Vintage Crochet Bag

For White Wednesday I thought I'd show you my pretty little vintage crochet bag.
The woman who made this probably used a lovely shade of off white or ecru crochet thread.
Now it reminds me of the lovely aging on old ironstone.


I love the crochet dangles...or whatever they are called...


It's well 'aged' but I think it's pretty this way.


Someday I will learn how to crochet these stuffed balls!

Thanks for stopping!

Pretty little bad and they always look better with a little age to them. Love the little dangle balls on it.

Wow what a cool unique bag! The color is great for fall.

Such a beautiful bag.
Actually very taken with it, would you mind if I made my own copy of it?

It looks so fragile in that seasoned color. So unique with the stuffed balls. What a fun find.

Gorgeous purse. I love those dangles too. Maybe if I practice a LOT I can figure out how to make something like that.
