Remember these? well, next time you are at your old Aunt Nelda's and you're wondering why the heck she still has one of those hanging on her living room wall, or draped against the back of her couch... Try this. Get your eyes to frame a small section of it. Just a small section.
Then you'll see a wonderful richness of colour and design; instead of an overly ornate something-or-other.
Or, if aunt Nelda doesn't have a 70's ruggy thing like that.... Then you could purchase a shoulder bag that has all that work done for you! It's one of those bags that actually tempts me. Its a fun size, and great texture. The deer scene was combined with the remnants of someone's velveteen curtains or bedspread (not sure which). The strap is the very last piece of that funky Carribbean piece from my pal, Bonnie.
With all that blue, and green, that swooping, and that swirling..... My word! You'd think you were at the Carribbean yourself. (hey. I live on the prairies and *$@#!ITSCOLD!)
Now the picture on the right didn't do a darn thing for the colour, but that's why its beside the other picture, which shows the niceness of the green. however,,, I published it anyway because it shows the pocket beneath the flap which is ideal for your phone and keys and grocery store cart token.
I used my last piece of blue chennille for the inside pockets. (I say that knowing that there may be another piece buried somewhere; but that is the last known piece.)
That's me and Shadow ushering in the Day of Friday. Toasting it in with a nice, hot, strong cup of java. This week just whistled by, and I must say that I thoroughly enjoy being back to work.
Don't make the fatal mistake of entering this weekend without a handbag. Something really, super bad could happen to you and six and a half friends if you do.
At 8 pm, we'll see who bid what. Any newbies out there? Just click on "comments", leave a numerical amount and some sort of name. If you don't have a blogger account, simply choose "anonymous".
Happy fawny friday!
