What’s In Your Purse Series: Week Twenty Two.

Hey you.  Yes YOU.  Have you submitted your purse for this series yet?  I didn’t think so.  What’s the holdup?  Dishes?  I hear you, mine are totally all over the counter right now.  It’s okay, pause for a minute wherever you are and take a photo of your purse.  Take one of the outside, one of the inside and send them my way.  You can find me here:  allisonATpetitelefantDOTcom.  You know I love you for it already.

This week’s: What’s In Your Purse Series purse is from my awesome friend Sue Bradford.  Aren’t you in love with the tassels?  Yes, please.

  1. ~j. :

    I’d live in Sue’s purse, it’s JUST that clean and organized. And you KNOW it smells good.

    • Allison :

      It just looks like it smells good, doesn’t it?

  2. Sue :

    I’m just a little concerned about how the items don’t line up with the tile lines.

    Thanks for featuring me Allison!
