Yep - it's a real live Magnolia Pearl! You KNOW how my heart has longed for one. I was so thrilled to meet Elizabeth through ebay and discover that she not only has a collection of Robin's bags, but she is also a good friend of Robins (she's in the Marburger set-up video). Elizabeth was kind enough to let me make payments for one of the first bags that Robin had made for her.
And to celebrate, I made a wallet from some old needlepoint (the tattered, vinyl cartoon one just wasn't going to cut it).
In fact, I was so excited that I made a couple for our Friday Flea Market too. Don't you think the cameo looks a bit like Miss Pearl? If you'd like to take a peek, there's a few photos on our Flickr Group page. Be sure to check back tomorrow - The flea market is going to be a batch of old fashioned fun this week =)
