My Sweet Vintage Cherry Handbag

You can't just call this a purse.  You have to call her by her old-fashioned name - a handbag.

This sweet little handbag and I have only known each other a couple years
and I know she still has many stories to tell.

Did she go to church on Sundays?

Did she only go out for Saturday errands?

Did she lunch with the ladies?

Did she belong to some sweet young thing or to the sweetest little granny you can imagine?

Well, she now belongs to me and I treasure her.
She has gone shopping, she has gone to dinners, and she has gone out on the town.
She knows no boundaries now
(except when she won't hold everything)!

She came to live with me after a heated bidding war on ebay!  I have seen similar ones on ebay.  I thought of starting a collection, but quickly decided one was enough.

Thanks once again to Cindy from My Romantic Home for hosting our weekly little get together.  Please sure to stop by and see what other treasures await your visit.


  1. That has to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen! I LOVE it!!
    Did you find it at an antique shop or was it handed down?
