Separated at Birth?

Or, calling a Spade a Spade


Incredibly fashionable Kate Spade Fall 2009 bag 


Fantastically terrifying decoy owl


{via Making It Lovely and Whorange}  

So, let’s start as we mean to go on shall we?

This bag has been doing the rounds of the blogs in the last day or so. Much as we like an owl motif or two round these parts, and much as I hate to contradict two of my favourite design bloggers, I frankly find this bag both extremely ugly and utterly, bone-chillingly, terrifying.

It reminds me of the ferocious looking plastic decoy owl which you, dear readers, encouraged us to buy, and which was perched on our roof deck for the best part of the summer in an attempt to scare the birds from our cherry tree. I think it worked with the birds – there definitely seemed to be fewer around this year, and it certainly gave me the screaming heebie-jeebies every time I glanced it out of the corner of my eye.

Oh, and if you must buy this bag (and we would encourage you not to) the bag is available here.

We’re off to visit our friends’ cabin in the mountains this Labor Day weekend (oh how painful it is to write ‘Labour’ without a ‘u’ ) so I’ll be back on Tuesday.  Next week we’ll be talking about my new knitted cardigan and the new sofa.  How can you stand the excitement?

No it's ugly and reminds me of a school bag I had when I was about 8. A pass for me!

Ha! The thing is… I know it's sort of ugly. But maybe that's what I like about it? I can't explain it, but I LOVE the bag.

I saw this bag at Nordstroms over the weekend, and I have to admit it is worse in person. Normally a big Kate Spade fan, this is a fugly purse (can I saw fugly?)
