Look what I did today....

I was reading up on Victorian Fans and their uses and an idea popped into my head. I thought I'd try to make one myself instead of embellishing one I purchased (I do have a few of those, too). What do you think?

Since I thought we'd all (especially me) look kind of silly trying to act coy and using one to flirt with the gentlemen of today, this should be for decoration only. I love the cameo and glass dangle fringe on the handle and the eyelash fringe brings a more current look to this fan.

While I was at the "gluing table", I thought I'd grab the last two little purses I have from my stash and embellish them, too.

This is the back. Boy, is there a lot of handwork on one of these! I don't know why the sequins look a little yellow. Perhaps it's because they are in direct sunlight. There is so much bling on these that you need sunglasses.

I always embellish both sides of my little purses. You never know when it might flip on you!

These will all be in my Web Store this week! Come shopping for yourself or for an unusual gift for someone special.

Bertie, the fan is gorgeous & I love the color & the cameo on it. But what I really love is that first purse! I didn't know you were making purses!! So so very pretty & elegant. I have some little purses hanging in my powder room. One is my late mil's.

Yours are yummy!!!

That fan is so pretty !! You really have captured all that was good in the Victorian Era. :) Those purses are so sweet, very feminine. I am a sucker for sequins. :)
