Purse in Hand

 

I found this "Purse in Hand" at an antique market here in Connecticut, and it's really growing on me. I added the silk cushion and it's now listed in my Etsy store. The possibility of finding things like this is what drives me to search the antique markets. Okay, flea markets. :) I used to really dislike stuff like this; what's happening to me? First selvages, now this. What's next?


Notice the two pretty pinsies (beaded pins) in this cushion. They're made with pearls and glass beads.

You're making some great finds! Those hands look so realistic. In a somewhat ghoulish sort of way, I really like this one. Couldn't you plop your thimble on her finger too?

Hmmm, it sort of reminds me of "Thing" on The Addams Family tv show, a very, very long time ago.

Karen, you don't even use a pin cushion, do you?
