A Rose Clutch from Etsy

I love Etsy. And I love the {merchandise} offered by fellow blogger {A Bushel and A Peck}. You can see her wares by clicking on her Etsy store on the right side bar of her blog. So when she had a sale this month, I succumbed to temptation and bought a clutch from her Etsy store. It arrived last week, but I was not able to get to posting about it until today. The clutch came wrapped beautifully with lots of attention to the details-- a vintage ribbon, a thankyou note, an old address label stamped on a tag. All very sweet.

The clutch is made from a line of fabrics by {Anna Maria Horner} called "Social Climber". I think it is one of the more beautiful fabrics that features roses that I have seen lately. The gathered ruffle that adorns the flap and closure is what makes this clutch so appealing. That and the large button. The pale pink liner sets off the bright pink and green of the outer fabric so well.

Inside you can see her label that says "a bushel and a peck." I will use this cute little clutch to carry on special occasions (maybe going out to eat?). Now I just need to make myself a bigger bag to carry all the trappings that a mother of four small children has to strap to herself "just in case"!
