June Purse

It's June and I know that is the month of weddings
but I was in the mood for something a bit more, um, cosmopolitan.
Kind of verging on vintage, but something I might carry if
Bette Davis and Audrey Hepburn had a child and I was it.
Capice?
Capice, n:
Asking for agreement, understanding, belief. Answered with itself. Often used in italian mafia-type settings to emphasize understanding.



I found the original purse form in a bargain bin at Mickey's.
It was broken, but hey, I have tools.
At least I didn't use duct tape.
(like I did with my lawnmower)
You have an entire month to join in with Frosted Petunias Artful Bag Challenge
and if you don't feel like rooting around in a Michael's Bargain Bin for a starting point, visit Anna at Frosted Petunias and see what she created this month-Prepare to be
AMAZED!!
