If I've mad some purchases at a few very exclusive stores, like LV, Hermes, etc. otherwise no.

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

I think this is such a unique idea. Who would have thought?

Angie said...

Funny....I just looked at that pic yesterday in CH&H Condos special addition from last year. I love the idea of framing shopping bags.

Milk and Honey Home said...

I say Yes! If it is art to you, then yes. I'll be posting next week about a fabric sample I framed as art. There are no rules, girlfriend! Love it. Julie

Kathysue said...

Ooooh! This would be so fun in a walk-in closet or dressing area, I am going to remember this idea, love it, Happy weekend,Kathysue

LifestyleBohemia said...

A definite yes! I love this idea!

Mrs C said...

I would never have thought! Like the idea of your little LV in a frame.

I have a larger LV box from a messenger bag a few years back and I keep all my special gold & bronze Christmas decs in it, and get so excited opening it up each year!

Design Esquire said...

A big YES!

Lady Hatch said...

that's a really smart idea, especially for a large walk in closet or dressing area. I save bags from my expensive purchase. This is a great way to bring them out of hiding!

Love this idea!

SPLENDEROSA said...

Definitely Yes. Never thought of this, and I hate putting the luxury bags or boxes in the trash. Pretty cool, Sarah. Come join us on Wednesday, see my post which is up for details. xx's

Jamie said...

yes! that's so genius & creative.

Kerry said...

Great idea if you are doing it with some bags that are not too common, or that would be special purchases! Also... in the right room of course. Hadn't thought of it before!

Sarah B said...

I like the idea. I always keep pretty shopping bags and I am thinking of displaying them at the top of my studio storgae unit. I goos excuse to do some designer shopping!!

lisaroy said...

yes, I love this idea - I had seen it somewhere before and have purposely kept my LV and Burberry bags for this reason.... but yet to frame them - just another thing on my list of to-dos. : )

Laurie - Little Blue Chairs said...

Maybe- I think these are cute, but I would hate to see them in a braggy-braggy way. You know like name dropping. Not cool.

Dyanna Pure said...

Yes, yes, yes! <3

Hello Lover... said...

Wow. I love this. I don't think this is something I've seen done before. Great for a dressing room! I'm going to have to start keeping my pretty shopping bags!

Debby said...

I have a teen daughter that loves to shop and I bet she would love this idea for her room ~ I'll have to show her ~ well, maybe that would just give her an excuse to shop, huh? lol xoxo

Kellie Collis said...

The perfect excuse to shop! I hope you have a lovely week! xx

Robyn said...

This is such a great idea. It would totally glam up a great closet or really any room.

Sketch42 said...

Im not sure. It needs to be in the perfect place. Not sure... lets see a pic of yours!

La Dolfina said...

I think it's a very clever idea and looks great in the image you've shown.
I'd like to see your... I bet it looks great too :)
Sorry I've been MIA lately... been missing you :)

Brittany said...

oh my! what an idea.

might just have to execute this one.

show us a picture of yours!!! xo

Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. said...

I've had this image saved forever on my computer. Love the idea...now I just need to save up to actually have one of these bags!

Lissa @ After Adornment said...

I think this is a cute idea. I agree with Kathysue's comment though and maybe only hang them in a closet or something.

Yahnay said...

I think its a great fun idea for the right space!

Kristin said...

I think it's a super cute look!

jen said...

Brilliant!I love your LV bag tucked away in your powder room...it is unexpected + totally glam! It makes me smile every time I see it. I think it is important to surround yourself with 'things' that make you happy...+ creating art out of random objects is the perfect way!

Amy said...

cute idea!

Wow, I love this! I'm not so sure my fiancee will agree though, hmm ... I may have to work on him. What a creative idea!
