Hello my dears, this was another one of my Paris flea market finds. I had it listed in my eBay store, but I’m clearing out the Paris inventory to make way for treasures from San Francisco.

Would you like to have it? It’s lovely: made of silk with a green glass bead handle. The latch looks like an green jeweled antique brooch. It’s large enough for lipstick, a few euros and tickets to the opera!

Please leave a comment to enter! The winner will be announced Monday. Thank you! Meanwhile, I’m off to explore more of San Francisco…xoxo

  3. What a classic bag! I love that it's for the opera – one of my favorite pastimes! I hope I win that Paris treasure!

  4. This is gorgeous! Since everyone is giving *green* facts, my last name used to be Green… that totally counts, right? 😀

  5. Exquisite! It reminds me of a metal purse I made when I was still in art school, in a similar pyramid shape. This is way more practical and elegant!

  6. God this is gorgeous! Envying you San Francisco: we have yet more snow here – spring can't come quickly enough!

  7. I have absolutely no use for it, but that purse is just too beautiful to pass up a chance to win it. Wow. Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. What girl could possibly resist? Though I'm tempted to hop on a train to Paris and go flea market shopping myself! I never seem to find such treasures though!

  9. eek! I'm in love with this little thing! I would display it when not using it, it is far too cute to go into the purse closet!

  10. Green, you say??? I AM green… I live green… my little eponymous company that is trying to save the planet through energy and water efficiency (that I'm proud to say is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month–we were green before it was cool) is green and so are all our employees… I couldn't be greener if I were Kermit the Frog (and by the way, it IS easy being green, with our help). On top of all this, I majored in French (as an undergraduate) and adore wandering through the Parisian flea markets and love repurposing vintage couture like this as part of a sustainable lifestyle. This delightful little treasure would make a perfect anniversary keepsake!

  11. ou, ah. green like 13 days into spring eating apples on the back porch and feeling a warm breeze flutter your hair as the neighbor's cat stalks you from under a chair.

  12. That is my favorite color!!!!!!! I love, love, love it. What else would you need with the perfect little black dress than this bag!

  13. How can you part with this little Parisian treasure?? It's so unique and so lovely. My heart just sings when I look at it. Oh, Lady Luck, please be with me!!!

  14. Well, I thought I had the bag "in the bag" until I scrolled down and read the entry from Christine Geltz. She not only included my Kermit quote, but she seems like a much more legitimate candidate! Thanks for offering a giveaway … and enjoy San Francisco!

  15. The perfect acid green, the color of hope and spring, all contained in a lovely little bag.

    "This was a house dedicated to writing; a variety of pots held all sort of pens, pencils and erasers, but there was only one sort of ink available: green the color of hope."
    From "A Well-Kept House" by Laura Fronty

  16. I'm Celtic and a Taurean and have green eyes….yes…I love Green and that little bag is the most perfect little find. You have a fabulous eye for treasures something which you convey in your photography…

  17. What a lovely art piece, entrenched in vintage glamour in a contemporary inspiring colour. It's a real life fairytale bag isn't it? And definately has it's own story.I'd certainly like to fill it with some french inspirations of my own. Regards, Therese

  18. Oh My, What a darling bag. I think I would put it in a shadow box and hang it on the wall just so I could look at it all day. Cameron

  19. I have always wanted to go and watch Rigoletto wearing a statement piece. Please let it be mine *O* Have fun in San Francisco!

  20. Love this…!
    The rich warm golden green reminds of the interior of Opera Garnier.
    Fingers crossed…X
    Have fun in SF…!

  21. Yes, please! I would LOVE to win this beauty! It would be perfect with my chinese, lime-green rabbit fur, that I also use for the opera :-)
    Now I´m heading over to have a look at your ETSY-treasures.
    Have a nice day!

  22. Luscious Lime lovely, I would love this yummy bag:)
    You have a beautiful inspiring blog.

  23. Oh, NO!! Hope I didn't miss it! I loved watching and reading about your adventures in Paris…wonder how I missed that you had stuff on ebay!
