This straw purse was mine when I was little. My sister had
a similar one, a little larger. The fascinating thing to me was
the toggle closing.
I noticed it in my closet the other day, amongst the clutter, and
wondered what was in it. Then I thought I’d let you look in there
with me . . .(*Double click on the photos to enlarge, use “back” arrow to return to my article . . .)
Ah-h, cluttery stuff!! I love it!
Those old playing cards are about two inches long. And that watch face has two little “brass” kids on a teeter-totter and when you
wind the watch, they go back and forth—tick-tock.
At the top of the photo is a sweet little antique box that says “Rouge”.
And the two little dark metal dishes – antiques –
(that I should take a better picture of, but everything’s put back
in the closet!) are little laundry baskets or something, miniature–with molding that looks like wicker.
And do you know what this is?? It’s an old ribbon string with lots of
Crackerjack prizes attached. I know it dates to the early 1940’s because I bought it from a lady with all of her old 40’s toys—she had kept
everything! I kept this because I thought it was neat.
What clutter do you have?
