shopping in line for coffee?

So I've been back at work with Martha since Monday and I thought it would be nice to start my first day back with a giant iced coffee from Starbucks—I also needed some waking up! Well as I was on line for my regular iced-grande-in-a-venti-cup (I like a lot of soy milk), I spotted this colorful tote rolled up in a basket.

I loved the pattern and wasn't surprised to see that it was "African, handcrafted to celebrate and share their culture." Makes me think of Jane Goodall, Flo, and Freud and how amazing Africa must be.

I yearn for a visit there... but in the mean time I have a great new lunch tote for $12.95 that will "connect me to the community of artisans who are working to create a better life for themselves and their families. The vibrant patterns symbolize insight and sustenance through human effort." I like that.
