We were fortunate enough for my husband to get a full time job at the end of last month, so I treated myself to a little shopping spree since I had been doing without pretty much anything extra for me for the last year. I started off with a custom made purse from Antique Basket Lady. I saw a purse I liked for sale in her shop and asked her to change the material to some other materials I saw in her shop. I love the credit card/id card pockets inside. I was tired of having a boring black purse, so now my purse stands out.
I then decided I needed a coin pouch for my purse. I think I spent nearly as much time choosing this as the purse. I am not even sure how I finally found this one. I wanted something that would go with my purse, but I did not want to get too crazy about matching. This fabric is also Michael Miller, with the same colors.
FriedOkra’s shop is full of items I would love to buy. I kept coming back to her shop, trying to decide whether to buy a mini-zip, a pouch for my crafts, or something for a present for later on in the year. I finally chose the “Crafty” zip to keep my crochet supplies together since I have been doing way more crochet lately than I have in the past few years.
I doubt I will be going on another spree too soon, since we do have some bills to pay off after nearly a year of no full time income in our house. I will enjoy these items every day!
