There are definite hereditary traits in my family, with going gray young the number 1. Or so I thought, until I came upon this picture taken of me with my Aunt Frances, who has just celebrated her 90th birthday.
I did not need another purse, but then I spied this gem. A hybrid of functionality and design, it is a cross between two of my favorite things: a train case and a lunch box.
As luck would have it, we’re driving up to Denver tomorrow for a Big City evening- dinner and a gallery opening- and I’ll be toting this purse, a more wonderful accessory does not exist, EXCEPT…for a purse hanger.
Purse hangers were the popular gift to give and receive back in the days of my junior high years, but haven’t been around for eons. ‘Tis a mystery why they fell out of fashion, because a purse hanger keeps your bag close at hand and off filthy floors.
The hanger from which my little jewel will a’dangle is from fancynancyhand
bagholders.com, an on-line business. fancynancy turns out to be a Virginia girl, who is as nice as nice can be. And surprise surprise, in addition to designing purse holders, she is a JAG with the United States military. A true steel magnolia! Choosing which fancynancy holder to purchase proved impossible, so I bought all three. M-m-m, perhaps two more purse purchases are in order.
Tie One On…an apron, of course!
