A GIFT FROM ACAPULCO

A few days ago I had the pleasure of taking my cousin {visiting from the West Coast} around town for a little lunch and afternoon shopping. We stopped by Faces, both picking up some feather hair accessories and new sunglasses, after which we filled our bellies with the always delicious Bueno Y Sano burritos and GoBerry for dessert. On the walk back to the house we stopped in Roz's Place, one of my favorite vintage shops in town. What did I buy there you ask??? This little wicker $12 purse from Acapulco!




Although I find the embellishments adorable, it's not quite my style, but looking past the yarn covered purse I saw a new camera bag waiting to be discovered. I took these pictures on our way to my cousin's wedding thinking I could pluck these things off by the time we arrived... unfortunately the yarn was doubled-knotted and tied so many times I couldn't make the transformation in time to use it {and my car looked like a crafter's nightmare}. With a little more time on my hands the next day, my new camera bag was ready to use. 



It has a few rough spots from where the yarn was woven in, but nothing that's going to stop me from using it...and maybe I'll add my own embellishments to cover it up {someday}. 



I added a scarf I bought from Roz's Place about 13 years ago with my best friend who is getting married in a little over a month. We were out driving around in her maroon Toyota Camry listing to Blondie's "Heart of Glass" on repeat with our new scarves tied around our heads and our faces covered by large Jackie-O style sunglasses. I'm glad Roz's has remained a part of Northampton for many years.

  1. That's lovely what you did! I'm glad you're going to use it as a camera bag, that's a good idea. :) I had fun with you! Hopefully I'll be able to make it back next year.
