something to collect...

there is something i find incredibly appealing about vintage bags like these. there is passion, mystery and sophistication in their designs and style. i like to daydream where it was first spotted - in a window of a fine department store a few weeks before the holidays started, a little boutique where the sweet smelling owner always wore a tight bun and buttoned sweaters....- and who it was who carried it clutched in hand or under arm. they are gorgeous and they inspire me to find some of my own to give new life to. have a blessed friday.
paz, k
pretties here


  1. I love this post, and I adore vintage purses and handbags; yes it is always half the fun "to wonder about their former life", and who owned them!..,

    ~ As it happens, I serendipitously also blogged today about collectables ~Collectable perfume bottles; and whereas I designed most of the water colour images, as well as painting some that I owned, (before I had them printed), I always imagined a story about them as well!..,

    You are welcome to pop by my dear, to my little corner of the blogging world and see them if you care to perhaps..,I would love to have you visit!

    Cheers from Wanda-Lee, a.k.a./ Silken Purse
