I swear my addiction really showed when I found this needlepoint bag:
It had a gold colored handle; however, when I received it, I went eh. Not so impressive. Riding to the rescue is Joann's, a nice sewing and notions store, which happened to have a clear beaded handle, one I'd used before on a brown needlepoint handbag.
So I did a switcherooey with my jewelry pliers, and presto-changeo, an up to the minute cutie.
This one has daisy-like flowers in yellow with black centers and an off-white background. It has been perfect to carry with summer clothes. It receives lots of compliments which I say thank you to. Everything I carry fits perfectly inside with leftover room, too.
And the real crime? I paid $30.00.
Are you having handbag envy? lol
