So I decided to join The Artful Bag Challenge over at Anna's http://www.frostedpetunias.blogspot.com/ . It is a year long challenge and each month we will be doing something different. Anna is so sweet and very helpful! This is part of my "I CAN" challenge for myself!! At first I was alittle hesitate but realized it is exactly what I love and like to do!! I won a giveaway from Anna a few days ago. I won a copy of "Where Women Create" and she made me a very cool heart shaped Valentine. This little paper purse looks bigger than it is. It is only 2 1/2 inches high by 5 1/2 inches wide. I made it to match my livingroom. I pinned it to one of my mannequins that has a vintage fur collar on it. And my other one has my collection of fur jewelry and gold dog jewelry pins on it.

BUT I couldn't help myself and wanted to show you just alittle something I did! LOL I know this isn't the first one made like this and I can't remember which blog or blogs I've seen them on, sorry! I love brown as you probably know it's one of my favorite colors. In the first pic this is Hull USA pottery cup and sandwich plate that are alittle bit older dishes. I found the cup on my vacation in the summer for 25 cents and the plate at Salvation Army here in Flint for 45 cents!!I also got the wine bottle for 25 cents on my vacation and just got the cute snowman hat and scarf 75% off after Christmas this year!! I just took E-6000 and glued the cup upside down to the bottom of the plate. The cute ceramic cupcake on top of it, Kaitlin got me for Christmas
I also have been making these dishrags! I use to make them just awful! LOL to small and crooked! So I had Sim go onYou.Tube for me and found out I was using the wrong size crochet hook!! The guy who was showing how to do it said make them big, so I did!! LOL I picked this color to match these cool napkins I got for a gift!! Right now I am making a pink one for Valentine's Day!
