A Little of This and A Little of That

Good Morning,

Friday is here, so is the weekend!  I will be back in the shop today through Sunday.  Come on down and say hello.

Yesterday I wanted to feature a friend and fellow artists Debbi and Amanda, a mother and daughter team of graphic design, crafting and vintage goodies.  To my dismay the shop on was empty.  GASP!  The horror!

She was kind enough to comment on the post and let me know that she has  moved her wonderful and lovely items to The Craft Star.
You may find her handmade and vintage pieces at: Yankee Burrow Creations.

Lilac beaded handbag shoulder purse


    This soft purple handbag is a great fashion accessory for this summer months. Crocheted in a pattern I have had since the 80's, I modified it by adding the front flap and shortening the strap. The plastic pony beads are worked into the crochet pattern, not sewn on, so there is no worry about the beads popping off from daily use. In fact, the bag I created way back then is still in use today. I added a nice fabric lining to this bag so you won't have to worry about combs or pens or anything getting caught, or sticking out, while carrying this bag.

    It measures 12 1/2" wide and 10 1/2" deep and is crocheted with Germantown worsted yarn - 100% pure virgin wool.

    Handwash in lukewarm water and gentle soap, roll in a towel and then lay flat to dry.

    Stop by and see what else is in her shop!

    Not sure what is happening around town, but the Boise Weekly does.
