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!

I just had a big birthday yesterday. My Nana gave me some money and the rule is that I have to spend it on something for myself, I was browsing my favourites on Etsy yesterday and I came across a beautiful butterfly necklace made by neile's shop that necklace is long since sold of course, but I started looking at her shop, and then her sold items. I think I am going to comission a Blue Morpho butterfly necklace for myself. I think it is just beautiful.
The question now is do I need to get a whole set made (above) which would require me to add some money or would the neccklace be enough for me. Will I always be looking for earrings that match?

I am on my Holiday in Daytona Beach, Florida. This is the first real day here having flown in yesterday. The condo we are in overlooks the beach, and I watched Dolphins out in the ocean as I ate my breakfast.. Here is a postcard circa 1960 of the beach, the skyline has changed quite a bit since then, they do still drive on the beach though.
