Have you discovered #handbag Monday? Vicki shares a new treasure #MFRWorg #RLFblog #fashion #accessories #lovehandbags

Handbag Monday with
...Vicki Batman

By now, you know of my extreme love for handbags and how I shop on ETSY for super dooper finds. Recently, I found this extraordinary needlepoint:
What looks odd here? Does it look dated?

The colors really popped and the bag was in great condition. Not a bad size although my regular wallet didn't fit well and I switched to a slimline version which I prefer anyway. 

This bag cried for a new handle. I happen to have a clear beaded one and changed away. What do you think?
  I really like the handle much better. The gold slinky ones did add the pizazz I was looking for with the nifty colors. BTW, I paid $34.99 for this cutie.

Have you every adapted a handbag?

I really like the new handle better! You did a great job! I have never altered one...or thought about altering one! I am so picky! I can't find one I like in a size that works for the price I am willing to pay, LOL! Maybe I should look on Etsy!
