clock purse lady..

This purse was gifted to me by my Grandmother Kutch for my 20th birthday. She bought it from Lisa's Antiques in Taylorville and I've been in love with it ever since. I don't carry it a lot, but when I do.. I get all sorts of comments. People are just amazed that it's actually a working clock (in a purse!). It's hilarious to see people's reactions. I love it.
When I recieved this amazing floral vintage fascinator from my sponsor, Slideshow Vintage, I was amazed and so excited! It's such a generous gift and I will definitely put it to great use! A huge thank you to Slideshow Vintage!

It's a lovely Monday, no?

That purse is awesome. I bet if Flava Flave were a woman, she'd totally have a clock purse too. How awesome your grandmother knew you'd like it :)

Wow, I've never seen a clock purse like that before! :O I've seen clocks that look like purses, with embroidery for numbers, but never a *real* clock in a purse. :D

I love the fifth picture down, with the sort-of profile of your face and the close-up of your bow tie. It's a really pretty picture. :3

I think that purse was in the first post that I saw on your blog and I was instantly in love. I wish I could find one or even one that looks like it but sadly, I have been out of luck.

I met Bibbe Hansen (Warhol starlet, Fluxus artist Al Hansen's daughter, singer Beck's mom) at an art show in Nashville somewhere around 2000... do you know she had this exact purse? I remember being so stricken by it and I've never seen another... until now! Such a great gift to receive, the compliments are well deserved!!

Oh, wow. Wow wow wow. I didn't know such a thing existed, and now I do, the world has just become a better place.
I want one so badly! Think I could DIY one...?
