So this is Day Two of my "I Can't Believe It's Been a Year" giveaway. See this post for details or to enter. Perhaps you didn't enter yesterday because the turtle bag is not your thing? Well, here's the second basket purse - it has the classic Caro-Nan buildings on the lid.
Caro-Nan traveled to different cities and personalized the baskets by painting the names of local landmarks and shops (including, of course, the shop that carried Caro-Nan!) and this one has a particularly detailed painting. This one features the Bonnet Shop and Book Nook - perhaps one of you will know these shops and tell us the city!
This one also has a bit of damage as seen here. I would still carry this as a handbag, but you could also find decorative uses for it - you'll see the hastily arranged plants to give you an idea. (Not to worry - the red fabric interior is well protected!)
One other thing that is really special about this Caro-Nan is the mirror inside the lid - and the original owner's name on an address label. Isn't that sweet?
Again, thanks to all of you who visited my blog over the past year and especially to those who commented and e-mailed. And good luck to all of you who enter - I'll e-mail the winner with details about the condition of both baskets so you can make an informed choice!
Stop by tomorrow for a chat about Iced Tea Month and that pesky iced beverage spoon!
