Summertime in mind, I made two pretty purse bags today, using (mostly) old materials...
perfect for such an occasion.
Feminine and pretty, with room for a ladies' essentials.
(((Hanky, lipstick, mobile phone, face powder, keys, money...
well maybe not all these, but what to take and what to leave at home?)))
On a lovely summers' day or evening.
To be found in my Etsy shop .
Thank you for stopping by.x
ps: Do you like the rose?   It's a David Austen Rose and it has been a delight for the last couple of months.    The perfume is exquisite.   I think it's called 'The Mayflower'. xxx

these two purses are so pretty, delicate - little vintage pieces. They make me think of young Victorian ladies with their parasols taking strolls on a summer evening, chatting about love.

I'm afraid I'd have to have eye drops in that scumptious bag, as I weep at weddings like the Mock Turtle.
that means an extra wand of mascara too.
