I want to show you something that I think is unusual, old, and special.
This precious crocheted purse is beautiful on its own.
But look how you open it...
You lift the flap and pull the little crocheted tab which pulls the strings on the outside---
thus opening this precious old purse.
Some worn wooden beads.
Sparkly bits, carved ivory, and tarnished sterling.
And colorful shoe buttons provide the perfect ending.
