It is our belief that many objects are not truly SEEN until they are well situated in complimentary situations. We know that in order to connect with art, one must be able to visualize it within their own environment and feel what it would be like to wake up to it each day. At A Curated Nest, we continuously curate vignettes to best honour the beauty of the objects we choose to surround ourselves with. As artist-owners, it is important to us that art be seen as integral to everyday home decor and original art purchased for the energetic joy it provides.
This bag has been completely handmade by Canadian artist C. Lovisa. Each bag has been made with custom original sizing and styles. There are never two bags alike as the "artwork" on the bag is either an original painting, art print or needlepoint. These rescued artworks come from thrift stores or antique stores. Once they are removed from their original confines, usually a frame or stapled to a wooden panel, they become the feature panel for a bag. Complimentary vintage fabrics are recycled into becoming the bags' panels. In some bags, pockets, straps and hardware are integrated form other recycled purses and handbags. These bags are purposefully left unlined with backs of artwork exposed so that the handmade raw nature of the bag is allowed to show through in the quality. Each bag boasts tons of hand-stitching in complimentary colours to show-off its unique nature.
This overnight bag is oversized. It features a beautiful vintage needlepoint art piece. The closure is a repurposed red bag tag band with two vintage buttons. The bag boasts a wide comfortable strap for over shoulder toting. Maybe this becomes your favourite junking bag or perhaps your very finest sleep-away bag? Whatever your intended purpose, you'll be thrilled with carrying around a piece of original art!

Serendipity Candles are the best choice for your home and the environment.Unlike mainstream ones, they contain no harmful ingredients linked to allergy-like symptoms, aggravated asthma or an irritated respiratory tract.
Soy candles also burn twice as slow as paraffin, allowing you to enjoy them for twice as long. Additionally, the scent is much stronger and more pleasant. Because of the lower melting point of soy wax, more liquid pools around the wick (releasing fragrance into the atmosphere more easily).
We carefully source all our wax from companies that are committed to meeting the highest of standards. All of our fragrance oils are created to be paraben and phosphate free AND also phthalate free.
Proudly made in Canada.
