Zigzag Tapestry Bag. 1960s. Maker: Unknown, but suspect it to be a Faye Mell. Black vinyl purse with zigzag three-dimensional upholstery-style fabric in rich autumn colors on the front. Goldtone accents, hardware and feet. I love tapestry bags and have a number of them. They’re big, they’re bulky and they feeeeeeel nice. For me, it’s all about the texture and the 3-D effect. I also have a lot of “Ribbon Lady” pictures from the ‘30s-‘60s, as well as a collection of Victorian hair jewelry, if that tells you anything—like, for instance, that I have some sort of psychological disorder.

Yep, she's one hot, flamey purse. As for my house, I have a friend who refers to it as "the museum." But in my museum, you can play with everything!
