My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

First Friday 11/7/08

I can't wait, I can't wait!!!! I've got to show you how the walls look and the roses on the ceiling. Squeeeeeeeeeeal!!!!!! That's just the beginning of the roses for the ceiling. Three different ones will be up there by tomorrow night. It's so pretty, gals..... *Sigh*........

I made this quilted purse for carrying my camera and other items when traveling. I made 2 since the first one turned out so well and I'm selling one. Inside is a pocket for a pen, a pocket for lipstick and camera if you'd like (velcro closure) and a pocket for cell phone. The quilted roses fabric is different on each side so on the front flap is the reverse of the bottom of front - a beautiful contrast from the tiny and larger roses. The pockets for pen and cell phone are a white quilted roses fabric to differentiate from the camera/lipstick pocket, but still a beautiful fabric also. I've tried my cell phone and camera and they both fit in the pockets. A pink ribbon rose is on the front. This is 100% cotton. Measurements are approximately 11 1/2" x 14" and strap is 60" (that's a 30" drop) so easily goes over head and shoulder for secure hands-free shopping. The closure is velcro. Price is $35.00 plus shipping. This is truly a one-of-a-kind bag (well, except for the one for myself but I doubt we'll be in the same town) and beautiful for the lover of shabby chic romantic items.

  6. Hi Connie,
    I love the color pink that yo used, it looks perfect and your handbag looks so good. Thanks for the visit and sweet comments on my Mom's house and to answer your question it isn't a log home, she just has wood on the walls.

  7. Hi Pumpkin,

    Just dropping in to say hello to my sweet pinkette. I've been crazy here trying to get holiday items finished, photographed, uploaded and all that fun stuff.

    Its cold and raining which puts quite a damper of my energy level. But I've got to get the lead out and move along. DH just decided to head back to bed. Not an option for me today.

    Love that pink purse chickadee. Happy selling and have a great weekend.

    xo Cath
