delicate purses & a giveaway (sorry, closed.)!

'delicate flowers' purses

'baskets of fruits' purses

'delicate roses' purses

Over the weekend, I made eight purses for an order from my dear friend, Christie. They are made out of mostly vintage new old stock handkerchiefs. Remember these? The purses with purple and yellow roses are made of a handkerchief I received from a swap. Hence, my collection of handkerchiefs have been greatly depleted and I'm feeling a strange sensation of insecurity. Need to top up my meagre collection, soon.


'lace & yellow checks' purse - a giveaway

Do you know of a giveaway day (on Dec 2) all over blog land? Since I was in the making purses mojo, I made one more out of vintage yellow checks, lace purse lined with reclaimed soft green cotton, new brown zip and attached to the fastening's holder, is a filigree charm. I'll put this up as my giveaway item.

Anyone who would like to have this purse, please leave me a comment in this post, your e-mail address and if possible after, add me to your reading blog list/be my blog follower (check out the left bar of this blog). I'll pick a winner on 6 Dec, Sunday morning JKT time. I'll ship this purse anywhere in the world.
Good luck!
