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!


  1. Oh, I'm so glad that it's arrived and that you like it! Thanks for posting about it - it was lovely to look down my blog list this morning and see its photo!

    Next thing (this afternoon), the draw for my giveaway...

  2. Me again! I did enjoy looking at those photos again - thanks. There's a challenge for you on my blog today if you'd like to take it up some time!


Thanks for reading my blog and posting a comment...... Drop in any time you're passing! Ashley xxx
