An ORANGE Purse

I'm not really shouting at you, but this purse is really orange, and it's really big, too.



I don't think I've ever had an orange bag calling my name before, but this one did.



I just happened to run across a nice purse organizer insert on Monday and bought it figuring it would come in handy. Yesterday, it came in handy. I'm not sure there won't be days when this bag seems a little too 'out there' but for now, it's just what I want.

I finished knitting the Filati vest and did all the finishing on it. It's nice, but I have decided that it needs a little tweaking, and I'm going to try to pick up some stitches and add to the length. I'm hoping it will be a success, but you never know. If it never sees the light of day, it will mean either that it wasn't a success, or that I never got it done. Oh well. I think a drapey yarn would have been a better choice, but if I can get the length it needs, that may do the trick.

Ohhh I love orange. This purse if fabulous, I understand why it called your name. I like wearing all black with a coloured purse or coloured shoes. I makes the accessory bright in the dark sort to speak. Wonderful.

Leslie, I have to confess, I found it at Wal-Mart when we were just walking through. The feel of it is amazing for "faux leather", and the price was right, especially for something so seasonal. I can't remember now if it was $12 or $14. It was a quick decision, though. :)
