My Caption Gift


Arrived this Saturday from Nancy. Three mini purses so nicely tied up with a sheer piece of ribbon. All this for the caption I wrote for her cat and the hat photo. Wow! These were done in one of my colors...Green complimented with a lovely shade of melon and golden yellow. And a sweet white doilie accent. How beautiful and useful these mini purses are...make up...coins...coupons. Just about any use you can think of. I love how she has a metal open and close things inside. That is just too cool! When Nancy wrote me back she let me know she did a little detective work and had read that I like green, hence her color choice. She also shared a tip with me that the secret to the little "metal openers" is a metal carpenters tape that she cuts up and puts inside. A tip she got from a pattern. She assures me they are very simple to make.
Thank You so much Nancy for this beautifully handmade gift. (http://wwwnancymatters.blogspot.com/)

How pretty... The green one is darling, but the floral one really hits the spot for me. Handmade gifts are the best. I'm sure you will agree! :)
