Purse Winnings

 I'm taking the plunge back into blogworld. Summer grabbed me and took me for a ride lately with multiple trips to the market to sell my wares 100 miles away and a marathon fishing trip that netted (quite literally) 39 Copper River Red salmon which I promise to post more about when I get my pictures uploaded
I wanted to show you this purse that I won in a giveaway from lovely Lorna from Artymess
She's just opened a new store on Etsy which I recommend you visit. Her stitch work is so detailed and fun. She's using recycled fabrics on this piece. This is side B.

 She included one of her fabric brooches inside
 And some other goodies.
This beautiful felted purse I won from Marilyn Rock in a giveaway many months ago and I have been meaning to show it off here as well.
Thank you gals, They are prominently displayed on my bureau along with several other gorgeous winnings I seem to be accumulating along the way from all you generous giveaway hostesses.
I want to thank you all for being such a supportive and fun and generous community. I do appreciate it!


  1. the purses are lovely but really it was the 39 copper river salmon that caught my eye. it's one of the things i miss most about living in the pacific northwest. lucky girl!

  2. Kim, I am so glad you shone a spotlight on Lorna's beautiful and whimsical work! And your felted purse is a work of art. Thank you for a fun little Sunday afternoon excursion.

  3. Cool're welcome Kim .....don't tell how long it took for me to get round to send it ...x

  4. Hopefully they'll do their research, Lorna and they will see many posts of yours on your blog!

  5. Such lovely giveaway wins! I think a lot of us have been away from our blogs this summer!

  6. congrats on those lovely winnings...they are wonderful
    Thanks also for stopping in and leaving me a comment on my blog...I had a friend who had a very similar experience with her pottery at a garage sale.....I guess in the end I try to remember to not hold too many things so precious, and to instead enjoy each moment as they are....I do find it a funny story about my book :)
    thanks again for the comment...glad you are back into the blogging world

  7. Just happened upon your blog while trying to beat the heat. Your purses are so fun (congrats on the prize purse) and your beadwork is delightful.
    best, nadia

  9. What a lovely collection of artworks all by very talented people. Thanks for visiting my blog too.

  10. Woohoo Kim, cooling winnings. Aren't Lorna's broaches spectacular and that purse is so you!!!! She knows you so well. Marilyn's work is so fun too. I won her Halloween piece last year and I keep it where I can see it all the time. xox Corrine
