The Scalloped Lady

Everyday Matters Challenge #3: A purse, wallet, or bag

One of my favorite collections is that of beaded evening bags. I call them my Ladies of the Evening.
Most of my Ladies are from a by-gone era (though none are true antiques).

They come is such pretty shapes. Some have frames, like this one. I hold them tenderly and think about the hands of women across the world who have sat down to embroider them and bead the intricate patterns.

And when I use them, their iridescent beading glows in the night.
