Lace Embellished Purse

I'm so excited to show you the lace embellished purse I made! I started with a canvas bag, with a zipper across the top, that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. Thanks to my friend Kristi (her blog is Junkology 101) for showing them to me! When I got home I dug out every piece of lace I own ...which is a lot...and I made a huge mess! Anyway... I started trying out different combinations, until I decided I liked this.

 I simply glued all of it down using "Crafters Pick Fabric Glue" and I am thrilled with how it came out! It's perfect for when I am shopping the fields in Warrenton!
Thanks for stopping by, I would love to know what you think of it by leaving me a comment.

"Wide open spaces"

 Life has been a bit busy lately....and I am counting down the days until the Spring Antiques show in Warrenton & Round Top, TX.  Im looking so forward  to getting  out of the city, and out to, as the Dixie Chick's say, "wide open spaces".  It makes me smile to just think about it!
 Last spring we stopped and took these pictures on the way....the Bluebonnets were just beautiful!

I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning, and my reward will be shopping the fields, and tents of Warrenton and Round Top. I am already dreaming of the treasures I will find!
Thanks for stopping by!
