    Thank you, you open a whole new world!!! I'll be frequenting thrift stores with a new agenda now! Crystals? Definitely!
    A few months ago my quilt group received some donated fabric. I saw a piece that was black and grey squares, thought it would make a nice guy quilt. When I opened it up I discovered it was a skirt! Made the quilt and my Dad fell in love with it.

    Like it as a purse wouldn't wear it as a skirt. You have a talent for positive change. :-)

    Now that's a really pretty and unique purse, and you won't come across another one like it anywhere! With or without crystals on the roses, it is a beautiful, fashionable bag!
