“PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF”

Hi there! I was created by the nice lady. She calls me a purse, but I’m confused. I am a decorated wooden box, with a handle. She’s never used me as a purse, or hand bag, or anything, really. I could be a treasure box, or a jewelry box, or a memento box, but so far I’ve just sat here looking cute.

The nice lady glued all kinds of things onto me. Mostly the items are things to do with all the pets she’s had over the years. There are photos of the cats and dogs, a parakeet, and gerbils, and there is a photo of her, when she was a little girl. She called herself ‘Critter Girl’.  There is also beads, a dog tag, and chain. Inside you can look at yourself in a little round mirror. The handle beads spell out ‘Friends’, which is a nice touch, as all her pets were her friends.

Several more box/purses were made to give to her daughters and sister, with photos of memories of them on the sides and back. The nice lady has two more blank boxes she could decorate someday. 🙂

Q – What fashion did you like most, and least from your younger years?

The fashions I liked most back then was bell-bottom pants. I was pretty much the first one of my friends in Jr. High School, to get a pair. I remember they weren’t jeans, but a dark blue fabric, and had a white shoestring type lace up front panel. Everyone was impressed…haha. The only thing was, we weren’t allowed to wear pants of any type to school. This was in the 60s, and girls had to wear dresses, and the length had to be mid-knee, or we’d get sent home to change. That’s what I didn’t like about the fashions back then. I wanted to wear my cool bell-bottom pants! The very year after I graduated H.S., girls were finally allowed to wear pants.

Other fashions I liked after school was your basic hippie clothes. I had it all, from the tie-dyed t-shirts (I made a lot of these), hoop earrings, water buffalo sandals, leather purses with fringe, and long, bead necklaces that we’d string, using those tiny, multi-colored beads we’d buy in the sewing notions part of the dime store. I still love all those kinds of fashion/clothes, and still wear them. 🙂
