  273. I simply love all the market totes! And the Ellison camera bag… and the vintage typography!! Simply lovely… it hearkens back to a time when things were simpler due to necessity. They may have have been hard times but it brought out a certain refinement that would have never been appreciated otherwise! Thank you for this reminder!!

  274. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. commented:

    What a beautiful collection – love the vintage feel! I really love them all, but the Emerson bag really seems to be calling my name!

  275. heather williams commented:

    Mmmm….love, love the Julia Messenger bag…it’s casual & understated, yet, strong in style & function….a bit poetic, if you will. Perfect w/ boots & sweaters as you’ve shown…but equally cute w/ jeans & flip flops as well…an all seasons sort of bag, imo. I’m such a tactile person…& it’s hard to tell (from the photos), but I just know, since it’s made from vintage French linen, that the texture of the fabric must be just gorgeous…& feminine! Thank you so very much for a wonderful opportunity!! Gorgeous blessings ~H?~

    P.S. I pinned it here:

  276. Love that camera bag – even though I do not have a camera!

  277. Love the new line. I have ordered the Emerson camera bag.

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite because they all say “Paris” and bistro and wrought iron and cappuccino to me. But if I had to choose just one, it would be the Emerson bag. Just beautiful!

  387. My “Emerson” handbag will be arriving this week and I am SO stoked to change over to it and start using it ASAP. It will join my other Jeanne Oliver products from previous lines. I love how cozy, romantic and vintage your items are. You put so much time into picking each item and designing it to a tee. I can’t rave enough about the quality and I get compliments daily on my other bags / jewelry I have purchased from you. I get excited every single time you launch a new line. This one has to be my favorite. You have added in the linens from France and it is just dreamy. I need every piece! And on top of that you are generous beyond belief. $850 for some special reader!!! What a wonderful Holiday gift you will be granting to someone. Keep up the dreaming and designing. I want a whole closet of Jeanne Oliver designs one day. <3 Happy Holidays <3
