black-cat-handbag, lucky for some but not the cat

Yet more very odd handbags.  This one  reminds me of a book I read once called   ‘101 uses of a dead cat’.  Aw and I love cats too.  You can see why the book sprang to mind though can’t you?  I guess the zip or opening is in the stomach…. oh deary me!

Another strange one is this Owl handbag, it’s kind of cute really.  But  you know what they say – A bird in one hand is worth two in the bush…I’ll get my coat on now (and take my handbag with me…. lol!

This handbag is called a Kazillion and it’s a vintage one, (being made of bakelite).  I’m quite nostalgic where bakelite is concerned.  It was one of the first plastics  and you can still pick up items made from it.

These purses (or handbags) by American artist Kathleen Dustin  aren’t weird or whacky…well perhaps a wee bit whacky. Whacky equals GOOD  in my opinion though!  These designs made me gasp, they’re just so, well – beautiful and very feminine!

These handbags by Judith Leiber are too good to miss!  I just had to add them.  I love the way they sparkle, but I’m not sure about some of the themes….
