How to upcycle a thrift store purse...

It is amazing what a little purging, organizing and cleaning does.  A few weeks ago I did that to my craft room (my pile of stuff to go is sitting in hubby's 'man room' waiting for my annual sale - but that is another story ;) )  Makes it fun to dabble with some of my stuff.

Take this thrift store purse and moss that have been kicking around for a few years.  I knew what I wanted to do with them but it just took me this long to do so.  That being said... for many reasons my crafty mojo has not been around lately and that is a whole other story!

For more details on how I created my little treasure, please visit my crafty blog here.

I am thrilled with the end result!  Now I will tuck it in a little spot on my potting bench that is just outside my door so I can sit, have my tea and just enjoy looking at it :) 

I had to tuck it in beside the altered scrap wood sign I made a couple of months ago :)

  1. What a cute idea, Laurel! It would also make a sweet gift for a gardening friend with seed packets tucked inside!
