A wonderful surprise

Today I received the sweetest gift in the mail.

A blogger friend of mine, Granny J @   Grannys Place 
 makes and sells handbags on her blog.    She actually takes "Plastic Bags and the Tape from old Cassettes" and crochets them into such attractive bags for so many uses.

 My two bags (yes, she sent me two)   are for "Make Up" or can be used  to store small items in your handbag.  The smaller bag has a little wristlet to carry money or keys, with a varelco closer to use  when out on a walk.

When I first heard of  'Plastic Bags" crocheted  into womens purses and make up bags I really questioned the feel of the bag.... but I'm totally amazed at how soft to the touch they are.  I also think these might be so easy to keep clean.  They can not be stained!

I've borrowed a photo from "Grannys Place" so you could see the handbag that I really want and hopefully Granny will put it aside for me until I can send a check to cover the cost.
Oh NO!!  This bag was Sold!  
Let me congratulate you on the sale and wish many more sales in the future.

It's not a wonder, look how good it looks!  Maybe Granny can recreate another to look like Bag #3... I just see myself using it in the summer.

If your all interested, click on over to  "Grannys Place"  take a look at her creations.   

Granny,, Thank you so much for the wonderful surprise.  
Put a smile on my face today that may last for quite sometime.

I'm so glad you like the bags. It was my pleasure to send them to you. I'm sure I can't make an exact copy of the bag you liked but I'll try to make another you'll like just as well.

I received the mint seeds yesterday and when I opened the mailbox the fragrance was wonderful. I'll have the best smelling yard in the neighborhood.

What a wonderful idea, I have never seen these before. It's so amazing what people can come up with.
