Kin-Cha-Ku aka {Drawstring bag}. Kin-Cha-Ku is a traditional Japanese purses or handbag. It is a small bag, typically with a drawstring. Kin means fabric and cha-ku sans to put on.

We thought it would be great to share a little bit more of the studio photo shooting with you.  S, aka studio assistant has been terrific as a model for the studio.  She loved balanced {kin-cha-ku} on her arm and stacked them in her arms.  We had lots laughs while photo shooting and lots giggles while the {Posie Garden Kin-cha-ku} couldn't balanced any longer! Of course, she got a little tired after all the fun! We wrapped up our studio shooting with a Sunday drive date and a quick visit at the local ice cream shop.
