So very girley

I found this lovely old beaded purse at an antique market a few months back. I decided a little girl in pink with wonderful millinery flowers would be just the right thing to slip into it. I had so much fun making this that I went on a terror collecting small vintage purses and I am working feverishly to create a whole line of purse dolls. What I love most about these are that each purse has its own personality, wear and tear. I wonder how many evenings out they enjoyed along with their owner. What restaurants and dance halls they frequented and what beautiful gown did their owner wear?
Watch for witches, pumpkins, santas, angels and more everyday purse pieces coming soon.

The dollie is precious...and to think about the history of the purses, so neat...I have a few from my great aunts and grandma and I just think they are priceless. Thanks for the memory :)

I've seen your collection of little purses and now to see them come to life again in a whole new way is fantastic- just very charming.
