Pay it forward - Thank you

When I arrived home from my holiday in Florida, I had a lovely mailbox stuffed full of things and in amongst them was my Pay it forward prize from Floss over at Troc, Broc and Recup' . It is a handmade little purse/pouch made from beautiful vintage fabrics from Europe and China. Yipee! I am so excited it is beautiful and I really appreciate all the time and care that she put into making it.

Front view of the purse, beautiful lace or possibly woven thread work of a blue background.

Back view of the purse. A beautiful circular piece of embroidery with part folded over to cleverly make the flap at the front.

Detail of the front of purse and a French millinery flower from the first half of the 20th century.

Detail of the embroidered fabric. Stunning!
