Best find ever

... a.k.a the tapestry purse I found at By Retro when I was in Istanbul. I'm gonna go wild and say it's maybe 1940s but I am not sure, and the lady there didn't know either. It's condition is so amazing, it makes me want to hug the purse. The floral rose pattern is beautiful and I loved the peach lining. What's not to love if you get the matching coin purse and the hand mirror with the same fabric? Absolutely nothing at all. I am torn between hiding it under my pillow to keep it away from the wild world out there and using it every day so I can make myself proud. This is my new favourite bag and I may just start to dress up every day so I can have an excuse to use this lady. I don't know who you are, Talette Margarete Rostock but your purse is in good hands, I shall love it and keep it.

We are at an end of a week long holiday here and I would be lying if I said I was excited to go back to work on Monday. Maybe I can hide under my bed with my new purse and books until the next holiday arrives. Poke me when it's time to do nothing at all again.
