Basic Black

Welcome Ladies! First I must apologize for the hurried pictures. They are not the best, but we have contractors here (more on that here ) and getting to take time was not an option.
Funny how many collections one has when you actually think about it.
This is just a portion of my collection of vintage purses.

 This purse is made of small seed beads and is actually on the heavy side.
A lace collar embellished with pearls would dress up a plain shirt beautifully.
 My favorite purse is this silver mesh purse.

Hope you enjoyed this rushed post, I promise to do better next time!
Be sure to check out these great parties!

  1. Love the sweet little baby shoes how cute are those...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  2. I love old purses, I just bought a couple this weekend!

  3. I have a bead purse too, but unfortunately the beads are falling as the treads are so old and ripe. Soon there is just the lock left...
    Beautiful picture of beautiful things.
