This delightful little purse is a family heirloom and to be the owner is an honor. My aunt who grew up in Chicago was over 100 when she left this. It seems it might have been from about 1920 when she was a young woman that she had been given this as a gift.

How could she have known my fledgling millinery skills spent some time creating a couple of hats that would be perfect with this purse. A mere coincidence?



This is the house she grew up in, as did I many years later.

Happy 51st day of 2011!
