Winter/Holiday themed purse

I hope you like my latest purse. It's perfect for winter and/or the holiday season. It's a 100% cotton reindeer and harlequin printed batik, topped off by gold braid trim, decorative black metal rings, and a lush velevet bow centered with a vintage brooch.

It's nice and roomy inside, with inside, and of course, it sports my signature tied shoulder straps. It would be great for yourself or as a gift for someone very special...

Thanks for stopping by, everyone -  happy shopping!

I took great pleasure browsing through 5erg's shop, which is packed with all kinds of wonderful items, including felted mini creatures, artwork, beautiful affordable jewelry.

Thanks to Kateemarie for a treasury!

Many thanks to Kateemarie's Etsy shop for including my silk ribbbon embroidery purse in her her lovely treasury!! You can see the lovely work she's done here:

I was delighted to discover Kateemarie's shop and found these 2 creations that I think compliment each other very well - don't you. I know the work that went into her quilt, and it's a steal at her price.

My Vintage Sweater is in a treasury!

I want to thank Pat, of GoodLookinTreasures, for including my vintage beaded lambswool and angora sweater in her lovely treasury! It's called "OATMEAL with CINNAMON", and you can see it here.

She's also created another treasury, called "Go ahead...W(h)INE a little" for some other fantastic finds!

Pat does not yet have her own shop, but her daughter is relatively new to Etsy and has a lovely shop. She carrires a bit of everything, from apparel to hair accessories to jewelry to paper goods to vintage! I especially like what she does with fabric and flowers - here are a corsage and a hair barrette that caught my eye.

Her etsy address is

Please take a look at Pat's marvelous treasury and if you like vintage clothing and haven't seen my vintage shop yet, please feel free to have a browse!

I've been featured!

I want to thank Jillian, of Classics Redone, for the lovely feature of my Etsy shop on her blog! You can see the feature here:

I just love the look of the Classics Redone blog - particularly the sweet and beautifully colored, happy bird that greets you as you first log in.

It's obvious that Jillian is multitalented, as seeen by the nice variety in her Etsy shop. Her specialty is her pretty hair clips. I've chosen a few to showcase here, for your pleasure, and I especially like the sweet little frog bow - it's so simple yet artistic genius at its finest! Please visit Jillian's shop to see more.

Thanks again, Jillian!

Winter scarf bling!

I just listed this really versitile scarf that's both attractive and warm! It's made with a textured black novelty yarn that's wooly, warm and shiny all at the same time. The overall effect and design results in a multi-textured, tone-on-tone effect with bling!

This scarf is really long, and can be worn in a variety of ways - casuual or elegant. It can be practical, and worn under or over a coat, tied, looped, around the neck or across one shoulder, draped down or across the body, or stole-like. Whichever way you decide to wear it, it can be fashioned as is, or dressed up with a scarf clip or large sparkly brooch for plenty of bling.

Measures 8" across, (20.5cm) X 79" long, including fringe, (200.5cm). Fringe is approximately 8.5" long, (21.5cm).

Please visit my shops at:

Stay tuned for Christmas ornaments and another very chic winter scarf!!

For those who love Oriental...

I haven't officially announced my newest Oriental themed purse. For some reason Oriental design comes easily to me. I've found that people either love it or dislike it - what do you think?
