...I'M HANGIN' UP MY PURSE(S ) .....

I don't possess a walk-in closet, or even a large closet (cue violins) ... but I have quite a collection of purses. Some of them are Pieces of Art...


.... like this one....which I posted about here




.... or this one.... which I posted about here



I have run out of room in my measly closet. So what's a girl to do with her fabulous purses?

Designer thinking cap is on.....



... by jove, I've got it! 


I will hang my favourite purses on the wall and display them ... AS ART ... because that is what they are




So I did this little DIY.... on the cheap!




.....ET VOILA....






I haven't mentioned this little beauty. She is a small vintage purse I found at an antique sale and used at my daughter's wedding this past February. Take a look at the clasp and the purse detail.




Fabulous Form and Function
...if I do say so myself. 


(the only thing is, I now have to dust these beauties......and I abhor dusting)

I abhor dusting too, but this is an amazing way to create art and enjoy your beautiful purses at the same time :-) Very cool & creative idea :-)

Great idea Maureen! And like you I could definitely do without the dusting...cue "hiring a cleaner".

Thank you Pam....you probably have little glass baubles that can be fasented to a nail or screw that can then be nailed /screwed into a wall ..or better yet...you could design one specifically for that purpose
