Kerry's got a brand new bag!

Yesterday, I looked in the mail box and this was waiting for me...
all the way from New York...

A parcel that I've been waiting for!
 I've been looking for a bag that would hold my camera, wallet and sunglasses.
Something sturdy, but not bulky and wasn't afraid to get out in the bush or down to the beach.
Oh, and stylish too!
I found it and couldn't be more happy.
I found it on etsy.
Heavy duty canvas.
It's by a company called meatbagz ...they have super cute business cards too!
  Apparently it's an old Swiss Army fly fishing bag.
And as the description on their site says,
"What the Swiss Military needs with fly fishing bags, we don't know..."
 Maybe while the Swiss Army was being neutral during the war, they went fishing instead of fighting.
Anyway, whatever the reason is, I love what 'meatbagz' has done with it...
 A lovely Prince of a bird silk screened on to the front, a few cool buttons and rivets and Presto!
My new camera bag.
 I wanted to take a picture of my camera IN the bag, but of course this isn't possible unless I have another camera...hmmm...that's a thought....
