Vicki Batman asks: What's in Your Closet? #HandbagMonday
ago, I dressed for church in a rose pink silk sheath. I'd been carrying the
adorable needlepoint bag in yellow with the daisies. Sadly, as is so with older
bags, it's in for repair. Besides, it wasn't the perfect one for the silk
dress. My eyes swept over the shelves in my closet and landed on this one:
an Enid Collins box bag. You may remember that I posted the red leather Enid a few weeks
ago. Interestingly, that one was made after Enid sold the company. I still like
this one off eBay (big surprise!). It is a wooden box with papier mache
flowers are on it. Handpainted in a variety of pleasing colors on each side. There are flowers on the sides and the top. The name, Enid
Collins, is stenciled on the bottom in black ink. Every squiggle around a flower, beading, etc., is hand done. The white straps became reversed when I hung it on the doorknob for the action photo. Unfortunately, I don't
remember what I paid.
it for two days because I am worried about breaking the flowers. They are so
cute and remind me of the sixties and seventies when mod stuff was really
happening. (Am I dating myself? God, I hope not.)
it to class on Monday and my friend was bowled over. She'd never seen it before
(she's seen many) and really appreciated the artistry in this one.
