Dear Friend,

I bought this pansy needlepiont bag a couple of weeks ago at one of my favourite thrift shops- I never leave empty handed, it always has a special something!

Isn’t she sweet!

I had spotted it in a glass case the week earlier but resisted its charms…. I occassionally go through boughts of self denial….very, very occassionally.

 When she was still there the next week I just knew she had been waiting for me to take her home.

Judging by the inside finishings I think it was a handmade needlepoint project that was stitched onto to a bought frame- I’ve never seen that kind of rick rack on a commercial bag before;

and her pearl clasp is particularly nice;

Pansies are my favourite flower, especially the pink and violet coloured ones, I grow them in pots on my back porch every Autumn/Winter and I will be planting mine next week. I love their happy ‘faces’ and the rich velvety colours and texture.

It seemed fitting that I found her at just the right time of year.
