Vinyl Record Purse
3 Vinyl Records + Daydreaming and scheming ÷ Frustration = Vinyl Record Purse
I am not a big fan of Bing Crosby or anything (but the other record on the flip side of the purse is "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" and I do like that song... I am Irish, ye know. I really chose the records for the purse because I really like the colors and the Decca design. As I was going through the records at Goodwill, I first narrowed my choices by artist, then by the design in the center.
Decca Design: A+
My dad told me what those hooky things are connected to the purse and strap... I definitely colored 2 of them with Sharpie to match the black. I am very impressed with my dad though, I kept going out to his barn and asking for things like this:
Me: Dad do you have any like half-moon hooky things that are open in the middle so I can bend it and hook it to this hole?
Dad: Oh you mean, __________ (Insert correct term here... I already forgot.)
Me: Dad can I use one of your drills?
Dad: For what?
Me: To drill through records.
Dad: (scratches head...)
But he let me borrow them!
Also doubles as a clutch-like purse.
West Side Story Bottom.
Inside. Remember those laundry bags I got in NYC? Oh yeah, they make a great lining.
It fits lots of stuff. Awesome chapstick from this fiber arts festival I went to. Duck change purse. Sunnies. Polaroid Camera ( I was taking photos by the road so I could get a Polaroid of 2 birds on a wire... Regina Spektor song, anyone? ... I did not succeed in that.)
You can barely see it in this photo, but I have a little birdie in my hair. A new bobby pinned knickknack I've glued together.
My mom and sister think the birds are totally dumb. I think it is an awesome excuse to let my hair look like a bird's nest.
Birdies, and butterfly. I love the bluebird. :) I also have 5 other colors of the butterfly. I got these little guys at Hobby Lobby-- 3 white birds for 2$, 2 Bluebirds for 2$, and 6 butterflies for 2$. I love America.
