It all started with a BRA...
I purchased a new one, and the bag that the salesgirl gave me holding my new purchase
It looked like different adds from old magazines
all Maidenform bras
all rather risque
all vintage styles.
I came home and cut up the bag thinking
this would make the cutest
The glare in the photo is due to the plastic
I used over the original plastic bag, itself.
I also used real BRA straps on the handles
and it can be closed at the top with the back of the bra fastener!!

Tea Towels from the Past

I found these lovely tea towels at a great, little shop in Lake Elsinore, called Mora's Antiques.
I just can't pass up anything embroidered  that's this cute.

 Does anyone still IRON on a weekly basis, like our grandmothers did???
The little kittens on the towels are so sweet.

The "Wall Street" Handbag

This handbag was purchased by Patti, who owns the wonderful store called Truely Tattered, in Old Town Tustin. I'm fortunate to have some of my purses on display among the great "vintage" treasures, that abound in this small, but quaint shop.
The purse was made from three different mens suits, and some embossed vintage fabric. Large buttons accent the front and back,
I also used the  pockets which were on the suit, as handy outside pockets for keys, or whatever.
The back has another "different" suit pocket
making this a fun
and functional
