Vintage Revamp

Last Friday was Dixie Doll Heather's birthday. She loves Tiki/Hawaiian bamboo stuff so for her gifts, I took a plain vintage bamboo purse that I got at a thrift store and snazzed it up a bit along with a matching flower hair accessory.
For the revamp of the purse I made a black fabric interior liner (so things wouldn't fall through the slits) and then attached the flower on to the exterior. For the hair accessory, I hot glued black ribbon and a flower on to a hair clip.
I wish I would have brought my camera to get a picture of her with her gifts! She was all dolled up and looked soo adorable!

Overwhelmingly jealous of Heather - that has to be the coolest purse of all time! With your additions, of course.
