PURSES, PURSES, PURSES

Just a quick post to show off the purses I've been making from the little oval cigar boxes. They are so much fun to do, and I love how they each have their own distinctive personalities.




I love this last one, and had to shake my head in amaze and wonder when I saw what MizMollye had done with hers. You cannot, I mean absolutely Can Not tell me we aren't twins separated at birth!




Had to show the interior, too, on this one. Mary Pickford is the woman on the outside. You can read her film credits on the inside! (Did you know that she played both Little Lord Fauntleroy and his mother in the film of that name?! Me, neither.)

I'm having such fun going through the Blogerette Sisters' Rush posts--what an amazing and creative bunch of women (so far they're all women, but then I guess Sisters would be). I'm wanting to go see more, but it's after eleven, and I'll need to be at tomorrow's show no later than 7:30 tomorrow morning. (*yawn*)

Oh! If you live in the Portland/Vancouver area come visit me at the Vancouver Recycled Arts Festival this weekend! Lots and LOTS of recycled art, live music, the farmer's market a stroll away, playground for the kiddies, fountain to wade in--it's a great way to spend the day!

So funny that you superimposed yourself over THAT particular girl - - - I thought she was the one that looked most like me too!
