would really like to make this Lola clutch using the pattern in Stitch. I am not sure what fabric I will use. It seems like it would be a good weekend project.
