~ Handbag Monday ~
Today, I welcome a guest, Ann Gaspari! Ann and I met years and years ago when we worked the Home Tour which benefited the local elementary school. Then she came to Jazzercise and we joined a Mah Jongg group. But best of all, she is an amazing knitter girl.
So at Mah Jongg, she showed me something she picked up when traveling this summer, I squealed, "Oh, you have to let me show it on Handbag Monday."
Here's what Ann has to say:
I bought this bag at an art gallery in Provincetown, MA (at the tip of Cape Cod). I saw it at an art gallery called Cassandra Complex. They had a lot of wild stuff, but when I saw the vintage bags that had been hand-painted, I had to have this one. Later, I found out the artist, Joy Lessposh (real name??) was also a tattoo artist. The base is a silver bag that can be a clutch or has a little strap. I really love it for dressier occasions.
Isn't the bird gorgeous? And I love the fact an old handbag was brought to life with the painting. The fact the strap is detachable is a nice bonus: two for one!
And now, Week 3 of Paris bag:
As you can see, I've made mega progress on this side. I have a bit at the bottom and a bit on the right. I'm thinking I'll have this done by Week 4! Having so much fun doing this and love, love, love the red.
