The Cavender house is a “hubbub” of activity today as we both pack for the airport tomorrow and make sure the house is stocked with plenty of clean towels and bacteria-free bottled water for the Doberman sitter.
Mexico, Cabo San Lucas. Thanks for asking.
We have both earned a vacation this year, trust me.
I was closely monitoring Jamie pack, as I always do, and I noticed his new collection of little travel bags.
Apparently Mr Jamie had snuck some new pieces into his line-up for traveling.
These groovy travel bags from Ecolution on Etsy.
Ecolution bags and accessories are the brain child of artist Sylvie Thiel. She lives in Montreux Switzerland, BTW.
Didn’t you wonder how she got her hands on so many Swiss army blankets to hack up?
This toiletry bag is enormous.
We both travel with a lot of “product” – what well-groomed gay man doesn’t ? – and this bag holds it all.
The details are right on target too. That sewn-on cross is my favorite part.
Sylvie honors the past using vintage fabrics (old Levis, wool blankets, French linen, even Japanese Kasuri textiles) and gives them a second life by combining them with leather and current hardware.
The smaller toiletry bag is just the right size for Jamie to keep all his small electronics, their chargers, batteries, and memory cards.
She even custonizes with monogrammed leather tags.
No more confusing whose is whose.
The boiled wool wallets and business card holders are soft and flexible for traveling too.
Y’all know how much we love Swiss Army Blankets in this house. A few years ago we covered a vintage chair with an army blanket.
Looks like Jamie is all set for our trip. My stuff is in ziplocs, I may need to catch up.
We’ll return after a week of well-deserved beaches and margaritas,
In the mean time, you are free to read about a couple other trips we’ve taken.
Our Caribbean cruise with the Pecks
Our quick Key West trip (not to ruin the surprise, but there’s a hurricane involved)
