Introduction Blog by Kara Smith, creator and designer of fabulous & delicious handmade handbags. All created out of recycled, vintage, retro and reclaimed fabrics, buttons and buckles - such fun! Mount Vic and Me is my new business - born 2013. Beautiful art cards and postcards of the Blue Mountains. www.mountvicandme.com All images on this site are subject to copyright and cannot be copied without first contacting me.
Interests It all started with a piece of gorgeous fabric, begging to be made into something beautiful. My lucky find went into my trusty yet tired-looking handbag. And that’s when it hit me – I’d make a new one myself! From that first bag sprang many more, every one perfect for the girl who wants to stand out from the crowd. All bags are unique, one-off and all handmade. They are all individually named and come with cool details including contrasting pockets, vintage buttons and recycled buckles.
