Okay, last one, I promise. I can't get enough of creating and designing, and one thing usually leads to another.

It is exponential, this creative process. One design leads me to other ideas, to more ideas, to a long, long list of things I want to do.

Pretty little black evening bag with pheasant feathers, beads that fell off a necklace, and faux leather fabric to top it all off.

And one more today.

This little gem was kind of crushed and misshapen on the bottom. Adding the fabric, bling and feathers hid the problem and made it...well, made it.

Another vintage find, this bag was plain black. Adding white turkey feathers and a "crystal" brooch gave it some zing.

Guinea feathers are a nice added touch, I think.

Sometimes a bag needs a little help. I enjoy finding vintage bags, or close to vintage, and embellishing them with all kinds of doo-dads. Here is one

with a terrific shape, but just kind of plain. Adding some black turkey feathers, an old brooch, and a dangley key make it a little more interesting and a conversation piece.
