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

  30. Kara Vanderbijl says:

    how very lovely (& spunky too!) count me in.

  31. Christine Geltz says:

    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!

  32. Pirate Trish says:

    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!

  59. Maria S. says:

    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
